White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci took to Twitter late Wednesday evening to complain about the leaking of his financial disclosures to Politico for a story about his earnings at an investment firm he has an ownership stake in. In that tweet, he seemed to implicate White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus in the leak.
In light of the leak of my financial disclosure info which is a felony. I will be contacting @FBI and the @TheJusticeDept #swamp @Reince45

Obviously, there was a lot of speculation right away that Scaramucci was directly accusing Priebus. Well, that speculation is now over, per The New Yorkers Ryan Lizza:
In case there's any ambiguity in his tweet I can confirm that Scaramucci wants the FBI to investigate Reince for leaking
The Department of Justice released a statement after Scaramuccis appearance on Fox News Hannity where he complained about leaks:

No leak. Mooch trying to take out RP.
.can pence save him..dont know..he may not even want to save him.
the drain is finally opening...keep going
WOW! Things are heating up!
The music has stopped and RP is the one left standing.
Frankly, from the get-go, I’ve never trusted Rinse and Repeat! He was anti-Trump in the beginning, only to change his tune. He’s, IMHO, been a big part of the problems President Trump is having.
Does he have reason to investigate him other than the leak he accused him of that turned out to be public disclosure?
How do you know there was ‘No leak’?
Besides, Priebus didn't leak anything. Scaramucci's financial disclosure forms are public records. All Politico had to do was ask for them.
If there is no leak, then Mooch himself is just engaging in typical swamp-dweller activities, isn't he?
I don’t like the fact that Rinse and Lyin Paul Ryan are closerthanthis.
Maybe it was one way for Trump to ‘keep your enemies closer’.
Keep reading. This went down last night. I knew people wouldnt know the whole story this morning because it was a middle of the night drama.
Info is available upon request and scarmucci didnt know it. He is getting roasted on twitter over it.
Reince is a weasel, but it appears that Scaramucci may be firing on Republicans exclusively. Am I mistaken? Has he gone after any of the holdovers by name like he has Republicans??
The Rinse Priapus appointment was a mistake from the start.
It was a Machiavelli plot to damage RP that blew up because mooch didnt know the law.
Just fire RP instead of this nonsense...
Lock him up.
Does President Trump know that all this people serve at his pleasure?
Fire Sessions, Preibus, Tillerson, and McMaster like he clearly wants to do. Make Sacramucci chief of staff. And let’s go from there.
What purpose does weeks of this drama serve?
Has Scaramucci discussed a single policy in public yet? He’s discussed Sessions being a jerk and Preibus being a leaker and Trump have an Uncle Rico like ability at football.
I think he has briefly touched on the wall. But anything else?
Former 15 year employee says trump doesnt like to fire..just makes your life hell until you resign. Cant remember her name
I disagree...He was the strongest voice at the convention.
