A U.S. Senator suggested Thursday that President Donald J. Trump may be justified in using lie detector tests to find out who wrote the anonymous op-ed published in the New York Times Wednesday.
“It’s not unprecedented for people with security clearances to be asked whether or not they’re revealing things against the law under oath and also by lie detector,” Paul said. “We need to get to the bottom of it.”
Paul argued that it is standard procedure to use lie detectors on high level law enforcement and intelligence officials with security clearances.
“We use the lie-detector test routinely for CIA agents and FBI agents,” he said. “If you have a security clearance in the White House, I think it would be acceptable to use a lie detector test and ask people whether or not they’re talking to the media against the policy of the White House.”
The anonymous op-ed rocked the White House Wednesday evening.
An alleged “senior official in the Trump administration” wrote an anonymous op-ed piece in the New York Times Wednesday claiming to be part of the “resistance” which contained a thinly veiled threat towards President Donald J. Trump.
“Given the instability many witnessed, there were early whispers within the cabinet of invoking the 25th Amendment, which would start a complex process for removing the president. But no one wanted to precipitate a constitutional crisis. So we will do what we can to steer the administration in the right direction until — one way or another — it’s over,” the author said.
One way or another? Is a high level Trump administrator threatening the life of the President?
“The dilemma — which he does not fully grasp — is that many of the senior officials in his own administration are working diligently from within to frustrate parts of his agenda and his worst inclinations,” said the author of the piece.
Trump blasted the author of the piece on Twitter.
“Does the so-called ‘Senior Administration Official’ really exist, or is it just the Failing New York Times with another phony source? If the GUTLESS anonymous person does indeed exist, the Times must, for National Security purposes, turn him/her over to government at once!” he said.

SURRENDER: ‘American Thinker’ Discredits Their Own Writing Staff to Appease Dominion Voting Systems
Bending the knee.
The conservative opinion outlet American Thinker has published a letter discrediting themselves at the behest of Dominion Voting Systems.
“We received a lengthy letter from Dominion’s defamation lawyers explaining why they believe that their client has been the victim of defamatory statements. Having considered the full import of the letter, we have agreed to their request,” founder Thomas Lifton wrote in a blog.
They threw several of their published writers under the bus to publish the following statement to get Dominion off their backs:
These statements are completely false and have no basis in fact. Industry experts and public officials alike have confirmed that Dominion conducted itself appropriately and that there is simply no evidence to support these claims.
It was wrong for us to publish these false statements. We apologize to Dominion for all of the harm this caused them and their employees. We also apologize to our readers for abandoning 9 journalistic principles and misrepresenting Dominion’s track record and its limited role in tabulating votes for the November 2020 election. We regret this grave error.
The ostensibly conservative TV network Newsmax has finished selling out after emerging as an upstart competitor to Fox News, caving to the infamous election software companies Dominion and Smartmatic after receiving legal threats.
“Since election day, various guests, attorneys, and elected officials have appeared on Newsmax and offered opinions and claims on Smartmatic and Dominion systems,” anchor John Tabacco said on the TV network.
“Both companies that offer voting software in the U.S., and Newsmax would like to clarify its news coverage and note that it has not reported as true certain claims made about these companies,” he added.
The selling out only intensified at this point, as the anchor recited public relations spin that might as well have been written by a Dominion or Smartmatic hack.
“Newsmax has found no evidence that either Dominion or Smartmatic owns the other or has any business association with each other. We have no evidence that Dominion uses Smartmatic software or vice versa. No evidence has been offered that Dominion or Smartmatic used software or reprogrammed software that manipulated votes in the 2020 election,” Tabacco said.
