“Sources Say”: RNC officials who followed Spicer, Priebus to White House worried about jobs…

The palace intrigue continues…

(WASHINGTON DC via Fox News) Multiple former Republican National Committee officials who followed Reince Preibus and Sean Spicer to the White House are “seriously concerned” about their jobs now that President Trump tapped Anthony Scaramucci as his new communications director, White House sources told Fox News.

The sources said Scaramucci’s influence has skyrocketed inside the West Wing. The Washington Post reported that “Scaramucci has moved into Trump’s inner sanctum and is now described by some colleagues as almost family to the president.”

Priebus, the White House chief of staff, said in an interview that he supports Scaramucci “100 percent,” despite reportedly trying to prevent the financier from getting multiple administration positions.

Ivanka Trump, the president’s daughter, and her husband, senior aide Jared Kushner, had known Scaramucci for years from New York and pushed for his hire.

Lindsay Walters, the White House deputy press secretary, said Priebus “is focused on driving the president’s bold agenda, and that has been and always will be his top priority.”

A White House official told Politico that Scaramucci is being considered to succeed Priebus. Scaramucci has made it clear on Twitter that he answers only to Trump.

The Post, citing several unnamed officials, reported that Scaramucci has started an audit on staffers. He is reportedly meeting with them and weeding out “those he determines are not working hard enough to defend the president.”

The staffers whose jobs are secure are Sarah Huckabee Sanders, Hope Hicks and Dan Scavino. (read more)

    look folks….Trump “owes” nobody anything…he is PRESIDENT and has a JOB to do…if folks campaigned for him great….it they are Republican and backed his agenda…great…but right now he has a HUGE job to do, and everyone on the Federal Govt payroll MUST GET THE JOB done that he dictates….nothing more or less.
    If Mueller and his team of specials cannot get on with their stupid investigation RIGHT NOW and quickly, they need to GO….they are not there to entertain the public and titilate the media pundits.

    The Russian crap has had PLENTY of time to be investigated, documented, and a report prepared…to keep it going is unproductive….it is not going anywhere and we all know it…and if Mueller cannot PRODUCE results fast, he is a waste of money.

    If Jeff Sessions cannot move and do it fast because he has folks that will not work hard and fast…and if he does not fire the non productives, then Jess is just a Figurehead AG and not a romping stomping turnaround justice guy…he acts like he is doing an Eric Holder/Loretta Lynch slow walk….gotta run and chew gum at the same time….Trump does not need Congress Types that talk and posture but do nothing….HE MADE that clear from the git go.

    I think I like Jess Sessions…but if he worked for me, in a critical time driven sensitive TURN AROUND…I would kick him until he moved faster and produced results, or just resigned in admission that he is not the guy to fix the Justice Dept.

    Trump is vocal…and Sessions does not have to guess if Trump is displeased…the issue is WHAT IS SESSIONS going to do HIMSELF.

    Cure it or kill it. Clearing out the swamp is for real men, not for political hackers.

      It’s the old adage ” lead, follow, or get out of the way”. Sessions is a white hat who is “all hat and no cattle”. Recusing himself from the HIllary corruption and the Russian election non sense, was weak and left the palace gates open to Trumps enemies. Trump should have Sessions via RR fire Mueller and appoint either Gulliani or Christy as a Special Prosecutor. Sessions stays on and Mueller is replaced with Trump friendlies who can investigate the real crimes committed by Obama and Clinton.

      Mueller is there, not to look into Russia, but has a band of Democrat donors (aka ‘resistance’ operatives) there to investigate the Trump family and their businesses. He is there as the cannon shot from the establishment to any ‘outsider’ who wants to run for political office.

      Step back…. this is not a good ‘look’ at all for the Federal government in general and the DOJ in particular. Despite the rhetoric this is 3’rd world nonsense and will forever dispel the notion that we are a government ‘of the people, by the people, and for the people’ if Mueller/establishment is successful. This will lead to the ultimate withdrawal of consent from the American people for the Federal Government.

      Turn the heat up on Congress and Senate and cc your governor, state reps and senators. They are the lesser magistrates and have a legitimate role to play to protect their citizens from tyranny.

      When AG Sessions was being confirmed to AG remember when Senator Grassley (R) of Iowa asked Sessions if he would recuse himself from investigating the Clinton’s and the Foundation as not to politicize the position of AG. Session did work the Trump Campaign so that would be a conflict of interest.
      I like Jeff Sessions he is an Honorable man that does not place himself above the law . President Trump ran his campaign on restoring Law n Order and I would expect his AG to do the same .
      I was with President Trump from the beginning and want the Clinton’s investigated . If President Trump fires Jeff Sessions who will replace him ?
      Gowdy , Cruz , Rudy ?
      I am not big Cruz fan but , all these people also expressed that Clinton’s need to be investigated and they’re right so , first , how long will it take to confirm another AG with the District of Criminals and second , will Grassley also set the pretext that an AG cannot use the office to politicize , even though both Holder and Lynch did …

    • If anyone is unsure of the political nature of the “Russia” investigation consider these things :

      1. The Warren Commission was appointed and started on November 29, 1963, the 888 page report was completed on September 24, 1964. That’s eleven months if you are counting…this report was documentation of the government’s complete investigation of a publicly assassinated POTUS, JFK!

