Former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci told President Donald Trump to stop tweeting about the Trump Tower meeting between his campaign staff and Russian officials.

“I think that’s good advice because if the president is right on the facts and I take him at his word and Donald Jr. Trump is right on the facts as he elicited yesterday, then let the thing unfold the way it’s going to unfold,” Scaramucci said on CNN’s “New Day” Tuesday. (RELATED: Scaramucci Tells Trump To Tone Down Russia Rhetoric)

“One of the problems is when you’re out there protesting, you don’t have to be a Shakespearean scholar but when you’re out there protesting and the words ‘thou doth protest too much,’ it sends a signal to people, why are you protesting? If you’re right on the facts, you don’t need to protest.”

“Let the investigation play itself out,” he added.


Scaramucci said no one can possibly know if anything illegal took place, unless they were directly involved with the meeting.

“I don’t know if anything illegal happened because I’m not as close to the thing as the prosecutors or the principals,” he said. “Like I said, I will take the president at his word.”

Scaramucci said the president needs to stop talking about the issue and urged him to allow the facts to play out.

“Stop talking because you’re trying to explain something that you don’t need to explain — if you’re right on the facts, you do not need to explain the situation. The facts will unfold the way they will,” he continued. “There’s still, in my belief, in our country a very fair judicial process. And so if you’re right on the facts, let the facts unfold the way they’re going to unfold.”

“My legal advice would be fair and square, stop talking about it,” Scaramucci concluded. “Because the talking about it is getting people to question the facts of the situation. And so if you’re right on the facts, the facts will unfold in a way that are unfavorable to you and you will be better served not talking about it.”
