Anonymous peeks behind the White House curtain

Anonymous peeks behind the White House curtain

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) tore into President Donald Trump on Thursday for his reaction to an anonymous New York Times op-ed from within his administration.

Everyone, including President Donald Trump, wants to know who wrote the bombshell op-ed published by the New York Times.

The article had referred to the anonymous author as only a senior administration official. "[Donald Trump] has a clear governing vision for the country and his record of results is remarkable".

U.S. President Donald Trump walks on the South Lawn heading for the Marine One at the White House in Washington D.C., the United States, on September 6, 2018.

The director of national intelligence, Dan Coats, released a statement denying that he or his top deputy wrote the piece.

Let's just hope this saga doesn't end like this.

Shahid Kapoor and Mira Rajput welcome baby boy
Shahid Kapoor's Mausam co-star Sonam Kapoor wished new parents Shahid and Mira Rajput in the sweetest way possible. Bollywood actor Shahid Kapoor and Mira Rajput were blessed with their second child, a baby boy, on Wednesday.

The column has set off a wild guessing game on the author's identity.

The Times piece, published on September 5, , has sparked the president's ire, leading him to tweet in all caps "TREASON?" and calling the author "GUTLESS".

"The @nytimes should be ashamed and so should the person who wrote the false, illogical, and gutless op-ed", Mr Pence's spokesman Jarrod Agen said on Twitter.

The newspaper also reported that people close to Trump floated another option - forcing senior officials to sign sworn affidavits that could be used in court if necessary. It may be a deep state person.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, during a trip to India, told reporters "it's not mine", and denounced the Times for publishing the anonymous article that indicates Trump may be facing the prospect of revolt within his own administration.

Advisers to President Donald Trump entertained the idea, briefly discussing it among themselves, according to the Times.

He also says the timing of the op-ed's publication shouldn't be lost and encourages the President to stay focused on the midterm elections.

On Twitter, Mr Trump said: "The Deep State and the Left, and their vehicle, the Fake News Media, are going insane - & they don't know what to do".

White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders separately called on the individual to resign.

The official described a "resistance" inside the administration and said aides were working to thwart the president's decisions when they deemed them misguided or potentially harmful to the nation.

Both Trump and his critics have called for the op-ed writer to go public.

It is sad more than anything else that the United States has come to where you have again. if it is what it's purported to be, it is sad that you have someone who would make that choice, he said.
