SCARAMUCCI: Somebody, said to me yesterday - I won't tell you who - that if the Russians actually hacked this situation and spilled out those emails, you would have never seen it, you would have never had any evidence of them.
In his new communications role, the energetic Scaramucci now describes the president as "genuinely a wonderful human being". The meeting is beginning to feel like a clown auto - one more person keeps jumping out just when you think the vehicle is empty. "There are things happening in the White House that the president does not like, and we'll put an end to it".
Scaramucci used the question as an opportunity to remind Harvard Law School Professor Laurence Tribe, a Trump critic who recently insisted that the president can not pardon himself, that he got an A- in his storied constitutional law course. "What you are suggesting?"
"The mainstream media position on this, that they interfered in the election", Scaramucci said.
But Scaramucci also said on "Fox News Sunday": "I'm in the Oval Office with the President last week, we're talking about that". "You're going to delegitimize his victory?" "He called me from Air Force One, and he basically said to me, 'Hey, you know, this is, maybe they did it, maybe they didn't do it'". He said Trump would make up his own mind in time and that if Trump believed Russian Federation was responsible for the 2016 efforts and a threat to future elections, he would act.

But, Scaramucci has been behind the scenes, working for the White House team since early this year. Sanders said only that his job is safe "at this time".
The spokesman was on the hot seat for weeks, a victim of the criticism of his boss in the face to the disorder in the communication of the executive, which the president himself is accused to contribute with his tweets and his interviews.
Tapper referenced a Washington Post report that Trump has consulted advisers about his power to pardon aides, family members and himself in connection with the investigation. Scaramucci also knocked Trump for "the way he talks about women" and for his "big mouth".
"The truth of the matter is that the President is not going to have to pardon anybody because the Russian Federation thing is a nonsensical thing", Scaramucci added.
He praised Trump and said he was "proud" to join his administration. Like President Donald Trump, he came from Manhattan and has built a reputation as a salesman.
