HE GOT THEM! New WH Comms Director Anthony Scaramucci TORCHES Leakers, Says He Can FIRE Anyone

By

Like his boss, new White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci is NOT messing around.

That’s precisely why President Trump chose him for that role.

Since Trump’s inauguration, the White House has been plagued by leaks from Obama holdovers.

Scaramucci’s first order of business is mercilessly rooting out the leakers, and he says the president has given him full authority to take whatever measures necessary.

From Breitbart:

“If I got to get this thing down to me and Sarah Huckabee, then the leaking will stop,” he told White House reporters including Breitbart News in the White House driveway as he entered the West Wing on Tuesday morning.

Scaramucci signaled that there would be no tolerance for leaking, asserting that he had authority from the president to fire whoever he thought necessary.

“Leaking is atrocious, it’s outrageous, it’s unpatriotic, it damages the president personally, it damages the institution of the presidency, and I don’t like it,” he said.

Earlier, Scaramucci had fired White House assistant press secretary Michael Short after learning that he was leaking information regarding the West Wing’s internal operations.

The Trump White House warned that the West Wing is a very small place, and with an attack dog like Scaramucci on the case, it was only a matter of time before any additional leakers were found and booted from the premises.
