NSC Advisor Victoria Coates has been reassigned admits rumors circulating in Washington that she is actually the ‘anonymous’ author of an infamous anti-Trump op-ed published in the New York Times. As The Daily Mail reports:
Deputy national security adviser Victoria Coates may be reassigned to the Department of Energy amid rumors that she is reportedly the author of the infamous New York Times anonymous op-ed.
The possible move comes just weeks after Coates was accused of being behind the Times article, ‘I Am Part of the Resistance Inside the Trump Administration,’ that was published in September 2018, as well as a book titled, A Warning, that was released in November 2019.
Sources claimed that Coates had begun to fear for her job despite being recently promoted by national security adviser Robert O’Brien.
Coates was a political appointee to the Trump administration and a former aide to Ted Cruz.
