Anthony Scaramucci's time in the White House could be a movie

Former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci seen in Brentwood New York

Ousted White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci on Wednesday attacked the journalist whose interview may have cost "The Mooch" his job.

With Lizza playing Tripp's role, some Twitter users noted that Scaramucci would be the Lewinsky in this situation.

After Lizza's initial report, Scaramucci said he "made a mistake in trusting a reporter", and that the phone call was "l$3 egally" on the record, though in "spirit", "it was off." "People know. And he is up at night not being able to live with himself".

Tripp was a White House staffer in the late '90s who secretly recorded conversations she had with her friend and colleague Monica Lewinsky about Lewinsky's admitted sexual relationship with President Bill Clinton.

Scaramucci seems to be connecting Tripp's wiretapping espionage to Lizza's explosive New Yorker article from late July.


Tripp - unbeknownst to Lewinsky - taped their conversations and, to get out of a wiretape charge, handed the recordings over to Independent Counsel Kenneth Starr.

This will mark Scaramucci's first televised interviews since leaving his Washington DC gig.

Scaramucci, in a follow-up tweet, said Lizza "absolutely taped the call without my permission".

Lizza published the contents of a phone call he had with Scaramucci last month shortly before the former communications director resigned.

Scaramucci left the White House after Lizza published their conversation - in which the former investor used obscene terms to describe Reince Priebus and Stephen Bannon.
