Megyn Kelly says the Trump administration official behind the anonymous opinion piece in the New York Times is a "coward" for not showing his face publicly.
Speaking to TMZ in New York on Thursday, Kelly said the anonymous White House official should "grow up". and & # 39; take a position & # 39;
"I have no idea who he is, but I feel that if he has a problem with him, go out and say it publicly," Kelly said.
"You not only subvert the will of the people by stealing things from the President. You are not a chosen person. President Trump was chosen fairly, whether he likes it or does not like it, he has to deal with that.

"Go to the house, go to the Senate, try to get the legislators to do something about it."
& # 39; Do not be a coward & # 39;
Kelly concluded by saying that he did not believe that the person should be penalized, but urged them to simply "grow up."
His comments came as Trump's top lieutenants rushed on Thursday to deny the authorship of the explosive opinion piece that has plunged his presidency into its worst crisis so far by proclaiming a secret internal resistance to his "reckless" and "amoral" leadership. "
The White House has been convulsed since Wednesday by a hunt by the top official who declared, in an unsigned article for The New York Times, that "unsung heroes" were quietly working within the administration to thwart the "worst inclinations" of the president. .
Trump responded with a furious barrage of tweets that asked if the author had committed treason, while the First Lady, Melania Trump, condemned the decision to publish.
"For the writer of the opinion article, he is not protecting this country, he is sabotaging it with his cowardly actions," he said.
On the Internet and in Washington, meanwhile, a guessing game has arisen about who could be the author, which caused that almost all the members of the government classified in the cabinet denied that they were.
Vice President Mike Pence, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis and Director of National Intelligence, Dan Coats, were among those who issued denials.
Trump's top advisers have struggled to deny the opinion article in the Times on Wednesday that criticized the president's leadership style as impetuous, petty and ineffective.
