- Former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci calls President Trump a ‘traitor’
- Scaramucci contends Trump’s pushing Ukraine to investigate the Bidens is a ‘full-blown disaster’ for the U.S.
- Trump has denied there was a quid pro quo involved in his request to Ukraine
- Scaramucci had an 11-day stint as Trump White House Communications Director
Donald Trump has been blasted by his former communications director Anthony Scaramucci, who branded the President a ‘traitor to the United States’ for his dealing with Ukraine and China.
Scaramucci, who had a 11-day stint as Trump’s communications director in July 2017, has since become a vocal critic of the President and other Republicans.
In his latest interview, ‘The Mooch’ hit out on CNN about Trump’s July phone call to the Ukranian president pushing for an investigation into political rival Joe Biden.
He blasted: ‘I hear rank criminality. I hear pressure on American diplomats coming from above to push them to do things that are actually a revocation of the Constitution.’
He said Trump is trying to gaslight America about the allegations against him.
He said: ‘Today by declaring and calling on China to investigate his political adversary, that’s full-blown Trumpian gaslighting. He’s trying to do that in the open.’
As the House steps up its impeachment inquiry, Scaramucci said, ‘This is a full-blown disaster.’

But Scaramucci didn’t hold back his feelings about the Republican loyalists either.
‘What I’m shocked by is that there are 53 senators who haven’t really come out and spoken out. It’s reprehensible.
‘James Madison is rolling in his grave.’
He also told CNN‘s Don Lemon that he had a ‘little bit of sadness for the country,’
Scarmucci said. ‘When the Reuters reporter asks him a very simple question, “What did you want to get out of the phone call,” and he goes up like a Saturn 5 rocket and he’s doing it on the international news, there’s a little bit of sadness for the country.’

Trump is facing heightened scrutiny for wanting Ukraine to investigate former vice president and current 2020 Democratic president frontrunner Joe Biden.
Trump has denied that there was a quid pro quo involved in his request to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to ‘look into’ Biden – a request he made during a July 25 phone call with the Ukrainian leader.
