There are plenty of ways to describe the allegations and activity described within a recent New York Times op-ed with supposed White House ties.
“Sabotage” is a word that seems to be sticking. After all, we are talking about admitted obstruction of Presidential business, with staffers proudly boasting about removing documents from the desk of the President when he’s not looking to ensure that he doesn’t see them.
The other, kinder term, is “resistance”, and has been the catchall verbiage for the actions of the radical left as of late.

To Mike Pompeo, however, it doesn’t matter under which flag this revolt flies…it will always be unacceptable.
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said in an interview with Fox News to air Sunday that officials not on board with helping to achieve President Trump’s mission “ought to find something else to do.”
Pompeo was asked by “Fox News Sunday” host Chris Wallace about a New York Times report that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein last year suggested secretly recording President Trump to expose chaos in the White House and enlisting Cabinet members to invoke the 25th Amendment to remove him from office.
“I’m not going to comment on that in any way, other than to say this: I’ve been pretty clear since my beginning of service here in this administration, if you can’t be on the team, if you’re not supporting this mission, then maybe you ought to find something else to do,” he said.
“I’ve told that to my senior colleagues, I’ve told it to junior folks at the CIA, and the State Department; we need everyone who’s engaged in helping achieve President Trump’s mission,” he said. “And I hope that everyone in every agency: DOJ, FBI, State Department is on that mission.”
And what about Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s recently revealed plan to oust the Commander in Chief?
Asked if wiring the president and talking about the 25th Amendment was “not being on the team,” Pompeo said: “Not remotely.”
Now, whether or not any of these “resistance” renegades will heed Pompeo’s warning is another story altogether.
