'Email prankster' posing as Jared Kushner, Reince Priebus tricked White House officials

The White House had a tough start to the week with the firing of communications director Anthony Scaramucci, but now it appears some top Trump officials -- including Scaramucci -- were conned by an "email prankster" from Britain.

CNN obtained an email from the prankster where he posed as Jared Kushner talking to Homeland Security adviser Tom Bossert.

It reads: "Tom, we are arranging a bit of a soirée towards the end of August. It would be great if you could make it, I promise food of at least comparable quality to that which we ate in Iraq. Should be a great evening."

To which Bossert replied: "Thanks, Jared. With a promise like that, I can't refuse," and proceeded to give the fake Kushner his personal email.

The prankster also got in touch with the now-ousted Scaramucci after posing as former White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus.

The fake Priebus wrote in part of an email: "At no stage have you acted in a way that's even remotely classy, yet you believe that's the standard by which everyone should behave towards you?"

The pranksters fun came to an end after he emailed Eric Trump who realized the email was a fake and reported it to "law enforcement."

The prankster did tell CNN that his intentions were not malicious, saying, "I'm not trying to get the keys to the vault or anything like that."

The White House has confirmed to CNN that it is looking into the matter.
