Scaramucci Compares Trump Plans To Nazi Police

Former aide to former President Donald Trump Anthony Scaramucci argued that Trump would set up a system similar to Nazi police if he won a second term. The comments came after former Trump attorney Michael Cohen said this week that Trump would make enemies disappear or send them to prison.

Scaramucci, who served as the Trump administration’s communications director, praised President Joe Biden in a recent CNN interview. He said that the president’s messaging is “fantastic.”

He also said that the president’s legislative agenda was “worked.” He argued that Biden has “done more for working-class people than Donald Trump did 2017 to 2021 but you’ve got an issue there.”

The former Trump administration official said that Trump’s recent interview with Dr. Phil was a “therapy session.” He also accused the former president of saying “two things at once and then his adversaries will pick up on one thing.”

Scaramucci said that when Trump stated he doesn’t want “revenge,” he’s also letting people know “‘Hey, I can’t wait to get this job because I’m going to seek retribution through the justice system.’”

“He’s also told friends of mine that have defended him in court, defense attorneys, that he wants to use the FBI as the Gestapo. He probably doesn’t know what that means, but he has said that,” he added.

“We have to hold them accountable for those things. If we do all of that, President Biden will win reelection,” Scaramucci added.

“Unfortunately in our society now, these elections are popularity contests and not hiring decisions. And so they have to come up with a strategy to expand the net of the Biden Independents,” he said.

Cohen said during a recent media interview that Trump would not share power with anyone, including Republican leaders who support him.

“It does not work that way. He will not allow that and just like Putin, once you start to get too big for your own britches, people will start flying out of windows, they will end up in gulags. As Donald says all the time, send them to Gitmo, send them to Guantanamo Bay,” he said.

Cohen’s comments appeared to be a comparison to Russia under current President Vladimir Putin. The Russian leader has been accused of having rivals killed and sending others to prison with spurious charges.

He was a key witness in the New York prosecution of the former president, which returned a guilty verdict.
