They think it's Pence or Mattis since they're known to frequently use words that were found in the opinion piece.  My guess is that it was ghost-written after talking to a number of people in the administration.  It is composite picture instead of a single individual.

Kudlow is a late arrival to the WH.  The author appears to have been there much longer.

They are just cuing up a "liberal Q anon"... now they can have the "persona" make comments on current events...

They're all a pack of liars.  I say fire them all. Trump is so great he can run everything all by himself (just ask hm...no, wait, he'll get around to telling you that himself in the middle of some rant or some rave).

 

By the way, what is that "labour" thing?  Are you a Brit or something?

By dropping different clues to different identities, it's meant to make Trump distrust his staff.  It sounds like the CIA penned the article to undermine the administration.  He becomes a puppet of the hard-liners by doing their dirty work.

The CIA didn't even cross my mind, which shows how good it is at this kind of stuff.  The last President who had a relationship with the US intelligence services as bad this one has got shot in Dallas.

Boy, talk about the very definition of an oxymoron...nice job!!

 

Since we are playing this game of supposition, and aside the fact that what was written in the memo has been part of the daily talking points for both the New York Times and Washington Post for over 18 months now (including the "unnamed source" and no facts are provided in the statement) there are two "high level" staff and/or cabinet members who haven't (as of this writing) said a word either way: John Kelly and Jeff Sessions.

 

My opinion (whether that actually matters or not), based on the structural content of the note, and going with the idea that this was not written "in house" at the Times, this has all the earmarks of Jon Huntsman, Jr., the current Ambassador to Russia and former Governor of Utah.
