WASHINGTON (SINCLAIR BROADCAST GROUP) -- In a move some say contributed to ending his White House career, former Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci made an accusatory, expletive-laced and threatening call to The New Yorker's Washington correspondent Ryan Lizza on July 26.

During their late-night (and on-the-record) conversation, the wealthy New Yorker demanded to know the identity of Lizza's sources, insulted White House mainstays like former Chief of Staff Reince Priebus, and laid out plans to "fire" all members of the communications staff.

Less than a week later, President Donald Trump removed Scaramucci from his position.

The New Yorker published the audio from the controversial call in a podcast Thursday.
