CNN, Facebook

Beleaguered early NYC Trump supporter Anthony Scaramucci cannot catch a break.

First he sold his position in Skybridge Capital, hoping for a Trump appointment that never came.

Now he has been accused of being a Russian Spy.

“Senate investigators are examining the activities of a little-known $10-billion Russian investment fund whose chief executive met with a member of President Donald Trump’s transition team four days before Trump’s inauguration, a congressional source told CNN.

The source said the Senate intelligence committee is investigating the Russian fund in connection with its examination of discussions between White House adviser Jared Kushner and the head of a prominent Russian bank. The bank, Vnesheconombank, or VEB, oversees the fund, which has ties to several Trump advisers. Both the bank and the fund have been covered since 2014 by sanctions restricting U.S. business dealings.
Separately, the Treasury Department has been looking into the Jan. 16 meeting between the fund’s chief executive and Anthony Scaramucci, a member of the transition team’s executive committee and a fundraiser and adviser for Trump’s presidential campaign, according to a Jan. 30 letter from Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin.”

More details in ‘Muh Russian Narrative’?

Except there is apparently no basis in fact.

The article was removed from CNN and a retraction issued.

How exactly could such a detailed fabrication be pushed by CNN?

Because CNN is Very #FAKENEWS, pushing this Russian narrative, when even the New York Times has admitted there is no basis in fact.

Bigleaguepolitics.com is waiting on a response from Anthony Scaramucci.
