Stephanie Grisham said she did not know what would happen to the administrative assistant who wrote and opened the anonymous book, but said that the individual “must be found.”
The White House press secretary admitted that she still doesn’t know who the author is, despite reports that it might be possible to be Victoria Coates of the National Security Council, who is currently being relocated.
“What can you tell us about her departure from the NSC?” Grisham was asked at Fox & Friends on Tuesday morning.
“You know, I don’t know the answer,” she said with regard to Coates. “I don’t know if that’s something that’s going to happen or if it’s something she wants to happen.”
“You know, whoever wrote the anonymous book is a coward and whoever wrote the anonymous book and the op-ed, they must be found,” she demanded. “And the fact that they are working in government against the president and essentially against the American people is not good.”

The reactions came after reports that Victoria Coates from the National Security Council may be transferred to the Ministry of Energy
The possible move comes just a few weeks after Coates was accused of sitting behind the Times article, “I Am Part of the Resistance Inside the Trump Administration,” which was published in September 2018, as well as a book titled, A Warning, which was released in November 2019
‘I don’t know what will happen to that employee. We don’t usually talk about staff. And that would be an NSC issue, “Grisham commented.
Coates faces potential reassignment to the Department of Energy amid rumors that it is said to be the author of the infamous anonymous op-ed and New York Times best-selling book “A Warning.”
Top officials from the Trump administration were reportedly discussing the relocation of Coates, Axios reported.
The possible move comes just a few weeks after Coates was accused of supporting the Times article, “I Am Part of the Resistance Inside the Trump Administration,” which was published in September 2018, and the accompanying book, which was published more than a year later was released in November 2019.
Sources claimed that Coates began to fear for her job, despite being recently promoted by National Security Advisor Robert O’Brien.
However, it is not known that Coates, a former assistant to Republican senator Ted Cruz, disagrees with Trump’s foreign policy, which makes her unsuitable for Anonymous. Coates, who is an art historian, is a political agent of the Trump government.
Earlier this month for A Warning, book agents denied that Coates is anonymous.
“To be clear, there is no chance of misunderstanding: Dr. Coates is not anonymous, “said Matt Latimer, the co-founder of literary agency Javelin. Politics.

In September 2018, the author of the Times column (photo) was only identified as a senior official within the Trump administration, a broad category that became the basis for a guessing game in the capital of the capital
“She doesn’t know who Anonymous is. We have never discussed the book A Warning with her anonymously or before it was published. She didn’t write it, edit it, see it in advance, know nothing about it, or as far as we know ever read it, “he said in a statement.
On the back of the cover of the book it says: “The truth about the president must be spoken, not after Americans have stood in the voting booth to consider whether they will give him another term and not after he has left office.
Coates usually agrees with Trump’s foreign policy, which makes her unsuitable for the anonymous individual
“Hopefully others will correct the mistake of silence and choose to speak out.”
In September 2018, the author of the Times column was only identified as a “senior official” within the Trump administration, a broad category that became the basis for a gambling game in the capital of the capital.
Trump attacked the author at the time, and alternatively suggested that the assignment could be a betrayal, and that the author was a fictional creation of the Times rather than a real person.
“Does the so-called” Senior Administration Official “really exist, or is it just the Failing New York Times with a different fake source?” he tweeted at the time.
“If the GUTLESS anonymous person actually exists, the Times must hand it over to the government for national security!” Trump also tweeted a single word at the time: “TREASON?”
The Times described the president as “boisterous, hostile, insignificant, and ineffective” in the way he manages the government, saying the author is part of an organized “resistance” whose purpose is to “preserve our democratic institutions while keeping Trump’s thwart more misguided impulses until it is no longer present ‘.
During an event at the White House with a group of sheriffs, Trump said the writer “probably … failed and probably here for all the wrong reasons.”
Sarah Sanders, then the White House secretary, said in a statement at the time that the essay was “pathetic, reckless, and selfish,” and challenged the Times to “give an apology.”

“This is just another example of the joint efforts of the liberal media to discredit the president,” she said at the time.
Since the publication of the version in 2018 and the book last year, others have been accused of being anonymous.
The former speechwriter for Jim Mattis who has written an all-about-his-time in the Pentagon has denied a suggestion that he is also the author of the Anonymous op-ed and book about the White House by Donald Trump – after speculation has spun a whole day.
Guy Snodgrass said in November that he was not the writer, who responded head-on to a claim from the man who had previously written Joe Klein correctly as the author of Primary Colors, the 1996 novel a key about Bill Clinton’s presidential campaign.
“No, I’m not the writer,” Snodgrass told CNN at the time.
“They asked me the question, I just put it away. I thought it would be asked and we would be ready … To let it rest, no I am not the author of ‘A Warning’, I am not the anonymous writer. “
