-- White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci is leaving his position after submitting his resignation Monday, ABC News has learned.
Sources inside the White House told ABC News that Scaramucci offered his resignation Monday morning to newly sworn-in chief of staff John Kelly, with a request to be redeployed as chief strategy officer at the Export-Import Bank, to allow Kelly to assert his leadership in the West Wing.
White House press secretary Sarah Sanders confirmed Scaramucci's departure in a statement after the news broke.
"Mr. Scaramucci felt it was best to give chief of staff John Kelly a clean slate and the ability to build his own team," the statement read.
Scaramucci's role formally began only last Wednesday, July 26.
