‘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.

President Donald Trump's decision to withdraw in Syria in less than 24 hours put American troops at risk as they were being fired on by Turkey. However, according to the Wall Street Journal , the military was also forced to bomb our own military base.

Republican Rep. Adam Kinzinger, who has been critical of Trump's decisions in the past months, pointed out the factoid in a tweet Wednesday evening, asking, "Is this the America you grew up believing in?"

"On Wednesday, the U.S. military said two F-15E jet fighters carried out an airstrike to destroy an ammunition-storage facility, latrines, tents and other parts of the Syria headquarters of the American campaign to destroy Islamic State after pulling its forces from the base," reported The Journal.

The filing, part of the House Judiciary Committee's attempt to seek testimony from ex-White House Counsel Don McGahn, cites the White House's repeated efforts to block current and former Trump administration officials from testifying — and even some allies of Trump who have never held any position in his government.
