More and more shocking details are emerging since Anthony Scaramucci’s departure as White House communications director.
According to reports, Scaramucci was hired for one main reason: get Reince Priebus out.
This would make sense, given Scaramucci’s immediate focus on Priebus, although it remains unclear whether or not he was planning to stay at his position longer.
Scaramucci went after Priebus like a heat-seeking missile, and within just 10 days, Reince was gone.
It appears that Scaramucci’s early dismissal may have stemmed from some extremely colorful language he used during interviews, as was hinted at by the White House the day of his firing.
From The Blaze
Scaramucci was removed from his position of communications director on Monday after being appointed just a week prior.
The New York Times reported that President Donald Trump’s daughter, Ivanka Trump, and her husband, Jared Kushner, encouraged the president to hire Scaramucci as a ploy to force Priebus out of his position as Chief of Staff.
“Ivanka Trump, the president’s daughter, and Jared Kushner, her husband, had pushed the president to hire Mr. Scaramucci, seeing him as a way to force out Mr. Priebus, the former national Republican committee chairman, and his allies in the West Wing,” the New York Times reported on Monday after Scaramucci’s White House departure.
Additionally, Axios claimed that “Jared and Ivanka were instrumental in bringing in Scaramucci, primarily to take out Reince Priebus.”
“That was his chief (some might say only) duty,” Axios added.
In an update, Axios reporter Jonathan Swan claimed that it was “confirmed” that “Kushner and Ivanka brought in Scaramucci as an instrument of destruction against Reince Priebus.”
