A bit more is coming in. Apparently he resigned over the appointment of Scaramucci:



Not too surprising, maybe Sean Spicer sees some writing on the wall. See below...


I wonder what Spicer objected so strongly about.



So do I. I wonder if Spicer is actually employing some critical thinking in this case. Remember that little "nothing burger" about Russian involvement? Well, it seems as though one of Scaramucci's replacements and highly regarded colleagues, Ray Nolte, held a key position at Deutsche Bank. Big surprise.....put the 2+2 together? And to me that = scared of being implicated and IF so, with good reason.



SkyBridge Capital was founded in 2005 with a focus on hedge fund seeding. Anthony Scaramucci was previously the co-founder of Oscar Capital Management, which was sold to Neuberger Berman in 2001. Upon Neuberger Berman's sale to Lehman Brothers in 2003, Scaramucci served as managing director in their Investment Management division. Scaramucci also served as a vice president in Goldman Sachs Private Wealth Management group.
In May 2008, SkyBridge formed a strategic partnership with Challenger Financial Services Group Limited, forming the first global institutional emerging manager seeding platform. Additionally, Challenger supports SkyBridge in the Australasia region to source new capital and managers. In April 2010, the firm announced it opened an office in Zürich, Switzerland.
In June 2010, SkyBridge acquired Citigroup Alternative Investments Hedge Fund Management Group and Ray Nolte, joined as co-managing partner and chief investment officer. Nolte was previously the chief executive officer and chief investment officer of the Citigroup Alternative Investments Hedge Fund Management Group. Earlier, he held positions at Deutsche Bank and Bankers Trust Company.


Yep, the same bank that paid out over $600 million due to their Russian money laundering.

GOOD FOR HIM

It's about time. Now he won't have to lie for him any more.

Hopefully his reputation hasn't been ruined.
I think a lot of people saw him as a victim.

He should definitely go on SNL with Melissa McCarthy.
OMG that would be a hoot.

Wikipedia also has this gem about Scaramucci:


On January 12, 2017, President Donald Trump announced his intent to appoint Scaramucci Director of the White House Office of Public Liaison and Intergovernmental Affairs.[4] Scaramucci's swearing-in was reportedly delayed by an extended review of his finances by the Office of Government Ethics,[5][6] although the ethics office denied that clearance was necessary before making White House appointments.[7] Ultimately, George Sifakis was appointed instead.


I had forgotten the kerfuffle over his finances (I've slept since then) - I wonder if Scaramucci has divested himself of those interests by now or if something else is going on. Since the White House Communications Director position doesn't need Senate approval, he may still be involved in whatever it was that made the Senate uneasy.

Yeah, it's definitely not enough money to do that job. Sure, you get access to the Presidential Box at Kennedy Center and some trips on Air Force One and some good health benefits and I'm sure there are a few other fringe benefits that I'm probably forgetting but yeah, It's not worth it and you could make considerably more doing something. Far less stressful and embarrassing in the private sector.

No, you haven't.

Spicer is still there, up through August.

lol, yes it must of been THAT BAD that it didn't require an immediate resignation and withdrawal.

Nothing to see here, the usual liberal circlejerk, move along unless you plan to get infected.

Ahhh yes. The same OGE that Walter Straub just vacated for....reasons.....Gee, I wonder why they were delaying their approval?

I doubt very highly that he has completely divested himself....he has no guidance by which to do so. Maybe he rented some "kids" to run the business for him as his divestiture.

All in all, I honestly never had bad feelings towards Sean Spicer, I ALWAYS thought he was getting a bad rap, the only thing I took exception with was in his not standing up sooner and saying F off to Donald Trump.

"It's been an honor & a privilege to serve @POTUS @realDonaldTrump & this amazing country. I will continue my service through August"

Spicer's most recent tweet

And.....what is he supposed to say, "I cant stand that scumbag anymore"? Of course this is the public face of the resignation.

This is my opinion.

Since President Trump assumed office, there have been some really questionable appointments by him. Spicer, Sessions, Haley, ad nauseum. I believe that these people were foisted upon President Trump - they were not his first choices. But, you may ask, what changed? I think that it was McCain's diagnosis of a brain tumor which emasculated the senior senator and Trump may believe McCain is quickly on his way out. That being said, the next two weeks will show us that if this was the case, Trump will fire or "resign" the ones he didn't want and install the ones that will, as Trump so succinctly said, "Make America Great Again". His tweets may taper off to more proper and substantial substance. Hopefully, this will happen, anyway.

Specifically with Sean Spicer, I wondered sometimes that the tweets that Trump wrote weren't designed to get under Spicer's skin and the appointment of Scarramucci was the straw that broke Spicer's back.

Seen this coming for a long time. He's been doing as much as he can to stay out of the limelight, I don't think he realized how much pressure comes with the job.

Poor guy can't even get a coffee.

Yea..

I don't think anyone in Washington trusted trump a whole lot to have their backs.. but Trump turning on Sessions made it blantantly obvious Trump will THROW ANYONE under the bus..


They are all tired of agreeing on X media strategy, then trump goes out there and says exactly the opposite.. usually to the detriment of his campaign ..

I think they get him for obstruction soon and then it's a whole new fiasco with pence.

Trump still might be the death of the GOP after all lol.



Trump is most definitely the death of the GOP.
