Anonymous sources are used a great deal by tyrannical dictators to destroy their enemies. The Deep State is tyrannical. They are unelected and unaccountable. They’re also Democrats.
The New York Times published an anonymous op-ed from a member of the Trump administration who declared him or herself “part of the Resistance inside the Trump administration”
I personally don’t trust the articles that are written by anonymous.
But a new report is out that President Trump is ordering a real witch hunt in the West Wing and throughout his administration, asking loyal aides to help determine who cooperated with the book.
Today First Lady Melania decided to reveal her opinion on this matter!
She criticized the author of an anonymous New York Times op-ed critical of President Trump, accusing them of “sabotaging” the country.
“If a person is bold enough to accuse people of negative actions, they have a responsibility to publicly stand by their words and people have the right to be able to defend themselves,” Melania Trump said in a statement to The Hill.
“To the writer of the [op-ed] — you are not protecting this country, you are sabotaging it with your cowardly actions,” she added.
Her spokeswoman, Stephanie Grisham, said she issued the first lady’s statement Thursday after CNN asked her if she had a response to the op-ed essay published late Wednesday, in which an anonymous “senior administration official” described himself or herself as “part of the resistance inside the Trump administration.”
“We were asked the question and she felt it important to respond,” Grisham told USA TODAY.
Trump’s statement opened with a genuflection to free speech and a free press, then shifted to a more rebuking tone.
“The press should be fair, unbiased and responsible,” she chided. “Words are important, and accusations can lead to severe consequences. If a person is bold enough to accuse people of negative actions, they have a responsibility to publicly stand by their words and people have the right to be able to defend themselves.
“To the writer of the op-ed – you are not protecting this country, you are sabotaging it with your cowardly actions.”
