My guess is that Priebus and Bannon have both been behind leaks and probably Kushner as well. This smells like a Bannon leak to embarrass Priebus.

Sounds like the leakers didn't know all that.
Or is it you who have it backwards?
At a gaggle with reporters late Tuesday morning, Scaramucci specifically pointed to the report of Short’s possible firing as a reason that leaks need to stop — even though he was reportedly the one who’d told Politico that Short would be fired.
I think Trump wants to hire extremely competent and smart people, those on your list fit that bill...who else do you think he should hire?

According to a so-called whistleblower complaint made public on Tuesday, OneWest violated the 2009 Home Affordable Modification Program (HAMP) by routinely tacking on thousands of dollars of debt to borrowers' principal balances, without providing required disclosures of terms such as payment amounts, interest rates, finance charges and late payment policies.
The memo obtained by The Intercept alleges that OneWest rushed delinquent homeowners out of their homes by violating notice and waiting period statutes, illegally backdated key documents, and effectively gamed foreclosure auctions.
Joseph Otting, the former chief executive of Pasadena’s OneWest Bank whom Trump nominated Tuesday to be the next comptroller of the currency, has claimed to be a graduate of the School of Credit and Financial Management at Dartmouth.
“Joseph Otting is not a Dartmouth graduate,” Diana Lawrence, the college’s associate vice president for communications, said Saturday. “Dartmouth does not have a school of credit and financial management.”
The degree was included in a short biography of Otting released by the White House on Monday when Trump announced his intention to nominate Otting.

The alleged leaker in the OP doesn't appear to be a leaker of classified information.
If he were, wouldn't he have been arrested and facing prosecution like the young NSA contractor?
