>> Trace: IS THIS THE MOST WHISPERED ABOUT MAN IN WASHINGTON, THE ANONYMOUS WRITER BEHIND THE OP-ED AND NEW BOOK, STAY TUNED BECAUSE I'M ABOUT TO ASK HIM DIRECTLY EARLIER TODAY, THE NEW REPUBLIC PUBLISHED A PIECE CLAIMING THE RETIRED NAVY COMMANDER MAY HAVE WRITTEN THE ANONYMOUS TELL-ALL BOOK CALLED A WARNING ABOUT THET BOOK CALLED A WARNING ABOUT THEE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION

HERE IS WHAT WE KNOW THE AUTHOR OF THE BOOK SAYS HE OR SHE WAS A SENIOR OFFICIAL WITHIN THE ADMINISTRATION AND THE SAME PERSON WHO WROTE AN ANONYMOUS OP-ED IN "THE NEW YORK TIMES" MORE THAN A YEAR AGO IN THAT OP-ED, THE WRITER CLAIMS SENIOR STAFFERS INSIDE THE ADMINISTRATION WERE WORKING AGAINST PRESIDENT TRUMP WE NEVER FOUND OUT WHO THE WRITER IS BUT TODAY, WE HEARD FROM THE MAN WHO ONCE CORRECTLY NAMED THE AUTHOR OF PRIMARY COLORS ABOUT PRESIDENT CLINTON 1992 CAMPAIGN TODAY, HE WRITES MY ENTRY IN THE GUESS WHO WROTE IT SWEEPSTAKES IS THE FORMER PENTAGON AID WHO WOULD KNOW ABOUT MANY EVENTS DESCRIBED IN THE BOOK

HE WOULD HAVE HONORABLE REASONS TO RENDER HIS JUDGMENT AND REVEALING THE AUTHOR TO BE IN A POLITICAL NAVY OFFICER, NOT A RENEGADE REPUBLICAN OPERATIVE WOULD ELEVATE THE NATURE OF HIS VERY SERIOUS CONCERNS ABOUT TRUMP'S FITNESS TO HOLD THE OFFICE OF THE PRESIDENCY HE IS A RETIRED NAVAL COMMANDER AND DEFENSE SECRETARY JAMES MATTIS' COMMUNICATIONS DIRECTOR AND CHIEF SPEECHWRITER HE TWEETED OUT THE NEW REPUBLIC ARTICLE TODAY COMMENTING THIS WORLD CONTINUES AND NOW, HE IS HERE, ALSO THE AUTHOR OF HOLDING THE LINE AND IF YOU LOOK AT THIS ARTICLE, THANK YOU FOR JOINING US, WE APPRECIATE IT IF YOU LOOK AT THE ARTICLE, THE AUTHOR HITS ALL THE HIGH POINTS HE MAKES A VERY GOOD CASE AND THE QUESTION IS, ARE YOU ANONYMOUS? >> GREAT QUESTION

I HAVE A BOOK OUT WITH MY NAME ON IT CALLED HOLDING THE LINE I DO APPRECIATE THE NEW REPUBLICS OF THE WRITING WAS EXCELLENT ACROSS BOTH BOOKS BUT I WOULD COME INTO THE STUDIO WITH YOU IN NEW YORK CITY >> Trace: SO YOU ARE NOT DENYING THAT YOU ARE ANONYMOUS, YOU ARE SAYING THIS IS NOT THE PROPER VENUE TO MAKE THAT STATEMENT, AM I HEARING YOU PROPERLY? >> I HEARD THIS AS I WAS COMING OVER TO THE STUDIO AND THERE IS A LOT OF TALK ABOUT THERE >> Trace: THERE WAS A LOT OF TALK ABOUT BUT ALSO A LOT TO TALK ABOUT HERE AND I AM CURIOUS BECAUSE WHY NOT JUST DENY IT OUTRIGHT? YOU SAID YOU JUST HEARD ABOUT IT ON YOUR WAY TO THE STUDIO BUT YOU SENT OUT THE TWEET TODAY NOT REALLY DENYING IT, KIND OF SAYING THIS WORLD CONTINUES, WHAT DID YOU MEAN BY THAT? >> IS THE LATEST IN A LONG SERIES OF DC

PARLOR GAMES, NOT UNIQUE TO THIS POINT IN TIME, IT'S BEEN GOING ON FOR DECADES AND I LIKE MANY OF YOUR VIEWERS READ THE ANONYMOUS OP-ED FROM LAST YEAR, SO IT IS INTERESTING I WENT AHEAD AND RETWEETED OUT THE STORY BECAUSE IT CAUGHT MY EYE AND SOMEONE PUT IT ON MY RADAR >> Trace: I WANT TO PUT THIS ON THE SCREEN BECAUSE THE AUTHOR WAS SAYING HE DID THIS AND I AM QUOTING HERE, FOR LINGUISTICS MAVENS WITH A PENCHANT FOR ANALYSIS USES SEVERAL WORDS THAT WOULD BE FAMILIAR TO PILOTS WITH A LITERARY BENT AND SHARES THE SAME LITERARY AGENCY JAVELIN WITH ANONYMOUS YOUR COMMENTS ABOUT THAT? >> I CAN'T REMEMBER USING LODESTAR A SINGLE TIME SO THE ANALYSIS MAY BE BREAKING DOWN A LITTLE BIT

