Sabotage is over! Leaker is out of the White House.
On Friday afternoon, Reince Priebus was wisely replaced by General John Kelly as Chief of Staff. Kimberly Guilfoyle told Pres. Trump over WH dinner that an anonymous source revealed ‘problem’ Reince Priebus was the administration’s leaker.
Priubus got fired a day after new WH communications director Anthony Scaramucci challenged the alleged to leaker to disprove the accusations.
Washington Examiner reports:
“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.
Ex-Chief of Staff Reince Priebus has long been accused of leaking White House inner workings to the press. Over dinner with President Trump, Fox News’ Kimberly Guilfoyle revealed ‘problem’ Reince Priebus was the administration’s leaker.
The Five co-host was invited, along with her colleague Sean Hannity and former Fox News Executive Bill Shine, to the White House Wednesday night to dine with the president. And a report from The New York Times alleges that Guilfoyle told Trump that his Chief of Staff was ‘a problem’ and ‘a leaker’ during that dinner. According to an anonymous source who was briefed on their conversation, Guilfoyle also told the president that Priebus was “someone who was not serving his agenda.”
On Thursday night, Guilfoyle confirmed to her co-hosts on The Five that she did have dinner with the president. And while she refrained from going into detail about her conversations with Trump, she claimed that he was in a “very, very good mood” and was “enthused” about his agenda going forward.
Guilfoyle didn’t go after Priebus on-air, but she did say that “something needs to be done” regarding to the numerous White House shakeups.
Priebus farewell statement to Trump:
REINCE PRIEBUS: “It as been one of the greatest honors of my life to serve this President and our country. I want to thank the President for giving me this special opportunity. I will continue to serve as a strong supporter of the President’s agenda and policies. I can’t think of a better person than General John Kelly to succeed me and I wish him God’s blessing and great success
