What Trump's team is saying on pardons

Following a turbulent half-year run as White House press secretary, Mr Spicer is leaving the building with a final burst of drama after rejecting what amounted to a downsizing of his role. Sarah Huckabee Sanders was promoted Friday to replace Spicer.

Asked what he thought of the show, Mr Spicer told Fox News: "I think that there were parts of it that were amusing, but there's a lot of it that was over the line".

While stressing that his leaving the administration was in no way acrimonious, Spicer did take the opportunity to lash the "fake news media" for its "obsession" with the Russian Federation investigation that has dogged Trump's presidency from the start. "But if the president doesn't want the cameras on, we're not going to put the cameras on".

"If they want to stay on the staff, they're going to stop leaking", he told CBS television's "Face the Nation" talk show.

He declined to say whether the president will sign the bill Congress is considering that would place new sanctions on Russian Federation.

"This is obviously a hard situation but I wish him well and I hope he goes on to make a tremendous amount of money", said Mr Scaramucci, holding court yesterday in the White House press room and repeatedly professing his "love" for Mr Spicer and Mr Trump.

"And he will probably dial back some of those tweets".

Scaramucci also went after the CNN anchor for bringing up a discussion about bail money in case someone needs it by telling Tapper that it was a "super ridiculous hypothetical". "Maybe they didn't do it".

Priebus and Spicer spent years working closely together at the Republican National Committee.

During his introductory appearance at the White House, Scaramucci appeared relaxed and expressed a desire to improve the Trump administration's relationship with the U.S. media. "So, I would like to continue to use the hair and make-up person".

Scaramucci took to Twitter afterwards saying he really wasn't talking about Sanders' looks, but his own.

Scaramucci was pretty upfront about the move, letting his followers know he was deleting old tweets because his past statements "shouldn't be a distraction".

It didn't stop there, as Scaramucci foreshadowed what was to come in a wild campaign period that involved Trump, his treatment towards women and Megyn Kelly.
