Rumors Swirl SecState Mike Pompeo Drafted NYT ‘Deep State’ Hit Piece on Trump (Details)

The New York Times released an op-ed they claim comes from a “senior White House official.” The piece is an attack on President Donald Trump, as most people could have figured.

Of course, the source is anonymous. Whoever penned the essay says he or she is a member of the left’s resistance to Trump, and “working diligently from within to frustrate” the MAGA agenda.

Rumors have swirled about who this saboteur might be.

Vice President Mike Pence?

How about Secretary of State Mike Pompeo?

From Daily Caller:

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Thursday denied being the author of an anonymous op-ed in The New York Times proclaiming the existence of a cabal of administration insiders who are secretly working to thwart President Donald Trump and his agenda.

“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,” Pompeo said at a press conference in India, according to Fox News. “And this person instead, according to the New York Times, chose not only to stay but to undermine what President Trump and this administration are trying to do.”

Pompeo went on to criticize the media for what he said was a coordinated campaign to attack Trump.

“I have to tell you, I just find the media’s efforts in this regard to undermine this administration incredibly disturbing,” he said.

There’s no chance Pompeo was behind the NYT article.

What Trump values above all else is loyalty, and Pompeo has been loyal from day one. In fact, Pompeo has been so loyal to Trump that the president decided to can former SecState Rex Tillerson and replace him with then-CIA Director Pompeo.

So, this is really a big nothingburger. Nothing to see here. Move along.

Now, to catch the real culprit!

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders has called for the anonymous “official” to resign, per Daily Caller:

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders called for the resignation of an anonymous official who wrote an op-ed in the New York Times disparaging President Donald Trump.

“It may be cold comfort in this chaotic era, but Americans should know that there are adults in the room. We fully recognize what is happening. And we are trying to do what’s right even when Donald Trump won’t,” the anonymous official said.
