For if Scaramucci thinks Lizza is the "Linda Tripp of 2017", does that mean he's Monica?

Tripp had worked in both the Bush 41 and Clinton White House, and then worked in the Pentagon alongside Lewinsky when the former White House intern opened up to her about her affair with Bill Clinton.

Trump abruptly fired Scaramucci after only 10 days in the White House, reportedly at the urging of new chief of staff John Kelly just days after Lizza published Scaramucci's comments.

Lizza published the New Yorker article after a phone call with Scaramucci, wherein the former White House communications director unleashed a profanity-ridden rant against leaks and other members of the Trump administration. Tripp, a friend of Lewinsky's at the time, turned the 20 hours of tapes over to special prosecutor Kenneth Starr.

Badly in need of a well-pitched game from a starter, Kansas City (57-56) will call on Jason Hammel (5-9, 4.73). Louis had an 11-3 win on Monday and then followed it up with a 10-3 victory last night.

Washington D.C.is what is called a "single party consent" jurisdiction when it comes to recording phone calls, as are 38 of 50 states, including Virginia and NY. The scandal ultimately led to Clinton's impeachment for perjury and obstruction of justice, though he was ultimately acquitted in the Senate. Scaramucci was sacked a few days later on July 31 by new White House Chief of Staff John Kelly.

When someone asked if Scaramucci was accusing the reported of taping the call without permission, he replied in the affirmative. After the conversation was published, Scaramucci resigned from his post within ten days of assuming the office.

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

TMZ reports that a Hollywood producer has been in touch with the former White House communications director, wanting to make either a film or a television series.
