WH Communications Director Scaramucci Requests FBI Investigation of WH Leaker (Priebus?)…

Interesting development.  If you follow the nuance within twitter-speak it would appear that White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci is flagging Chief of Staff Reince Priebus as a potential leaker.  At least that’s the juicy narrative angle clutched upon by the always sketchy, and easily distracted to the ‘shiny thing’, WHCA (White House Correspondents Association) membership.

Or it could be far more innocuous in that Mr. Scaramucci was just notifying Mr. Priebus of the issue by adding his twitter address to the tweet.  You decide.

WASHINGTON DC – […]  While it’s unclear why Scaramucci tagged Priebus, Priebus has been named as a potential leaker by some Trump supporters, like Roger Stone.  Ryan Lizza, Washington correspondent for the New Yorker, tweeted that he can confirm that Scaramucci wants the FBI to investigate Priebus for leaking.

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.

The report picks apart Scaramucci’s wealth, including assets worth as much as $85 million. It also discusses the millions of dollars Scaramucci is positioned to obtain from his ownership stake in his investment firm SkyBridge Capital. The report says Politico reached out to White House spokeswoman Natalie Strom for comment on Scaramucci’s SkyBridge investment to the Treasury Department, and that a Treasury spokeswoman, Marisol Garibay, did not immediately return requests for comment.  (read more)

    Sarah Isgur Flores – ICKY. I don’t trust her as far as I can throw her. She’s a Cubanadian Cruz plant.

    Bill Shine had dinner with the President – Another BIG YUCK! An Ailes/Murdock throwaway, and protector of bad men behaving badly.

      Sarah Isgur Flores was originally with Carly Fiorino and THE reason why Cruz gave Carly mucho buckos during primary.

      btw, Bill Shine is NOT a Murdock lackie – FAR from it – and was one of the conservative good guys at FOX until he was kicked out by the Murdoch bros in their purge. Shine was VERY staunchly defended by Hannity.

        Freeperjim, Sarah Isgur Flores was with Cruz, was one of the skanks accused of getting too close to him, and THEN she got moved to Snarly along with significant Cruz campaign money to bankroll her, among other things. I was appalled to learn Sessions had made her DOJ spokesperson.

          I hope that they had a good dinner and that it translates good. A bit off topic but I am very upset today, as the way I see it, Mr. McCain’s best buddy, Blondie, (I am so angry at the injustice today of constant threats against the President, that I can’t even mention his name, but you know who I mean, the arrogant idiot that ran for President and Trump knocked him out so fast, it made his head spin), anyway McCain’s best buddy threatened the President Trump today, July 27, 2017, saying like “all hell will break loose if Trump fires Sessions”? and this will happen to Trump and that will happen to Trump, if he fires Mueller too?. This is no doubt in my mind, these words by this viscious Republican are threats to the President of the United States and this “best buddy” arrogant dangerous ass of John McCain, with his dangerous talk against the President should be charged with threatening the President of the United States. Does anyone realize that he threatened the President today with this kind of dangerous talk? THESE THREATS ARE AGAINST THE LAW AND SHOULD BE DELT WITH BY THE PRESIDENT AND HIS ADMINISTRATION IMMEDIATELY WITH CRIMINAL CHARGES. And also, “McCain’s mouthpiece, best buddy said today he is introducing a bill to stop the President from firing Sessions? This is threatening the President more than once or twice and also the President should immediately have him charged with crimes, like threatening and/or menacing, I repeat, the President of the United States of America.

    No one seems to remember the second IRS scandal, the alleged release of confidential taxpayer data to the White House:

    The IRS improperly turned over thousands of confidential tax documents to the White House for review, according to information obtained from a lawsuit filed against the U.S. Treasury Department’s inspector general by the legal advocacy firm Cause of Action, exposing a pipeline of communication between the two, the Daily Caller reports.

    “[T]he Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) informed Cause of Action that there exist nearly 2,500 potentially responsive documents relating to investigations of improper disclosures of confidential taxpayer information by the IRS to the White House,” Cause of Action noted, according to the Daily Caller.

    http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2014/nov/28/irs-accused-of-sharing-2500-private-taxpayer-docum/

    Enough Already On IRS Targeting! Maybe, But Whose Tax Returns Went To White House And Why?
    A judge ruled that the IRS must turn over any relevant documents to Cause of Action. The Treasury Inspector General admitted that it has thousands of pages of responsive documents containing private taxpayer data. That admission seems conclusive. We just do not know whose tax records they are and who at the White House wanted them. Why would communications between the IRS and the White House contain confidential taxpayer information that by law is restricted to the IRS?

