Trump Official Just Outed as Anonymous, and He’s Not Denying It [Report]

16431

A just released story claims to have outed the name of the author who has been simply referred to as “Anonymous” who has been writing about his time in The White House.

The author, who has kept his identity a secret has written an op ed and a book that have been critical of President Donald Trump and his administration.

In 2018 Anonymous penned an op-ed for The New York Times where he presented himself as someone who was keeping the president in check, The New Republic reported.

“Many of the senior officials in his own administration are working diligently from within to frustrate parts of his agenda and his worst inclinations,” he said in the op ed.

He said he was part of “the steady state” and that he was one of the “unsung heroes … thwarting Mr. Trump’s more misguided impulses.”

“Now, a little more than a year later, the senior official has written a book, titled A Warning and bylined ‘Anonymous,’” The New Republic said.

“The 2018 op-ed received respectful coverage, prompting speculation about the identities of the author and his or her allies.

“But the book has been overtaken by events, with witnesses testifying under oath in the House’s impeachment proceedings about presidential wrongdoings that A Warning hints at in hushed tones.

“Such books make headlines with their hitherto-unreported anecdotes. In A Warning, the reader learns of one crisis moment in which senior administration officials almost resigned together in a ‘midnight self-massacre’ to call attention to Trump’s misconduct.

“In another grim inside account, after judges overruled one of Trump’s hard-line anti-immigrant policies, the president exclaimed: ‘Let’s get rid of the fucking judges.’

“What’s more, Anonymous recounts, Trump wanted not only to send unauthorized migrants to a detention camp at Guantanamo Bay but also to designate them as ‘enemy combatants,’ just like terrorists,” it said.

New Republic writer David Kusnet has his eyes on former Secretary of Defense James Mattis’ chief speechwriter Guy Snodgrass.

“Reading Snodgrass’s Pentagon memoir, Holding the Line, the clues to Anonymous’s identity are apparent,” he said.

“As in A Warning, the sentences and paragraphs are pithy and punchy. Every chapter in both books begins with an inspiring but not cliched quotation from an historic figure.

“Many passages in both books are remarkably similar: the ordeal of conducting a Pentagon briefing for Trump; national security staffers exchanging appalled asides about Trump’s conduct of foreign policy via Twitter; and the arguments for why American alliances strengthen national security and immigration policy shouldn’t be based on building a border wall.

“In particular, both books stress that, when briefed about international alliances, Trump derails discussions by griping about how allies are stiffing the United States, from allegedly miserly NATO contributions to ostensibly one-sided trade policies,” he said.

And for his part Snodgrass is not denying that he is the Anonymous writer.

“The swirl continues,” he said on Twitter with a link to The New Republic story claiming that he is the anonymous scribe.

The swirl of deep state operatives who want to ruin this presidency continues, and this book should swirl its way to the bottom of the sea.

  1. What a coward. Just watched an author on Fox and Friends that wrote a book about President Trump and has been receiving death threats to himself and his family. Even the morning of the interview on Fox and Friends.

    “He said he was part of “the steady state” and that he was one of the “unsung heroes … thwarting Mr. Trump’s more misguided impulses.”

    Nope you were part of a coup. To overthrow the President that WE the PEOPLE elected.

    Don’t even have to read the book to know that this is just a personal problem with someone who thought he and his “steady state” knew better that President Trump and We the People.

    Garbage at best.

    GOD BLESS PRESIDENT TRUMP! GOD BLESS THE USA!

    • Absolutely agree Karen! Funny what a popular fellow our president was until he became president. Running as a conservative and sticking to his promises sure changed that. Trump may be a bull in a china shop sometimes but he is effective, and he doesn’t mind saying what he means and meaning what he says.
      And the so-called “genteel” folks who wouldn’t say shite if they had a mouthful of it have no trouble at all abusing and misusing Trump’s family, particularly the youngster and Melania. If this behavior is acceptable to polite society Lord spare me from them!
      MAGA~*~

      • Love that “bull in a china shop”. Just think if he wasn’t. We the People would still be going along and NOT know about what REALLY happening in Washington DC. I was aware how corrupt it has become, but not to a point they would sell our National Security away for Foreign political gains.

        Polite society? Nah, no longer that as the Globalists have brought in their way, which is Third World. Socialist/Communism/Marxist, name your dictatorship, that’s where we are. Schiff is showing us this by what the House of Representative Majority is doing. CNN, their TRUE propaganda machine is covering it up and attacking anyone who questions. This is the Dems acceptable behavior. This is how they control.

