President Donald Trump declared Friday the Department of Justice should try to identify the writer of a bitingly critical New York Timesopinionpiece, purportedly submitted by a member of an administration "resistance" movement straining to thwart his most risky impulses.
The White House has compiled a list of 12 senior officials who may have written the anonymous New York Times op-ed, an outside adviser told The Times on Thursday.
"It may be cold comfort in this chaotic era, but Americans should know that there are adults in the room", the anonymous official wrote in the op-ed.
He added that they are not "doing us a service by actively promoting 90 per cent of the insane stuff that's coming out of this White House, and then saying, 'Don't worry, we're preventing the other 10 per cent'".
Trump claims that his call for an investigation is not spurred by the op-ed's negative portrayal of him. "What's unfair, I don't mind when they write a book and they make lies because it gets discredited", later adding "W$3 hen somebody writes and you can't discredit because you have no idea who they are". "We're looking at it very strongly from a legal standpoint", he said aboard Air Force One.
