Former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci appeared on CNN today in order to talk about the last few days of news regarding President Trump and the investigations into Russia.
“The Mooch” had a broad-range conversation with Dana Bash on State of the Union, and Bash asked him about the GOP’s recent condemnations of the Justice Department. In terms of Trump’s slams, Scaramucci argued that the president wants the FBI to be de-politized and for due process to be given to everyone involved.
Scaramucci made this point while citing Trump’s recent comments to The New York Times about how he expects Robert Mueller will be fair in his investigation.
“I really don’t think he’s worried about it,” Scaramucci said. “When you really uncover the data and the information, you’ll find that the president was nowhere near the Russians as it related to the campaign, the election or anything thereof.”
Even if the president isn’t worried, however, Scaramucci also said that Trump is “frustrated” by the endless political scandals that bog down Washington at every turn.
“The great news about the president is he’s undistracted, he’s undeterred, and I think he’ll have a phenomenal 2018,” said Scaramucci.
Interestingly, neither Bash nor Scaramucci brought up the Times‘ most recent report which has several intriguing details about why former Trump aide George Papadopoulos is the reason why the FBI launched an investigation into the 2016 campaign.
