RUMBLINGS: Scaramucci Ally Accuses Reince Priebus of Having a Mistress (UPDATE—AUTHOR PULLS REPORT)
GOP operative Arthur Schwartz has deleted his tweets where he accused Reince Priebus of having a mistress.
“I deleted my tweets re
@Reince & apologized to him. Pretty sure he’s not accepting my apology. Can’t blame him. I’m ashamed of what I said,” tweeted Schwartz.
Schwartz continued, “.
@Reince is a better man than me; he accepted my apology. I did something stupid and I’m embarrassed. Keep the hits coming – I deserve it.”
The saga between White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci and former Chief of Staff Reince Priebus might not be over just yet.
In a large Twitter rant Sunday morning, GOP operative Arthur Schwartz and friend of Scaramucci, unloaded on Priebus, accusing the former Trump White House official of having a mistress.
Arthur Schwartz, a friend of Anthony Scaramucci who has been referred to as his publicist, warned Reince Priebus that he would “start dropping oppo” on the former White House chief of staff, adding “Mistress much?” in a Sunday morning tweet:
The tweet was in response to a HuffPost story, which Schwartz presumably believes was sourced from Reince, that detailed Priebus’s concerns with Scaramucci’s business dealings.
Schwartz added that he would be happy to start “trashing [Priebus] in the press” again:
The tweets were quickly noticed by CNN’s Jake Tapper, who retweeted them noting they came from Scaramucci’s publicist. Schwartz has been quoted in a number of Fox News and New York Post stories as a representative of the now-White House communications director.
The Twitter tirade ended with Schwartz tweeting a screen shot of a text message conversation between himself and reporter Dana Schuster, where he explained to the New York Post journalist that he is not working for Scaramucci in any official capacity.
