White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci repeated that he and White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus were like brothers, but warned that it was still unclear whether or not they would get along in the White House.
“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,” Scaramucci said on CNN’s New Day on Thursday morning.
Scaramucci explained comments he made on Twitter on Wednesday night, after citing Priebus in a tweet about leakers. After Politico reported on Scaramucci’s public disclosure form, he suggested that it was leaked to the media by someone in the White House.
He later deleted the tweet.
Scaramucci said that he included Priebus in the note he posted on Twitter because he was in charge of White House staff. Scaramucci’s accusations surrounded a public document, but he he made it clear that he suspected that someone in the White House notified Politico immediately.
“What the president and I would like to tell everybody, we have a very, very good idea of who the leakers are, who the senior leakers are in the White House,” Scaramucci said.
He also assured CNN that journalists who covered the White House were used to getting leaks from Priebus, which is why they suspected that he was referring to him in the tweet.
“Underconfidence plus insecurity always equals paranoia and backstabbing,” he said, vowing to find out the source.
Scaramucci refrained from naming Reince Priebus specifically, but did not defend the chief of staff.
“If Reince wants to explain that he’s not a leaker, let him do that,” he said. “But let me tell you something about myself, I am a straight shooter. I’ll go right to the heart of the matter.”
He also expressed frustration that his dinner with Fox News host Sean Hannity and former Fox News executive Bill Shine, leaked to the media minutes after it began.
“It’s absolutely completely and totally reprehensible,” he said. “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.”
IF I MAY: DO YOU REALLY THINK JEFF SESSIONS AND PRESIDENT TRUMP ARE NOT STRATEGIZING ON THE PHONE EACH DAY?
President Trump will fire a “screw-up” in a minute-especially one that is disloyal! Jeff Sessions is not either one! So, while the real “screw-ups” and ignorant people are dwelling on the distracting Tweets, Jeff Sessions is putting into action all of the programs President Trump wants fixed now!
Yes, we would love to see the “swamp rats” at the DOJ dumped quicker, but AG Sessions is getting the goods on them first, so they can’t come back and haunt the administration as it appears Comey did! (Or did he?) Draining a swamp is a big, complicated job! You can’t just stick in a siphon hose, give a little suck and let the fluid flow! After all, the swamp is populated by big, big rats, alligators and a host of other dangerous critters that would love to kill those upsetting their little piece of heavenly turf! At least heavenly to them, although a tremendous burden on the tax payer!
I hope I’m not blowing the cover of AG Sessions and President Trump, but I think it is finally becoming clear to any open-minded observer what is going on!
Jeff Sessions is taking over an agency staffed by hundreds of embedded Obama/Clinton operatives who will subvert our nation to stop the Trump administration. Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said, “On every public policy issue conservatives care about, the Justice Department has been on the other side and usually against the rule of law … so Attorney General Sessions really has to reorient the Justice Department to actually advance the interest of the American people…”
Jeff Sessions is doing his duty against criminal gangs, terrorists, drug cartels, illegal immigrants and the usual litigation’s of the government. His effectiveness against gangs like MS-13 and upholding the immigration laws and supporting the presidents Constitutional right to put a temporary hold on refugees is outstanding!
If President Trump was that angry about Sessions’ recusal he would have fired him weeks ago! Stay awake and watch the GREATEST SHOW ON EARTH, where President Trump has the democrats, their propaganda press and all the anti-Trump swamp looking like fools!
