The New York Times published an anonymous essay written by a senior White House official who claimed to be working with others in the administration in efforts to protect the country against Trump's worst instincts. Trump launched into a Tweet-storm, claiming it was fabricated by the NYT, and then making accusations of "TREASON? against either the NYT or the writer themselves. He then called out the NYT to turn "him/her over to the government at once!" for "National Security Purposes".
