Scaramucci, obviously, is pro Wall Street. "I'm an unapologetic defender of Wall Street," Scaramucci told TheStreet in an interview (above video) last October. Along those lines, he is also bullish about one of Wall Street's most lightening-rod figures: his friend and fellow hedgie Steve Cohen.

Cohen is the former owner of hedge fund SAC Capital, which shut down after pleading guilty in the biggest insider-trading scandal in history. As part of Cohen's settlement with the SEC, he was barred from managing outside investors' money until 2018.
