Scaramucci: Trump Will Use FBI Like Gestapo in 2nd Term

( – Former Trump administration communications director Anthony Scaramucci compared former President Trump’s plans for dealing with the FBI to the strategies used by Nazi Germany’s “Gestapo” during an appearance on CNN’s “The Lead.”

A one-time member of Trump’s inner circle but feels scorned by his former boss, Scaramucci is on his own personal campaign trail to try and sink Trump’s presidential aspirations. Doing an about-face, he is now an ardent Biden supporter, stating that Biden’s “messaging” is great. He claims that Biden has done more for the working class than Trump did between 2017 and 2021.

Scaramucci says that elections have become more about popularity than qualifications, so the Biden team needs to devise a strategy to increase his reach among Independents.

The former communications director gave Trump a back-handed compliment, stating that the former president has a deft use of wordplay. Scaramucci explains that Trump frequently uses language that has two possible readings, giving his opponents an opening to exploit one of them. Meanwhile, his proponents will gather around statements, hearing an entirely different meaning.

As an example, Scaramucci says Trump is simultaneously saying he does not want revenge but sending a dog whistle to his voter base that that is precisely what he will be doing—seeking justice through the use of a weaponized justice system.

Scaramucci claims Trump has told friends of his in court that he plans on using the FBI as his personal “Gestapo.”

From 1989 until 1996, Scaramucci worked at Goldman Sachs, where he learned about investment banking, stocks, and private wealth management. He soon left Goldman Sachs and founded Oscar Capital Management. Later that year, in 2005, he established the investing company SkyBridge Capital.


On July 21, 2017, Scaramucci became the director of communications for the Trump White House. Shortly after taking over, Scaramucci caused a stir by publicly criticizing specific Trump administration officials in an interview he mistook for confidential with Ryan Lizza of The New Yorker.

The president chose to fire him just ten days after his appointment, on the recommendation of John F. Kelly, the newly appointed chief of staff of the White House.

He has spoken out against Trump in the media and has openly supported Joe Biden for president in 2020 and 2024.
