Anthony Scaramucci vs. Reince Priebus: White House drama escalates

Posted July 27, 2017

Anthony Scaramucci triggered a controversy late Wednesday when he appeared to suggest in a tweet that White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus was responsible for a leak about him. But other aides have said Mr. Priebus urged Mr. Trump not to bring Mr. Scaramucci to the White House, and was overruled.

"Enter the filer last name and pick the agency and then fill out form 301 and you too can get a look at the financial disclosure of either Anthony Scaramucci or Reince Priebus and download it if you like".

He said that he and the president along with members of his team and law enforcement were working together to "undercut and undercover, or out, if you will, the leakers in the entire country".

"The "leak" Scaramucci is referring to is likely a reference to a Politico report Wednesday evening, which details Scaramucci's financial disclosure filed with the Office of Government Ethics".

The brash new communications chief ominously added that he and President Trump "have a very, very good idea of who the leakers are, who the senior leakers are in the White House". "Let me tell you something about myself - I am a straight shooter, and I'll go right to the heart of the matter".

Scaramucci's perceived social-media snipe at Priebus loosely resembled the types of attacks Trump has leveled against his own attorney general, Jeff Sessions, over the past week.

The financial disclosure forms, however, are publicly available, notes the Politico report, which links to them.

"I don't know if the relationship with Reince is reparable...that's up to the President", Scaramucci said. After reports on that tweet were published - many of which interpreted Scaramucci as fingering Priebus as the leaker - the communications director, shortly before 1:00 a.m., posted a new tweet.

"What I'm upset about is the process - and the junk pool, the dirty pool - in terms of the way this stuff is being done", Scaramucci said.

"If Reince wants to explain that he's not a leaker, let him do that", Scaramucci told CNN's Chris Cuomo, during a call-in Thursday morning to "New Day".

There has been speculation that Scaramucci is gunning to take over Priebus' position as chief of staff, and that the former Wall Street honcho views Priebus as too much of a Washington insider.

Speaking on CNN Thursday morning, Scaramucci was more explicit about his tweet.

"I think the most important part of Anthony's tweet was when he talked about the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the DOJ". In Scaramucci's first official appearance in front of the White House press corps last week, he said he and Priebus "are a little bit like brothers, where we rough each other up once in a while, which is totally normal for brothers".
