Anthony Scaramucci, newest White House hire, has a message for those leaking information from the White House.
“Tomorrow I’m going to have a staff meeting. And it’s going to be a very binary thing. I’m not going to make any prejudgments about anybody on that staff. If they want to stay on the staff, they’re going to stop leaking,”
“If you’re going to keep leaking, I’m going to fire everybody. It’s just very binary,” he said.
He added that leaking intel from the White House is un-American.
Scaramucci said that he is going to work on preventing new leaks by changing the White House “culture” . Leaking is both unprofessional and harmful he added.
“While all agree the U. S. President has the complete power to pardon, why think of that when only crime so far is LEAKS against us,” Mr. Trump tweeted on Saturday.

“I think the gist of that leak basically or that tweet I should say is that he’s not going to pardon anybody. He doesn’t need to pardon anybody,” Scaramucci said Sunday.
“And it’s just really about the leaking that is actually injurious to the government, felonious to the government.”
He added, “There’s no need for him to pardon anybody. But he just doesn’t like the fact that he has a two-minute conversation in the Oval Office or in his study and that people are running out and leaking that.”
“I think it is nonsensical and more Washington nonsense that we have to take this political purity ideological test. So if I said I was for something and now I’m against something, that makes me a hypocrite. I don’t believe in that. I think it’s stupid. And I want to subordinate my political views to the views of the president and his agenda,” said Scaramucci.
