    Twitter Seems To Think Scaramucci Accused Reince Priebus of Leaking Financial Disclosure

    Politico broke a story this evening that indicated new White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci still stands to earn millions from his ownership stake in an investment firm. The report centered on financial disclosures he gave to the Office of Government Ethics.

    After the article went up, Scaramucci sent out a tweet stating that he would go to the feds to complain about the leak. He also curiously tagged White House Chief of Staff in the tweet.

    UPDATE 11:40 PM ET: And The New Yorker’s Ryan Lizza reported that Scaramucci is indeed accusing Priebus of leaking the disclosures and wants the FBI to investigate:

    I'm sure whether he is the leaker or not, the mooch will accuse him of it anyway because the mooch wants to be chief of staff. It was clear that on day one he was gunning for the job. Trump probably wants that too. The question is, who will become the comm director then though?

    Scaramucci thinks leaking his financial disclosure is a felony?

    And it was being kept secret because................?

    You know, "Mooch" strikes me as an awfully ambitious person. If I were Trump, I wouldn't go into any one-on-one meetings with him without having him searched for daggers.

    Btw -just because he leaked info about the Mooch doesn't mean HE is the deep state leaker. He might just not like Anthony and leaked this bit. But regardless...

    UPDATE 1:25 AM ET 7/27/2017: After it was reported that Scaramucci asked the FBI to investigate Priebus for leaking, Scaramucci deleted the tweet. He added another one stating that all senior officials are helping to end the leaks. Meanwhile, the New York Times reported that Scaramucci’s financial disclosures have been publicly available since July 23rd.

    "So if @Reince45 wants to explain that he's not a leaker, let him do that." @Scaramucci on @NewDay. Whoa.

    Mooch on his relationship with Priebus: "I don't know if this is repairable or not, that will be up to the president." Whoa.

    Preibus has to be gone at this point. If he lasts the day ... I'll be surprised.

    Sessions
    Comey

    Who will be gone first.

    I think that is why Mooch was brought on. Kick out Pubis and take over.
