Trump doubles down on 'treason' accusation after New York Times op-ed

Donald Trump

"Stop", Sanders said. "If you want to know who the gutless loser is, call the opinion desk of the failing NYT".

"To the writer of the op-ed, you are not protecting this country". Could it be White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, exhausted of her relentless public defense of the president?

The Times took what it called the rare step of publishing an opinion column by the official under an agreement to keep the author's name secret.

"I'm not sure it matters", Conway said.

Rep. Mark Meadows, a North Carolina Republican and a close ally of the White House, said that GOP members of Congress are evaluating whether to start an investigation into the op-ed controversy.

What does the senior official say about Trump? . "There are I think thousands of political appointees, hundreds of folks who would qualify under that title alone".

"If you look back at Woodward's past, he had the same problem with other presidents", the USA president said in a join media conference with the Emir of Kuwait.

"It really depends who it is".

With many 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 op-ed marked another setback for a West Wing already battered by a litany of recent controversies that have left some aides demoralized.

"That would be a huge problem", Conway agreed.

The president's former lead personal attorney, John Dowd, is quoted in graphic language referring to Trump as a "liar" who will end up wearing an "orange jump suit" if he gives testimony to special counsel Robert Muller, who is looking into ties between the 2016 Trump election campaign and Russian Federation.

House Speaker Paul Ryan said Thursday that whoever wrote the article is "living in dishonesty" and shouldn't work for Trump. But lawmakers on Capitol Hill weren't the only ones alarmed by Trump's erratic behaviour, his troubling tweets or his temper.

Greg Gutfeld said the controversial New York Times op-ed allegedly written by an anonymous senior Trump administration official "doesn't hurt Trump a bit". "We are trying to do what's right even when Donald Trump won't", the writer continues. That measure defines methods to legally remove a president from office.

"Nobody has ever done in less than a two-year period what we have done", he said.

Trump sought to portray the op-ed as a reflection of yet more anger by Democrats who have never accepted his surprise 2016 presidential election win. "I have enough respect for the Times to believe that they wouldn't hold themselves up to that".

But he or she also tries to be reassuring: "It may be cold comfort in this chaotic era, but Americans should know that there are adults in the room". "Yet at the same time, if you're having highly sensitive and classified meetings in the Oval Office and you have someone trying to resist those efforts, I think all of us would agree that it is highly unusual and perhaps the only time it has happened".

Trump is obsssed with finding out who wrote the blistering anonymous op-ed.
