After The New York Times published an anonymous op-ed written by a current "senior official in the Trump administration" on Wednesday, readers rushed to decipher and deduce who the mysterious author might be. Ryan said he understands Trump'stweeting and "unconventional tactics" bother people, but the Wisconsin Republican said the president is producing "good results".
Lee's revelation comes as Trump fumes in response to an anonymous op-ed about administration insiders and a White House tell-all by journalist Bob Woodward that claims there are grave concerns among the highest ranks of the Trump administration about the president's judgment.
Trump describes the editorial as "gutless".
Although mental health professionals typically stay away from diagnosing public figures they've never actually evaluated, Lee and others have chosen to speak out about their concerns.
Much has also been discussed about Trump's reaction to the article.
Yet senior GOP lawmakers rejected the idea that the op-ed would damage Trump, insisting instead that it would help him during the midterms and in the 2020 presidential election.
"This is not sustainable to have an executive branch where individuals are not following the orders of the chief executive", Brennan told NBC's "Today" show. "At worst, he has attacked them outright". "He always knows where I stand, and he and I both know this story is total BS".
In the column, the author presents a damning assessment of the Trump presidency and suggests there is a network of officials working behind the scenes to protect the nation from Trump.
The author wrote that there was a resistance working within the administration to thwart the president's worst impulses.
The writer of the piece says he or she wants Americans to know that "there are adults in the room". "Yet at the same time, if you're having highly sensitive and classified meetings in the Oval Office and you have someone trying to resist those efforts, I think all of us would agree that it is highly unusual and perhaps the only time it has happened". "And we are trying to do what's right even when Donald Trump won't".
Trump took to Twitter nearly immediately after it was published, demanding that the New York Times turn over the identity of the senior staff member who wrote the editorial.
The anonymous piece from the senior administration official bashed president Donald Trump as incompetent, chaotic, and erratic.
Sen. Richard C. Shelby (R-Ala.), chairman of the Senate Appropriations Committee, said the op-ed highlighted loyalty issues among staffers more than Trump's shortcomings. If they feel writing this is appropriate, maybe they feel it would be appropriate to disclose national security secrets, too. Can you imagine what it must be like to have a job at which nearly everyone who works for you thinks you're a complete idiot?
The newspaper later said the tweet referring to "he" had been "drafted by someone who is not aware of the author's identity, including the gender, so the use of "he" was an error". "By the process of elimination, it will probably come down to the butler, who probably has the most knowledge of the presidents in the White House".
