Scaramucci Slams New Yorker Reporter Who Secretly Recorded His Phone Call in Epic Tweetstorm

Former White House Communications Director, Anthony Scaramucci slammed The New Yorker’s Ryan Lizza on Wednesday in a mini tweetstorm.

As previously reported, the New Yorker released audio of the infamous phone call between reporter Ryan Lizza and then White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci. Sarah Huckabee Sanders confirmed that Scaramucci was fired after his interview with The New Yorker.

Scaramucci fired off a mini tweetstorm Wednesday evening attacking The New Yorker reporter who outed his private, profanity-laced tirade to the press which ultimately led to his firing, “Ryan Lizza is the Linda Tripp of 2017. People know. And he is up at night not being able to live with himself,” Scaramucci said in the first tweet.

Scaramucci was referring to Linda Tripp who violated privacy by secretly recording Bill Clinton’s mistress and White House intern, Monica Lewinsky back in the 90’s. The recorded conversations with Monica Lewinsky snowballed into a huge controversy and ultimately led to Lewinsky and Bill Clinton appearing before a Washington D.C. grand jury.

In the second tweet when asked if Lizza recorded him without his permission, Scaramucci confirmed it saying, ‘Yes. He absolutely taped the call without my permission’ and called him a lowlife.

Does this mean Scaramucci may be pursuing this legally? Time will only tell.