        I thank God every day President Trump was duly elected by We the People. He has done an excellent job for what he has had to deal with. I hope he continues that “bull in the ‘swamp'” and continues to fight for “America First”. We the People deserve it!

        GOD BLESS PRESIDENT TRUMP! GOD BLESS THE USA!

          • I think there will be. President Trump has shown what it is to be a leader. Watching the lackluster DEM debates (SO BORING) the people are turning them off. Republicans should watch this closely as well. Because if they don’t go with a leader like President Trump, they will look just like that. This “outsider” is showing the Republican party how to fight for America First.

            American people are tired of lackluster politicians, tired of their globalist agenda. We the People deserve this. No more status quo!

            GOD BLESS PRESIDENT TRUMP! GOD BLESS THE USA!

        • clearly you do not know what a coup is…..if potus was impeached, the VP would take over.. and ummmm he is a member of the same party… a coup means a different party would take over.. we learned this in 4th grade people! by the way we had ALL 3branches for 45’s first 2 years…yet he did very little. y’all need to do your research. If you think he is not self enriching or is not a globalist, then ,not sure you can call anyone else one

          • lol,

            “a sudden, violent, and illegal seizure of power from a government.”

            It’s the Dems that are doing this. Trying to void the 2016 election. VP Pence and the Republicans, other than the Never-Trumpers are not part of this.

            Yes, there are 3 branches of government, but the Dems made a 4th branch thru the State Department, connected to the FBI, DOJ. Believe me know history, and the REAL branches of government.

            So maybe you should go back and do research on this 4th branch. Illegally set up by the Obama Administration to help the Globalists. Heck that’s why Eric Holder changed the FBI job to go OUTSIDE the USA.

            So yes, Obama, Clinton, Biden, Schiff and the rest ARE Globalists and have made themselves very wealth with this 4th Branch of Government. So when was this passed by Congress? When was the Constitution altered to accept this 4th branch?

            GOD BLESS PRESIDENT TRUMP! GOD BLESS THE USA!

    • RIGHT YOU ARE , AN INSIDER WHO IS THWARTING THE WORKINGS OF THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES IS A TRAITOR TO AMERICA , BRING HIM INTO CUSTODY ASAP.

  2. If he is such a “hero”, why doesn’t he reveal himself…This book is BULLSH*T! I KNOW Donald Trump, and this not how he works…This book will make fine kindling.

  3. The time has come to arrest ALL TREASONOUS TRAITORS that are “outing” themselves as the “resistance”. The ONLY thing they are “resisting” is our CONSTITUTIONAL REPUBLIC not being turned into a third-world COMMUNIST-CONTROLLED Crap hole by the likes of them, and their “followers”. Nip it in the bud NOW, before this country goes into a civil war that will make the last one look like a “walk in the park”.

    • Cliff. If the American citizens of our great republic have not yet got it into their heads, civil war is right around the next corner. You can make a solid bet that when civil war breaks out, and it will, then every corrupt politician in Washington D.C. will have targets on their foreheads. There will not be enough security personnel to protect them from the very people that they swore an oath to serve. Many have asked, how is it possible that these many politicians have wound up being millionaires when they had nothing, to begin with? The answer is very simple. They continue to ass rape the American Patriotic voters and citizens of this great republic, that’s how. Now, how many people out there will disagree with this will not surprise me in the least. My comment, by the way, includes both political parties. Nothing is being, nor is anything getting accomplished to help the American people because of all of the crap that the democratic party is doing in impeaching our President. The American voting public has seen, heard and has had enough of this shill to last for generations to come. The Rooster Has Crowed!!!

  4. President Trump’s “misguided impulses” seem to me to be in the best interest of the USA. That is why he was elected. I intend to vote for him again. People should not vote for someone to run a country that does not put the best interest of that country and it’s citizens first.

  5. When will people like Snodgrass understand doing the same thing get you the same results?
    When president Trump derails discussions by griping about how allies are stiffing the United States, from allegedly miserly NATO contributions to ostensibly one-sided trade policies”, he was clear, we need to change our way of doing business, to effect the changes we want. Not rocket science folks.

    • I agree, but getting through some Americans and politicians thick heads is dam near impossible! If they can’t see all the corruption in DC now when will they! I’m voting straight Red! Blues only care about their pockets getting fuller!

