President Trump’s new communications director said Wednesday night that he was alerting the FBI after details from his financial disclosure forms were published online.

Anthony Scaramucci condemned the financial “leak” after a report by Politico said he stands to make millions from his ownership stake in an investment firm.

“In light of the leak of my financial disclosure info which is a felony. I will be contacting @FBI and the @TheJusticeDept #swamp @Reince45,” Scaramucci tweeted.

The report said that Scaramucci earned nearly $10 million for his stake in SkyBridge Capital, which could potentially lead to conflicts of interest.

It was unclear Wednesday night why Scaramucci decided to include White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus in the damning tweet.

Preibus has reportedly been critical of Trump’s decision to hire Scaramucci.
