‘Lodestar’ and ‘first principles’: Twitter’s hunt for the White House turncoat

Look She wore her long hair in a low bun with a few strands pulled out at the front for a more relaxed touch

President Trump's obsession with insiders trying to undermine him began long before the release of the scathing new tell-all by Bob Woodward and an anonymous op-ed in the New York Times - when he began carrying a list of suspected leakers past year, according to a report.

In a rare step, Pence's communications director Jarrod Agen tweeted early Thursday that "The Vice President puts his name on his Op-Eds". "[Donald Trump] has a clear governing vision for the country and his record of results is remarkable".

During an interview with Fox and Friends, conducted onstage prior to Trump's rally and set to air on Friday, the president called the paper's decision to publish the column "very unfair".

As Trump flew to Billings, Montana, for a rally where he was likely to rip into the article, more of his top advisers joined the crowd denying any responsibility for its authorship.

The author says that he/she isn't a liberal operative and agrees with numerous policy goals the administration is pursuing, but that those goals are being achieved in spite of - and not because of - the president.

Let's just hope this saga doesn't end like this. Since the New York Times op-ed appeared, Pence, in particular, has been a favorite possibility of many online because both he and the anonymous writer have used the unusual word "lodestar" in the past.

"Now, and The New York Times is failing", Trump said.

A pair of West Wing representatives contacted her two separate times on the same day because they believed the president was "unravelling".

A defiant Trump, holding an event with sheriffs at the White House, lashed out at the Times for publishing the op-ed. "Stop", Sanders said. "If you want to know who the gutless loser is, call the opinion desk of the failing NYT".

Trump describes the editorial as "gutless".

"Nobody's going to come even close to beating me in 2020, because of what we've done", Trump said.

Sanders said The Times should apologize.

The Times op-ed, and Woodward's book, which is to be published next week, followed many news articles during Trump's 19-month presidency that have depicted turbulence inside the White House under his leadership.

Defense Secretary Mattis said, "The contemptuous words about the president attributed to me in Woodward's book were never uttered by me or in my presence".

"The media's wild obsession with the identity of the anonymous coward is recklessly tarnishing the reputation of thousands of great Americans who proudly serve our country and work for President Trump".

"President Trump is facing a test to his presidency unlike any faced by a modern American leader", the official wrote in an op-ed article entitled "I Am Part of the Resistance Inside the Trump Administration". It's like there's a sign that says 'In case of emergency, break glass, ' but these guys are like, 'I mean we could break the glass, but then there'd be glass everywhere.

"Unelected, deep state operatives who defy the voters to push their own secret agendas are truly a threat to democracy itself". The first lady, Melania Trump, also condemned the author and called on the individual to come forward.

Coats later issued his own denial; and with three prominent administration members delivering on-the-record denials, the focus could now fall on other senior aides to do the same, with questions raised about those who stay silent.

The Times has always been a target of President Donald Trump's vitriol.
