Scaramucci Vs. Priebus: Trump's West Wing War Goes Public

Scaramucci Vs. Priebus: Trump's West Wing War Goes Public”

After Scaramucci took down the tweet, he clarified his position with another.

The tweet came after Politico reported that the SkyBridge Capital founder had a net worth of as much as $85 million, citing a financial disclosure dated June 23 that he filed with the U.S. Office of Government Ethics.

The contretemps is yet more evidence of the increasingly public dispute playing out in the West Wing between Scaramucci and Priebus, who reportedly objected to Trump's hiring of the financier.

RON Transatlantic and HNA Group, a Chinese conglomerate, are in the process of buying the firm, and the sale is being closely watched by federal regulators.

Scaramucci also said there are "senior leakers" in the White House.

Six days after being named White House Communications Director, Scaramucci says he's getting closer to rooting out those leaking confidential information.

Scaramucci responded angrily. "In light of the leak of my financial disclosure info which is a felony", he wrote on Twitter, "I will be contacting @FBI and the @TheJusticeDept".

Asked what he meant by including Priebus, Scaramucci said, "If Reince wants to explain he's not the leaker, he can do that". The comment came in a since-deleted tweet that mentioned the Twitter handle of White House chief of staff Reince Priebus.

Trump critics used the occasion to bash the White House communications director for a weird accusation and an odd attempt to cover it up.

"I'm his friend first". In an interview on Fox News earlier in the day, Scaramucci complained about leaks and Washington's backstabbing culture.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders says she has nothing to add to Scaramucci's tweet. He took a job last month as chief strategy officer at the Export-Import Bank of the United States, a post that was widely viewed as temporary.

"Some brothers are like Cain and Abel", he said.

Some speculated that he deleted the original accusation because he could have discovered that the disclosure was publicly available the whole time, and not a leak at all. We are a little bit like brothers where we rough each other up once in a while.

"I don't know if this is repairable or not - that will be up to the president", Scaramucci said of his differences with Priebus.

Leaks have been a focus for President Trump since the start of his administration.

Scaramucci's financial disclosure wasn't leaked at all. "I am saying senior officials are working on this together".

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

Scaramucci acknowledged to CNN that he and Priebus "have had odds". Scaramucci declared. "I don't like the activity going on in the White House".
