Anthony Scaramucci claims to be in-the-know when it comes to how things will play out with the Supreme Court.
The former White House communications director said he’s in the know about the fate of Roe vs. Wade in the wake of the impending appointment of a new U.S. Supreme Court Justice. And he’s pretty sure who President Trump will be picking for the job, too.
TMZ caught up with Scaramucci, also known as ‘The Mooch,’ in West Hollywood on Wednesday where he was asked for his thoughts on the news that Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy had announced his retirement after more than three decades on the high court.
He revealed that he believes Kennedy’s successor could be Thomas Hardiman, a conservative Pennsylvania judge who serves on the Third U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals – where Trump’s sister, Maryanne Trump Barry, sat.
“He’s young enough, he’s an unbelievably brilliant jurist,” Scaramucci said of the 52-year-old whose name is on Trump’s short list of picks. “Everybody likes him.”
Scaramucci also had a word for supporters of Roe vs. Wade who are afraid the president’s choice for a Supreme Court Justice will tilt the high court and set the stage for overturning the landmark abortion case.
“That’s not going to happen, It will not happen,” he said, citing a similar fear when former President Reagan was tasked with appointing Justices.
TMZ asked Scaramucci how and why he was so confident in his answer.
“Because I know stuff that I can’t tell you while the camera’s light is on,” he said. “But it’s not going to happen.”
If Scaramucci were a betting man, he might want to take a look at a top 10 list of betting odds for Trump’s likely pick. Hardiman ranked number 8 on the list compiled by Sportsbet.com.au, a gambling site based out of Australia.

His pick might not be at the top, but at least it made the list.
