Priebus On the Outside Looking In

Scaramucci Starts Out Off the Leash


USA Today: “It’s on: Scaramucci vs. Priebus.”

“The near-constant infighting within President Trump’s staff burst back into public view Thursday, after newly hired White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci — less than a week on the job — sent a contentious tweet and gave an aggressive television interview that appeared to finger White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus as a leaker.”

“‘The president, as always, enjoys healthy competition, and conversation, and he sees that as such,’ said White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders.”

“Some analysts said Scaramucci’s hiring signals a possible purge, maybe even of Priebus himself.”
