Former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci urged acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney to step down and "go to confession" after a tumultuous week for the Trump administration.
During an appearance on CNN's "New Day," Scaramucci was asked by anchor John Berman what advice he would give to Mulvaney after the chief of staff appeared to admit to the existence of a quid pro quo between President Trump and Ukraine's president over the issues of military aid and an investigation into former Vice President Joe Biden.
"If I were giving Mick Mulvaney advice, [if I were him] I would resign, I would get myself a really good lawyer, because you're going to have to explain a lot of things," Scaramucci said.
"What I would say to Mick, is, you're a good Catholic — resign, go to confession, OK, then let's rebuild your career from here," he added.
Scaramucci has gone from a public supporter of President Trump to one of the staunchest critics of his administration. The reason remains unclear but it seems Scaramucci is enjoying his time in the spotlight.
