In his first weekend as the new White House Communications Director, Anthony Scaramucci, took to multiple cable news outlets to slam the latest leaks coming out of the White House, and vowed swift action in order to halt any future leaks.
“If we don’t get the leaks stopped, I am a businessperson, and so I will take dramatic action to stop those leaks.” Scaramucci told Fox News’s Maria Bartiomo on Sunday.
He later appeared on the CBS program, Meet The Press, and went so far as to call the source of the leaks “un-American”, and said that he would lead a meeting of the communications department on Monday to outline his new approach and to offer a “reset” within the department.
Scaramucci is expected to bring a fresh hands-on and more naturally-combative style to the communications team, at a time of intense media pressure on the Trump administration over probes into allegations that members of the Trump cabinet and team colluded with the Russian government during the 2016 presidential campaign.
Reports have indicated that Scaramucci would be in favor of a “ground-up” firing if the leaks continue after the Monday meeting, although no official confirmation of that has been offered by neither the White House or the Communications team.
