Sean Spicer’s successor as White House communications director, Anthony Scaramucci, had an intervention this Sunday morning, revealing that president Donald Trump is ‘thinking about pardoning nobody’.
This comes as an answer to all the questions about the presumed Russian implication in the 2016 presidential election.
Everything about this issue: a nonsense
“The President’s thinking about pardoning nobody — because it has been coming up a lot. There’s an undercurrent of nonsensical stuff,” Scaramucci said to CNN, quoted by Time.
As for Donald Trump, he used Twitter, his favorite platform, on early Saturday, to talk about this issue as well: “While all agree the U. S. President has the complete power to pardon, why think of that when only crime so far is LEAKS against us.FAKE NEWS.”
CNN’s Jake Tapper made a reference to a report from the Washington Post, claiming that Donald Trump has previously consulted his aides about the ability to pardon aides, family members and himself, in connection with the investigation.
The President should keep more things to himself
“This is the problem with the whole system,” Anthony Scaramucci said. “He’s the President of the United States. If I turn to one of my staff members at SkyBridge, I ask them a question, they run out to the news media and tell everything I’m thinking about, is that fair to the President?”
Finally, the new new press secretary added the Donald Trump won’t be obliged to pardon anybody, because this entire deal with Russia is what he calls a “nonsensical thing.”
We’re looking forward to seeing if this topic will be brought up again in the press conferences…
