The New York Daily News reports:
The Mooch is living in the past. Ex-White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci blasted The New Yorker’s Ryan Lizza Wednesday night for recording their now-infamous phone interview.
“@RyanLizza is the Linda Tripp of 2017. People know. And he is up at night not being able to live with himself,” he tweeted. The “Linda Tripp” mention refers to when Tripp, a former Pentagon employee, exposed then-White House intern Monica Lewinsky’s affair with former President Bill Clinton in the 1990s through phone conversations she secretly recorded.
The reporter seemingly responded, retweeting an impeccably timed tweet from the New Yorker urging followers to listen to the recorded conversation. New York and Washington D.C. are “one-party consent” jurisdictions, which means that it is legal for anyone on a phone call to record the conversation.
.@RyanLizza is the Linda Tripp of 2017. People know. And he is up at night not being able to live with himself.

Are you saying that you tried to give him a blowjob?

He did not think this analogy through.

Tripp taped Lewinsky without her knowledge because she hated Clinton. Lizza taped you because that’s what reporters do, Doofus.

Wait does this mean Monica was Clinton’s Communications Director?
P.S. Lewinsky had a more professional & longer WH career.
