As Denials Pile Up, White House Hunts For Op-Ed Writer | Morning Joe | MSNBC

What if it is all the senior officials? Trump shouldn't look too hard!

arthur riley · September 8, 2018 at 3:24 am

You won't ever know. When I wrote that op-ed, I deliberately inserted false clues, like special words, that direct your suspicions to others . You will never know for sure.

Suomy Nona · September 8, 2018 at 3:29 am

I'm sure that the real anonymous would just admit to it. It still could be any one of the deniers. They need to keep the lie detectors away from this group if they don't want it to meltdown.

has anyone noticed that "Defense Secretary James Mattis" is listed twice?

Eugene Setiawan · September 8, 2018 at 3:51 am

These are facts: donald protect country that attack America during 2016 election and when you are under attack in cyber or physical attack from any country, they are the enemy, and this is war. When you defend your enemy, what do you call that person? Traitor. So any person who defend their enemy and protect enemy in any type of war is treasonous act. donald love his enemy, defend his enemy and attack his allies. Conclusion: Any reasonable persons in the world will draw conclusion that donald and his enablers are traitors to his own country. FBI, DOJ and all Intelligent departments are heroes since they are being attack by GOP and his enablers. History will show that donald is the traitor in highest place with the help of GOP senators, this will be shameful history in US history. Donald and some GOP senators are compromise, Donald and some GOP senators are the Russian asset, Donald is a mole for Russian in USA. This fake commander in chief should have his own security clearance be removed because his treasonous acts.

maybe trump could use waterboarding to find out the 'treasonous' official?!

Ken Hudson · September 8, 2018 at 4:12 am

How long before Trump starts waterboarding the whole White House staff?

paul coy · September 8, 2018 at 4:13 am

Linda McMahon denied writing it? Maybe she's finally turning Face ?

freddie crunk · September 8, 2018 at 4:14 am

I will go to the USA Xtrian church for a year if it turns out to be Melania. Yeah, I can read and my iq is over 85 so I know that how thing is totally made up for the short bus group. But this is so key that I will do what I said AND not say anything to anyone there to get them to realize they are brainwashed full fledged idiots. That last part is key. Last time I went to a church the membership dropped from 145 to less than a hundred in one visit with just a few points.

Toni Olson · September 8, 2018 at 4:16 am

Did you check with Q? Maybe they have an insight as to what is going on.
I still think Donald Trump has set this up. He knows who went to the NYT, he needs a diversion from the Supreme Court Justice hearing and he needs to feed his base and he has been saying he is cleaning House after midterms and what better to clean house than through Fear and intimidation. Those left will sign a brand new NDA and swear a loyalty oath. Trump knows anything they can do to him will take time and he is going to milk it. Plus this gives him reason to rant at the press He said he could stand in the middle of Time Square and shoot someone and he could get away with it. It what he is doing with the Press. It's called assination with word's to get people to react not ACT butt react to his word's.

Acting like a pack of jackals. The republiklan party is showing us what they’ve become. “Fear” is right!

Marty Gray · September 8, 2018 at 4:40 am

LOL!! it is only a matter of time when dear leader is in Lieutenant Commander Philip Francis Queeg (Humphrey Bogart) mode, in The Strawberry Scene in "The Caine Mutiny" will hassle sessions to find out what happened to the can of strawberries.

Claire Aubrey · September 8, 2018 at 4:50 am

Does Joe blow always have to interrupt everyone 's interview off or is it just Mika's that he interrupts?

Tomcat Tomcat · September 8, 2018 at 5:09 am

It’s pompeo and Mathis

The Old Gringo · September 8, 2018 at 5:13 am

If you pay strict attention to the vocabulary it sounds like Trump's daughter. I would include her husband as well.
I also have a problem with this, Morning, I prefer "the mouth" Joe. Is what he says so important that he MUST constantly interrupt Mika Brzezinski?

Tomcat Tomcat · September 8, 2018 at 5:17 am

Trump hates that he can’t have Mika

Ty Ty · September 8, 2018 at 5:22 am

C O A T S is the guilty party
