Ex-Trump staffer: Mulvaney needs to resign and get himself a good lawyer

Published

on

Appearing on CNN’s “New Day,” former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci suggested acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney resign immediately and lawyer up due to his complicity in Donald Trump’s Ukraine phone call seeking dirt on Joe Biden.

Ostensibly brought on to talk about his plan to attempt to draft Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) to run against Donald Trump for the 2020 Republican presidential nomination, Scaramucci — who host John Berman jokingly noted only lasted 11 days in his White House job — admitted that he was a fan of Mulvaney, but that he has put himself in a bad place.

“I feel bad for him,” Scaramucci began, causing host Berman to ask, “Why?”

“Well, because he’s a good guy,” he explained. “At the end of the day, Mulvaney’s a good guy and he’s working for a terrible person. Let’s be honest, you can’t work for a guy [Trump] like that. He’s a horrific manager, he’s like a porcupine; every time you go to touch the guy, you get cut up some way.”

“Mick Mulvaney was like that teenager in a horror movie that was scratching ‘help me’ on the fogged shower door, okay?” he continued. “That’s what he was doing last Thursday. If I were giving Mick Mulvaney advice, I would resign and get myself a really good lawyer because he’s obviously working at the direction of the president you’re going to have to explain a lot of things.”

“Here’s what happens to the president,” he warned. “The mayor has discovered this, Mayor [Rudy] Giuliani, and everybody who spends a lot of time with the president. He will continue to move the goalposts on you to get you to a point where you’re disavowing your personal integrity and your personal life story. They are there now and I want to say, you’re a good Catholic: resign and go to confession, okay? And then let’s rebuild your career from here. You were trying to help the country by being this guy’s chief of staff, it’s an impossible thing.”

Trump impeachment trial: 4 stories from first day spell doom for Mitch McConnell

Published

on

If the score was kept for the first day of the impeachment trial, it would show hefty losses for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

As Former Special Counsel for the Department of Defense, Ryan Goodman, pointed out, four major headlines perfectly reflect the cracks in the strangle-hold McConnell has had on his party.

First, McConnell was forced to change the impeachment hearing rules. After a huge uprising by Americans demanding to be able to watch the impeachment trial during normal human hours, senators told McConnell he'd lost the votes to hold proceedings after midnight.

‘Disease fanboy’: Internet slams NBC conservative for ‘rooting for pandemic’ to distract from Trump impeachment trial

Hugh Hewitt is once again under fire, this time for almost appearing to be glad a deadly SARS-related virus has been diagnosed in a patient in Washington state – saying additional diagnoses will take the focus away from the Senate's historic impeachment trial. Hewitt is a conservative Washington Post columnist, radio host, MSNBC and NBC contributor, and law professor who went from being a "Never-Trumper" to all-in for President Donald Trump.

"People care much more for their health than theater," said Hewitt via Twitter, referring to Trump's impeachment trial. The SARS-related virus, known as the Wuhan coronavirus, is named for an area of China where it was first found. It "has infected more than 300 people and killed six in an outbreak that has struck China, Thailand, South Korea, Japan and now the US," CNN reports.

Published

In 1975, New York City was run-down and on the verge of bankruptcy. Twenty-nine-year-old Donald Trump saw an opportunity. He wanted to acquire and redevelop the dilapidated Commodore Hotel in midtown Manhattan next to Grand Central Terminal.

Trump had bragged to the executive controlling the sale that he could use his political connections to get tax breaks for the deal.

The executive was skeptical. But the next day, the executive was invited into Trump’s limousine, which ushered him to City Hall. There, he met with Donald’s father Fred and Mayor Abe Beame, to whom the Trumps had given lavishly.
