Trump calls for probe of NY Times after critical anonymous column

Twitter Sleuths Think Mike Pence Wrote That Op-Ed Against Trump! See The Evidence!

White House Deputy Press Secretary Hogan Gidley, left, and White House Deputy Chief of Staff for Communications, Bill Shine, center, listen as President Donald Trump talks to reporters while in flight from Billings, Mont., to Fargo, N.D., Friday, Sept. 7, 2018. "It's national security. I would say Jeff should be investigating who the author of that piece was because I really believe it's national security". Trump called for the Times to disclose the author's identity, calling it a threat to national security.

While Trump Cabinet officials came out one by one to deny they wrote that explosive New York Times op-ed by an anonymous senior administration official, a denial may not be enough for President Trump and some of his allies.

Pence office, Pompeo deny being author of anonymous New York Times op-ed.

Trump also said Friday that he was still open to answering questions from special counsel Robert Mueller in his investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

Trump claims that his call for an investigation is not spurred by the op-ed's negative portrayal of him. "It doesn't seem to be anybody very high up because everybody very high up has already said it wasn't me".

"Speculation that The New York Times op-ed was written by me or my Principal Deputy is patently false. Everybody came out, nearly everybody came out where there are quotes, like General Kelly, General Mattis, so many different people came out and they really hit the book hard because they didn't say the things that was attributed".

"In March 2017, Paul said that the federal government should employ the method to ascertain who leaked the transcripts of former national security adviser Michael Flynn's conversations with the US ambassador".

Some Trump administration officials and allies claim the author could have hindered national security by giving US foes and friends alike the sense there is a weak and unfit commander in chief in the Oval Office.

US SeNator Elizabeth Warren said Thursday it is time to invoke a constitutional amendment to remove President Donald Trump if top officials believe he can no longer fulfill his duties.

He continued: "We have a really well run, smooth-running White House".

This image released by Simon & Schuster shows 'Fear: Trump in the White House, ' by Bob Woodward, available on September 11. He also unleashed on Trump's border wall, lack of emergency response after Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico and immigration laws.

"I'd do it, but under certain circumstances", he told reporters on Air Force One. "This is just another example of the liberal media's concerted effort to discredit the President", Sanders said.
