Is Kellyanne Conway the anonymous WH staff member?

The one who has actually written at least one article in the NY Times exposing Trump.

I read this person will reveal his/herself this Fall.

She is leaving the WH soon, so it sort of adds up.

1. I don't think so.

Reading the book A WARNING, it seems to be someone with a background possibly in history and international relations and someone who works in one of the agencies, like DHS. Anonymous might already be out in the public eye, just not saying he/she is Anonymous. This sounds bad, but I don't think Conway is smart enough to write a book like "A WARNING." (I'll apologize if she turns out to be Anonymous)

Miles Taylor is a possibility. Like Anonymous, he claims to speak for a small group of "Others" who will come forward.

It's possible Anonymous has come forward, but just hasn't announced that he/she is Anonymous.

Someone else came forward this week too from DHS, a woman whose name I can't recall.

Some people think it's Kirstjen Nielsen. I was leaning towards Dan Coats, but now I'm having doubts.

EDIT: It's not necessarily "White House staff"; it's an official in the administration.

14. I played with the idea that Anonymous was Kellyanne

but I read the book A Warning and that was written by an intellectual with vast knowledge and understanding of history and world events. That's not Kellyanne. It is very likely it is someone we aren't even familiar with, though Miles Taylor is a possibility. I pictured someone older though, with more years of government experience.

I do believe Kellyanne does plan on writing a book, probably has already started it and I think that is the primary reason she stayed so long in this administration. Her book would probably read more like a tabloid expose. Now that she's going home to take care of "family issues", she can finish it up. If she doesn't hurry, she will miss her window of opportunity, as the market is being flooded with tell-all books, and there are only so many that people will read. I'm committed to maybe two more and then I think I'm done. The top of my list is Michael Cohen's book and then possibly "Melania and Me".

22. Yes, that occurred to me as well

The possibly Kellyanne would come home with the stories of what had transpired and George may have started keeping a record. Still, he's not quite what I pictured when reading the author's words.

Whoever it is, he/she (sounds rather male) is someone I could respect, but at the same time, disagree with profoundly when it comes to politics and domestic policy. This person does not like Democratic policies for the most part, but really seems to have a lot of experience in foreign policy, possibly someone who is or has worked in the State Department. He/she respects our institutions and plays by the book.

I wonder if anonymous is still working in the administration and if he/she plans to reveal their identity.

2. I've long suspected that she has an ulterior motive

So it wouldn't surprise me a bit.

15. Kellyanne

I remember she and her husband bought a $7MM home in the DC area a couple years back. Gotta make mortgage somehow. Her grandfather was an infamous mobster hit man in South Jersey. She grew up in her grandmother's house; grandad lived on the lam but visited a lot.

3. guessing not. but I guess we'll see.

My impression of Conway as a mouth piece -- is that she's a full on humper. If she's conflicted about any of this -- she does a real good job of suppressing it.

4. I have always thought so

Especially since her husband is a never-Trumper.

5. Probably...

... not. However, she has probably started - or completed - her own book... and, her aim will be to make Money; she will not be loyal to Crooked Donald. They are cut from the same cloth.

6. I no longer think so

She's contributed way too much to the damage, especially that speech the other night. She's fucking awful.

7. I wouldn't put it past her.

Previous statements of hers seem to contradict the views that she says she holds now. This position at the White House seems like a “marriage of convenience.“ I’m not saying she’s a hypocritical opportunist, but, well, yes I am.

9. She's leaving because her family life is falling apart

If your standard for Anonymous is "someone who left the Administration", well.....

10. My gut feeling is that Kelly is a Trojan horse in the trump Whitehouse.

Kelly and her husband are really of the same mind. They both hate trump.
She’s “faking it, to making it”.
Kelly and her husband will co author a book together when trump is through in November.

18. I think so too

The book is probably already mostly written.

23. She really did

BUT then again, so did everyone. The bottom line is no one really LIKES Trump. They fear him, they use him, but most of them truly hate him.

His deplorable base doesn't count, as they don't really know him and they are brainwashed.

11. I thinks she's as loyal to Trump as much as a grifter can be loyal to anyone.

They had a symbiotic relationship, which seems to be coming to an end.

I don't think Conway was Anonymous, but I could easily be proven wrong. "Anonymous" tried to project this aura of caring about the country; Conway doesn't give a damn about the U.S. and its people.

I would have even less respect for her. Which would be an achievement.

Otherwise Kellyanne was a good candidate

21. No, unless we see definite confirmation,

she's way too deplorable to deserve any benefit of the doubt. If she'd be opposed to Trump, she wouldn't have enabled him every step of the way since 2016 and more importantly, her daughter wouldn't find her so damn repulsive.

24. Wasn't it said that Anonymous was no longer working in the White House ?

And this was before Kellyanne decided to leave recently.

25. The way I figure it--if anonymous has left the WH

then he/she would be known by now.
