Tucker Carlson says he thinks he knows who wrote the NYT editorial piece on President Trump. Speculation has been rampant ever since it appeared and bookies have even begun taking bets on it. So far, the favorite is Mike Pence, based solely on the word, lodestar, which he uses frequently.
I think someone used the word to throw suspicion on Pence. Carlson refuses to say who he suspects until he can confirm his suspicion. But people don’t realize that Larry Kudlow has used that word himself. If I were betting, I would bet it was a low-level White House staffer. The NYT did this before on fracking, claiming a source to be a top White House official but was nothing but an intern.
Tucker Carlson started his show Wednesday night by saying he has a good idea who wrote an anonymous hit piece about the Donald Trump White House that was published that afternoon by The New York Times and has been creating a mini-firestorm in the political world.
“It was written anonymously. It’s the work of someone who claims to be an official inside the Trump administration, a member of the underground resistance within the West Wing,” Carlson said of the commentary piece, according to The Hill.
“We think we’ve got a pretty good idea who wrote this piece,” Carlson continued. “We’ve called the White House for comment on it tonight, but until we can confirm the identity, of course, we’re not going to accuse anyone in public. We’ll keep you posted on that.”
Something tells me that when they find this person, he is going to be in a world of hurt. He could be charged with treason. Or he could be charged with sedition. I think it’s obvious that the editorial was written in order to throw the Trump administration into turmoil.
