The cameras are back two days in a row, and the health care talks continue. White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci will also be a big topic of conversation, after he posted and then deleted a tweet about a leak in the White House.
Watch all this and more unfold at 1:45 p.m. EST with Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders leading the briefing.
Health care is still the big topic in D.C. today. The Senate voted 51-50 on Tuesday to continue with the health care debate, but have not completed anything since. They did not pass the vote to repeal and replace Obamacare Tuesday and also lost the vote to do a “straight repeal” of Obamacare Wednesday. The debate will continue today, and we will likely see a vote on a “skinny repeal,” to take out only certain parts of Obamacare.
Scaramucci is the drama of the day however. Late in the Wednesday evening, Scaramucci deleted a tweet in which he said he “will be contacting the FBI and DOJ” after Politico published his public financial disclosure. He followed up his Twitter activity with an interview on CNN, saying that he and the President know who is leaking information from the White House, and then appeared to finger White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus as the leaker.
While there are many hot topics for the press to bring up today, many people will probably tune in to see if there will be an encore to the “Pickle” fan mail.
