Trump Wants Justice Department Probe of 'Resistance' Writer

Trump Wants Justice Department Probe of 'Resistance' Writer

The opinion piece was written by an anonymous senior administration official alleging an internal resistance to the President in his own administration. "I don't know, but it just does not look like the White House that I know".

"I think so", Trump replied.

The manifesto followed the release of excerpts from a bombshell book by Watergate reporter Bob Woodward, who portrayed Trump's White House as an out-of-control "crazytown".

In the Fox interview, Trump also said "we are getting the wall done", and that his Administration had already spent $3.2 billion so far on the border wall with Mexico.

For some, the "Deep State" is the thousands of federal government employees who soldier on through changes in administration.

"That is why many Trump appointees have vowed to do what we can to preserve our democratic institutions while thwarting Mr. Trump's more misguided impulses until he is out of office".

Less than nine weeks before a crucial mid-term congressional election, United States President Donald Trump's feud with critical mainstream media has deepened.

On Thursday, Vice President Mike Pence, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats issued public denials, an indication of the nerve the op-ed has struck within the Trump administration and the need to quell suspicions that Trump's top people are behind it.

President Trump said Supreme Court candidate Judge Brett Kavanaugh has his support, as does Republican challenger Matt Rosendale.

Calling the letter "inconsistent with the White House I know,"Chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers Kevin Hassett denied writing the op-ed himself and continued to doubt its legitimacy".

"Since Trump was elected, unusually sensitive leaks of intelligence information created to discredit him and his senior leadership have poured forth from current and former intelligence officials in the Deep State", Goldsmith said.

"Didn't seem very organized", the official said, describing the process.

"I'll write the real book!" he added cryptically. True Senior Advisor Kellyanne Conway told reporters Saturday that she believes the leak came from within the Trump Administration's national security apparatus.

"It's national security", the president said on Air Force One, on the way to a rally in North Dakota Friday.

Justice Department spokeswoman Sarah Isgur Flores previously declined to comment on the matter, saying "we do not confirm or deny investigations".

"The Woodward book is a Joke", Trump tweeted on Monday morning.

According to a report by CNN, the commander-in-chief is reportedly unhappy with his communications department because he believes they haven't handled the book well.

As the initial scramble to unmask the writer proved fruitless, attention turned to the questions the article raised, which have been whispered in Washington for more than a year: Is Trump truly in charge, and could a divided executive branch pose a danger to the country?
