President Trump is “not worried” by the probe into Russian interference with the election, former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci said Sunday.
Scaramucci, who said he spoke to the President last Monday, said Trump is frustrated by the fallout from special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russia’s meddling and possible involvement by his campaign, but not fretting about the outcome.
“I know that he’s not worried about it,” he said on CNN’s “State of the Union,” adding Trump “expects the investigation of Mueller to treat him fairly.”
The probe has already yielded indictments and guilty pleas by people connected to the Trump campaign, but Trump maintains he and his advisers had no improper contact with Russian officials.

“When you really uncover the data and the information, you’ll find that the President was nowhere near the Russians as it related to the campaign, the election or anything thereof,” said Scaramucci, who was fired from the White House after only 11 days on the job but remains a Trump ally.
“So I’m not worried about it. I don’t think he’s worried about it,” he said. “I think he’s frustrated about it. I think he doesn’t like the ‘scandals incorporated’ that goes on in Washington where we find the scandal du jour to try to distract our political opponents from their agendas by picking on them personally.”
