Trump had threatened to sue the Times when he was running for president in October 2016 because of its story about allegations of sexual assault against women.
The Times reported that several White House officials still eyed Pence's staff as the source of the op-ed. Bob Woodward's new book suggests that Kelly had butted heads with the official while Kelly was working as Secretary of Homeland Security. "That person should be found out and stopped", Giuliani said.
Trump said the book, written by USA veteran investigative journalist Bob Woodward, "means nothing" and called it a "work of fiction". On the other hand, if you think that Donald Trump is a danger to the country, I suppose you think this and other people who are resisting some of Donald Trump's actions is a patriot. "Eventually the name of this sick person will come out".
Trump allies and political insiders scrambled to unmask the writer.
"He is offering $50,000 cash to information that will lead to the identification and termination of the New York Times "anonymous" author", Kirk wrote on Twitter.
"He would basically be like, 'We've gotta get rid of them".
"Smokey And The Bandit" star Burt Reynolds dies at 82
The success of Smokey and the Bandit , though, had a bit of a surprisingly negative effect on Reynolds' career as an actor. The same year Woody Allen cast him in a small comedic role in his film Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Sex .
In the piece, titled "I Am Part of the Resistance Inside the Trump Administration", the author claimed to be part of a "resistance" working "from within" to "frustrate parts of [Trump's] agenda and his worst inclinations". "We fully recognize what is happening".
President Donald Trump on Friday slammed investigative journalist Bob Woodward's damning portrayal of the inner workings of the United States president's administration as a "scam", alleging that it includes made-up quotes. In one of those investigations, the government secretly seized records for telephone lines and switchboards that more than 100 reporters for The Associated Press used in their Washington bureau and elsewhere.
The writer of the piece says he or she wants Americans to know that "there are adults in the room".
President Trump is pushing back at The New York Times after the newspaper printed an anonymous op-ed reportedly written by "a senior official in the Trump administration".
"Nobody knows who the hell he is, or she, although they put he, but probably that's a little disguised".
