Woodward's White House book a 'scam'

A High-Level

The author, who has not been identified, described being part of a "resistance" movement within the Trump White House and said that several staffers "are working diligently from within to frustrate parts of his agenda and his worst inclinations".

Who wrote the anonymous New York Times op-ed about Trump?

Trump again suggested the op-ed and the Times could amount to treason during Thursday's campaign rally for Republican Senate hopeful Matt Rosendale, calling it "unfair" and speculating it could have been written by someone in the "deep state".

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.

One of the callers allegedly told Lee that whoever wrote the piece should "be hung".

The author also claimed there were early discussions within the president's cabinet about invoking the 25th Amendment - the Constitutional process through which the Vice President and a majority of cabinet officials can set in motion a process to remove the president from office due to a perceived lack of fitness.

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

Trump says in an interview Friday with reporters aboard Air Force One that he believes the opinion piece critical of his leadership is a "national security" issue.

Advised the tests would result in mass resignations, he ordered the tests for about 1,000 employees of the State and Defense departments, the Central Intelligence Agency and the National Security Council.

Trump was asked if, in light of the book and column, he trust the people around him.

CNN has published a letter that was allegedly stolen off of President Donald Trump's desk last September by former White House chief economic adviser Gary Cohn.

"It could motivate Trump to pursue the Erdogan-style purge of the bureaucracy that he hasn't pursued yet", said an unnamed Justice Department trial attorney.

The MSNBC contributor claimed that Trump wants to arrest whoever it is that wrote the piece, though it is not clear what charges could be brought against someone for sharply criticizing the president. I think their reporters should go and investigate who it is.

"I come from a place where if you're not in a position to execute the commander's intent, you have a singular option, that is to leave", said Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. We fully recognise what is happening. "None of them voted for a gutless, anonymous source to the failing New York Times". She praised the free press as "important to our democracy" but assailed the writer, saying, "You are not protecting this country, you are sabotaging it with your cowardly actions".
