Remove the 2 wires from the breaker, wire nut them together with a single pigtail. Run the new pigtail to the breaker. You do not need to dedicate a breaker to a doorbell xformer.

Some breakers are made to be doubletapped, orwise just as the handy husband stated and you will be good to go.

Most SqD and CH breakers are listed for doubletapped with two conductors at the termail screw however Double check the label to make sure { they are only allowed on 30 amp or smaller breaker size } I doubt that other are listed like that.

Otherwise just make a pigtail and wirenutted it and that will useally take care the issue there.

Merci,Marc