    The Treasury Inspector General withheld nearly all of the 2,500 documents it located related to unauthorized IRS leaks to the White House. It released only 31 pages, 27 of which were already publicly available. Eventually, we hope to see them all, but that is still not certain. Regardless of whether the White House asked for any taxpayer information or someone at the IRS just sent it (‘hey, take a look at this…’), the IRS transmitted some.

    • Good stuff! I have an IRS leak experience. My wife’s cousin (who is a narcissist) went to IRS training school to become an agent. (auditor). This fool looked up all the people he knew and blabbed their personal details to anyone who’d listen. This included my 1040s and 1120s form data. as you know there is a LOT of personal data in your tax files. What did they do to him? put him in another government department. That was his punishment. Can you believe that crap?

      “I’m a straight shooter and I’ll go right to the heart of the matter” – Mucci

      I absolutely LOVE this attitude!

      Before I started my own company with international partners, I earned an MBA w/National Honors and eventually became an officer in a $400M construction company reporting directly to the Chairman on M&A projects, liaison with acquired companies and new business development.

      The Number 1 attribute for success at any senior level is the ability to cut through the noise and accurately identify the core issue – absolutely mandatory to create an effective strategic policy. Mucci has the attribute.

      • I think Mucci is there to take some of the media load off President Trump. President Trump has been fighting against these media leaks all alone and now he has someone who will fight as hard as he has, which will give President Trump more time to MAGA.

        “Scaramucci also expressed frustration that his dinner with Fox News host Sean Hannity and former Fox News executive Bill Shine, leaked to the media minutes after it began.”

        “It’s absolutely completely and totally reprehensible,” he said. “As you know from the Italian expression, the fish stinks from the head down, I can tell you two fish that don’t stink, that’s me and the president.”

          • I don’t have a problem with Newt but he can be very wishy washy, and a bit too GOPe when the tough get going. Mucci has a very no nonsense approach, much like President Trump. I remember when Spicer came out with guns-a-blazing at his first press briefing. Spicer was not happy about the fake news being reported of a low turn out rate at President Trump’s inauguration, which I’m sure was a reflection of President Trump’s total disgusted of the continued media lies. Once the leaks were coming out, unfortunately Spicer didn’t keep up the momentum and didn’t do much about investigating the origin of the leaks. Mucci is just picking up where Spicer should have went. IMO

        Exactly.

        Mooch reports directly to Pres so perhaps is trying to keep CoS in the loop. He could have written a memo but that would have been “leaked” and the media would have had another story lauding and magnifying their unnamed sources. A Tweet is out in the open everyone can see and the media can’t make a “big deal” of it and in so doing continue the narrative of this WH “leaking like a sieve” which then promotes the narrative that not even POTUS’s people are loyal to him.

        Another possibility is that they’r watching to see which rats scurry where after this Tweet.

        Just trying to think like you have to think to avoid being eaten by the piranhas in the media and/or the crocodiles on the bank (Republicans). I hear bull sharks (Democrats) also inhabit fresh water lakes and rivers.

    Kellyanne Conway gave an interview on F&F a bit ago. Steve told her that there is reporting that Priebus is the leaker and that Scaramucci notified the FBI that he was the leaker. She stated that she was unaware of the latter.

    She had a smile on her face and she did not deny he is the leaker.

    Just a thought – Reince Preibus is not the leaker, but knows who they are.They are under him (which could be anybody), but they aren’t doing the actual leaking.
    The leaks about Scaramucci do have a juvenile aspect to them, which does suggest a low-level flunky who thinks he’s protected because he’s doing what his bosses want. I think Reince knows who those bosses are.
    Remember what happened to the Christie employees who took it upon themselves to punish the people by means of a bridge? Doing what the boss would have wanted didn’t help them at all, did it?
    These people had better think long and hard about how far out on a limb they want to go for someone else’s benefit.
    Imagine being one of the higher ups, and having this guy sicced on you? They understand the consequences.

    Here goes with another Godfather reference. When Michael was in the process of taking over for the Godfather, I think it was Tom Hagen who was impressed with “Rocco” and observed “I think Michael has found his Luca Bratzi.” With respect to Scaramucci, it looks like Trump has found his James Carville. Love him or hate him, he was smart, tough, tireless, and 100% loyal to the Clinton Crime Family. Trump needs someone like that.
