Deputy national security adviser Victoria Coates may be reassigned to the Department of Energy amid rumors that she is reportedly the author of the infamous New York Times anonymous op-ed.
Top officials from President Donald Trump's administration are reportedly discussing Coates' reassignment, according to a report from Axios.
The possible move comes just weeks after Coates was accused of being behind the Times article, 'I Am Part of the Resistance Inside the Trump Administration,' that was published in September 2018, as well as a book titled, A Warning, that was released in November 2019.

Can't remember if people here thought Coates was a good idea or bad idea.
IF she is the leak then jail time should be on the table.
Will be interesting to see how Ted Cruz weighs in on this. "Coates served as an advisor to former Texas governor Rick Perry during his 2012 presidential bid before she became an advisor to Ted Cruz in 2013 and his leading national security advisor during his 2016 presidential campaign"
Can’t we let our president ever fire anyone outright?
I guess somehow we can hope he is reelected with GOP majorities in the House and Senate that aren’t actually compromised uniparty GOPe pols.
Then maybe he could start to do something about our corrupt Deep State monstrosity.
In the 2000s, she blogged mainly about foreign policy under the pen name "AcademicElephant" at the Conservative blog RedState.
Her blog posts were read by aides of Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, who later recruited Coates to work as an advisor for his book, Known and Unknown: A Memoir, published in 2011.
Coates served as an advisor to former Texas governor Rick Perry during his 2012 presidential bid before she became an advisor to Ted Cruz in 2013 and his leading national security advisor during his 2016 presidential campaign.
Infer what you want to.
Fire them all and start over. Hell, I’d go work for him for the next 4 years.
Isnt she Balsey Ford?
Reassign her as the new WH NSC ombudsman to Alaska.
I guess I had the wrong Coates.
Is she related to Dan, I wonder. THAT’S who I thought it was.
What a nasty piece of work if she did that.
Admit it -- doncha kinda miss the Clinton days when it would be a 'suicide' in a park (no witnesses) or a plane crash in a foreign country?
If I understand, she was only promoted recently. Does this jibe with the claims from Anonymous?
Gotta admit - there's no thugs like democrat thugs... That said, 'reassigned' works for me... let's hope it's to some fun place like the Republic of Congo. Maybe she can give 'speeches' the democrat way to massive wealth.
“This is what Trump was referring to in the Anonymous quote..not Q.”
Don’t worry, we don’t need Trump to tell us not to trust Q, because that is patently obvious.
If she's a political appointee then why she been reassigned? Why isn't she being frog-marched out of the White House
She’s needs firing not reassigned.
She's a political appointee, not military or civil service. There is no reason why she can't be fired.
Lots of past “buzz” about Cruz’s campaign being subject to FISA warrant surveillance. Seems there was a CIA ^plant^ in his campaign...
