The New York Times has published an anonymous op-ed
by a person described as a senior administration official. It says there’s a resistance inside the Trump administration to curb Trump’s worst impulses.

It’s of a piece with Bob Woodward’s book, if more sober than “Crazytown” quotes.


It’s also from a defender of the broad policies of the administration.

I’m of conflicting feelings about this. Heroic? Or self-serving? Read it and see what you think.


The piece closes:

There is a quiet resistance within the administration of people choosing to put country first. But the real difference will be made by everyday citizens rising above politics, reaching across the aisle and resolving to shed the labels in favor of a single one: Americans.

One thought about that. The electors didn’t pick this person to lead the country. They picked Trump.  Impeachment or another election are the only ways out. Perhaps if people like the senior official would let Trump be Trump, the quicker option might become viable, though it is not today.


Alexander Haig, anyone?
