Scaramucci: White House plotters seeking Trump exit

There are people in Washington DC working against President Donald Trump, the former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci has said.  He said there were “elements” within the White House trying to eject Mr Trump, and he had “named some names”.

Mr Scaramucci spoke to ABC News for the first time since being sacked last month – after just 10 days in office.

It followed a phone recording in which he strongly attacked then-White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus.  He also directed profanity-laced insults at Chief Strategist Steve Bannon.  Mr Scaramucci said he had thought the interview was off the record, and he had “paid the consequences for that conversation”.

“What happens in Washington… is the president is not a representative of the political establishment class, so for whatever reason the people have made a decision that they want to eject him,” he told George Stephanopoulos of ABC News on Sunday.  “I think there are elements inside of Washington, also inclusive in the White House, that are not necessarily abetting the president’s interests or his agenda.”

Is Provoking a Nuclear War with North Korea Grounds for Impeachment?

Thousands March to Demand Trump’s Impeachment HeadlineJul 05, 2017

Thousands of protesters marched in dozens of cities across the United States on Sunday to demand President Trump’s impeachment. Marchers took to the streets in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Austin, Philadelphia, New York City, in Davenport, Iowa, and other U.S. cities. These are two protesters in Los Angeles.

Protester 1: “Resist. And resist loud, so loud that we won’t even hear the door slam when he’s dragged out of office.”

Protester 2: “I really think his mental state is unstable. And I think everyone kind of knows that, but we don’t say it about our president.”

Meanwhile, on Capitol Hill, more than 20 Democratic lawmakers are now backing a bill introduced by Maryland Congressmember Jamie Raskin that would create a commission to determine if the president is mentally or physically unfit for office. The bill has gained support over the last week, after Trump issued sexist tweets attacking MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski, calling her “crazy” and falsely claiming she was “bleeding badly from a face-lift.”
