White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci is dead set on ridding 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. of leakers, even if that means he has to “fire everybody.”
The newly-minted White House aide joins an administration plagued by leaks. He told The Washington PostTuesday, “I’m going to fire everybody, that’s how I’m going to do it. You’re either going to stop leaking or you’re going to get fired.”
Politico and Breitbart both reported that Scaramucci had already dismissed assistant press secretary Michael Short as part of the move against leakers. Short is an ally of White House chief of staff Reince Priebus from his days at the Republican National Committee. Short told CNN after the news broke, “No one has told me anything and the entire premise is false.”
