Obama 'Holdovers' Aren't Helping: Scaramucci Cracking Down on White House Leaks
Programming Alert: Hear more from Anthony Scaramucci on his plan to plug the White House leaks, tonight on "Hannity" at 10:00pm ET.
New White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci said it's impossible in Washington D.C. to fully eliminate leaks, but vowed that a crackdown is underway.
Scaramucci said the crackdown will take place on multiple fronts, including among Obama administration holdovers who are "not helping" the situation.
He said he's starting by trying to stop leaks among senior staffers in the White House about each other.
"That does not serve the president or his agenda and it's an indictment on the institution of the presidency. It makes all of us look bad and I think the president deserves better than that," he said on "Fox & Friends."
Scaramucci said the "cultural reset" will come within the White House and that he'll work with other agencies to stop the leaks.
Steve Doocy then asked about the resignation of Michael Short, senior assistant press secretary, and whether he was a "leaker."
"I don't know him personally. I don't want to hurt his reputation. ... People make mistakes in life," Scaramucci said, adding that he'll help Short find a new job outside the administration.
