The President continues to drain the swamp. Earlier this week the President dropped the hammer on yet another deep state mole, his Deputy National Security Adviser Victoria Coates, after it was discovered that she allegedly was the infamous anti-Trump “Anonymous” author, who penned for the New York Times an op-ed article and book critical of the President titled “I Am Part of the Resistance inside the Trump Administration.”
Her departure came amid persistent rumors that Coates was indeed “Anonymous,” the White House however did not cite that as a reason for Coates leaving the National Security Council (NSC), which has become extremely problematic for the administration, in terms of unauthorized leaks.
Under the Presidents direction, Coates has been reassigned as a senior adviser to Energy Secretary Dan Brouillette.
National Security Adviser Robert O’Brien told reporters:
“While I’m sad to lose an important member of our team, Victoria will be a big asset to Secretary Brouillette as he executes the President’s energy security policy priorities. She has served the President loyally since the earliest days of the administration and has played a valued role in the President’s Middle East policy.”
Coates has vehemently denied she is “Anonymous,” and a senior administration official confirms that the administration “rejects” the whisper campaign within the White House that she is.
“The White House leadership rejects rumors that have circulated recently and does not put any stock in the suggestion that Victoria Coates is the author of ‘A Warning’ or the related op-ed in the New York Times,” a senior administration official told Axios.
“Dr. Coates’ transition to the Department of Energy has been in the works for several weeks and reflects the continued trust and confidence the administration places in her as she takes on this sensitive role at the Department of Energy, where she will continue working to implement the President’s agenda,” the official added.
Still, her abrupt departure from the White House is viewed by some with direct knowledge of who “Anonymous” may be, is the reason for reassigning Coates, along with a large number of NSC personnel out of the White House.
Former U.S. Attorney Joe diGenova isn’t a Trump official, however he claimed on Monday that a senior advisor to the President have “identified the senior official behind the infamous ‘resistance’ op-ed, which was published in the Times in 2018.”
In fact the President himself recently claimed he knew the identity of “Anonymous.”
“It’s not so much a search… I know who it is,” Trump told reporters prior to boarding Air Force One on Tuesday, as they repeatedly asked him to reveal the name.
“Can’t tell you that,” he replied. “But I know who it is. We won’t get into it; people know it’s a fraud.”
While the White House is reluctant to name Coates outright, one thing is clear within the New York Times op-ed article that the so called “resistance” is only “partly” within the White House, other swamp-dwellers lurk within the media, using individuals like Coates in describing the President as unfit to lead the country.
“Anonymous” hiding behind her identity much like the infamous “Whistleblower” cowardly penned that the President “stumbles, slurs, gets confused, is easily irritated, and has trouble synthesizing information.”
However Trump appeared confident that he had rooted out the official responsible, stating “I know all about ‘Anonymous.”
The President has indicated that he wants to reduce the NSC under 120 policy staffers, according to an agency spokesman.
“We remain on track to meeting the rightsizing goal Ambassador O’Brien outlined in October, and in fact may exceed that target by drawing down even more positions,” said NSC spokesman John Ullyot in an email to Breitbart News on Tuesday.
