First, he made Scaramucci press secretary. Scaramucci has Las Vegas connections and is a very good friend to Wall Street in any capacity in the White House.

Las Vegas - Anthony Scaramucci (click here) was soaking up plenty of love this week at his high-profile hedge fund conference even as his political ambitions remained in limbo.
The outspoken Wall Street figure in January agreed to sell his SkyBridge Capital LLC on the expectation of a public liaison job with U.S. President Donald Trump, whom he aggressively supported as a fundraiser and media commentator. But that role has not materialized.
The uncertainty over a White House position allowed Scaramucci to return to Las Vegas for SkyBridge’s ninth annual SALT event, which he founded after the 2008 financial crisis to boost his ailing business by promoting its brand and the broader industry.
“I was disappointed I didn’t get the (Trump) job, but living well is the best revenge,” Scaramucci told Reuters on the sidelines of the event at the Bellagio hotel....
Additionally, he has donated a great deal of money to Trump's presidential run.
New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman has been investigating President Trump for years (then someone has the tax returns, right?) —and the newest White House communications director helped fund his campaigns.

President Donald Trump (click here) says he doesn’t want his finances investigated, but he just appointed a top White House staffer who has given tens of thousands of dollars to an official doing just that.
Trump appointed Anthony Scaramucci as the White House’s new communications director on Friday, capping a tumultuous six months among the president’s press team. In the first on-camera press briefing in nearly a month on Friday afternoon, the New York financier and media personality extolled the success of the president’s agenda, and said his job would be to communicate how great Trump is doing....
So Trump is placing a loyalist in charge of the White House Press and Scaramucci may have an agenda of his own as well. I find it interesting he wanted this job at the time he was donating large amounts of money to Trump for his campaign.
But, that isn't all, is it?

...The president's defense (click here) of his pardoning authority came days after The Post reported that he and his legal team have discussed his power to pardon those close to him, including himself....
Trump's public decree about his pardoning powers is to let everyone, even Michael Flynn, he has his "Pardoning Pen" at the ready. What does that public decree mean? It is to intimidate any investigation by Mueller or otherwise. In other words, "DO NOT COOPERATE, if there are charges filed I will let you off."
