‘Kill all the f*cking leakers’: Scaramucci comes unglued after less than a week on the job

Published

on

Freshly hired White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci exploded at a writer for The New Yorker, the Hill.com said, calling Reince Priebus a “paranoid schizophrenic” and saying that he personally wants to “kill all the leakers” in the administration.

On Wednesday, Scaramucci called Ryan Lizza of The New Yorker demanding to know who leaked to Lizza that the newly appointed comms director was having dinner with President Donald Trump and the first lady that night.

Spewing expletives, Scaramucci said he would fire every single official in the White House unless Lizza told him who leaked the information about the dinner.

“What I want to do is I want to f*cking kill all the leakers and I want to get the President’s agenda on track so we can succeed for the American people,” the former hedge funder said.

“What I’m going to do is, I will eliminate everyone in the comms team and we’ll start over,” Scaramucci ranted.

He went on to call former RNC chairman and White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus a “paranoid schizophrenic” and said that Priebus will be fired soon.

New York magazine’s Washington correspondent Olivia Nuzzi tweeted that administration officials were tight-lipped about Scaramucci’s outburst, refusing to answer questions in the wake of the publication of Lizza’s article.

Published

on

President Donald Trump said Friday that he was fine with a "longer" impeachment trial in the U.S. Senate because he wanted to call his own witnesses to appear, despite Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's resistance.

Yet, when he returned to Twitter Friday night, Trump lamented that it wasn't fair he was being impeached.

"It’s not fair that I’m being Impeached when I’ve done absolutely nothing wrong! The Radical Left, Do Nothing Democrats have become the Party of Hate. They are so bad for our Country!" he tweeted.

‘Moscow Mitch’ blunder means Donald Trump can never be vindicated: Harvard Law’s Laurence Tribe

Published

on

Constitutional law expert Laurence Tribe blasted Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) for violating a legal principle that has existed for over 1,000 -- and his move means that President Donald Trump can never be vindicated during impeachment.

Tribe, who has taught at Harvard Law School for 50 years and argued 36 cases before the United States Supreme Court, has been advising Speaker Nancy Pelosi and House Democrats during the impeachment inquiry. He was interviewed on Friday by MSNBC chief legal correspondent Ari Melber.

Tribe said, "what it looks like is that the majority leader is going to conduct this trial as though he's a member of the defense team," Tribe said. "You know, it's an ancient principle, centuries-old -- actually over a millennium old -- that you can't be a judge on your own case and effectively, to allow Donald Trump to call the shots, violates that principle."

Published

on

A Washington Post editorial is singing the praises of the Judiciary Committee's memo about the impeachment charges President Donald Trump is facing. The memo, titled “Constitutional Grounds for Presidential Impeachment” details the fundamental principles of the Constitution the founders outlined to guarantee the country wouldn't fall at the hands of corruption.

"The memo is remarkably originalist. Regardless of what happens with the impeachment, we are getting a much-needed civics lesson," The Post explained.
