Thursday on his nationally syndicated radio program, LevinTV host Mark Levin discussed the New York Times’ anonymous op-ed, which the paper claimed was written by a member of the Trump administration. The writer claimed that he or she is working against the president’s agenda, with others in the administration.

“When a president is undermined from within, it is very difficult for that branch of government to function as it should, even with all the successes,” Levin said.

Levin pointed out that the number of people on whom the president can rely is getting increasingly small, since so many in the administration would rather seek self-promotion in the media.

“If there are people around the president who never have a negative story written about them, or never have any story written about them and they’re relatively senior … chances are they’re leakers,” he said.


“And of course, any successes that the president has had is not due to him; it’s in spite of him. So in other words, the president can’t win. Even when he makes decisions, they’re not really his decisions, you know. They’re the staff’s decisions. … This is a mutiny. This is sabotage. This is a silent coup, and I’ve been talking about it since day one,” Levin said.
