Report: White House Has List Of Who Could Have Written Op-Ed | The Last Word | MSNBC



Charlie Harris Jr · September 8, 2018 at 1:48 am

Trump is author of it…deflect from woodwards book ! Get sympathy of base..reason to find would writer reveal their plans? Its obvious trump admin come on folks…easy to figure…time for russia to pack up and leave our White House…spys galore..go Mueller

Dan Conner · September 8, 2018 at 2:07 am

Wondering if Trump himself is the number one suspect? Sounds like some crap that he would do to take the heat off of himself. Could always have the reporting individual sign a Non Disclosure Agreement. Far fetched but I wouldn't disregard that he isn't capable of doing it

NoneOfYour Beeswax · September 8, 2018 at 2:40 am

They won't find "the author" because it was written by a small group of senior Republicans who want to reassure those Republican who are repelled by Trump that they are taking care of the untraconservative agenda and preventing Trump from derailing everything with his incompetence or criminality. it's no coincidence that it appears when the run-up to the mid-terms just begun.

Trump starting to pee on his pants

billy vandory · September 8, 2018 at 3:33 am

Op Ed is meaningless. It tells us nothing we didn't know or haven't guessed 2,000 lies and over a year ago. It came from Pence's office to lend them some kind of legitimacy later and signal the decline of Trump Co. Pence was Manafort's pick, thus he was the Russian's choice. This is just phase 2. Pence aides send this over to NYT. Corporate Owners remove the leash from their media. Trump's populist ride is almost over. In 6 months the economy tanks which means bailouts for banks and Wall Street. Pence is just the Punk to push it through.

Shannon Bloom · September 8, 2018 at 3:37 am

I wouldn't be surprised if some Russian somewhere helped author that Op Ed.

Still haven't figured it out? The blind leading the blind, enjoy The Last Days!
Traitors, for MONEY! God Bless The Gentiles; citizens united, the 1% Pigs.
The Biggest Distraction Yet To Come, For those whose eyes are opened….
And you thought this traitor drumpf worked for you, lol! He is the soulless 1% PIGS, token puppet. So where are the patriotic republicans? There are none, all have long bowed down to their lord and masters, the 1% PIGS! They keep you busy attacking those weaker than you. Simply because you are nothing more than their human livestock, to use as they wish. The corporate soulless 1% traitorous pigs have dumb down the public so much that now their only concern is, Reality TV & Reality Politics!
Hey Gentiles, the garbage of man has taken over; it is their time. The greedy, filthy, soulless 1% pigs are part of the corporate scum that have stolen our country. Remember the words… Choose. Choose the form of the Destructor! Goats, don't you know who you are? You chose drumpf the orange orangutan. POS drumpf was given the keys to the bottomless pit and with them was allowed to drain the swamp. Which allowed the filth of man to climb up out of it, called citizens united. As your democracy is now dead, bow down to your Lords and Masters the 1%, citizens united the filth of man. Is anyone still questioning who these traitors are?

Toni Olson · September 8, 2018 at 3:54 am

Did he get this list from the Q?

Jane Dough · September 8, 2018 at 4:15 am

REPORT: Those on the (MAGA) Trump Train know full well
who is behind this psycho coup attempt.

geno mccgeno · September 8, 2018 at 4:16 am

Wouldn't it be nice if we could force the "president" to take a polygraph test whenever he speaks to, or for the American people. Trump's paranoia has finally infected his entire administration. He'd better be very careful how he handles this situation, it could backfire badly on him. If trump finds and fires the person, that would free them up to cooperate with Mueller's investigation, and whoever it is will surely have a lot of very interesting information to share.

Monaro Native · September 8, 2018 at 4:25 am

NYT is trolling 😂

Manuela Costa Lima · September 8, 2018 at 4:53 am

Another enemies' list circulating in the White House? Trump will make damned sure they're off the 2018 Santa List.

Indra · September 8, 2018 at 4:54 am

why does stupid think all are out to get him? he says he is best guy and smartest guy on planet

Ramatu Brimah · September 8, 2018 at 4:59 am

That dumb and ugly Rand Paul is another Putin Robot…watch his actions closely.

Adam Świtlak · September 8, 2018 at 5:26 am

I have a list of Russian agents in the WH and the Senat.

John Doe · September 8, 2018 at 5:29 am

Careful with the Draft dodging racist Dictator!!

David Boudreau · September 8, 2018 at 5:32 am

Canada can put a Tarriff on the electricity we import from them and destroy TREASONTRUMP!

Steven Miller · September 8, 2018 at 5:34 am

Supoena the NY Times and make them spend millions on lawyers to finish them off for good.

Morty Tashman · September 8, 2018 at 5:51 am

It's non-stop high-jinxed antics and goofy shenanigans on Pennsylvania Avenue. Trump is oblivious while Pence keeps teasing him with "It's that 'Spike Fence' guy, I tell ya…" Dotard thinks he has it narrowed down to that kid who mows the WH lawn and Sean Spicer, who Spanky forgot he shitcanned months ago.

Bearline Productions · September 8, 2018 at 6:03 am

A lie detector test? Poor machine will explode….LOL

Guy Tetreault · September 8, 2018 at 7:06 am

Wake up America!

What is important is not too find that op-Ed author

What is important is to remove Trumputin

Glynis Joseph · September 8, 2018 at 7:11 am

I agree on polygraph, do one on trump first & ask him about Putin & Russian collusion, tax fraud, pedophilia, $laundering etc…

Diana Campanella · September 8, 2018 at 8:59 am

This 'anonymous' is a McCain supporter. That's where he or she loses all credibility. Just another Traitor.

Elsa Groenewald · September 8, 2018 at 9:27 am

It's TRUMP himself he likes to talk about himself. Put a chain around his mouth and fingers

Jack Van Berg · September 8, 2018 at 9:57 am

Come on Donald . You have said before that torture works so call all members of your staff into the Oval office one by one and water board them. They will talk.
