Anthony Scaramucci Vs. Reince Priebus: White House Drama Escalates

166719 full

"But let me tell you about myself", Scaramucci said. They're trying to resist me, but it's not going to work.

"I'm more of a front-stabbing person".

This is how Lorraine Woellert, the Politico reporter who broke the story, got it. "Reince Priebus-if you want to leak something-he'll be asked to resign very shortly". "Reince is a f-- paranoid schizophrenic, a paranoiac".

The scathing remarks by Scaramucci came as he and other Trump loyalists ratcheted up pressure on Priebus, a former Republican National Committee chairman, who does not have years-long ties with Trump.

Lizza wrote that Scaramucci believed Priebus had been anxious about the dinner because he hadn't been invited. "I'm not trying to build my own brand off the fucking strength of the President".

King, who represents the district in which Scaramucci lives, said his New Yorker comments "sounded like a lot of guys I have spoken to late at night after political meetings".

Asked what he meant by including Priebus, Scaramucci said, "If Reince wants to explain he's not the leaker, he can do that". Is the White House conflict real or a show? His stake in the firm could lead to potential conflicts of interest.

Scaramucci's initial, since-deleted tweet that referenced Priebus appeared on Twitter "minutes later", Lizza wrote. At the time of his interview with the New Yorker Scaramucci was apparently unaware that his financial disclosure information was publicly available, so instead he believed it was a direct retaliation effort by Priebus.

After Scaramucci's Wednesday night conversation with Lizza he took to Twitter with accusations that he was the victim of an illegal leak of his financial information.

Scaramucci acknowledged the weakness of his original legal claim to Chris Cuomo on CNN, but he stayed on message with regards to leaks.

"There is a widespread feeling among Trump supporters that he's never been a real supporter of Donald Trump and that he isn't playing to win on the president's behalf", said an outside Trump adviser.

Father of tennis champ Mark Philippoussis denies molesting girls
The 68-year-old was arrested on suspicion of sexually abusing two nine-year-old girls that he had been privately coaching. Philippoussis Snr's lawyer Ryan Tegnelia, however, said his client was innocent and would fight the charges.

"We are working ... to undercut and undercover the leakers in the entire country".

"I'm not Steve Bannon", he continued.

Mr Trump hired Mr Scaramucci last Friday, prompting press secretary Sean Spicer to quit in protest.

Tension among senior White House staff has burst into the open after newly-installed White House communications chief Anthony Scaramucci was angered by an apparent leak of who he had dinner with and let fly a profanity-laced rant at his colleagues.

The president's new communications director is doubling down on his complaints of leaks within the White House.

"He's the chief of staff", he said.

"I fired one guy the other day", Scaramucci said.

He said: "Some brothers are like Cain and Abel". "Other brothers can fight with each other and get along". I don't know if this is repairable or not.

He then went after Lizza, saying reporters like him know who the leakers are but won't reveal their names. "'I am a straight shooter'".

Gingrich said Scaramucci needed to learn that he couldn't just speak his mind and his job was to organize the President's communications.
