A senior U.S. official who penned a newspaper column anonymously previous year warning of the dangers of President Donald Trump is coming out with a book.

The book, titled "A Warning", will come out November 19, The Hachette Book Group imprint Twelve announced Tuesday.

The description bills the book as "an unprecedented behind-the-scenes portrait of the Trump presidency from the anonymous senior official whose first words of warning about the president rocked the nation's capital".

"Picking up from where those first words of warning left off, this explosive book offers a shocking, first-hand account of President Trump and his record", the publishing company wrote in the press release.

In an essay, the author wrote of President Trump: "The dilemma - which he does not fully grasp - is that numerous senior officials in his own administration are working diligently from within to frustrate parts of his agenda and his worst inclinations".

Trump lashed out at the anonymous author after the column's publication.

He said that the term "senior administration official", in the newspaper's view, was "used in Washington by both journalists and government officials to describe positions in the upper echelon of an administration, such as the one held by this writer". According to the publisher, the book will be released on November 19 and pick up where the controversial op-ed left off.

The Times opinion article, which ran under the headline: I Am Part of the Resistance Inside the Trump Administration, described a chaotic White House led by a president whose leadership style is "impetuous, adversarial, petty and ineffective".

"The author could have received a seven-figure advance for writing this book", Latimer said. "The hope is the book will get into the hands of those who are persuadables".

The op-ed took particular aim at the president's behavior, claiming he was "erratic" and had a fundamental "amorality" that plagued his administration.

After the op-ed was published, President Donald Trump blasted it as "gutless", tweeting, "TREASON?". "I don't want him at those meetings".

The author will stay anonymous, Twelve, an imprint of Grand Central Publishing/Hachette Book Group, said. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced a formal impeachment inquiry into Trump last month, after reports stemming from a whistleblower claimed Trump withheld financial aid to Ukraine days before a call with Ukrainian leader Volodymyr Zelenskiy, who was then pressured by Trump to dig into unsubstantiated corruption claims against Joe Biden's son. The source said that the author's "closest historic equivalent may be Deep Throat".
