Anonymous NY Times letter announces treason within the Trump White House, called ‘cowardly’ and praised by media

An “Anonymous” op-ed published in the New York Times has “shaken Washington to its core with revelations from within Trump’s own White House,” according to the media hysterics.

The piece is titled I Am Part of the Resistance Inside the Trump Administration” and begins “I work for the president but like-minded colleagues and I have vowed to thwart parts of his agenda and his worst inclinations.”

“The dilemma — which he does not fully grasp — is that many of the senior officials in his own administration are working diligently from within to frustrate parts of his agenda and his worst inclinations,” the letter says. “I would know. I am one of them…”

The op-ed seems to confirm other new reports of sabotage, such as one claiming former economic adviser Gary Cohn would literally take papers from Trump’s desk before he could sign them out of a fear that the president would pull the United States out of essential trade agreements and make other rash decisions that could hurt the economy.

“Some of his aides have been cast as villains by the media. But in private, they have gone to great lengths to keep bad decisions contained to the West Wing, though they are clearly not always successful,” the op-ed claims.

Republican David Frum calls the letter “cowardly” and says it is more likely to reinforce Trump’s paranoia and other bad tendencies rather than cause him to reform.

If the president’s closest advisers believe that he is morally and intellectually unfit for his high office, they have a duty to do their utmost to remove him from it, by the lawful means at hand,” Frum writes.

“That duty may be risky to their careers in government or afterward. But on their first day at work, they swore an oath to defend the Constitution—and there were no ‘riskiness’ exemptions in the text of that oath.”
Trump attacked The Times and the op-ed’s anonymous author, whom he described as someone “who’s failing and probably here for all the wrong reasons.”

“Now, and The New York Times is failing,” Trump said. “If I weren’t here, I’d believe The New York Times probably wouldn’t even exist. And someday, when I’m not president … The New York Times and CNN and all of these phony media outlets will be out of business, folks.

“They’ll be out of business because there will be nothing to write and there will be nothing of interest,” Trump said.

The move is being embraced by the press and the left, from one writer: “Real courage requires real risk. In this case, the risk is professional. People say they get into politics to serve their country, not their careers. And the best way to do that is by leading with honesty, integrity and by putting their own reputations on the line to save the reputation of the country they love.”

Michael Knowles at The Daily Wire writes:

The only silver lining in this scenario is irrefutable validation of President Trump’s claim that a “deep state” of bureaucrats and entrenched Washington interests is working to geld our democratic process.

Knowles adds that it could be a troll before returning his aim on the The Times:

The mere fact that the Times stooped so low as to publish so serious an allegation anonymously shatters whatever patina of journalistic integrity the paper once possessed.

If this was in the Obama administration, this individual would be called a “racist war criminal” trying to undermine the President’s agenda. When it’s Trump, they are Deep Throat.
