In an exclusive statement obtained by The Daily Caller, a White House official made claims on Monday that Kellyanne Conway, counselor to President Donald Trump, could be replacing former communications director Anthony Scaramucci.

The Daily Caller reached out to Conway's camp for a statement, but as of the time of this posting, they did not respond.

Monday saw Scaramucci's unceremonious White House departure, just a week after being named communications director.

News of the latest White House staff shake up came on the same day that former Department of Homeland Security Secretary Gen. John Kelly began his tenure as White House chief of staff.

Former Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus resigned as White House chief of staff Friday after just six months on the job.

The New York Times reported that the decision to remove Scaramucci as communications director came at Kelly’s request. President Donald Trump was reported to have given Kelly “full authority” upon him assuming the reins of day-to-day operations at the White House.

Scaramucci went on a profanity-laced tirade late last week during an interview with the New Yorker’s Ryan Lizza. Scaramucci also vowed to get to the bottom of White House leaks, saying that he would fire everyone in the White House communications shop, with the exception of press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, if he had to.
