Justice Department Searches for Anonymous Anti-Trump Author

A yet-to-be-identified senior Trump administration official has written a purported tell-all on the inner-workings of the White House.

The book, set for release November 12, is poised to become the next cause célèbre for wealthy liberals unencumbered by critical thought.

With a little more than a week before it hits the shelves, the Justice Department is demanding the publisher disclose the identity of the anonymous author, claiming they are beholden to nondisclosure agreements. (NBC News)
 

The letter, signed by Assistant Attorney General Joseph Hunt, asked for details or copies of the author’s nondisclosure agreements “or the dates of the author’s service and the agencies where the author was employed, so that we may determine the terms of the author’s nondisclosure agreements and ensure that they have been followed.”

Hachette Book Group confirmed that they’d received a letter from the Trump administration and said that they would not comply with the requests because the publisher is not party to any contracts with the U.S. government and intends to keep the author’s identity secret.

Hachette has, however, made a commitment of confidentiality to Anonymous and we intend to honor that commitment,” the publisher said. “Please be assured that Hachette takes its legal responsibilities seriously and, accordingly, Hachette respectfully declines to provide you with the information your letter seeks.”

Publication of the book may violate nondisclosure agreements based on the individual’s work or access to classified information, the letter states, “if the author is, in fact, a current or former ‘senior official’ in the Trump administration.”
