White House needs lie detector tests to root out cowardly resistance

Sept. 5, 2018, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement in response to an oped allegedly written by a senior administration official that stated “many of the senior officials in his own administration are working diligently from within to frustrate parts of his agenda”:

“It is outrageous that a purported Trump administration official has allegedly written an opinion piece in the New York Times admitting to undermining the Trump presidency from within. In doing so, this author automatically impugns every other person in the Trump White House, as everyone now must be suspected of being part of the #NeverTrump resistance.  If the author of the piece has any of the honor that he or she claims by inference, then he or she should proudly stand behind their work and resign their position.

“In the meantime, every single person within the White House, starting with the National Security Council staff, should be polygraphed and anyone who fails or refuses to take a lie detector should be shown the door.  It is that simple.  It is time to rid the White House of the vermin who joined the Administration with a goal of undermining it.

“No president should be surrounded by simple yes men, but the author’s claim, that mirrors previous year-old media interviews with national security staff, demonstrates there are those within the White House staff who believe that they have the responsibility to veto decisions made by the duly elected President of the United States. The fact that President Trump hired a large number of staff which opposed his presidency was and is his original sin.  And while it seems shocking now, the fact these rats are now inspired to anonymously undermine him may turn out for the best if it forces the President to clean house in favor of those who actually support his agenda of Making America Great Again.”
