Monica Lewinsky Reacts to Scaramucci Comparing Reporter to the Lewinsky Scandal

10 Août 2017

Former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci called the New Yorker reporter who published his infamous rant last month that led to his resignation the "Linda Tripp of 2017".

Scaramucci insulted White House aides using vulgar language during the interview with Lizza.

In his tweet, he likened Lizza to Linda Tripp - who tipped off the investigation into the Clinton-Lewinsky sex scandal. "People know. And he is up at night not being able to live with himself", he tweeted.

Tripp surreptitiously recorded phone calls with Lewinsky as the young staffer described her affair with Clinton.

The law in Scaramucci's home state of NY is similar.

Randolph was one of two men arrested Thursday, with the other being an ex-convict booked for being in possession of a firearm. Randolph was arrested for marijuana possession with intent to sell, according to the Los Angeles Sheriff's Department.

Nonetheless, Scaramucci says his trust was betrayed.

This will mark Scaramucci's first televised interviews since leaving his Washington DC gig. Scaramucci also accused Lizza of recording their conversation-which he initiated-without asking permission.

Lewinsky later responded to Scaramucci's comments by retweeting his initial tweet with a red, flushed-cheek emoji. And, profanity aside, it didn't help matters that Scaramucci-who, again, had just been hired as the White House communications director-didn't seem to understand that the conversation wasn't off the record.

That journalist, the New Yorker's Ryan Lizza, recorded Scaramucci as he trashed his colleagues - including accusing chief strategist Steve Bannon of a particularly inventive feat of onanism - and subsequently published the shocking transcript and tape.
