Scaramucci says Pelosi is ‘the smartest person’ amid Democratic calls for impeachment
Anthony Scaramucci on how Trump can move past the Mueller report and onto his agenda
Former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci offers his advice to President Trump and looks ahead to the 2020 election.
Former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci praised House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., noting her smarts in resisting pressure to impeach the president after the release of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's report.
"I think the smartest person is actually Speaker Pelosi," he told "Fox and Friends" on Friday. Scaramucci said that while he understood Democrats tried to use the impeachment issue to raise money off of their base's anger, it would be a bad strategy going into the 2020 elections.
He said that Democrats should, instead, focus on finding a candidate who could beat President Trump. Though Trump has a good shot at winning in 2020, Scaramucci commented, Sanders was a "formidable" opponent and even the president admitted that on the campaign trail.
Sanders, who has led the declared Democratic candidates in polling, has received mixed reactions from his own party. Earlier this week, former Obama campaign manager Jim Messina predicted Sanders wouldn't be able to pull off a victory.
