It was not immediately clear whether Scaramucci would depart the White House entirely or be assigned to a different role within the administration. The White House communications shop did not immediately respond to requests for comment on this story. Neither did Scaramucci.
“Anthony Scaramucci will be leaving his role as White House Communications Director,” said Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders in a statement. “Mr. Scaramucci felt it was best to give Chief of Staff John Kelly a clean slate and the ability to build his own team. We wish him all the best.”
