research." lieutenant governor gavin newsom leads republican businessman john cox 44 percent to 39 percent. 17 percent now say they are undecided. senator dianne feinstein leads progressive challenger kevin de leo"n 37 percent to 29. with 34 percent undecided. the white house.. and the media.. are obsessed with figuring out who wrote that "new york times" op/ed. scott mcgrew.. a long list of denials. pence pompeo coats nielsen mattis mulvaney carson mnuchin ..just a few of the people who said it wasn )t me. none of thoe people will admit to writing the op/ed that questioned whether the president was competant.. and revealed his white house staff was actively working to undermine some of his more irrational orders. donald trump was in montana last night.. at a rather subdued rally by trump standards. he addressed the new york times issue.. calling the author a coward.. and saying.. he feels perfectly competant.
5:47 am
the president also said he would not shut down the government at the end of the month.. in order to get his wall. part of the danger of trying to figure out who wrote the op/ed is we then dont ) take tie to consider how serious the charges in the op/ed are. a senior white house official says the cabinet has at least considered the president is not fit to lead.. and his staff is undermining him to protect the country. the other problem with asking officials if they wrote it.. is of course they )re going to deny it. remember mark felt.. the deputy director of the fbi.. who denied over and over and over he was deep-throat. we now know felt was deep throat. we )ll start the fourth day of hearings for brett kavanaugh are underway this morning. yesterday )s hearing took an odd twist after new jersey
