In the op-ed, the unnamed administration official claims there's "quiet resistance within the administration" and that many "are working diligently from within to frustrate the President's agenda and his worst inclinations".

Following the publication of a scathing op-ed from an anonymous senior Trump administration official, The New York Times refused to disclose any identifiable information about its source.

"The Vice President puts his name on his Op-Eds", tweeted Jarrod Agen, communications director for Pence. "[Donald Trump] has a clear governing vision for the country and his record of results is remarkable".

Pelosi mused about "who wrote it, who has denied it already".

US Vice-President Mike Pence has dismissed speculation he is the author of a damning anonymous editorial that attacks President Donald Trump.

No one has come forward to say they've authored the piece, which has dominated the news cycle since it was published Wednesday afternoon.

White House aides and Washington journalists have scrambled to find the author but it remains a mystery.

The essay gives details of a White House apparently in distress.

Later Friday, The New York Times released a statement condemning Trump's call for an investigation and said the newspaper is "confident" the DOJ "would not participate in such a blatant abuse of government power". Gutfeld said. "Yep, just two silly variables - security and prosperity - which happen to be the best variables ever".

"So we will do what we can to steer the administration in the right direction until it's over".

Trump estimated that the "senior" official might actually be a lower official, as it could be one out of thousands of officials.

The Times said the writer is a senior administration official whose job would be at risk if the person's identity were to be made public.

However, it also used the term "first principles", a phrase often used by General Jim Mattis, Trump's national security adviser.

It is also a contrast to the description in Watergate reporter Bob Woodward's upcoming book, which quotes chief of staff John Kelly as saying the Trump White House is "crazytown" with a president who has "gone off the rails".
