Anthony Scaramucci says former FBI Director James Comey’s depiction of President Trump as a mafia boss is a book selling technique.
“He’s obviously not like a mafia don, but Comey’s entitled to his opinion. I’ve never met him. I don’t know his personality at all so it’s hard for me to read it, but to call the president a mafia don, there’s a bit of bitterness going on there,” Scaramucci told WOR’s “Len Berman and Michael Riedel in the Morning.
Scarmucci said Comey’s editors know those are the kinds of statements that will get the media’s attention and lead to promotion for the book.
In his book, “A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies and Leadership,” Comey calls President Trump unethical and untethered to the truth.
“I don’t think the president lies about the big stuff, but I do think that he stretches stories and I think a lot of people stretch stories,” Scaramucci said.
