Trump calls for Justice Department to investigate author of Times op-ed

A High-Level

A High-Level "Resistance" Mole Inside the Trump Administration Just Published an Anonymous New York Times Op-Ed

The author, claiming to be part of the "resistance" to Trump "working diligently from within" his administration, said: "Many Trump appointees have vowed to do what we can to preserve our democratic institutions while thwarting Mr. Trump's more misguided impulses until he is out of office".

"He goes into a high level meeting concerning China or Russian Federation or North Korea or something, I don't want him in those meetings", he said.

It is also a contrast to the description in Watergate reporter Bob Woodward's upcoming book, which quotes chief of staff John Kelly as saying the Trump White House is "crazytown" with a president who has "gone off the rails".

"People are suggesting it", Trump said Friday, steering clear of explicitly endorsing the proposal.

It said "unsung heroes" were moderating the president's "erratic behaviour" and that "the root of the problem is the president's amorality".

"But what was said in there is a reflection of what we hear from many Republicans around the country - not in Congress", she said.

"They are the only ones complicit in this deceitful act", she said.

Trump also said he was looking into potentially taking legal action against what he calls the "Failing New York Times", citing concerns about "national security".




Pompeo said during a trip to India that he was not the author and condemned the Times for publishing the article, while Pentagon spokeswoman Dana White said Defense Secretary James Mattis did not write it.

With the New York Times not revealing the source, Donald Trump apparently plans to do the detective work himself, Dworkin reported.

They lined up to deny writing an incendiary New York Times opinion piece that was purportedly submitted by a member of an administration "resistance" movement straining to thwart Trump's most risky impulses.

"Find the departments that have purged all Trump supporters from those departments", Caputo told CBN News.

On Wednesday, the president responded to the Times op-ed with a simple tweet: "TREASON?".

Haley goes on to call the anonymous official's decision to publish the piece "dangerous", and responsible for "many problems" within the administration including spreading distrust among staffers.

However, the writer says no one wants to cause a constitutional crisis. "So we will do what we can to steer the administration in the right direction until - one way or another - it's over".

The White House has a list of 12 people whom they believe could have anonymously penned the explosive New York Times op-ed, an outside adviser told the newspaper Thursday night. The paper says the author requested anonymity and that this was essential to deliver an "important perspective" to its reader.
