Anthony Scaramucci, the new White House communications director, is off to a great start in dealing with questions on the Sunday shows. Even though U.S. intelligence agencies agree that Russia meddled in the 2016 presidential election, Scaramucci, like his boss, continued to deny it to CNN host Jake Tapper. He also lied and called Donald Trump Jr. a ‘great guy’ who did nothing wrong.
On Sunday’s State of the Union program, Tapper asked Scaramucci if amateur president Donald Trump was prepared to sign a sanctions bill against Russia, Raw Story reports.
“There’s a lot of misinformation,” Scaramucci said. “Somebody said to me the other day — I don’t want to say who — if the Russian actually hacked this situation and spilled out those emails, you would have never seen it. You would have never had any evidence of them. Meaning that they’re super confident in their deception skills and hacking.”
“Wait, wait, wait,” Tapper fired back. “I don’t know who this anonymous person is.”
“How about it’s the president, Jake,” Scaramucci said of his anonymous source. “He called me from Air Force One and basically said to me, ‘This is — maybe they did it, maybe they didn’t do it.’”
Tapper took him to task for dismissing the Intelligence community’s unanimous conclusion.
“This is exactly the issue!” Tapper said. “We have experts, the U.S. intelligence agencies [are] unanimous, both Obama appointees and Trump appointees — the director of national intelligence, the head of the National Security Agency, the head of the FBI. I mean, all of these intelligence experts, saying, Russia hacked the election, they tried to interfere in the election.”
“President Trump is contradicting it and you’re siding with President Trump!” Tapper said.
At one point, Tapper said, “Don’t you owe a duty to the truth?”
If Trump is Scaramucci’s anonymous source on Russia trying to help get his boss elected then we’re in for quite a shit show for as long as the new White House communications Director can keep his job. Because, Trump was also the ‘source’ for saying that former President Barack Obama, who was born in Hawaii, was born in Kenya.
