Anonymous Trump official behind infamous NYT ‘resistance’ op-ed to publish a tell-all book

One year ago, an anonymous White House official published a New York Times op-ed confessing that he or she was part of the resistance inside President Donald Trump’s administration. Now that anonymous official is releasing a book, The Washington Post revealed Tuesday.

The book could also indicate who the anonymous official is, given he or she likely would have had to write the book after leaving the White House, simply due to the overwhelming demands of White House jobs.

The book, titled, “A WARNING,” is being called “an unprecedented behind-the-scenes portrait of the Trump presidency” that goes into more significant detail than the Times column had. The op-ed had a shocking portrayal of the president and those around him, including officials in the cabinet who were trying to coordinate a vote to enact the 25th Amendment, which would remove the president due to incapacitated by his own lack of mental acuity.

In The Times piece, the official called Trump “impetuous, adversarial, petty and ineffective,” and said, “his impulsiveness results in half-baked, ill-informed and occasionally reckless decisions that have to be walked back.”

Some speculated at the time the author was Gen. John Kelly, then-chief of staff to the president. Those senior officials who have left the administration but haven’t yet written a book include Kirstjen Nielsen, who fought frequently with Trump and his agenda. John Bolton also recently left the administration and Rick Perry is on his way out. Fiona Hill, who is testifying against Trump on Capitol Hill this week, also left the White House in June 2019. Bill Shine also didn’t ultimately get along well with the president and the op-ed was written not long after he started at the White House.

There’s also former White House Counsel Don McGahn, who frequently clashed with the president for telling him he couldn’t do illegal things. Kevin Hassett similarly left the White House recently, though he was always willing to defend the president on Fox News.

The identity of the person will not be identified in the book. It will be released Nov. 19.

“The author is being represented by Matt Latimer and Keith Urbahn of Javelin, the same literary agents who represented fired FBI director James B. Comey and former White House aide Cliff Sims for their memoirs from their time in the Trump administration. The book was acquired by Sean Desmond, Twelve’s publisher,” The Post reported.

“There obviously will be those who want the author to reveal themselves publicly, but there are good reasons for that not to happen,” Latimer said. “The author feels their identity is almost irrelevant because there is scarcely a sentiment expressed in this book that is not shared by numerous others who have served and continue to serve this administration at its highest levels.”

“The author could have received a seven-figure advance for writing this book,” a cagey Latimer also said. “But ‘A WARNING’ was not written for financial reasons. The author sees this as an act of conscience and of duty, which is why the author refused any advance and is donating a substantial portion of any royalties to charities that protect those seeking the truth around the world.”

2020 Election

‘Black Voices for Trump’ spokesperson wants to nullify 100,000 Black votes he says were ‘tampered with’

Published

on

Paris Dennard, a spokesperson for Black Voices for Trump, on Tuesday suggested that someone "tampered with" the votes of Black Americans in a scheme to steal the election from President Donald Trump.

During an interview on Newsmax, Dennard said that he believes that Trump will overturn the results of the election despite a determination by the General Services Administration (GSA) that Joe Biden is the president elect.

"There's no doubt that if we are able to prove our case in court looking at the states -- Arizona, looking at Georgia, looking at places like Michigan and Pennsylvania -- where we believe that there are irregularities," Dennard opined. "If we can show fraud going forward and toss out illegally cast ballots, ballots that should not have been counted, people that are dead or are not on the roles or if there's anything -- evidence that can be provided about [Dominion Election Systems] and any discrepancies there, it can overturn the certifications in these states and, thus, giving President Trump the win through the legal votes that were cast."

Trump’s ‘dysfunctional’ legal team has made ‘every kind of error’ possible trying to ‘overturn’ election: Legal experts

Published

on

Legal experts are stunned at how badly President Donald Trump's legal team has handled his legal challenges to an election loss.

Rudy Giuliani, Sidney Powell and Jenna Ellis boasted at last week's baffling news conference that they were leading an "elite strike force" of lawyers to overturn the 2020 election results, but Powell has already been fired and they keep losing their cases, reported NBC News.

"It's beyond an embarrassment," said Glenn Kirschner, a former federal prosecutor and current MSNBC legal analyst. "It's both really poor lawyering and it has the worst possible motive behind it. It's all in the name of overturning the will of American voter."

‘Sore loser’ doesn’t do justice to the epic tantrum Trump is having: columnist

Published

on

Writing in the Washington Post this Tuesday, columnist Dana Milbank says that when it comes to Donald Trump's stint in the White House, it's all over except for the pouting.

"Back during the Florida recount in 2000, George W. Bush loyalists made T-shirts altering the Gore-Lieberman logo to say 'Sore-Loserman.' But 'sore loser' doesn’t do justice to the epic tantrum President Trump has performed to assuage his narcissistic injury. Trump-Pence has become Rump-Nonsense," Milbank writes.

According to Milbank, Trump's loss by more than 6 million votes is just the beginning regarding his current losing streak. He has lost in every single post-election ballot-counting challenge, and he's also losing key Republican allies, such as Chris Christie, who called Trump’s legal team’s antics a “national embarrassment.”
