Donald Trump Will Soon Be Told to 'Take One for the Team' and Leave Office, Says Anthony Scaramucci

Former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci has suggested President Donald Trump will soon be told to "take one for the team" and leave office, if he isn't impeached before then.

Speaking to Vanity Fair, the political consultant—whose time in White House communications totaled six days—suggested that "more damning" information on Trump would emerge and force Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to take action.

"In the next three to six weeks, there will be more damning information related to the president" that will come out, Scaramucci said at Vanity Fair's 6th Annual New Establishment Summit at California's Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts.

"He's aware of it. I believe that McConnell will eventually go to him and say, 'Hey, man. You've gotta take one for the team… you've gotta go back.' He'll probably end up back at Mar-a-Lago or something."

Scaramucci suggested that it would require "more lawless activity exposure" for such a conversation to take place between McConnell and Trump.

"He's going to get impeached, I predict he will be out of office before the next election" Scaramucci stated. "He's literally turned our foreign policy and elements of our domestic policy and our national security system into a world of personal transactions. I do believe he's cornered now and as the facts unfold, they're so overwhelming in their criminality that he'll be out of office."

The former communications director has been an outspoken critic of Trump since leaving the White House, with the president responding in kind—describing Scaramucci as a "highly unstable nutjob" who had "made a fool of himself... abused staff, got fired," USA Today reported at the time.

Following news of the impeachment inquiry announced in September by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Scaramucci suggested that the president was "a felon and a traitor" over his conversation with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy, in which Trump brought up potential political rival Joe Biden and his son Hunter—a conversation that has since become a focus of the inquiry.

"You trying to get dirt on @JoeBiden from the leader of Ukraine on the phone is not like playing a game of 'Telephone' in middle school. You are a felon and a traitor to the United States," Scaramucci tweeted in the wake of Pelosi's announcement, also sharing a meme that implied the president would not be in his role for much longer.
