Former FBI agent suggests Kirstjen Nielsen may have written the infamous anonymous New York Times op-ed

Mod: This is a theory, and even its originator says it is speculation that might or might not be proven true. That said, the puzzle pieces do fit, and who really likes an unsolved mystery? Not me. Look, if Nielsen does turn out to be the long sought after anonymous, she is now likely to talk. And wouldn't someone who was at the center of the decisions to kidnap the children of asylum seekers and put them in dog kennels have interesting tales to tell? Think of all the book and movie revenue that will be generated. The mole and the monsters. Inquiring minds will want to know.

Former FBI agent suggests Kirstjen Nielsen may have written the infamous anonymous New York Times op-ed (ThisWeek.com link): Could President Trump have finally gotten rid of that anonymous New York Times op-ed writer without even realizing it?

That's what one former FBI agent speculated following the resignation of Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen on Sunday, per Mediaite. Josh Campbell, a CNN analyst and former FBI special agent, suggested on Twitter that Nielsen's resignation letter bears a striking resemblance to the Times op-ed written by an anonymous senior administration official who said they were part of a "resistance" working to undermine Trump's worst impulses from within.

While citing his FBI experience, Campbell observed that both Nielsen's resignation letter and the Times op-ed make heavy use of commas and em dashes, also pointing to a few other instances of similar choices.

Campbell noted that he is "just spitballing" here, but his theory would fit with reporting from CNN that Nielsen felt Trump had become "unhinged" on issues concerning the border, as well as reporting from The New York Times that she drafted a resignation letter last year but never submitted it.

The White House scrambled to find the writer of that anonymous op-ed when it was published in September 2018, but seven months later, its author has never been revealed, although former White House official Omarosa Manigault Newman in November cited rumors that the person had already been "quietly removed." For now, although a new theory has emerged, the mystery continues.

Mod: That anonymous editorial, called "I Am Part of the Resistance Inside the Trump Administration," created quite a stir back in September of 2018. You can link to it here.

Trump Official to CNN: Kirstjen Nielsen Thought President Was Becoming ‘Increasingly Unhinged’ on Immigration (Mediaite.com link): Kirstjen Nielsen‘s abrupt resignation as Homeland Security Secretary came at the request of President Donald Trump, over clashes on immigration policy, according to multiple reports. A senior White House official told Axios’s Jonathan Swan that Trump wasn’t satisfied with Nielsen, and asked for her resignation. “He didn’t think she was getting the job done,” the official said.

CBS News reported that Nielsen’s departure is part of a “massive overhaul” of DHS “engineered and directed” by Stephen Miller, a top Trump adviser and immigration hardliner.

Meanwhile, a a senior administration official told CNN’s Jake Tapper that Nielsen “believed the situation was becoming untenable with the President becoming increasingly unhinged about the border crisis and making unreasonable and even impossible requests.”

  6. This is a theory and speculation that it may or may not be true as Kirstjen Nielsen resigns from one of many of Trumps cabinet positions; the resistance from within has tried to keep under wraps verified information that can be found in the best selling book "Becoming" of First Lady Michelle Obama being a Trans Woman.

  10. President Trump speaking moments ago on Southern Border: "we have the worst migration laws of any country.
    Democrats want open borders and crime.
    We have obstruction from Democratics in Congress, we need to change the laws, it would take only a few minutes, but Democrats don't want this".
    "There coming like its a picnic, welcome to Disneyland"; "President Obama is the one that created the cages for children, i fixed it, the press knows it, you know it, take a look , look it up, check for yourself, report the truth, but you wont".

  15. Immature are the Democrats in power that want crime, drugs, increase in ILLEGAL ACTIVITIES from ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS entering the United States un vetted.
    Just ask any LEGAL IMMIGRANT who has had had to sacrifice inorder to do the right thing when applying for a life in the United States along with a goal of becoming a United States citizen.
    Immature does not describe the disgust viewed by many of us LEGAL residents working to make America our home.
    The Democratic Party has shown their true identity towards NOT REPRESENTING why so many of us want the life of Democracy and Freedom.
