Former White House press secretary Anthony Scaramucci will be openly campaigning against President Donald Trump.
“I can no longer in good conscience support the president’s reelection,” Scaramucci, also known as “The Mooch,” wrote in a Washington Post op-ed published online Monday night.
Now he’s going even further. Republican strategist Mike Murphy tweeted Tuesday that Scaramucci is “launching and funding a new SuperPAC to run ads against Trump.”
The announcement apparently came on Murphy’s podcast with David Axelrod.
“I can take five points off him,” Scaramucci said.

Trump campaign thought their ‘huge news’ on pre-existing conditions had Democrats cornered — but it backfired spectacularly
During a bizarre Friday evening press conference at his private golf club in New Jersey, President Donald Trump vowed to protect Americans with pre-existing conditions.
Of course, Trump does not need an executive order to accomplish such a goal, as it is already federal law in the Affordable Care Act, that was passed a decade ago by congressional Democrats and then-President Barack Obama.
Trump campaign advisors soon took to Twitter to praise Trump's promise as "huge news."
"Huge news just now - [Trump] announces upcoming EO to cover pre-existing conditions. Big, big, big news," campaign senior advisor Jason Miller tweeted.

Top US counter intelligence official formally announces Russia working to attack Biden, helping Trump win re-election
The top counterintelligence official in the United States government has just released an official statement saying the Intelligence Community is actively working to help President Donald Trump get re-elected.
"We assess that Russia is using a range of measures to primarily denigrate former Vice President Biden and what it sees as an anti-Russia 'establishment.' This is consistent with Moscow’s public criticism of him when he was Vice President for his role in the Obama Administration’s policies on Ukraine and its support for the anti-Putin opposition inside Russia," states National Counterintelligence and Security Center (NCSC) Director William Evanina.
