Watergate's Woodward says Times Trump op-ed not up to his standards

Anonymous official cites Trump ‘amorality’ in NY Times op-ed

In what is the biggest secret since Watergate's "Deep Throat", many are questioning who inside the White House wrote the scathing op-ed published by the New York Times.

Woodward said: "At that moment there was a sense of profound alarm in the Pentagon leadership that, 'My God, one tweet and we have reliable information that the North Koreans are going to read this as an attack is imminent". The anonymous writer goes on to denounce Trump's "mass-marketing of the notion that the press is the 'enemy of the people, ' and says his "impulses are generally anti-trade and anti-democratic".

However, allegations that Mattis is intervening regularly to avert national security disasters have once again raised the question of whether military commanders possess the authority to refuse a direct order from the President under certain circumstances.

Omarosa Manigault- Newman, who recently released the White House memoir "Unhinged", tweeted the names of her four "suspects", including John DeStefano, Bill Stepien, Andrew Bremberg and Nick Ayers.

"Definitely not treason, not even close It is just criticism of the president", said Mr. Painter, a frequent critic of Mr. Trump.

Vice President Mike Pence told CBS News" "Face the Nation' that Woodward's book "shows a complete misunderstanding of how this White House works".

In rare support from a Democrat, President Donald Trump received the benefit of the doubt Sunday from former N.Y. Governor and N.Y. Democratic Party Chairman David Paterson, who ripped the "cabal in the White House that's working against the president".

But Trump lambasted Woodward's account as a "phony story".

Donald Trump's defenders, led by Vice President Mike Pence, were out in force on Sunday following a turbulent week capped by the publication of an anonymous New York Times opinion piece savaging the president.

Linda McMahon, administrator of the Trump Administration's Small Business Council. also denied writing the op-ed.

Almost every Cabinet member issued a statement or told reporters that they didn't pen the op-ed. I say, 'Hey, if I don't know somebody.

Meanwhile, denials from key administration officials pour in.

"The root of the problem is the president's amorality", wrote the official.

Woodward describes the situation in his forthcoming book "Fear" and also discussed it in an interview on 'CBS Sunday Morning'. "Everyone can agree that if they find out who did it, the author can be fired, but we should be careful about the line between things for which you can be fired and things for which the president can sic the Justice Department on you".

And that was just one remark that Trump made in a rally where he addressed topics such as NAFTA, Second Amendment rights and the upcoming midterm elections.
