Omarosa says she thinks anonymous op-ed came from Pence's office

"Our office is above such amateur acts".

As Washington entered into a whirlwind round of "Who Dunnit" after the New York Times published an anonymous op-ed Wednesday afternoon detailing a resistance-style effort inside the Trump White House to undermine the president's authority, senior administration officials are now stepping forward to say it wasn't them.

After dismissing the trending theory that Vice President Mike Pence wrote the piece, they considered the more plausible idea that the anonymous writer was intentionally targeting Pence by using the word "lodestar" - a word the vice president uses publicly and often.

By midday, seven senior officials had disavowed the piece, including Vice President Mike Pence, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Defense Secretary James Mattis, while criticizing both the author for writing it and the Times for publishing it.

"It's not mine", Mr Pompeo told reporters during a trip to New Delhi, India.

The Justice Department alleges that Holmes and Balwani transmitted the results despite knowing that the tests were unreliable. The Securities and Exchange Commission brought civil fraud charges against Holmes and Balwani earlier this year.

Trump, a Republican, 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.

"From the beginning of our tenure, we have insisted that the entire [intelligence community] remain focused on our mission to provide the President and policymakers with the best possible intelligence".

The anonymous official wrote: "Given the instability many witnessed, there were early whispers within the Cabinet of invoking the 25th Amendment", but decided against it to avoid a constitutional crisis.

"This is going to drive Trump absolutely nuts", said Kimmel. The lawmakers have contended that such documents would show wrongdoing on the part of Federal Bureau of Investigation and Justice Department officials. After questioning the authenticity of the source, Trump also called on the Times to "turn him/her over to government at once!" as, to him, a matter of national security.
