Scaramucci, aka “The Mooch,” has been on the job just six days, and is the subject of numerous headlines across the nation as he called out Priebus on live TV, suggesting he is behind embarrassing White House leaks.

“If Reince wants to explain that he's not a leaker — let him do that,” he said Thursday on CNN’s New Day. “But let me tell you about myself. I'm a straight shooter and I'll go right to the heart of the matter."

"When I put out a tweet and I put Reince's name in a tweet, they're all making the assumption that it's him because journalists know who the leakers are,” he added.

Scaramucci said that he and Trump are friends and continued to defend him on CNN.

"I don't like the activity going on in the White House," Scaramucci said. "I don't like what they're doing to my friend. I don't like what they're doing to the President of the United States or their fellow colleagues in the West Wing."

CBS White House Correspondent Margaret Brennan spoke to Inside Edition about the new man in town.

“He's the loudest voice in the White House right now,” she said. "A lot of his mannerisms, the way he says things, he is forceful. In many ways, he mimics the language the president uses himself."
