Host of top White House aides deny they wrote article damning Trump

Trump Wanted Assad Assassinated But Mattis Ignored Him Says Book Quoting Top Aides

White House officials, members of Congress and reporters remained fixated Thursday on the identity of a senior administration official who wrote an anonymous op-ed in the New York Times describing a "quiet resistance" inside the Trump administration that actively blocks President Donald Trump's agenda.

Under that theory, Michael Socolow, a communications professor at the University of ME, outlined a six-point argument on Twitter, including that Coats publicly laughed at Trump when he was told the US president wanted to invite Vladimir Putin to the White House. "The narrative that I've picked up, in not only this book but the opinion editorials, suggests that things are happening in spite of the president's leadership, and nothing could be further from the truth".

"Who would you believe more", Tuchman pressed, "a guy like Bob Woodward or a person like the president of the United States - if you had to put money on it? I would say that maybe half of those are key people".

Swift denials followed from others in the Trump administration.

"I am not author of the anonymous NY Times op-ed", Linda tweeted.

Gary Cohn, Trump's former top economic adviser who subsequently quit, by Woodward's account stole a letter off the president's desk to avoid him canceling a trade agreement with strategic ally South Korea.

However, Trump, soon after publication of the report denied such a move and said Mattis is doing a fantastic job.

Gutfeld said Trump is succeeding on the substantive issues, so his critics focus on his style. And quite frankly, if there was a person in the White House or the administration who wanted to tell me what's in that op-ed piece, I would say, 'Okay, name me who was there.

I worked at The New York Times for most of my career.

The anonymous 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".

For those unaware, the article published on Wednesday was allegedly written by a senior official in Trump's administration and claims members of his staff are actively working to undermine his actions when officials believe they may pose a risk to national security.

"Given the instability many witnessed, there were early whispers within the Cabinet of invoking the 25th Amendment, which would start a complex process for removing the president".

The assertions in the column were largely in line with complaints about Trump's behavior that have repeatedly been raised by various administration officials, often speaking on the condition of anonymity.

"I think it's a legitimate article to publish anonymously", he said.
