Former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci praised House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., noting her smarts in resisting pressure to impeach the president after the release of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's report.
"I think the smartest person is actually Speaker Pelosi," he told "Fox and Friends" on Friday.
Scaramucci said that while he understood Democrats tried to use the impeachment issue to raise money off of their base's anger, it would be a bad strategy going into the 2020 elections.
Pelosi, however, has repeatedly quashed the idea and said Trump wasn't "worth" the effort required for an impeachment battle.
She sets the agenda for House Democrats," he told Fox News on Friday.
