Anthony Scaramucci: 'We have a very, very good idea of who the leakers are'

Newly appointed Trump communications director Anthony Scaramucci said Thursday he has a "very, very good idea" who the senior leakers are in the White House.

Calling in to CNN on Thursday morning, Scaramucci also said if White House chief of staff Reince Priebus "wants to explain that he's not a leaker, let him do that."

"I'm a straight shooter and I'll go right to the heart of the matter," he added.

The latest leak came late Wednesday when Politico reported findings from the former hedge fund star's disclosure, noting the 53-year-old had earned $4.9 million from his ownership stake in SkyBridge Capital and more than $5 million in salary between January 2016 and the end of June this year.

"[Priebus] is the chief of staff. He's responsible for understanding and uncovering [leaks] and helping me do that in the White House, which is why I put that tweet out last night," Scaramucci told CNN.

In a tweet late Wednesday, Scaramucci wrote, "In light of the leak of my financial disclosure info which is a felony. I will be contacting @FBI and the @TheJusticeDept #swamp @Reince45."
