Pompeo says did not author New York Times ‘resistance’ column

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

Coats, meanwhile, released a statement that said speculation that the op-ed was written by him or his principal deputy, Susan M. Gordon, is "patently false". The odds Trump himself wrote the piece were listed at 25-to-1.

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

On Wednesday, visibly angry at a White House event, Trump called the Times article a "gutless editorial", and in a later tweet he suggested it was treasonous.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Director of National Intelligence Daniel R. Coats also denied being the author on Thursday.

The "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" host then turned his attention to internet speculation that Vice President Mike Pence wrote the piece, given his previous use of the word "lodestar" (which appears in the op-ed).

The piece, which slammed Trump's leadership style as "impetuous, adversarial, petty and ineffective", said some senior officials have been working from within to frustrate parts of the president's agenda and protect the country from his worst impulses.

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".

During an appearance on NBC's " Megyn Kelly Today " show, D'Amico told Kelly there was well over $150,000 left of the donations. Bobbitt suspects a used BMW supposedly belonging to the couple was purchased using some of the finds from the GoFundMe site.

Some of the guessing game over the authorship centred on whether the author worked in the White House or a federal agency.

In a speech at the UN, Pence said, "So let us rededicate ourselves to the mission upon which this body was founded - the first words of the U.N. Charter, 'to maintain global peace, ' must again be our lodestar, our ideal, and our aspiration.Through reform of our efforts and reform of this institution, through renewed courage to speak and act whenever and wherever the unalienable rights of innocent people, or the peace of the world, is at risk we will create, as our President said, a more safe and peaceful future for all mankind".

John McCormack, a writer for the conservative Weekly Standard, put together a Twitter poll on who the anonymous author was, including Haley, White House chief of staff John Kelly, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis and first daughter Ivanka Trump. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley. "It is laughable to think this could come from the secretary", spokesman Tony Sayegh said on Twitter.

The op-ed, published online Wednesday afternoon, was written by a senior official in the Trump administration, according to the Times.

"The Deep State and the Left, and their vehicle, the Fake News Media, are going insane - & they don't know what to do", Trump tweeted on Thursday morning.

"Im draining the Swamp, and the Swamp is trying to fight back".

In a CBS interview, Pence said, "As you know we made changes as soon as I took over the transition efforts".