      2. The 911 commission began on November 27, 2002, it was closed and the final report was released on August 21, 2004. If you are doing the math that’s one year and nine months.

      Are we seeing an issue here? These two famous commissions with the accompanying investigations and documentation were for more extensive in scope then anything Mueller is investigating! Look at the time and how extensive the investigations of JFK and 911 were…now look at how fast these were completed.

      911, four planes high jacked in American airports, planes hit and brought down the two World Trade Towers, terrorist, failed security, death, mayhem on and on, yet somehow it only took a year and nine months to complete this investigation, and JFK, a PUBLICLY murdered American President…WOW…nine months start to finish!!!

      So you mean to tell me that this Russia Hoax is in scale with these two catastrophic and history changing events? I shutter to think how we, as Americans can look at ourselves in the mirror if we allow this Russia Hoax to continue, especially if this investigation takes longer then either the JFK or the 911 investigations!

      Seriously we should be ashamed of ourselves…the WHOLE COUNTRY!

    First, upstream comment about lots of trolls here is correct. Second, if we are to believe that Sessions is about to be fired, then we must believe that Sessions somehow fooled Trump into thinking that Sessions was a MAGA kind of guy. Does any real Treeper believe that?

    I don’t. I believe our President is doing what he always does when he’s about to make a major move against his enemies. They’re thinking (again) “We’ve got him now! He’s on the run! GOP civil war! Sessions is out, and Trump’ll never get another AG through the Senate. Hot damn, have we got him now!”

    Watch closely. It’s all a diversion. “Watch the shells while I’m getting ready to cut your throat.” Mueller and his minions, pursuing Trump like rabid dogs, ARE IN FACT ESTABLISING THE BREADTH AND DEPTH OF THE INVESTIGATION TO COME AGAINST THE DEEP STATE HEAVIES. Ummm, who might that be?

      I have to agree with your assessment. First – I don’t think ANYONE puts ANYTHING over on President Trump. He’s no dummy – – he’s seen it all and survived and prospered. Secondly, everyone talks about the “Southern Gentleman” Sessions and how he’s not a street fighter. If that were the case, he would have done the honorable thing and resigned immediately upon the President’s tweet storm against him. He hasn’t and in fact has said that he has no intention of resigning. Now fast forward to today and we have all of the Congress (Dems & RINOS) defending Sessions and what an upstanding person he is and his motives can never be suspect. We also have Paul Ryan defending Mueller and saying he’s the ultimate “non-partisan”. Trump is also on record praising John McCain today. I may be wrong (hope not) but I think something very big is coming very soon. I think the tweet storm about Sessions was cover for the announcement of the investigations (and dare I say indictments) that will soon come out. Then we’ll watch everyone walk back their comments about Sessions and we’ll hear that he’s the son of Satan!! I have popcorn ready!

      I think Sessions support of the President was real. Sessions should have known he would have to recuse from anything affecting the campaign. It took him quite a while to get confirmed, so Sessions knew the extent of investigations against the President. Sessions was fooled by Rosenstein. I don’t think Sessions saw Rosenstein hiring the SC. When Rosenstein hired the SC, Sessions should have fired him because Rosenstein hired the SC without an underlying crime. The investigation then became a 4th amendment violation of the President, his family and associates. Sessions has let this fester.

Sessions evidently is not as concerned about the day-to-day corruption and Washington as we thought he might be. It just looks like politics to him. I’ve always liked Jeff Sessions. A lot. But Trump is being very badly served by the Department of Justice and the FBI. And that’s Session’s department. And that has to change.

    Firing Sessions would be a big mistake, in my view. That said, Sessions not relieving McCabe of his duties as Acting FBI Director is very hard for me to understand. He was in charge of Clinton’s email investigation and should have recused himself.
    The sad thing is Sessions hasn’t been able to put his team in place. I’m not sure there are enough ” good” people ready to take high level roles in the FBI yet. For crying out loud, the investigators couldn’t put a case together to indict Clinton.
    If Comey stifled them, where are the Agents coming forward to complain?

    One last thing. Sessions did not stand up well in the last hearing, in my opinion. But firing him will set our MAGA back a bunch.

    Trey Gowdy was supposed to be a pitbull of a prosecutor. Sessions was supposed to be a one man wrecking crew moving the Presidential agenda. Mueller is the most judicious and honorable man in Washington and has a saintly halo over his head according to all the supposed experts. Priebus was given multiple votes of confidence by the President. Ryan and McConnell spouting platitudes but slithering away from real leadership. On on and on with entrenched Republican leadership. The vast majority of the power brokers, money people and intelligentsia on the right are either explicitly hostile or unenthusiastic about the MAGA objective. And that’s not even factoring in the left and all their media and ideological hostility.

    The President is being reduced to tweets of frustration directed to his own side as much as to the other. Absolutely and stunningly insane. It is a sad state of affairs watching his inner circle shrink because of distrust, failure and cowardice in moving his agenda efficiently.

