Trump Will Order DOJ to Investigate Anonymous Op-Ed Author  -  And Possibly Sue the New York Times

President Donald Trump says he will ask the Dept. of Justice to investigate who wrote the damning anonymous op-ed that's made headlines for days – and made the president furious. He will also ask the DOJ to investigate the New York Times, possibly including suing the paper, according to various reports.

The president supported his actions by claiming national security is at stake.

There is no national security threat for a senior White House official to pen an anonymous op-ed if they did not reveal information related to national security, which it did not.

Some on social media noted the irony of the current president attacking the First Amendment and the mainstream media, while former President Barack Obama was delivering a speech on democracy, being aired live at the same time.
