Theory On The Anonymous NYT Op-Ed Writer: Mike Pence?

Twitter Sleuths Think Mike Pence Wrote That Op-Ed Against Trump! See The Evidence!

In the wake of the explosive article, thousands of Twitter users began to speculate who the senior official was that had written the letter, many of them citing Pence as the author.

In the column, the anonymous official asserted that many senior officials in Trump's administration have been working from within to frustrate parts of his agenda to protect the country from his worst impulses.

"With his oath of office, Vice President Mike Pence became ... the most successful Christian supremacist in American history", the book notes.

The theory, which Pence's office has adamantly denied, stems from the presence of one word in the piece that Mike Pence frequently uses, a word not in common use.

The Times piece slammed Trump's leadership style as "impetuous, adversarial, petty and ineffective" and called some of his decisions "half-baked, ill-informed and occasionally reckless".

Mueller will accept Trump's written responses as first step
On Tuesday, the President called the Mueller investigation "illegal" in an interview with the Daily Caller. Trump: "There were, I mean tremendous conflicts here, you know the conflicts, you've heard the conflicts".

Biographer Michael D'Antonio, author of the new book, "The Shadow President: The Truth About Mike Pence", wrote that Pence feels God "calling him" to "function as a president-in-waiting".

Some of the guessing game over the authorship centered on whether the author worked in the White House or a federal agency. The mystery writer uses the word at one point in reference to the late Sen.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders tried to shut down the speculation. The biographer said Pence is trying to position himself as the "normal guy" in the administration. "We made changes - we moved lobbyists out of the transition team and that's going to continue to be a lodestar and I can tell your viewers that the president-elect is determined to move ethics reform in the next year in the Congress of the United States".

"The Vice President puts his name on his Op-Eds".
