The identity of an anonymous op-ed writer, who claimed in the New York Times in 2018 to be a part of a resistance effort within the Trump administration, has confounded Washington for well over a year, and with a new book now out by “Anonymous,” entitled “A Warning,” questions over who it might be have only compounded people’s curiosities.
While reading an article from The Atlantic by George Conway, former Nixon aide John Dean said he had suspicions that it might be him and wife Kellyanne Conway, who serves as Senior Counselor to President Donald Trump.
“Reading this piece while reading ‘A Warning’ by Anonymous strongly suggests Anonymous is a collaboration of Kellyanne and George Conway. Similar style,” Dean wrote in a tweet on Wednesday afternoon.
On Thursday morning, George Conway responded to Dean’s allegations in four short words, which seemingly demonstrated he wished it was true.
“I wish. But no,” the conservative lawyer wrote.

Although Conway denies that either he or his wife are “Anonymous,” it appears that both he and the author have the same worries about Trump, particularly when it comes to his mental ability to run the nation.
In The Atlantic article that Dean cited, George Conway expressed his concerns that Trump clearly, in his mind, was not mentally fit to be president. “You don’t need to be a weatherman to know which way the wind blows, and you don’t need to be a mental-health professional to see that something’s very seriously off with Trump,” he said.
As prior reporting from HillReporter.com has noted, “Anonymous” has voiced the same qualms about the president. “He stumbles, slurs, gets confused, is easily irritated, and has trouble synthesizing information, not occasionally but with regularity,” they wrote. Trump “also can’t remember what he’s said or been told,” the author pointed out.
While George Conway has been a vociferous opponent of Trump’s presidency for quite some time now, Kellyanne Conway continues to be an ardent supporter of the president, and has been critical of her husband’s concerns in public interviews.
