Scaramucci ignites fierce White House fight: 'Shiv in ribs'?

Donald trump

Scaramucci tweeted about leaks late Wednesday and mentioned the Twitter handle of White House chief of staff Reince Priebus.

The interview naturally sent the internet into a DEFCON 1 meltdown, as Twitter eagerly awaited The Mooch's response.

"Who leaked that to you?" he demanded, referencing a tweet the journalist had posted earlier in the evening mentioning a "senior White House official" and a dinner Scaramucci was in attendance at alongside President Donald Trump, Fox News Anchor Sean Hannity, and former Fox News executive Bill Shine.

But on CNN Thursday morning, the former financial NY reiterated that he would do everything to stop "leaks harmful and ill-advised, the stab in the back in the manner of the intrigues of the palace". Conveniently for Lizza, Scaramucci did not ask to be off the record.

Scaramucci was initially set off by a report in Politico that indicates he has assets worth as much as $85 million and that he took a $5 million salary from SkyBridge Capital, the hedge fund he founded, in the first half of the year.

Thursday afternoon, The New Yorker's Ryan Lizza dropped a bombshell interview he had the night before with Anthony Scaramucci, the newly anointed White House communications director. "I'm not trying to suck my own c-;" and "What I want to do is I want to f-ing kill all the leakers". "Yeah, let me go, though, because I've gotta start tweeting some shit to make this guy insane", Scaramucci said, charmingly.

President Trump replaces Chief of Staff Priebus with General John F. Kelly
Priebus, who previously led the Republican National Committee, represented the establishment GOP faction of the Trump White House. President Donald Trump has tweeted he is naming Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly as his chief of staff.

He was arrested at his home in Mira Mesa and some journalists are reporting his bail is $2.5million. In June, the former tennis star posted a father's day tribute to Nikolaos on Instagram.

Gingrich added the brash New Yorker "is full of himself".

The issue of leaks has weighed heavily on President Donald Trump as his administration tries to navigate questions about contacts some Trump campaign associates may have had with Russian government officials. In it, an angry Scaramucci uses expletives to accuse White House chief of staff Reince Priebus of being a "paranoid schizophrenic".

"What I don't like about Washington is people do not let you know how they feel".

Scaramucci said he asked for a "honeymoon period" without leaks, but the team would not comply. He said he had no interest in seeking media attention for himself, taking aim at another senior staffer, the president's political strategist Steve Bannon. To the extent Scaramucci is now running the show in the West Wing - and Priebus's stock certainly seems to be declining - we can apparently expect plenty more of this. I'll get to the person who leaked that to you.

"Now if you want to talk about the chief of staff, we have had odds, we have had differences". "As you know from the Italian expression, the fish stinks from the head down, I can tell you two fish that don't stink, that's me and the president". He compared their relationship to that of brothers who are "rough on each other", invoking Cain and Abel.

It's worth noting that there was in fact no leak behind Politico's publishing of Mr Scaramucci's financial disclosure form. Other brothers can fight with each other and get along.
