Scaramucci: White house plotters seeking Trump exit

From BBC - August 13, 2017

There are people in Washington DC working against President Donald Trump, the former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci has said.

He said there were "elements" within the White House trying to eject Mr Trump, and he had "named some names".

Mr Scaramucci spoke to ABC News for the first time since being sacked last month - after just 10 days in office.

It followed a phone recording in which he strongly attacked then-White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus.

He also directed profanity-laced insults at Chief Strategist Steve Bannon.

Mr Scaramucci said he had thought the interview was off the record, and he had "paid the consequences for that conversation".
