Scaramucci Calls Out CNN for Lack of Collusion Evidence

The new White House communications director fought back against the media’s coverage.

In an appearance on “State of the Union,” newly minted White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci called out CNN’s Jake Tapper for the media’s lack of collusion evidence, despite their obsession with the topic.

Scaramucci called the Russia story “bogus” and said that the media was manufacturing the story in order to hinder President Trump’s agenda.

Tapper listed out all of the investigations into Russia’s interference in the 2016 election as justification for the media’s coverage.

“Have they found any evidence that the president or anybody in the campaign has colluded with the Russians, Jake?” Scaramucci asked.

“I don’t know,” Tapper responded.

The incoming White House Communications Director pointed out that former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort and White House Advisor Jared Kushner would testify to Congress this week and put this issue to rest.

Tapper also pushed Scaramucci on reports that the president was seeking to pardon himself and his inner circle.

“The president’s not going to have to pardon anybody because the Russia thing is a nonsensical thing,” he answered.
