CNN's Wolf Blitzer asked Reince Priebus point blank Friday night if he was the leaker in the White House.

"Are you the leaker in the White House?" Blizter asked.

"That's ridiculous, Wolf. Come on, give me a break!" Priebus responded. "I'm not gonna get into [Scaramucci's] accusations --."

"Why not?" Blitzer said. "Why not respond to him?"
PRIEBUS: Because I'm not going to because it doesn't honor the president. I'm going to honor the president every day. I'm going to honor his agenda and I'm going to honor our country, and I'm not going to get into all of this personal stuff. So --

BLITZER: Is there a leaking problem in the White House based on what you've seen?

PRIEBUS: Yes, I think that General Kelly should see if he could get to the bottom of it and figure it out. But obviously unnamed sources are something that's been problematic and I wish him well and I'm going to try to help him. But obviously that's going to be on his plate and I hope he can get to the bottom of it.

BLITZER: Because Scaramucci is suggesting the FBI should get involved in that investigation. Do you agree with him on that?

PRIEBUS: I'm not going to respond to that. Look, this is about the president, Wolf. I have answered your questions. I support his decision to hire John Kelly, and I'm looking forward to the future.
Note: he did not outright deny it. As far as denials go, I'd say it was quite weak.
