Former Secretary of State John Kerry responded Wednesday night to the explosive New York Times op-ed alleging a “quiet resistance” inside the Trump administration actively working to thwart the president’s agenda.
“It scares the hell out of me,” Mr. Kerry told comedian Stephen Colbert on “The Late Show.”
“First of all, there is a reassurance,” he added. “It means that for James Buchanan, he’s no longer the worst president.”
A senior Trump administration official who was granted anonymity by The Times penned an op-ed Wednesday claiming to be part of a group of individuals “working diligently from within” to sabotage parts of the president’s agenda and “his worst inclinations.” The piece has roiled the Trump administration, prompting Vice President Mike Pence, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats to deny any involvement.
Mr. Kerry, who has not yet ruled out a 2020 presidential run, said the allegations are “really serious.” He also referenced an explosive claim in Bob Woodward’s upcoming book, “Fear: Trump in the White House,” that alleges Trump aides went so far as to steal multiple documents off the president’s desk in order to protect the country from his most dangerous impulses.
