Senior White House members fooled by email prankster

02 Agosto 2017

The impostor also pretended to be former White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus and wrote to Scaramucci the day after Priebus was given the sack.

"We're not going to change the rules of the Senate because he tells us to", Graham said.

Who will replace him?

Acknowledging the breach, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said, "We take all cyber-related issues very seriously and are looking into these incidents further". He insisted in a morning tweet there was "No WH chaos", then followed up in the evening with a satisfied "great day at the White House".

Mr Trump Jr's statement said he and Ms Veselnitskaya "primarily discussed a programme about the adoption of Russian children". They wanted to be truthful, so their account couldn't be repudiated later if the full details emerged.

Sanders would not comment on whether Sean Spicer would stay on as press secretary, saying she was not aware of any changes.

Sanders said both Scaramucci and Kelly "came to a mutual agreement" about Scaramucci's departure. "The front-stabber has been backstabbed". "The economy is doing incredibly well, and many other things".

Instead, it encapsulated the predicament in which Trump now finds himself: embroiled in disorder and with the path to stability passing inescapably through more shakeups and turmoil.

Everything is at stake and we have everything to lose.

Scaramucci, a sharply dressed, fast-talking New Yorker who touted his ability to channel the president's own brash personality, quickly sought to establish himself as a rising power center in Trump's circle. That decision, over the objections of Priebus and Bannon, led to the resignation of Spicer and fueled Scaramucci's profane vows of vengeance against White House staffers who had opposed him or leaked to the press. The stock market first hit a record under President Barack Obama and has kept growing.

On a visit to Long Island.

Hands thrust into his pockets and a new government ID badge strung around his neck, Scaramucci watched stone-faced as Trump offered an effusive welcome to his new chief of staff, John Kelly.

No one knew quite what the fallout would be. Moscow rejects the charge it tried to swing the election in Trump's favour, and Trump denies his campaign had anything to do with such interference.

He unleashed an expletive-laden screed that lambasted the top White House officials, from Priebus, a real "paranoiac", to adviser Steve Bannon, whom Scaramucci accused of being a narcissist.

On Monday night, the Washington Post reported that President Trump dictated a misleading statement about his son's meeting.

In interviews, Scaramucci repeatedly warned Trump aides that he was launching a new effort to ferret out individuals leaking embarrassing information. That is what the American people voted for, " Lewandowski said.

Scaramucci officially held the job for five days, the shortest tenure of any communications director at the White House, according to CNN's count.

New White House Chief of Staff John Kelly listened as President Donald Trump spoke during a cabinet meeting Monday. "I think it was just playing to the police officers, trying to get a laugh".

"It bothers me a lot", the South Carolina Republican told NBC's "Today" show.

Durbin says the former Marine four-star general brings to the chief of staff job qualities the Corps is known for: discipline, loyalty and respect. He also replied to an email sent by the impostor posing as Ambassador to Russia-designate Jon Huntsman. After Putin's remarks, the State Department deemed the cutbacks "a regrettable and uncalled for act" and said officials would assess the impact and how to respond to it.

For Scaramucci, who went on a vulgar screed about his senior-most colleagues and vowed to fire his entire staff during his single stormy week on the job, Trump's appreciation for a lack of controversy may have proven ominous.
