Did they talk about pardons or didn’t they?
White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci on Sunday said he and Trump discussed pardons during a meeting last week in the Oval Office.
“I’m in the Oval Office with the President last week, we’re talking about that, he says he brought that up,” Scaramucci said on “Fox News Sunday,” referring to Trump’s tweet about pardons.
Trump on Saturday claimed “all agree the U. S. President has the complete power to pardon.”
His tweet came amid reports that Trump has inquired about his authority as it pertains to pardoning his staffers, family members and even himself.
Jay Sekulow, an attorney on Trump’s outside legal team, said Sunday that “pardons are not on the table.”
“We have not, and continue to not, have conversations with the President of the United States regarding pardons. Pardons have not been discussed,” Sekulow said.
The new guy, Scaramucci, and the mouthpiece, Sekulow, need to figure out which lie is the one they’re going with before they go on TV. Or at least run their lines with each other.
