Murkowski Gets Scolded By Ex-Trump Official For Complaining About Trump And Doing Nothing About
Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) complained to reporters this week about Donald Trump pushing the DOJ to lower its sentencing recommendations for Roger Stone. That prompted former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci to fire back at Murkowski for allowing Trump to continue to be corrupt.
Murkowski had the chance to convict Trump last week at his impeachment trial but ultimately chose to acquit him.
“The President weighs in, all of a sudden, Justice comes back and says change the deal,” Murkowski said this week. “I think most people in America would look at that and say hmm, that just doesn’t look right.”
Scaramucci decided to fire back at Murkowski:
“Then do something about it,” he wrote on Twitter. “Your refusal to call witnesses only emboldened him to increase his corruption. Our government is now functioning like a third-world country.”
