Members of President Donald Trump's cabinet denied that they are the source of an anonymous op-ed in the New York Times that says there's a secret "resistance" in the White House plotting to derail numerous president's actions. "The incidents are not anonymous".
But the idea that there is a core of "adults in the room", as described by the op-ed writer, subverting the President's authority and wielding for themselves the power granted to the commander-in-chief during an election season should also be a troubling one, since it raises questions about the integrity of America's democratic system itself.
For months, President Trump's lawyers and special counsel Robert S. Mueller III have danced around whether the president will agree to be interviewed by prosecutors.
The Woodward book is a Joke - just another assault against me, in a barrage of assaults, using now disproven unnamed and anonymous sources.
At a National Security Council meeting on January 19, the president "disregarded the significance of the massive US military presence on the Korean Peninsula, including a special intelligence operation that allowed the United States to detect a North Korean missile launch in seven seconds vs. 15 minutes from Alaska", The Post reported.
Woodward told CBS that during exchanges with North Korea last year, Trump focused on the fact that the US paid $3.5 billion a year to have troops in South Korea, saying "I don't know why they're there", and asking why the USA has 28,000 troops stationed there.

I get good support around here. "I've been failing a lot, so it would be nice to turn the switch and kind of clutch up". McIlroy had been a shot clear of Woods at nine-under par after 15 holes when Woods headed for the clubhouse.
The report came from journalist Bob Woodward's new book.
Trump condemned the "failing New York Times", which he said wouldn't exist if not for him because there would be nothing to write about, and called the publication of the anonymous attack a "disgrace.".
Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said Trump "has every right to be upset" with the piece and that he would be angry if he were the subject of an anonymous attack.
Trump also insisted that the White House is a "smooth running machine". "It will make President Trump more resistant to sober advice than he already was, which doesn't seem like a good thing for the country".
"This is a big and very positive statement from North Korea", Donald Trump said in reference to North Korea holding a military parade without the customary display of nuclear weapons. Dems can't stand losing.
Woodward goes on to say that he's "never seen an instance when the president is so detached from the reality of what's going on". "I don't know if that's in the same class of undercutting the president's agenda but it's certainly trying to reign in" the president, Flake said. "Much better than before I took office", Trump tweeted.
Fleischer said there are hundreds of people who "think they're "senior" officials".
