Ryan defends Priebus, says he's doing 'fantastic job'

Scaramucci Tagged Priebus in ‘Leaker’ Tweet Then Deletes It

Five days ago, Scaramucci, responding to a question about reported tensions between him and the chief of staff, said he and Priebus "are a little bit like brothers, where we rough each other up a little, which is totally normal for brothers".

The president's new communications director is doubling down on his complaints of leaks within the White House.

"There are leaks and then there are people using the press to shiv each other in the ribs", she said".

It all appears to signal what could be a new and even less stable phase in Trump's young presidency, with considerable energy devoted to palace intrigue and internal power struggles.

"In light of the leak of my financial disclosure info which is a felony". Newly promoted press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders avoided giving a direct answer when asked whether Trump has confidence in Priebus. Since deleting his tweet, Scaramucci has challenged Priebus to deny he has leaked-even though there's no evidence, or even reason to believe, the information was leaked.

Scaramucci also suggested his often tense relationship with Priebus, the former chairman of the Republican National Committee, was similar to that of the Cain and Abel, the biblical brothers.

Sanders asked members of the press to "indulge" her in letting her tell them what serving the American people looks like to her. He asked Trump several questions, including, "How much monny do you have?" and "can we be friends?" "That is a waste of money".

The MeT Centre here predicted that heavy to very heavy rain would occur at several places in Gujarat during the next two days. Incessant rain over the past 36 hours inundated the north Gujarat districts of Banaskantha, Sabarkantha and Patan.

In the clearest sign yet that the president and his new communications director are cut from the same cloth, Scaramucci has spent the past 24 hours publicly complaining about the "leak" of a public document, speculating on Twitter and calling in to television shows. It was released after a public records request by a Politico reporter.

"It starts to potentially smell and approach an inappropriate line", Zaid said.

Asked what he meant by including Priebus, Scaramucci says, "If Reince wants to explain he's not the leaker, he can do that". Witness the ongoing drama of Trump's daily attacks on Attorney General Jeff Sessions, and Sessions' refusal to resign.

But contrary to speculation that the president wants Priebus out, a source close to him told Axios that Trump "feels nothing but sympathy at this point for Reince, whose current state reminds him of the neglected puppies in the viral Sarah McLachlan videos for the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals".

Brad Gerstman, a NY lobbyist and public relations executive, said it probably doesn't matter to Trump that Scaramucci and Priebus don't get along.

But another rule of thumb in Trump's inner circle is that it's never wise to outshine the president.
