    The New York Times reported on Sunday that it was unable to corroborate the claims of a second accuser who says Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh exposed himself to her in college. Deborah Ramirez alleges that Kavanaugh thrust his penis into her face while she was drunk at a Yale University dormitory party. The New Yorker ran with Ramirez’s allegation on Sunday despite being unable to produce any firsthand witnesses or confirm that Kavanaugh was at the party where the incident was said to have occurred.The New York Times noted several paragraphs deep in a report that it chose not...

    The New York Times on Saturday defended its bombshell report on Friday that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein discussed secretly recording conversations with President Trump last year and proposed the possibility of administration officials invoking the 25th Amendment to remove the president from office. The Times's deputy managing editor Matt Purdy wrote in a statement Saturday that the newspaper stands by the reporting of its journalists, Mike Schmidt and Adam Goldman, who broke the story. Citing unnamed sources, the Times reported on Friday that Rosenstein made the remarks just weeks into his job last year following the sudden firing of...

    Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein is challenging a bombshell story in The New York Times alleging that he discussed secretly recording President Trump last year, calling it “inaccurate” and “factually incorrect.” Rosenstein in a statement released by the Justice Department also said that there was “no basis” to invoke the 25th Amendment, after the Times reported that he proposed recruiting various Cabinet officials to take such a step in order to remove Trump from office over his unfitness. “The New York Times’s story is inaccurate and factually incorrect,” Rosenstein said. “I will not further comment on a story based on...

    Nikki Haley, President Trump's ambassador to the United Nations, said Thursday that The New York Times knew she had not been involved in the purchase of expensive curtains for her New York residence when it printed a story implying she did. "They knew the facts and they released the story anyway," Haley told Fox News' "The Story." "I hadn't even taken the job when these curtains were picked out," she said. "We told the reporters that these were the facts." The Times issued an editor's note at the top of its piece, which was originally titled "Nikki Haley's View of...

    It has been announced that President Trump is encouraging the Department of Justice to investigate the writer behind the anonymous New York Times “resistance” op-ed by an alleged Trump administration official that has caused such a ruckus in our national discourse the past few days. While many (non-lawyers) have reacted negatively to the suggestion by vaguely citing the “First Amendment” and the supposed lack of classified information in the piece, which has traditionally been the basis for most successful media-related prosecutions in the past decade, nonetheless there still remain potential rationales that could be utilized against the anonymous leaker.

    White House counselor Kellyanne Conway has "no idea" who the mysterious New York Times op-ed author is, but she knows what will become of him or her. The author, reportedly a "senior official" in the Trump administration, will be outed, Conway predicted on "Fox & Friends" Monday morning. “Cowards are like criminals – they eventually suss out themselves because they eventually confess or brag to the wrong person, and I suspect that’s what will happen here.” -@KellyannePolls on anonymous NYT op-ed writer— FOX & friends (@foxandfriends) September 10, 2018 The author, who she calls "unimpressive," wanted to be a...

    Grasping: South Carolina Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham gave an interesting take on the “anonymous” op-ed published by a “senior Trump administration official” in The New York Times last week, in which the writer repeated earlier claims from others that the White House is in chaos and the president is unhinged. Appearing on CNN with Wolf Blitzer, Graham said he believes the op-ed is the latest sign of panic from a Deep State that their alleged savior, special counsel Robert Mueller has zip, zero, nada when it comes to his original mandate of finding illicit, nefarious “Russian collusion” with the 2016...

    All of Washington is abuzz after The New York Times released an anonymous op-ed by a “senior” official in the Trump administration. Aside from seeking to undermine the result of an election, the anonymous author is arguing for a bad has-been policy agenda and approach to politics. The American people can roll their eyes and move on from the controversy. This is just another Republican who hasn’t learned anything from the Bush years, and thinks we are back in the year 2000. The answer: vote for Republicans—like the president—who have learned something from the last two decades. The anonymous author...
  • The author’s own words strongly suggest subterfuge. (NYT Anonymous Hit Piece)

    The most surprising aspect of the furor surrounding the infamous unsigned New York Times Op-Ed, ostensibly written by a member of the Trump administration, is that anyone believes its author is a senior official. Assuming this person isn’t an employee of the Times, and it is by no means unknown for the Gray Lady’s journalists to fabricate quotes and attribute them to anonymous “officials,” the author of this hit piece is at most a mid-level staffer. Indeed, if this character is actually employed in the Trump administration, it is almost certainly at a level of insignificance verging on invisibility.

    President Trump should probably call off the hunt for the “senior official in the...administration" who the New York Times is claiming wrote a damning op-ed for the newspaper. Apparently the “senior official” claims to be part of a group of White House staff trying to thwart the president’s agenda from within. He also claims they seriously considered trying to depose the president using the 25th amendment of the Constitution. Serious stuff. But President Trump should relax and remember it is the New York Times after all. The paper has a scandalous history of lying about the seniority of officials it...

    'This is a clear and present danger to the country.... a soft coup aided and abetted' by the mediaSean Hannity joined President Trump on Friday in urging federal authorities to identify the author of the anonymously written op-ed responsible for rocking the White House this week, calling their conduct a crime worthy of being investigated by the U.S. Secret Service.

    President Trump called on Attorney General Jeff Sessions to investigate the New York Times Friday afternoon in order to find out which "senior administration official" wrote an anonymous op-ed published in the paper earlier this week. Trump is arguing it is essential to U.S. national security to find out who the author is. "It’s a disgrace that somebody can do that. I think it’s more disgraceful that the New York Times would do it. That somebody is allowed to do that is very sad commentary," Trump said onboard Air Force One. "It doesn’t seem to be anybody very high up...

    One of the most pointed and poignant attacks on the Trump presidency so far has been revealed this week thanks to an anonymous New York Times op-ed piece. Trending: White House Saboteur Gets Unbelievable Tongue Lashing from Melania In the article, a supposed “senior” White House official spilled the alleged beans about a plan to disrupt the agenda of the elected President, and undermine the work of the Commander in Chief. This still unknown rabble rouser has been espoused as “cowardly” by First Lady Melania Trump, and called “gutless” by the President himself. Meanwhile, a frantic search continues inside the...

    Fox News is President Donald Trump’s favorite network, thanks to its largely favorable coverage. But not everyone on the air there was singing his praises. On Thursday, A.B. Stoddard, an associate editor at Real Clear Politics and a regular on the network, said the anonymous op-ed published this week in The New York Times that claimed there were people in the White House actively working against Trump was likely to set the president off. “I think this writer believes that they’re trying to calm down the country and assure everybody who’s nervous about President Trump’s temperament that all’s well,” Stoddard...

    House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) says the anonymous op-ed published in The New York Times blasting President Trump and discussing a resistance within the administration is proof of the Deep State. “If you didn’t believe in the Deep State before, it just took out an advertisement in The New York Times,” McCarthy wrote in an op-ed published by the Times on Friday. The anonymous op-ed attributed only to a senior administration official has rocked Washington. But the California Republican, one of Trump’s closest allies in Congress and a top contender to be Speaker of the House if Republicans keep...

    Recently, the New York Times published an anonymously written op-ed supposedly authored by "a senior official in the Trump administration whose identity is known to us and whose job would be jeopardized by its disclosure." Analyzing the language used by this "senior official" leads me to conclude that something is not quite right with that claim. In the second paragraph of the piece, the author, who I must remind readers is claimed by the Times to be "a senior official in the Trump administration" (a claim, by the way, the author himself never makes) states, while listing the travails facing...
