Scaramucci challenges Priebus over leaks to the press

Scaramucci challenges Priebus over leaks to the press

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.

Scaramucci, whose relationship with Priebus has been fraught since he was initially unable to secure a White House job after President Donald Trump's election, did little to show his relationship with Priebus was changing and said it was up to the chief of staff to show he was not leaking.

Close Priebus ally Sean Spicer, who was pulling double duty as communications director and press secretary, quit when Scaramucci was named to the job.

"Some brothers are like Cain and Able, other brothers can fight with each other and get along", Scaramucci said.

"The fact is that we just have to cut down on people thinking it's cute and makes them popular, and it somehow enhances their resume and their portfolio for later on, to curry favor with folks who are more interested in covering the style and not the substance here", she said.

"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".

Scaramucci went on CNN Thursday morning to discuss the situation, and to announce his war on leaks. But I can tell you two fish that don't stink, okay?

Scaramucci is not the only White House official to tie Priebus to the leaks. "Anthony Scaramucci's financial disclosure is a public document that has been available for several weeks", and he added that Reince Priebus's have also been handy. I said that. I know the press wants to ridicule me for saying it six times from the podium. "Because that's what it looks like in that particular tweet Scaramucci sent out yesterday". "I don't if this is repairable or not, that will be up to the president". 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.

Mr. Priebus has insisted publicly that he and Mr. Scaramucci are friends.

"If Reince wants to explain he's not a leaker, let him do that", Scaramucci said in a furious interview on CNN's "New Day." "I will be contacting Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Justice Department", Scaramucci wrote Wednesday night with the hashtag "swamp".

White House Counselor Kellyanne Conway said Thursday that Scaramucci's tweet made it clear that "somebody" didn't want him working in the White House.
