Cleaning House: Scaramucci Already Weeding Out The ‘Leakers’


In only a few days on the job, new White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci is already doing what others have been unable to do. He is weeding out the people responsible for leaking key White House intel to the press. Scaramucci had made the claim that this was his top priority and it appears that he was telling the truth.

Former assistant press secretary, Michael Short, fired on Tuesday.

Michael Short, the (now-former) assistant press secretary, was the first casualty of the promise of Scaramucci. Politico reported (and confirmed via Anthony Scaramucci himself) early Tuesday morning that Short was going to be fired later that day. When questioned about the report, Short gave no inclination that he already knew of the news, but then resigned Tuesday afternoon before being fired. Scaramucci was very direct with his disdain that Short would learn of his pending termination from the media before he even received the news officially.

Anthony Scaramucci to reporters at the White House on Tuesday:

“This is the problem with the leaking. This is actually a terrible thing. Let’s say I’m firing Michael Short today. The fact that you guys know about it before he does really upsets me as a human being and as a Roman Catholic.”

Tuesday’s firing to be the first of many by the new White House Communications Director.

From Politico:

“I’m going to fire everybody, that’s how I’m going to do it,” Scaramucci said to reporters outside of the White House on Tuesday. “You’re either going to stop leaking or you’re going to be fired.”

It’s refreshing to see someone keeping their word in regards to stopping the leaks. The slow drip of information and it’s subsequent spinning and distortion by the liberal media has been the one sticking point to the Trump administration thus far. Not only has it been detrimental to President Trump pushing through his agenda due to not being able to control the narrative, but it has given unfounded fuel to the fire of those that are ‘out for blood’ in the Russian investigation. A couple soundbites or anonymous quotes completely out of the scope of context are not only insignificant, but they are destructive when trying to find the real truth in a story or investigation. My hope is that Anthony Scaramucci completely cleans house. We need to get this course corrected.
