    White House Communications Director and the US President are confident which senior staff members are leaking information to the press from the White House.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci said Thursday that he and President Donald Trump know which senior staff members are leaking information to the press from the White House.

    "[T]he President and I would like to tell everybody we have a very, very good idea of who the leakers are, who the senior leakers are in the White House," Scaramucci stated in an interview with CNN.

    In a Twitter message about leaks earlier on Thursday, Scaramucci copied White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus. He noted in the interview, however, that the message was not meant as a call for the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to investigate Priebus.

    On Tuesday, Scaramucci told reporters that he would fire everyone in the press office if such a step is necessary to stop leaks to the media.

    The Washington Post reported on Tuesday that US Attorney General Jeff Sessions intends to launch a probe into leaks of classified information to the press.
