The literary agents representing the author of A Warning are planning to issue a public statement refuting rumors about his/her identity.
Politico obtained an advance copy of Javelin co-founder Matt Latimer’s upcoming statement, which denies that deputy national security adviser Victoria Coates is the book's anonymous author.
A Warning claims to provide an insider’s look at the Trump administration, though many reviewers noted that it overpromised and underdelivered.
Javelin, according to Politico, had planned not to comment on rumors about Anonymous’s identity, whether to confirm or deny, but decided it was necessary in this case because of “truly bizarre circumstances.”
Those circumstances? That the speculation about Coates and the lack of evidence could cost her her job — and are in fact intended to — in Latimer’s words.
