AUDIO: Anthony Scaramucci's Phone Call to New Yorker's Ryan Lizza

Anthony Scaramucci's expletive-ridden, late-night phone call to New Yorker reporter Ryan Lizza ultimately led to his quick ouster as White House communications director.

In the original phone conversation, which was first reported last week, Scaramucci called former White House chief of staff Reince Priebus a "fucking paranoid schizophrenic".

In order to take the job in the Trump administration and avoid a conflict of interest, Scaramucci had to sell his stake in Skybridge Capital, the hedge fund he founded. Individuals familiar with Mueller's probe told CNN that investigators have "seized on Trump and his associates' financial ties to Russian Federation as one of the most fertile avenues for moving their probe forward".

Miller's comment prompted ridicule on social media and angry responses from immigrant rights advocates, although according to reports, it was well received in the White House and didn't go unnoticed by Trump himself. "We wish him all the best".

It's also not clear why the New Yorker didn't simply publish the entire conversation (at least the on-the-record parts). It wasn't long thereafter that both Priebus and Scaramucci were no longer in their White House jobs, with Priebus being replaced by General John Kelly, who is widely perceived as having then ousted Scaramucci.

Anyway on 21 July, President Trump named Wall Street financier, Anthony Scaramucci his new communications director and on 31 July, he was the given the boot.

Scaramucci replied: "You know what you did".

He named the resulting audio file "insane Scaramucci interview". "I don't know - if you want to shock me, catch him on video governing in New Jersey".

White House senior policy adviser Stephen Miller is being considered for an elevated communications role.

Scaramucci tweeted: "I sometimes use colorful language".
