NY Times: Trump Considering Sworn Affidavits for '12 Suspects'

NY Times: Trump Considering Sworn Affidavits for '12 Suspects'

In a bizarre game of White House whack a mole, the Trump administration is weighing some unprecedented measures to expose the "resistance" member embedded among senior officials – a reported list of about 12 suspects – including requiring signing sworn affidavits to use in court, The New York Times reported Thursday.

An outside adviser to the Trump administration told the Times the White House has compiled a list of "a list of about 12 suspects."

The Times reported a source close to President Donald Trump said the commander in chief was "asking senior officials to sign sworn affidavits that could be used in court if necessary."

There was also reportedly at least some discussions of presidential advisers submitting to a polygraph.

Subjecting senior administration officials to lie detector tests like the FBI and CIA does is also "acceptable," said Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., according to CNN.

"I think it's not unprecedented for people with security clearances to be asked to, whether or not they were revealing things against the law under oath and also by lie detector," Sen. Paul said.

"We use a lie detector test routinely for CIA agents and FBI agents. I think if you have a security clearance in the White House, I think it would be acceptable to use a lie detector test and ask people whether they are talking to the media against the policy of the White House."

Most of President Trump's Cabinet members have already publicly rebuked the writer of The New York Times op-ed, even if they did not explicitly deny having been the author.
