‘It seems kind of familiar to me’: Omarosa believes Pence’s political strategist Nick Ayers penned anonymous NYT op-ed because the ‘style and tone’ of the piece remind her of correspondence with the Vice President’s office
- Omarosa says ‘Resistance’ op-ed was likely penned by someone in Pence’s office
- She believes Pence’s political strategist Nick Ayers is responsible for the damming missive and says that he has the most to gain by undermining Trump
- She says the group of ‘resistance’ people in the White House think they’re heroes
Omarosa Manigault Newman shared her own insightful guess as to who the author of the damning anonymous New York Times op-ed is that has enraged the president.
‘I took some time and went back and looked through all of my emails, particularly emails out of the vice president’s office, because the first time I read the op-ed, it just seemed kind of familiar to me,’ Manigault Newman told Yahoo Finance on Tuesday.
‘After looking at memos and correspondence from the vice president’s office, I’m pretty convinced that it came from that way. Not just because of the term “lodestar”, but because of the style and tone of it.’
However, she says she doesn’t believe the ‘Resistance’ article came directly from Vice President Mike Pence, but rather has narrowed down to someone extremely close to him.

She believes Pence’s wonder-boy political strategist Nick Ayers is the likely culprit.
The former White House aide made a similar suggestion on The View this week, but elaborated by saying it is Ayers has the ‘most to gain’.
The piece suggested there is a secretive movement from within the White House of people who have banded together to thwart the president’s worst impulses.
‘All of these guys work in these groups together and could see themselves as some sort of hero trying to save the country from Donald Trump, but to me Nick Ayers is the one who has the most to gain from writing this,’ she continued.

Ayers is a relatively young- 36- powerful political strategist who served as Pence’s chief of staff and is one of hos most trusted aides.
Pence has vehemently denied that he, or anyone from his office had anything to do with the op-ed, even going as far to say this week that he would take a lie detector test to prove that he is not undermining the presidency.
‘Let me be very clear. I’m 100 percent confident that no one on the vice president’s staff was involved in this anonymous editorial. I know my people,’ Pence said Sunday during an interview on CBS’ Face the Nation.
Witch hunt: President Trump has been actively working on smoking out the author of the ‘Resistance’ op-ed in the New York Times that says people in the White House are actively undermining the president
‘They get up every day and are dedicated, just as much as I am, to advancing the president’s agenda and supporting everything.’
Immediately after its publication, senior White House officials in quick succession denied being behind the explosive missive.
Last week Trump said he wanted Attorney General Jeff Sessions to investigate the editorial, declaring it a breach of ‘national security.’
He also likened the article to a treasonous act over Twitter.
