President says he is concerned author may be involved in discussions about national-security issues
President Trump said Friday he wants Attorney General Jeff Sessions to launch an investigation into who in his administration penned a critical anonymous opinion column this week.
“Jeff should be investigating who the author of that piece was because I really believe it’s national security,” Mr. Trump told reporters Friday aboard Air Force One, adding that he was concerned the author may be involved in discussions about national-security issues. “I don’t want him in those meetings.”
A spokeswoman for Mr. Sessions said the agency’s policy is not to confirm or deny the existence of investigations. On Thursday, White House officials said there was no official investigation in the works and that White House chief of staff John Kelly was helping oversee an informal search for the author.
The New York Times stood behind its decision to publish the anonymous op-ed.
