Anthony Scaramucci Has an Anonymous Source on Russia (It's President Trump)

Anthony Scaramucci named Donald Trump's new White House communications director says he's ready to take"dramatic action to stop leaks to the press

Trump's own national security officials, however, recently reaffirmed that Russian Federation was behind the hacking campaign.

One chance Scaramucci said he would support: returning to on-camera White House press briefings, which have become rare in recent weeks.

Newly appointed White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci tweeted Saturday he was scrubbing old tweets that were critical of President Donald Trump so they wouldn't provide a "distraction", The Hill reported.

The interview was mostly Jake Tapper trying to resolve the Trump administration's positions with reality, and Scaramucci accusing Tapper of posing "gotcha" questions (thanks for that, Sarah Palin).

The new communications director was asked about his previous criticism of the president - and a particularly memorable moment when he called Trump a "hack politician" - during his first spin at the briefing room podium on Friday. He also reportedly objected to Trump's vision for the future of the press operation. The cable channel retracted a story about Scaramucci and fired three journalists.

Marvel (and Netflix ) fans have high hopes for Marvel's The Defenders and this trailer does nothing to squash those expectations. All 13 episodes of the show's first season are now available to stream through Netflix .

Scaramucci also characterized Donald Trump Jr.'s controversial meeting with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya and Russian-American lobbyist Rinat Akhmetshin a year ago at Trump Tower as a "non-event" and "a nothing meeting".

He was a campaign fundraiser for Trump and regular adviser during the presidential transition who's been considered for multiple jobs in the administration, most recently ambassador to the Paris-based Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development.

Trump has previously been vague on whether or not he believes Russian Federation meddled in the USA election, stating early in the month that "other people in other countries" could have interfered in the election, The Hill reported.

Spicer remained loyal to Trump but frequently battled perceptions that he was not plugged into what the president was thinking.

He defended Chief Justice John Roberts, who Trump attacked.

Americans don't know what Democrats represent, said Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) in an appearance on ABC's This Week Sunday, because of his party's failure of policy vision and messaging in 2016. "This threat is real".

'We don't, we don't need Kleenex, we don't need any Kleenex, ' Tapper shot back. "And we're intent upon doing that".

"I think the gist of that leak basically or that tweet I should say is that he's not going to pardon anybody".

"There feels like there's a little bit of media bias, and so what we hope we can do is de-escalate that and turn that around".

"From a state actor perspective", the "greatest threat" now facing the USA is Russia, Joint Chiefs chairman Dunford told NBC's Andrea Mitchell on Saturday. As far as Russian Federation is concerned, only time will tell what, if anything, Scaramucci's appointment will bring to the table.
