On CNN’s State Of The Union, Anthony Scaramucci said that someone called him yesterday questioning Russia’s attack on the 2016 election. When host Jake Tapper pressed him, Scaramucci admitted that the person questioning whether or not Russia attacked the US was Trump.
Scaramucci said, “Somebody said to me yesterday, I won’t tell you who, that if Russians actually hacked this situation and spilled out those emails, you would have never seen it. You have never had any evidence of them. Meaning that they’re super confident in their deception skills and hacking. My point is, all of the information isn’t on the table yet.”
Jake Tapper broke in and said, “Anthony, you’re making a lot of assertions here. I don’t know who this anonymous person is that said that if the Russians would have actually done it, we wouldn’t have been able to detect it.”
Scaramucci spilled the beans, “How about it was the President, Jake? He called me from Air Force One, and he basically said to me, hey this is, maybe they did it, maybe they didn’t do it.”
Tapper pointed out that Trump’s denial that Russia attacked the election is the central issue here.
Trump’s new communications director couldn’t resist shooting off his mouth and disclosing a private conversation with the President. The result is that investigators now know that Trump has more faith in Russian intelligence than he does in the US intelligence community, and he is working behind the scenes to discredit the investigations into the Russia scandal.
Donald Trump’s communications director just set his boss up for a new obstruction of justice charge.
Just when you think, Trump and his people can’t get any more self-incriminatingly incompetent than they already are, Anthony Scaramucci goes on CNN and proves you wrong.
