Several administration officials filed their financial disclosure statements late, which some see as a byproduct of the current White House "culture," according to McClatchy DC.

  • What happened: Jared Kushner, Reince Priebus, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, and 15 other White House staffers filed late financial disclosure statements. Kushner was fined $200 by the Office of Government Ethics.
  • Why it matters: Lawrence Noble, general counsel of the Campaign Legal Center, said this is "a culture." Harrell Kirstein, spokesman for the Trump War Room at American Bridge 21st century (Democratic opposition group), said Trump "acts like the rules...don't apply to him," and his administration is following suit.
  • One more thing: 13 other staffers, including Bannon and Conway, were issued certificates of divestiture to avoid taxes on assets they are required to sell due to conflict of interest. However, there are not yet records of 10 of the 13 selling the assets.

Pelosi says Mnuchin told her White House is "not budging" on stimulus position

Democrats and the Trump administration remain "miles apart" on negotiations over a coronavirus stimulus deal, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said on Wednesday.

The latest: Around 3 p.m., Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) issued a statement saying that Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin had initiated a phone call and made clear that the White House is "not budging from their position concerning the size and scope of a legislative package."

New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy (D) announced Wednesday he will sign an executive order allowing private and public K-12 schools and universities to reopen for in-person learning in September.

The big picture: New York and New Jersey have now authorized school districts to begin reopening. Both states and Connecticut ordered travelers from 31 states to quarantine before crossing their state borders after they were able to manage the pandemic.