  6. These “resistance” reprobates write books, do and say anything for one reason and one reason only, the “almighty dollar”! If all the news media would stop writing about, talking to or giving them any kind of publicity and of course no one should buy one stinking copy of a book or anything they have done these greedy sob’s would disappear into the woodwork, where they belong! They should be treated like pariahs and shunned like the scum they are. They will be by patriots who know and understand the truth anyway. I hope they receive no happiness and pleasure from a penny they make by treating DJT or anyone else in this way to make money!

  7. What a name, Snodgrass. Another dimwit that could not care less what is good for America. Thank God we Have President Trump looking out for us. Snodgrass, you little snake in the grass, go slither off in the grass.

  8. “Good Stuff Cheap” Ollie’s motto says, won’t be a landing pad for this phony bulloney (baloney is a food) will never buy the the millions of unsold copies of this bull. Ollie’s only buys Good Stuff. Stuff that sells! Period.

    This anonymous garbage is nothing more than an extension of the Adam Bull Schiff conduit that embedded in the muck & slime of the DC Swamp.

    This is nothing less than treason by demonRat tyranny. The time has come to find every single one of these thugs. Bring investigation, convene the proper Grand Jury or Military Tribunal and follow the Constitutional mandate as the founders prescribed.

    Until the the firing squad’s are once again ordered to execute their orders and the treasonous cowards receive their just due, this Adam Bull Schiff, Madame Pill-0si irreverent behavior will not come to an end.

    This behavior is a disease and must be stopped.

  9. Globalists can not TRUTHFULLY pledge their allegiance to the United States!
    Globalists can not TRUTHFULLY pledge their fidelity to the US Constitution!
    ERGO: Globalists can not LAWFULLY hold public office!

    • Or Task force. I was absolutely shocked that no one on the Atlantic Council that makes decisions about foreign affairs is registered as an agent of their Country. And let’s not forget the Squad team and how they broke campaign finance laws to get into office.

      Globalists, and those who made profits in this “Global initiative”, though Americans sold out our Country for personal gain.

      So how do American taxpaying citizens get their views heard, when the shift has been totally Global? Can’t and that’s where we are now. That’s the reason for President Donald Trump. When an elected officials used a different book than the bible to swear their allegiance to this GREAT Nation, it’s gives the attitude of “OK, but not really”.

      Disgrace!

      GOD BLESS PRESIDENT TRUMP! GOD BLESS THE USA!

  10. Now all of a sudden we get all these book writers. Well it kinda gives me the courage to write my own book. I have always wanted to let others know that I have seen pigs fly and pink elephants. I guess I can also put anonymous, so that I won’t get threads, from those who think I’m making fun of them. This new anonymous, writer was more busy writing instead of doing his job. Just another book full of hog wash, I heard from someone else, who was told by I don’t know who.

  11. I am so encouraged to read all the replys to this piece! Thank you all for the common sense and indignation! My hope for Trumps re-election in 2020 and the eventual dismantlement of the ‘deep state’ has been renewed.

  12. Glad this creep is not being allowed to hide behind the veil of anonymity. He is the enemy within and needs to be shown the White House exit door. An abuse of confidence.

  13. What this guy misses is the fact that he has zero power to try to usurp the power given only to the President. It is probably treason to undermine a President, when he has zero right to try to do so. We did not elect this person nor any other to decide what’s what – we gave that to Trump alone.

    • lol, you should definitely go see a doctor for that TDS. Hmm… germandering electoral college

      “Two principal tactics are used in gerrymandering: “cracking” (i.e. diluting the voting power of the opposing party’s supporters across many districts) and “packing” (concentrating the opposing party’s voting power in one district to reduce their voting power in other districts).

      lol, didn’t work for Hilary I guess so blame it on President Trump? wow, same ole, same ole argument.

      Sorry Hilary lost in 2016. THANK GOD!!!!! Really you should get over it.

      GOD BLESS PRESIDENT TRUMP! GOD BLESS THE USA!

    • Like, what the fuck you be talking about, Lawrie? The 3 million dead motherfuckers, double and triple voters, and illegal invader votes, huh??

