Scaramucci's Batting 1000- Second Day Of Work He Made A Liar Out Of Jay Sekulow On Fox News

Anthony Scaramucci has been on the job a little over a day and already the Sunday shows are manifesting a level of double speak and chaos to rival the days of the Tower of Babel. Presidential pardons was the talking point this morning and while Scaramucci was on Fox News Sunday telling Chris Wallace that he had been discussing the issue with Trump just last week, lawyer Jay Sekulow was on ABC telling George Stephanopolous emphatically that there were in fact no conversations regarding presidential pardons taking place at all, nor is the topic even being researched.  
Wallace: “Why even talk about pardons?”
Scaramucci: “This is one of those things about Washington, the convolution and the nature of things. I’m in the Oval Office with the president last week and we were talking about that, he says he brought that up, but he doesn’t have to be pardoned, there’s nobody around him that has to be pardoned. He was just making the statement about the power of the pardon. Now, all of the speculation and all of the spin is he’s going to pardon himself. The president does not need to pardon himself. And the reason he doesn’t need to pardon himself is he hasn’t done anything wrong.”
