White House official identified as 'Anonymous' author will be removed: diGenova

In an interview with WMAL's Mornings on the Mall, former U.S. Attorney Joe DiGenova released a statement that the White House has identified the official who wrote the anonymous book and critical New York Times opinion piece. The person is a Trump administration official and is now about to be removed from his post. 

DiGenova said that he and his wife Victoria Toensing were informed b a senior government official that the "Anonymous" has been identified. The person is working under the White House and was said to be removed "soon." His comments were said days after the White House removed Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman and his brother from the National Security Council. 

DiGenova and his wife have been featured on several news stories due to the details that emerged on the couple's work with President Donald Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani. They were working to find evidence that former Vice President Joe Biden held up to $1 billion in loan guarantees from Ukraine to help his son Hunter Biden escape a corruption investigation.

The White House official who hides under the guise of "Anonymous"was first published on September 2018 by the New York Times. The senior member of the administration explains that there is an "internal resistance" group of officials that were currently working to stymie the president's worst inclinations. Many of the officials denied being a part of the internal resistance and being Anonymous, labeling the author "gutless" and questioned this officer's existence. 

Then, Anonymous published a book entitled "A Warning" on November 2019. Th book contained "explosive claims", one of which alleged a group of White House aides put together a tally of Cabinet members who would likely support the use of 25th Amendment to remove President Trump from his post. 

One of the highlights of this piece was the claim that there were a group of senior Trump administration officials considering a "midnight self-massacre" in which all these officials would resign together.
