"SNIP.....

Former FBI special agent Josh Campbell suggested on Twitter that Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen’s resignation letter bears a striking resemblance to the New York Times op-ed written by an anonymous senior administration official who said they were part of a “resistance” working to undermine Trump’s worst impulses from within.

Campbell added that his theory would also fit with CNN reporting that Nielsen felt Trump had become “unhinged” on issues concerning the border.

.....SNIP"

2. If it's her, she has failed her mission to protect us...

"I work for the president but like-minded colleagues and I have vowed to thwart parts of his agenda and his worst inclinations."
Good job thwarting!

7. If it was her, she was only one person in a struggle with the Devil. And not just the Devil but a

Devil who was also a racist and someone who had no respect for women. So I don't think she had a chance if she is the mystery person. Personally, I wouldn't have went to work for the SOB knowing what we all knew about him before he began putting together his administration. I could no more work for someone as ignorant as he is, with no character and no scruples, than I could work for the Devil himself.

If she was able to thwart his actions in any way, than I would say, "Thank you for you for your service."

4. An account on Twitter claiming to be a WH insider is saying the same thing

That Nielsen was trying to protect the country from Trump's worst instincts. But she failed.

8. He's fired all the grown ups

Rachel had a good article on how his last 2 Federal Reserve nominees show that there are no grownups in the room anymore.

She did detestable things in his name and it will probably come out over the next week they weren't nearly as detestable as he asked her to do so in her mind she was compromising in some way.

I think after the Generals resigned or were asked to resign the group represented in the letter realized they didn't have a prayer in stopping his worst impulses.
