Trump will resign if high-ranking aides are forced to testify in Senate impeachment trial: former administration official

Published

on

Appearing on MSNBC’s “AM Joy” on Saturday morning, former Trump White House communications official Anthony Scaramucci stated that Donald Trump will resign rather than sit through watching former key aides testify at his impeachment trial should they be called.

Sitting on the panel with host Reid, Scaramucci said there was no way the president could survive if former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani and former security advisor John Bolton were to be compelled to testify before the Senate on national TV.

‘Let’s talk about Republican Senate for a second,” Scaramucci s began. “They are allowing this. End of the day, he [Trump] completely broke the law. You go through the different categories, you look at the facts.”

“Joy,” he continued. “We haven’t seen the primary witness testimony. Those four people whether it’s Mulvaney, Bolton, Giuliani, Pompeo — if they have to testify under oath, he has to leave. So there’s four senators that need to be moved to allow for a full and fair trial. If that happens, scoundrel number one, he’ll leave before that testimony.”

“You think he’ll resign?” the shocked Reid asked.

“There is no way he can handle the heat of that testimony,” he shot back.

These ministries are pitched as alternatives to medical coverage, but they are not health insurance at all — rather, they are better described as religious crowdfunding ventures where fellow congregants may cover your medical bills. But the key word is may. According to Kelman, "these groups don't actually guarantee any payment, and if you break their rules by smoking pot or having unmarried sex, you are on your own."

Democrat ‘appalled’ by classified Senate briefing on coronavirus: ‘Should have been fully open to American people’

Published

on

Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) blasted the Trump administration for withholding information about coronavirus preparations from the public.

The administration gave senators a classified briefing Tuesday morning on the virus, which Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) warned Monday could turn into a potential pandemic unless President Donald Trump and his team took swift action.

"The Trump administration has been asleep at the wheel," Schumer said. "President Trump, good morning, there is a pandemic of coronavirus. Where are you?"

After the briefing, Blumenthal sounded like he hadn't been reassured by the administration -- and called for more transparency.
