Incoming White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci said Thursday that he’s not accusing White House chief of staff Reince Priebus of being a leaker, but said if reporters think he is a leaker, Priebus should maybe explain himself.
“If Reince wants to explain that he’s not a leaker, let him do that,” Scaramucci said on CNN.
His comment came hours after Scaramucci tweeted that he was going to be contacting the FBI about the leak of his personal financial information, and ended his tweet “@Reince45.”
Some saw that as a sign that he thinks Priebus is a leaker who should be investigated. Scaramucci himself said soon after that tweet that he was not accusing the White House chief of staff, and on CNN, he said it was meant to indicate that he and Priebus have to work together to find the leakers.
