MSNBC’s breaking scoop: Look who’s challenging Donald Trump for president as an Independent

MSNBC “Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough took to both the air and social media Monday to announce that a monkey wrench may about to be thrown into the Donald Trump campaign machinery.

“It does appear that there is going to be a well-funded independent candidate,” Scarborough said on “Morning Joe,” citing “multiple sources.”

Scarborough later revealed that the candidate is Evan McMullin, who serves as chief policy director for Republicans in the U.S. House of Representatives and a former CIA agent. He’s expected to make the announcement sometime Monday

Before actually announcing the name on the air, Scarborough sent out a series of tweets:

Scarborough said on the air that while the candidate knows that he has no chance of winning the presidency, he added “this has more to do with stopping Donald Trump than actually electing a president.”

Scarborough also tweeted that the candidate had never held elective officer before he finally revealed his identity on social media and the air.
