Vice President Pence said he was never part of discussions to remove President Trump from office and would take a lie-detector test "in a heartbeat" to prove that he was not the author of last week's anonymous New York Times op-ed, who claimed to be part of a resistance movement within the Trump administration. The op-ed writer claimed to be part of a "resistance" movement within the Trump administration that was working quietly behind the scenes to thwart the president's most risky impulses.
"If they have published an anonymous editorial that says that they are misrepresenting themselves, that they are essentially living a lie within this administration, and trying to frustrate and subvert the agenda of the president was elected to advance, that's an important issue", Pence said.

Trump, meanwhile, has denounced the Times opinion piece as "gutless" and its publication as a "disgrace" bordering on treason.