>> Trace: WE KNOW THAT ANONYMOUS REALLY HASN'T SOLD VERY WELL, SO THE SALES ARE GREAT YOU ARE COMING OUT WITH A NEW BOOK, A LOT OF PEOPLE OUT THERE SAYING THIS IS A GREAT PLATFORM TO PROMOTE HIS NEW BOOK GOT A NEW BOOK COMING OUT CALLED HOLDING THE LINE, INSIDE DRUMS PENTAGON WITH SECRETARY MATTIS, SO HAS THAT COMING OUT OF WHAT A GREAT PLATFORM TO BE ABLE TO SAY FROM THE NEXT WEEK OR SO WHILE I'M NOT MAKING ANY KIND OF CLAIMS, I'M NOT GOING TO SAY ANYTHING >> TO HAVE A PLATFORM LIKE THAT WOULD SOMEHOW IMPLY THAT I HAD SOMETHING TO DO WITH SETTING US ALL UP AND ARRANGING IT AND AS YOU TAKE A LOOK AT THE CURRENT DAY, THE REPORTING RIGHT BEFORE WE WERE TALKING ABOUT THIS ANONYMOUS CONNECTION IS ALL ABOUT THE RESIGNATION OF SECRETARY SPENCER FOR WE DON'T KNOW WHAT THE TRUTH IS THEY ARE BUT YOU CAN ALREADY SEE THIS INCREASINGLY POLITICIZED ENVIRONMENT AND HOW IT IS DRUG THE MILITARY INTO THAT ARENA BUT IS A VERY DANGEROUS PLACE FOR US TO BE

WE HAVE TO BE FOCUSED ON NATIONAL SECURITY AND FOCUSED ON THE EXTERNAL THREATS FACING AMERICA >> Trace: I'M CURIOUS, WHEN YOU TALK ABOUT THE EDDIE GALLAGHER CASE HERE MOBILE WOULD BE YOUR OPINION AND HE FLEW F-18'S, THIS IS RESERVED FOR THE BEST OF THE BEST THE NAVY SHOULD JUST FOLLOW THAT ORDER, END OF STORY? >> I WOULD AGREE WITH YOU THERE WHEN HE IS DIRECTED THAT CHIEF GALLAGHER WOULD BE REAL AND STATED THAT HE WILL RETAIN HIS TRIDENT, THEY WERE CERTAINLY ELEMENTS WERE PRESIDENT TRUMP AS EVERY RIGHT TO SAY THIS IS THE OUTCOME I WANT TO SEE NATURALLY, IS A SELECTIVE APPLICATION OF JUSTICE IF YOU ARE A SERVICE MEMBER WHO CAN THE PRESIDENT TSAI OR HIS EAGER, YOU HAVE A DIFFERENT OUTCOME OF A PROFESSIONAL THAT NEEDS TO GO THROUGH THE FORMAL SYSTEM'S THERE'S A LOT OF QUESTIONS HERE BUT THESE ARE A DISTRACTION, A SIDESHOW FROM WHAT WE ARE REALLY CONCERNED ABOUT WITCHES IMPLEMENTATION OF PRESIDENT TRUMP'S NATIONAL DEFENSE STRATEGY AND MAKING SURE WE ARE PROTECTING AMERICA'S INTEREST BOTH AT HOME AND ABROAD

>> Trace: WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST CONCERN? YOU SAY THERE IS A LIST OF THEM BUT WHAT ARE WE FOCUSING ON HERE? AT A GALLOWS EDDIE GALLA AT A GALLOWS EDDIE GALLH AT A GALLOWS EDDIE GALLR AT A GALLOWS EDDIE GALLA DISTRACTION, WHAT SHOULD WE BE FOCUSING ON? >> THE INCREASED POLITICIZATION OF THE MILITARY JUST LIKE PREVIOUSLY, THE CIA, FBI, OTHER GOVERNMENT ENTITIES WHICH HAVE HAD A LONG-STANDING A POLITICAL REPUTATION BEING DRUG INTO THIS POLITICAL FUROR IS A VERY POLITICALLY CHARGED AND POLARIZED TIME RIGHT NOW SO THAT'S ONE CONCERN WHEN YOU THINK ABOUT IF YOU ARE AN ADVERSARY, A COMPETITOR OF THE UNITED STATES WEATHER CHINA, RUSSIA, NORTH KOREA, IRAN, YOU ARE LOVING WHAT YOU ARE SEEING RIGHT NOW

GETTING BACK TO THOSE BASICS ON THE FUNDAMENTALS OF BEING FOCUSED ON NATIONAL SECURITY >> Trace: YOU SERVED IN THE WHITE HOUSE AT THE SAME TIME AS ANONYMOUS DO YOU THINK YOU SHOULD REMAIN THIS PERSON, SHOULD REMAIN ANONYMOUS OR SHOULD COME OUT AND SAY THIS IS A PROBLEM AND JUST BE FORTHRIGHT WITH IT, YOUR THOUGHTS ON THAT >> I THOUGHT IT WAS INCREDIBLY IMPORTANT TO HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY THAT I DID TO SHARE MY EXPERIENCE SERVING ALONGSIDE SECRETARY MATTIS, WHAT I WITNESSED AS I SERVED FOR A YEAR AND A HALF ON HIS TEAM SO THAT'S WHY HE FELT IT WAS IMPORTANT TO PUT THAT EXPERIENCE OUT SOME AMERICANS COULD READ AND CONSIDER FOR THEMSELVES A FACT BUT ALSO PUT MY NAME TO IT SO THAT'S WHERE I STAND >> Trace: NOT SAYING ONE WAY OR ANOTHER JUST WANT TO SAY BACK
