Trump's 'treasonous' NYT Op-Ed writer could be a woman who "thinks she's a hero" according to campaign insider
Donald Trump's former aide Michael Caputo does not believe the White House is yet aware of who the person is, however, he thinks they are on their way to uncovering her identity
President Donald Trump's former campaign aide, Michael Caputo, on Sunday said that he knows the "insider" who wrote the anonymous op-ed in New York Times and added that the person is a female.
Caputo, while speaking to CNN during an interiew, said that he has figured out who wrote the op-ed titled 'I am part of the resistance inside the Trump administration'. He then revealed that he thinks the person is a woman by saying the person belives that "she is a hero to the American people."
Caputo said: "I started with this. Who is the person who I believe hates the president the most? Who is the person in the administration who has screamed about [Trump] in their own private office and gone forward and purged their entire office of Trump people?
The former Trump aide added that he does not believe the White House is yet aware of who the person is, however, he thinks they are on their way to uncovering their identity.
Caputo ruled out Vice President Mike Pence, whom people have been suspecting as the author of the op-ed, and said that ,according to him, the author is a woman. "I think, first of all, this person will never admit it. In my mind, the author of this op-ed believes that she is a hero to the American people," the former Trump aide said.
Shortly after it was published on September 5, the op-ed and the newspaper were heavily criticized by President Trump and his allies. Trump immediately sent out a cryptic tweet that just read: 'TREASON?'. He then suggested that the piece must have been written by someone who is "failing and probably here for all the wrong reasons."

The National Public Radio, last week, reported Trump as saying: "The New York Times is failing. If I weren't here, I'd believe The New York Times probably wouldn't even exist. And someday, when I'm not president… The New York Times and CNN and all of these phony media outlets will be out of business, folks. They'll be out of business because there will be nothing to write and there will be nothing of interest."
