Deputy national security adviser Victoria Coates may be reassigned to the Department of Energy amid rumors that she is reportedly the author of the infamous New York Times anonymous op-ed.

Top officials from President Donald 's administration are reportedly discussing Coates' reassignment, according to a report from Axios.

The possible move comes just weeks after Coates was accused of being behind the Times article, 'I Am Part of the Resistance Inside the Administration,' that was published in September 2018, as well as a book titled, A Warning, that was released in November 2019. 

Sources claimed that Coates had begun to fear for her job despite being recently promoted by national security adviser Robert O’Brien.

However, Coates, who is a former aide to Republican Sen Ted Cruz, isn't known to disagree with 's foreign policies, which doesn't make her a good fit for Anonymous. Coates, who is an art historian, is a political appointee to the administration.

Earlier this month, book agents for A Warning denied rumors that Coates is Anonymous. 

'To be very clear so there is no chance of any misunderstanding: Dr Coates is not Anonymous,' Matt Latimer, the co-founder of literary agency Javelin, told Politico. 

'She does not know who Anonymous is. We have never discussed Anonymous or the book, A Warning, with her prior to its publication. She did not write it, edit it, see it in advance, know anything about it, or as far as we know ever read it,' he said in a statement.
