There's no going back for Anthony Scaramucci

  There's no going back for Anthony Scaramucci Anthony Scaramucci took no salary during his short tenure as White House communication director — yet his 10-day career detour could end up costing him more than $7.5 million. That's because the New York hedge fund founder left the White House before he could obtain a "certificate of divestiture" giving him the special tax treatment available to federal employees who give up assets in order to avoid conflicts of interest. Without that certificate, the sale of Scaramucci's SkyBridge Capital to a Chinese holding company will be taxed at the capital gains rate of 15%.

Former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci on Sunday said President Donald Trump should have been “ much harsher ” in condemning white supremacy after clashes at a Charlottesville rally left one person dead and dozens injured.

President Donald Trump ’s response to Saturday’s violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, should have been “ much harsher ” on the white supremacists whose rally sparked the bloodshed, former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci said on Sunday.

Conversations with the TPM community

Former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci on Sunday said President Donald Trump should have been “much harsher” in condemning white supremacy after clashes at a Charlottesville rally left one person dead and dozens injured.

“I think he needed to be much harsher as it related to the white supremacists and the nature of that,” Scaramucci said on ABC News’ “This Week.”

Trump declined to condemn white supremacy in a series of tweets where he called the violence “sad!” and condemned “all that hate stands for.” In remarks later Saturday afternoon, he called the clashes an “egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides.”