    Obviously the sewer has been exposed, but so what? Not a single one of it’s leaders has suffered the slightest inconvenience, let alone prosecution. Each day that goes by seems to make that possibility seem more and more unlikely. And morale cannot be positive and upbeat with the Presidential loyalists constantly surrounded by change and suspicion.

    We have all learned the swamp encompasses so much of the vast bureaucracy of Washington on both sides. How do you vet thousands and thousands of the career insider? They have all been comfortable with the status quo, regardless of party preference. For the first time in history, the system is being threatened by an outsider.

    The President and his small loyal crew are fighting valliantly, but are so outnumbered and sabotaged at every turn that it will take a monumental shift of major proportion to regain momentum. Massive prosecution, major legislation, exposure of traitors, not more and more tweets of frustration.

Over the last couple of years it’s been common practice for everyone to jump to conclusions about what he says – and then when the dust settles everything makes perfect sense.

    Scaramucci Attacks Media for Reporting on News That He Leaked

    White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci slammed the media for reporting on a leaked firing, despite the fact he was the one who leaked it in the first place.

    Scaramucci was asked by reporters on the White House driveway Tuesday about the reported firing of assistant press secretary Michael Short, the Hill reported.

    “This is the problem with the leaking,” Scaramucci said. “This is actually a terrible thing.”

    “Let’s say I’m firing Michael Short today,” he continued. “The fact that you guys know about it before he does really upsets me as a human being and as a Roman Catholic.”

    But Scaramucci’s complaint was an odd one. The news of Short’s firing was first reported by Politico, which cited Scaramucci himself as its source.

    “Newly appointed White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci said on Tuesday that he plans to dismiss assistant press secretary Michael Short,” read the piece’s lede.

    “Scaramucci warned that Short would be the first of many, if he’s not able to stop the leaks coming out of the communications and press shop,” the piece continues.

    Politico even quoted Scaramucci directly. “I’m committed to taking the comms shop down to Sarah [Huckabee Sanders] and me, if I can’t get the leaks to stop,” he said.

      I don’t think that means Scaramucci leaked it. If he said it in a meeting, and someone leaked what he said, they would quote Scaramucci. I believe that to be what happened,

        Yes, like maybe Scarramucci said it but it was suppose to be off-the-record? He should have known the media does not adhere to privacy rules when they think it will hurt President Trump. Now he knows.

        OR now he knows who the leaker is…..?

          I think the latter. He’s been in the public eye too long and already burned by CNN to believe in “off the record”,

            I like the idea that now he knows who the leaker is….I hope he fires the whole shebang. It’s all supposition anyway but hopefully we’ll know the truth of the matter soon.

    Spicer missed his opportunity to implement meaningful change.

    I doubt Scaramucci will miss his.

    I’m still amazed that no one… Attorney General, Senator, Mike Pompeo , even a SCOTUS Justice or high up law enforcement person has yet to comment on this from John Brennan! This is sedition, it is taking a political battle to a hot civil-war status. The guy needs to be called out NOW and made to retract….. not like you or I calling for this. This is NOT the rule of law.

      If it is okay for someone on “their team” to deliver pallets of cash made up of American taxpayer monies to Iran in the middle of the night with no inquiry, then clearly, nothing that they say is going to bother them.

      I read that article and find his language to be both un-American and threatening.

    Does anyone have a link to the story of Short leaving the campaign and dissing Candidate Trump?

    Oh, and frankly, I don’t think Sessions is going anywhere. Something else is afoot 😀

    The vote to debate the health care issue just took place. In recapping the events, on Fox, Neil Cavuto just asked Gingrich why doesn’t President Trump fire AG sessions if he’s that, obviously, unhappy with him, Gingrich says: ‘because he doesn’t like to fire people. Even in his business.’

    !?!? Really!?!

    And THEN Gingrich adds, ‘I don’t think this is over with’.

    Now, if that doesn’t lead Deplorables to think Trump indeed has things in his control, I don’t know what would.

    The story continues to unfold.

    The sources said Scaramucci’s influence has skyrocketed inside the West Wing. The Washington Post reported that “Scaramucci has moved into Trump’s inner sanctum and is now described by some colleagues as almost family to the president.”

  28. As a former cheerleader for Sessions I’m now convinced he thought he would be in the catbird seat. He’d be able to work for a strictly limited MAGA agenda by controlling Trump with the assistance of his DC “colleagues”. That meant appointing a GOP-e approved deputy, slow walking or abandoning Swamp corruption cases and being completely passive regarding Swamp attacks and stratagems used to isolate POTUS. Sessions believes the AG position is a free floating, operation and not an arm of the executive branch.

    There appears to be a legal strategy at work that will have scant chance of ultimate success should Sessions be fired, but at least some chance of success if he can be forced to resign. Given the last 24 hours, this seems to be the immediate goal in a several-step process. More attacks on Sessions from the White House will remove any doubt as to the strategy.

      I think if this is the legal strategy, it needs to be carefully re-considered. Those who want Sessions gone must understand the risks involved in the next steps. It’s a crap shoot, and grinding it out on the “pass line” might be preferable to betting on the “hard 8”. But, we shall see.
