Scaramucci Attacks GOP Senators

( – Trying to divide the GOP over its candidate, former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci attacked a couple of Republican senators for supporting former President Trump in his hush money trial.

Scaramucci called Senators J.D. Vance (R-OH) and Tommy Tuberville (R-AL) “spineless sycophants” for going to Manhattan, where Trump’s case is playing out.

A former Trump official himself, Scaramucci said Trump is “destroying the Republican Party.”

“So, there’s … very few people with any backbone left in that party,” he said leftwing CNN. “And those people standing out there, they’re just spineless sycophants.”

His comments came after Vance and Tuberville spoke near the New York courthouse where Trump is on trial.

The former president is being tried for allegedly falsifying business records related to payments he made in 2016 to silence adult film star Stormy Daniels, who claimed she had an affair with Trump in 2006.

In turn, Trump denies the affair and has labeled the trial a witch hunt seeking to prevent him from winning the presidency a second time.

Trump’s former lawyer, Michael Cohen, supposedly paid Daniels and got repaid by Trump. Cohen testified Monday, which prompted criticism from Vance.

The Ohio senator called Cohen a convicted felon and said no “reasonable, sensible person” should believe him.

Meanwhile, Tuberville said the trial was “the most depressing thing” he has seen and criticized the Manhattan district attorney.

The Alabama senator said he was there more as a friend than to support Trump’s candidacy.

Scaramucci dismissed this, saying the senators are doing “whatever Donald Trump wants.”

He added that Trump’s staunchest supporters are looking at poll numbers and social media, believing Trump “has already won the election.” “So, that’s why they’re there,” Scaramucci said.

His remarks come as Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA) is also expected to visit the Manhattan courthouse.

Now a vocal critic of Trump, Cohen is set to testify again today. He’s a key figure in the trial, with prosecutors claiming he made the $130,000 hush money payment to Daniels before the 2016 election.