    • A true disciple of the ex Secretary of State (of Benghazi fame), one of the highest offices in the USA, requiring TOP security clearance, who, by their OWN admission, was too STUPID to know that “C” on official documents meant CLASSIFIED/CONFIDENTIAL…and as such bought into the DNC hack, an impossibility, as the transfer speed of the data precluded any such thing…it was a DOWNLOAD…Seth Rich R.I.P…..which was turned into Russiagate on that “spurious contention”, hacking, by Obama to deflect the resulting WikiLeaks, which by the way have NEVER been debunked,”dump” on Hillary…and morphed into the fraudulent Mueller inquiry…and can safely assume you support “open borders”…No Borders = No Country…and agree with those who wish to circumvent the “spirit and intent” or even outright abolish the Electoral College…No College = No Constitutional Republic…’nuff’ said…it is obvious where you loyalties preside…

  14. Sounds like another Disgruntled Gov. Employee who was reprimanded again and again for using Bully Tactics and publicly speaking out or leaking things they have No Rights to do Under the Supreme Court’s Ruling that Any Government Employee, Including Military, Has the Right to Publicly Speak or Print Anything in an Official Capacity.
    This Should have held up in the Lawsuit against the CRS, the Library of Congress’s (Congressional Research Service), which Col. Morris Davis was fired from After Publicly Criticizing Then Sitting POTUS Obama for sending some Terror Suspects to Federal Courts and Others to Military. Davis stated in Both the Wall Street Journal & the Washington Post that President Obama was Creating a Dangerous Legal Double Standard. This coming from the Chief Prosecutor of Guantanamo who tried Intimidation on Defense Attorneys, Threw Out Evidence gained by the CIA against High Value Detainees because he felt CIA methods were Cruel even though that Evidence was found to be Credible, and Spoke out Publicly Multiple times against the DOD & The Pentagon saying they had No right to Meddle in his court. Using the ACLU to represent him, They Settled for $100,000.oo arguing when he spoke out Publicly it was done in a Personal Capacity.
    This has seemed to be a Big Launch for Others like Davis who Feel the need to tell the Public Embellishing Stories about things that shouldn’t be Publicized.
    Hopefully this will be placed somewhere in President Trumps Future Agenda. Putting a Stop to All those in Higher Offices, including those who work for them, whi use Gossip with a Convoluted Twist of Truth somewhere in there to Face Prosecution for trying to Gain Profit, Power or Damage Another’s Reputation without Real Factual Evidence that would Hold Up in a Court of Law to Back their Accusations or Publishments.
    Thank you in Advance if you read this President Trump and use it in your 2020 Presidential Campaign to Stomp the Swamp.

  15. Just another greedy deep state left winger trying to cash in on what is fashionable…..bashing Trump. Based on Dossier and 7 weeks of secret testimony, nothing produced by deep staters is reliable content. Only ones who will buy it are idiots who want to believe his crap without checking out the facts for themselves. Not worth the paper it is printed on.

  16. I AGREE WITH ALL OF YOU – EVER SINCE DAY ONE – PRESIDENT TRUMP HAS HAD TO DEAL WITH ALL OF THE LIES – AND ATTACKS – AGAINST HIM – BY THE HATEFUL NASTY DEMOCRATS AND LIBERALS – OUR ‘ENERGIZER BUNNY’ JUST KEEPS ON – WINNING – WINNING – WINNING!

    TO MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN AND TO MAKE AMERICA FIRST!!!

  17. Obviously another denier of reality. Washington D.C. is an incestuousesq environment which only serves its players. Until Donald J. Trump labeled that shite hole a “swamp” I’d not thought of that term even though I’ve always believed that the players there, including the media and as I’ve learned including some FOXNEWS perps as well, are sel-serving and take we the people for sheep.

  18. do you think Trump ran its president as a Democrat got elected to you think any of this stuff becoming down if you believe now you’re correct believe yes you’re wrong

    Hey Meathead, a bunch of kids, who were TOLD to boo, showed disrespect for our First Lady.

    DISGUSTING! But as always OUR First Lady showed CLASS! Not that the adults in that room had any. Nor the kids show any class.

    Regarding married to a criminal, yep Michelle was as Obama Administration WAS FILLED with CORRUPTION. Also let’s not forget Biden and baby hunter. Boy and let’s not forget your friend Harvey Weinstein’s girl Hiliary. Now THERE’S a criminal.

    Go back to Hollyweird Meathead. Go back to your socialist, child raping, illegal alien lover town.

    GOD BLESS PRESIDENT TRUMP! GOD BLESS THE USA!

  21. So Gen Mattis had a ” MOUTH PIECE ” complaining for him while he evidently was a coward to speak himself on the problems he had with trump to get BOOTED! Even then the under tone of the MILITARY WAS SHOWING AGAINST TRUMP! Time to WINNOW OUT THE PUSSY MILITARY GENERALS AND ADMIRALS WHO THINK THEY KNOW BEST LIKE MACARTHER DID AND GOT FIRED!
