The Washington Post, an anti-Trump paper that has reported several fallacious reports on the president this year, leaked another tip from a White House insider on Thursday.
According to the leaker Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci will present a diagram to President Trump on Friday showing Reince Priebus’s leaks to the press.

This comes after another leaker released information on Wednesday about President Trump’s dinner with Sean Hannity, Anthony Scaramucci and former FOX News executive Bill Shine.
The Washington Post reported:
Scaramucci took over the communications job on Wednesday, even though he was not supposed to start until Aug. 15 — a move that a White House official said was designed to thwart any attempt by Priebus to derail Scaramucci yet again.
Scaramucci and his allies are compiling a diagram of the news organizations that they suspect received leaked information from Priebus, and they plan to present it to the president on Friday, according to a White House official who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss the secret plan of attack.
“If Reince wants to explain that he’s not a leaker, let him do that,” Scaramucci said in an interview with CNN early Thursday morning.
On Fox News that same morning, Kellyanne Conway, a counselor to the president, described the leaks that Scaramucci was ranting about as “people using the press to shiv each other in the ribs.”
As all of this was playing out, few came to Priebus’s defense. House Speaker Paul D. Ryan, a longtime friend and fellow Republican from Wisconsin, said at a news conference on Thursday that “Reince is doing a fantastic job at the White House, and I believe he has the president’s confidence.”
