Scaramucci fires suspected leaker Michael Short from White House

SPREAD THE WORD:

Anthony Scaramucci has fired the suspected White House leaker Michael Short, who briefly left the campaign last year only to come back in 2017. Multiple White House officials have confirmed the termination.


Michael Short, the suspected within the White House, has been formally dismissed by new White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci.

The report of Short's termination released early Tuesday morning.

“Newly appointed White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci said on Tuesday that he plans to dismiss assistant press secretary Michael Short,” Politico's Tara Palmeri wrote on Tuesday morning. “It would be Scaramucci’s first step toward shaking up the communications shop, which has been dominated by former Republican National Committee staffers loyal to White House chief of staff Reince Priebus, a former RNC chairman.”

Short was an apparent ally of White House chief of staff Reince Priebus, who assigned him his role in the White House communications office. Short was also a good friend of Sean Spicer, who was terminated of his role as Press Secretary earlier this week.

It seems as if Donald Trump really is cleaning house, or as his supporters call it: #DrainingTheSwamp.

Short originally worked for Trump during the 2016 Presidential campaign, but quit after the Access Hollywood tape came out. Politico confirms this report, stating that Short walked away from the campaign leaving his laptop behind, only to return early January at the request of the Republican National Commitee (RNC) allies in the White House.

Multiple White House officials have confirmed Short's involvement with leaking classified documents, and worked closely with now former White House deputy chief of staff Katie Walsh. Walsh, a RNC wing official, was terminated earlier this year for her own leaking.

“He was scorned by many of his colleagues for quitting the Trump campaign, only to rejoin as a White House staffer because of Priebus,” Palmeri wrote of Short. “In a story often retold by campaign staffers, they arrived at Trump Tower one morning, months before the election, to see Short’s computer left open on his otherwise empty desk. He had quit the campaign that day and never returned. The next time he was seen by former campaign staffers was in January on their first day in the White House, where some were stunned to learn that they were going to have to work alongside him or for some of the press assistants subordinate to him.”  

Multiple White House sources have confirmed Short has been fired, however, he himself says he does not believe it, telling CNN that he hasn't been told anything.


“No one has told me anything and the entire premise is false,” Short told CNN.
Palermi also reports that Short denies he left the campaign, as he says he just went back to worth with the RNC.
But most don't think President Trump buys it.

In multiple interviews over the weekend, Scaramucci said he was planning to fire Short in the upcoming days. In one interview, Scaramucci said those responsible for the leaks will be "fired".
