During an interview on CNN'sState of the Union on Sunday, Scaramucci first told host Jake Tapper that he'd recently spoken to someone who assured him that if Russia had been behind the hacks of the Democratic National Committee and John Podesta last year―as multiple USA intelligence agencies have concluded―then nobody would have ever known about it, because the Russians are so good at it.
Host Jake Tapper began to ask a question about what "this anonymous person" had claimed.

"The President is thinking about pardoning nobody", Scaramucci said.
'I'm going to make it very, very clear, OK?' Scaramucci said.
He declined to say whether the president will sign the bill Congress is considering that would place new sanctions on Russian Federation.

"The administration is supportive of being tough on Russian Federation, particularly in putting these sanctions in place", Sarah Huckabee Sanders, who was promoted to press secretary on Friday, said on ABC's This Week.
