Not even Hollywood could come out with this storyline. A mole is working in the White House along with other accomplices. The mole and accomplices are high-level Trump officials. One of them came out to the New York Times and wrote a gut-wrenching op-ed.
The mole wrote an article titled “I am part of the Resistance Inside the Trump Administration” that starts with the subtitle, “I work for the president but like-minded colleagues and I have vowed to thwart parts of his agenda and his worst inclinations.”
The New York Times explains why they printed the Op-Ed anonymously.
The Times today is taking the rare step of publishing an anonymous Op-Ed essay. We have done so at the request of the author, a senior official in the Trump administration whose identity is known to us and whose job would be jeopardized by its disclosure. We believe publishing this essay anonymously is the only way to deliver an important perspective to our readers.
The Trump Administration mole is clear. Trump is unable to grasp that senior officials in his administration are undermining parts of his agenda.
President Trump is facing a test to his presidency unlike any faced by a modern American leader. It’s not just that the special counsel looms large. Or that the country is bitterly divided over Mr. Trump’s leadership. Or even that his party might well lose the House to an opposition hellbent on his downfall. The dilemma — which he does not fully grasp — is that many of the senior officials in his own administration are working diligently from within to frustrate parts of his agenda and his worst inclinations.
The mole explains why s(he) and others are forced to undermine the President.
We believe our first duty is to this country, and the president continues to act in a manner that is detrimental to the health of our republic. That is why many Trump appointees have vowed to do what we can to preserve our democratic institutions while thwarting Mr. Trump’s more misguided impulses until he is out of office.
The mole then explains the root of the problem.
The root of the problem is the president’s amorality. Anyone who works with him knows he is not moored to any discernible first principles that guide his decision making … In addition to his mass-marketing of the notion that the press is the “enemy of the people,” President Trump’s impulses are ge nerally anti-trade and anti-democratic.
The Op-Ed writer said what they are doing is not the act of a deep state but of a steady state. He closes the article as follows.
We may no longer have Senator McCain. But we will always have his example — a lodestar for restoring honor to public life and our national dialogue. Mr. Trump may fear such honorable men, but we should revere them. There is a quiet resistance within the administration of people choosing to put country first. But the real difference will be made by everyday citizens rising above politics, reaching across the aisle and resolving to shed the labels in favor of a single one: Americans.
One hopes that this article will trigger Republicans to do the right thing. It is time for them to step up.
