Bill Kristol: Trump May Fire Scaramucci Over Tirade

CNN's "OutFront"

Anthony Scaramucci's profane-laced tirade and threats against Chief of Staff Reince Priebus and senior strategist Steve Bannon may soon get him fired by President Donald Trump, conservative journalist Bill Kristol predicted Thursday.

"People are underestimating how bad this is and are underestimating how much Trump will dislike it," Kristol, editor-at-large at The Weekly Standard, told Erin Burnett on CNN. "I wouldn't be surprised to see him back at the Ex-Im Bank in a couple of weeks.

"Whatever you think of Reince Priebus and Steve Bannon, this is on a scale different from anything at the Trump White House or anything I have really seen.

"And it is Nixonian, right?" Kristol asked. "I'm going to sick the FBI on you?"

Scaramucci, a senior vice president at the Export-Import Bank who was hired last week as White House communications director, slammed Priebus and Bannon in The New Yorker.

He called Ryan Lizza after the Washington correspondent reported he had dinner at the White House with Trump, Fox News host Sean Hannity and former Fox executive Bill Shine.

Afterward, Scaramucci ripped Priebus on Twitter, threatening to call out the FBI and the Justice Department over what he said was a leak of his personal financial information.

The data, reported by Politico, resulted from financial disclosure form that can be obtained through regular channels from the Export-Import Bank.

Trump's hiring of Scaramucci, who officially begins Aug. 15, prompted Sean Spicer to resign as head of the White House press operation.

"I believe it would be illegal for a White House aide to go to the FBI and the Department of Justice and say, 'I'd like you to tap or report to me the phone calls made by the people at the White House,'" Kristol told Burnett.

"He probably didn't do it, but he probably thought of doing it."
