An anonymous senior White House official whom President Donald Trump slammed last year after writing an op-ed in The New York Times has authored a new book on the administration that is to be published next month, according to news reports Tuesday.
The book is entitled "A Warning" and will be published Nov. 19 by Twelve, a division of the Hachette Book Group, reports CNN, which obtained a copy of the book's cover.
The author will remain anonymous — and "elaborate precautions have been taken to protect the author's identity," sources told the cable network.
The publisher and the author's literary agents at the Javelin agency received verification the author also wrote the Times op-ed, "I Am Part of the Resistance Inside the Trump Administration," published Sept. 5, 2018.
Trump responded to the piece in a one-word tweet: "TREASON?"
According to a draft news release quoted by CNN, the new book would be "picking up from where those first words of warning left off, this explosive book offers a shocking, first-hand account of President Trump and his record."
Sean Desmond, Twelve's editorial director, told CNN: "It's an honor and a privilege to publish this book.
"This is serious stuff and this is a serious warning about our president."
Matt Latimer, Javelin's cofounder, said the author "refused the chance at a seven-figure advance" to write the book and planned to "donate a substantial amount of any royalties to the White House Correspondents Association and other organizations that fight for a free press that seeks the truth."
Latimer told CNN that the book "was not written by the author lightly, or for the purpose of financial enrichment.
"It has been written as an act of conscience and of duty."
He declined to comment on whether the author was still in the Trump administration — and a Twelve representative did not respond to a CNN request for comment.
