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

The tweet has since been deleted.

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.

Over the last five days, Scaramucci said to CNN, he has done "a major amount of work" interviewing assistants to the president and communications staff.

Scaramucci previously described Preibus as "his brother".

Scaramucci was offered a position with the administration in January, and has been working with federal ethics officials since then to "ensure that he divests all identified assets that could pose a conflict of interest under all federal laws and regulations", said his attorney, Elliot S. Berke of Berke Farah LLP.

On Wednesday night, Scaramucci's financial disclosure report surfaced, and although it is on public record, he blamed it on leaks.

The tension between Scaramucci and Priebus flared after Politico published a story Wednesday about Scaramucci's publicly available financial disclosure form showing he still stands to profit from his stake in an investment firm he founded.

Scaramucci said he had spoken with Trump for 15 minutes to go over what he was going to say before he called CNN, implying his warning to Priebus carried Trump's backing.

The Roomba is an automated floor cleaner that can be activated via an app and find its own way around, using sensors and a camera. Of course all this is just speculation on how data collected by the Roomba could help the smart home industry.

Mr. Scaramucci filed the disclosure form in connection with his previous, short-lived job with the Trump administration at the Export-Import Bank. But I can tell you two fish that don't stink, okay? On a morning news show! - the White House chief of staff of criminal leaking.

Wikileaks, for example, tweeted, "Your financial disclosure report is a public document", with an image of instructions on how to obtain such a report. "'Act like you've been there before.' Act with honor and dignity and respect and hold the confidence of the presidency and his office", Scaramucci said. (In fact, the disclosure form is a public document available upon request.) "In case there's any ambiguity in his tweet I can confirm that Scaramucci wants the FBI to investigate Reince for leaking", the New Yorker's Ryan Lizza tweeted.

"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".

Trump's first White House press secretary, Sean Spicer, resigned last week with the news that Scaramucci was being brought on as communications director.

Trump has also publicly denounced leaks of unflattering revelations about his team, which is deeply embroiled in an FBI investigation of Russia's meddling in the 2016 USA election and possible collusion with the Trump campaign.

"I'm not aware of the latter", Conway said of Scaramucci reporting Priebus, but did not deny that Priebus is a leaker.

Scaramucci and Priebus have long had a strained relationship, but Thursday's interview is the most public airing of that relationship yet.
