Melania Trump: Deep State Op-ed Author 'Sabotaging' the Country

White House aides searching for the "senior administration official" who wrote the controversial opinion piece are said to have narrowed it down to a handful of names. Impeachment - not "frenzy, mutiny and rumors" - is the antidote to Trump's criminal unfitness for public service, he added.

"You are not protecting this country, you are sabotaging it with your cowardly actions", she wrote.

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

A single mention of the word "lodestar" in the op-ed prompted theories that the senior official in question was Vice President Mike Pence, who used the term in previous speeches.

Buzzfeed News reported that Pompeo, the U.S. Secretary of State, had denied writing the piece.

A "very small number of people within the Times who know this person's identity", Dao reportedly said, adding that the company had spoken with the senior official directly.

The Times piece called some of Trump's decisions "half-baked, ill-informed and occasionally reckless".

"To those who believe that this man is a fool, that it's only the people around him that keep his safe, you don't know what you're talking about", Graham said.

Trump describes the editorial as "gutless".

Ryan said he isn't anxious about President Donald Trump's public threats or inclinations toward shutting down the government in an effort to secure funding for his border wall.

"The dilemma - which he does not fully grasp - is that numerous senior officials in his own administration are working diligently from within to frustrate parts of his agenda and his worst inclinations", the official wrote.

The anonymous New York Times column published Wednesday described a culture of "quiet resistance" toward the president within the White House, with aides subtly ignoring or blocking his decisions when they believe him to be acting dangerously.

What did Defense Secretary Mattis say?

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

"The media's wild obsession with the identity of the anonymous coward is recklessly tarnishing the reputation of thousands of great Americans who proudly serve our country and work for President Trump", she wrote. The editorial section, which is separate from the news section, would not have published an anonymous op-ed without the consent of the publisher and a consensus among editorial page editors that the views expressed about President Trump needed to be heard.

He called it "a disgrace" and the writer "gutless" during an event with sheriffs at the White House on Wednesday afternoon. It's like there's a sign that says 'In case of emergency, break glass, ' but these guys are like, 'I mean we could break the glass, but then there'd be glass everywhere.

Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats said in a statement: "Speculation that The New York Times op-ed was written by me or my principal deputy is patently false". The first lady, Melania Trump, also condemned the author and called on the individual to come forward.

Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.), an outspoken critic of Trump, said the account would have no effect on either party, because voters already knew the nature of the president's temperament: "I think people inside the White House have understood the situation from Day One". But some also expressed a desire to pull together and counter those who want to exacerbate the sense of mistrust.
