Scaramucci to Contact the FBI About 'Felony' Financial Disclosure 'Leak'

Scaramucci had tweeted and then deleted a call for the FBI to investigate the leak, calling it a "felony" and tagging White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus in the tweet.

Karl Rove told FOX Business that there is no leaking at all of Anthony Scaramucci's financial information and it's easily accessible.

Scaramucci and Priebus have been known to butt heads in the past, and Priebus, NBC News previously reported, did not want Scaramucci hired inside the White House. Other brothers can fight with each other and get along.

Conway would only say "leakers are easier to figure out than they may think", and that the president is particularly concerned about leaks from the intelligence community.

"The "leak" Scaramucci is referring to is likely a reference to a Politico report Wednesday evening, which details Scaramucci's financial disclosure filed with the Office of Government Ethics".

Anthony Scaramucci, President Trump's communications director, ripped a page from the playbook of the late Joe Paterno, quoting the former Penn State coach during a lengthy call-in to CNN. "Let me tell you something about myself - I am a straight shooter, and I'll go right to the heart of the matter".

There has been no official word from the White House about the deleted tweet, but we will continue to reach out to them for comment.


Wikileaks, for example, tweeted, "Your financial disclosure report is a public document", with an image of instructions on how to obtain such a report. "I don't know if this is reparable or not, that's up to the president". He later deleted the tweet, apparently after being informed that the form was not leaked.

Priebus has previously sought to downplay suggestions that he was at odds with Scaramucci.

Of course, this isn't the first time Scaramucci has mentioned Paterno and it appears that he pays nearly as much attention to sports as Trump.

"However, when I put out a tweet and I put Reince's name in the tweet, they're all making the assumption that it's him because journalists know who the leakers are". Scaramucci founded SkyBridge in 2005, and is still listed on its website as the managing director of the investment firm, Politico reports, even though he's been a government employee for more than a month. "I will be contacting Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Justice Department", Scaramucci wrote Wednesday night with the hashtag "swamp".

"So if Reince wants to explain he's not a leaker, let him do that".

Speaking on CNN Thursday morning, Scaramucci was more explicit about his tweet.
