President Trump is expected to announce his budget proposal this week, which could include historic cuts to the executive branch.

NPR’s Domenico Montanaro (@DomenicoNPR) talks with Here & Now’s Robin Young about the upcoming week in politics, including a deadline from the House Intelligence Committee for the Department of Justice to hand over any evidence that the Obama administration wiretapped phones at Trump Tower during the presidential campaign.
