Trump administration turncoat Victoria Coates

Trump Senior Official Turncoat Exposed

The White House has finally caught the turncoat. Since the day that a “senior official in the Trump administration” wrote the anonymous 2018 New York Times column declaring President Trump unfit for office, the White House has been hunting for the culprit.

The anonymous column, entitled “I Am Part of the Resistance Inside the Trump Administration”, elicited a lot of anger from Republicans, and joy from Democrats. Sources familiar with the internal probe told Real Clear Investigations that, after a lengthy search, the White House believes they have identified the mole: former deputy national security adviser Victoria Coates.

Turncoat Banished

Rather than firing Coates and making her actions public, the Trump administration has decided they don’t need the bad press just before an election. Instead, Coates has been quietly transferred to the Department of Energy, where she awaits a special assignment in Saudi Arabia — far away from Trump.

The president demoted the turncoat to her new position just four months after promoting her to the number two spot on the National Security Council. According to Real Clear Investigations, this move was made “amid a whisper campaign” which started in January, that identified Coates as “Anonymous.”

Using her “Anonymous” alias, Coates penned the Times op-ed, and a book titled “A Warning,” and claimed that she was a member of a group of “fellow Republicans” who are actively resisting President Trump from inside the administration.

Catching a mole

Real Clear Investigations interviewed several people who either have direct knowledge of, or were directly involved in, the investigation of Coates. Each of these sources gave information about different pieces of evidence that ultimately led to identifying Anonymous. The strongest evidence involved computer textual analysis, which revealed “strikingly similar language, turns of phrase, and historical references by both Coates and Anonymous,” according to RCI.

RCI cited other pieces of evidence, such as first-hand accounts of events written by Anonymous, which were only witnessed by Coates and others who were eventually ruled out as suspects; Coates’ history of writing anonymously; and “the fact that Coates and Anonymous share a high-profile Washington literary agent with an author roster of disaffected ex-Trump officials.”

Sources told RCI that to uncover the identity of the turncoat, investigators ran Coates’ previously published works through forensic author identification programs, which showed that “they matched the prose style of Anonymous.” The sentence structure, grammar, syntax, and punctuation matched as well.


Though Anonymous’ book “A Warning” starts with a preemptive denial of any classified information being revealed in the text, RCI stated that the Department of Justice is “looking into a potential violation of a federal regulation requiring officials with access to classified information to get prior approval before publishing books about their roles in the government.” Coates signed a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) in 2017 when she joined the White House.

Investigators are currently looking into at least four other members of White House staff whom they believe joined with Coates in her “resistance.”

More investigation details have emerged

President Trump declared the op-ed an act of “treason,” and called for an investigation to catch the “gutless” official. After the president’s statements, the White House came up with a list of suspects. A lack of leads in the investigation led to the matter going unsolved for more than a year, until November 2019, when the turncoat’s book “A Warning” was released.

The book dared the administration to try and unmask the author, bragging that it had been “carefully written to prevent any inadvertent disclosure.” Instead of getting frustrated, the White House chose to take the challenge, viewing the book as 260 pages of clues.

Coates was not on the list of suspects as the turncoat at first, as she seemed to go along with the president and his policies, but after months and the elimination of more than 30 other suspects, investigators had her at the top of the list. Unlike other suspects, such as NSC official Fiona Hill, Coates “checked virtually all the boxes,” according to RCI.

Real Clear Investigations reported that, “After a careful deconstruction of details in the book, the White House investigators found that Coates’s profile, as well as her persona as a highly opinionated moralist, matched up with that of the clandestine Trump official.”

Investigators concluded that Anonymous was a woman by the author’s disapproving comments claiming that President Trump had a habit of addressing “accomplished female professionals” as “sweetie” and “honey.”

They noted that the turncoat’s area of expertise was very similar to Coates’: national security and foreign policy, with a focus on Syria, Iraq, Iran, Israel, and other Middle Eastern areas. Anonymous also wrote that they had been present at many specific meetings in the White House, including with the president, just as Coates was. The writing showed an insider’s understanding of the National Security Council, and also revealed that the author started their job during Trump’s presidential transition, as Coates did.

“That gave her away. She was in those early meetings and briefings. That put her high on the suspect list,” a source involved in the investigation said.

Her friends have tried to vouch for her, to no avail

Coates declined to discuss the matter on the record with RCI, and instead has retained an attorney. Several of her colleagues have defended her, claiming that the White House has the wrong person.

Trump’s first deputy national security adviser, K.T. McFarland, denies that Coates could be the turncoat. “The suggestion that Victoria is ‘Anonymous’ is preposterous,” said McFarland, who helped recruit Coates to the National Security Council, and supervised her for much of 2017.

“Victoria herself has denied being ‘Anonymous’ during her routine security clearance review. Anyone familiar with the security clearance process knows that it would have been a criminal offense, punishable by jail time, for her to lie about this,” McFarland continued.

One source involved in the internal probe said there was no doubt Coates was the turncoat, saying: “It’s her. That’s why she was shown the door.”

Even though Coates and her friends have tried to deny it, the evidence is too strong. Though it was never officially announced, President Trump dropped a hint.

When speaking with reporters two days before Coates was reassigned on February 20, the president said that he knew the identity of Anonymous, but would not say anything else on the subject.

“Can’t tell you that, but I know who it is. I know all about ‘Anonymous,’” Trump said.
