In light of the leak of my financial disclosure info which is a felony. I will be contacting @FBI and the @TheJusticeDept #swamp @Reince45— Anthony Scaramucci (@Scaramucci) July 27, 2017
This is what happens when people who are not lawyers try to play one in the White House.

Here’s a list of the ones that anyone can access. Oh, and here’s Spicer’s. See? Public information. pic.twitter.com/FIOxK8quyt— Mike Rundle (@flyosity) July 27, 2017
Josh Marshall notes Trump is exposing the rot in our system; he says this without naming names, and without praising Trump, but blaming him. Mooch is not exactly an example of rot so much as of the kind of person Trump brings into government. Pruett, Perry, and DeVos are three other examples.
The worst part is the number of people who will think, because Scaramucci said it, it must be true. The same people who think, so long as there is no video of Trump handing a bulging bag with a huge dollar sign on it to a person who looks like a Russian (was it a bear? or a Russian? Read "The Circus of Dr. Lao" to find out), there is no crime. We don' need no steenken' evidence! We need proof!
Those are the people who think financial disclosure forms can be "leaked." Heaven help us, we've got a lot of them.
Adding: "Mooch" doesn't seem to understand the fish bowl he now works in:
“What I’m upset about is the process — and the junk pool, the dirty pool — in terms of the way this stuff is being done,” Scaramucci said. “I can’t have a couple of friends up from Fox & Friends, and Sean Hannity, who’s one of my closest friends, to dinner with the president and his first lady without it being leaked in seven minutes.”How does he not understand that everything the President does is public information, unless it is specifically classified as a matter of law?
And the hits just keep on coming:
FYI @Woellert went on radio a few minutes ago and said where document came from: She asked Ex-Im and it was given in public disclosure.— Josh Dawsey (@jdawsey1) July 27, 2017
The clowns being in charge has stopped being amusing. ("Woellert" is Lorraine Woellert, who reported the financial information on "Mooch" in Politico.)
