Did Scaramucci Just Threaten Preibus with an FBI Investigation?

Looks like there may be trouble in the White House paradise.

New WH communications director Anthony Scaramucci recently tagged chief of staff Reince Preibus ‘in a tweet about the leaking of Scaramucci’s financial disclosure information,’ reports the Daily Caller.

“In light of the leak of my financial disclosure info which is a felony. I will be contacting FBI and the Justice Department,” Scaramucci wrote Wednesday evening. At the end of the rant, he tagged Priebus… was he accusing him of being behind the leaks though?

The New Yorker’s Ryan Lizza tweeted in reply: In case there’s any ambiguity in his tweet I can confirm that Scaramucci wants the FBI to investigate Reince for leaking.

Scaramucci has vowed to take down White House leakers, stating he will “fire everybody” if necessary.

During a Fox News interview Wednesday morning, Scaramucci said he dislikes the backstabbers in Washington, DC, asserting that he is “more of a front stabber.”

After several news outlets reported that Scaramucci seemed to be threatening Priebus with his tweet, Scaramucci deleted the tweet and followed up with an explanation.

“Wrong!” he said. “Tweet was public notice to leakers that all Sr Adm officials are helping to end illegal leaks.”
