The White House communications director said the president is more concerned with intelligence leaks than political leaks.
White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci said on CNN’s “New Day” on Thursday that intelligence leakers “would have been hung” a century-and-a-half ago.
“As the president would say in his own words, the White House leakers are small potatoes,” Scaramucci said.
“The White House leaks are small potatoes relative to things that are going on with leaking things about Syria or North Korea or leaking things about Iraq,” he continued. “Those are the types of leaks that are so treasonous that 150 years ago, people actually would have been hung for those leaks.”
Leaks have rocked the Trump administration since its start in January, and the president brought in Scaramucci in a White House shake-up last week in an effort to bring stability to the administration.
