Appearing on MSNBC’s “AM Joy” on Saturday morning, former Trump White House communications official Anthony Scaramucci stated that Donald Trump will resign rather than sit through watching former key aides testify at his impeachment trial should they be called.
Sitting on the panel with host Reid, Scaramucci said there was no way the president could survive if former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani and former security advisor John Bolton were to be compelled to testify before the Senate on national TV.
‘Let’s talk about Republican Senate for a second,” Scaramucci s began. “They are allowing this. End of the day, he [Trump] completely broke the law. You go through the different categories, you look at the facts.”
“Joy,” he continued. “We haven’t seen the primary witness testimony. Those four people whether it’s Mulvaney, Bolton, Giuliani, Pompeo — if they have to testify under oath, he has to leave. So there’s four senators that need to be moved to allow for a full and fair trial. If that happens, scoundrel number one, he’ll leave before that testimony.”
“You think he’ll resign?” the shocked Reid asked.
“There is no way he can handle the heat of that testimony,” he shot back.

President Donald Trump has issued a formal statement on the passing of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
He called her a “titan of the law,” and praised her for her “brilliant mind” and for her “powerful dissents.” Trump also said her Supreme Court decisions “have inspired all Americans.”
Earlier, before boarding Air Force One, Trump claimed he had not known she had passed away, and said, “She just died? I didn’t know that.”
“She led an amazing life, what else can you say? Whether you agree or not … she led an amazing life.”

Trump Responds to Passing of Ruth Bader Ginsburg
President Donald Trump responded to the passing of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg Friday night.
“She just died? I didn’t know that,” Trump claimed to reporters before he boarded Air Force One at 8:15 PM, well after news broke that the beloved progressive jurist had died.
Trump was holding a campaign rally when news of her passing broke. He happened to be speaking about putting yet another justice on the nation’s top court:

‘Mitch McConnell Set the Precedent. No Supreme Court Vacancies Filled in an Election Year’ Says Dem US Senator
U.S. Senator Ed Markey, a progressive who has served in Congress for 44 years, is warning Senator Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to not bring a Trump Supreme Court nominee to the floor for a vote in the wake of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s passing.
“Mitch McConnell set the precedent,” Sen. Markey said. “No Supreme Court vacancies filled in an election year. If he violates it, when Democrats control the Senate in the next Congress, we must abolish the filibuster and expand the Supreme Court.”
McConnell minutes ago announced he will bring a Trump nominee to the Senate floor for a vote.
