Anonymous Author To Hold Online “Ask Me Anything”

A rather fascinating stunt:

“Anonymous,” the senior Trump administration official who wrote the blockbuster New York Times op-ed that was turned into a bestselling book, will make a public appearance of sorts — albeit online with an undisclosed identity for now, according to a person close to the author.

The author of “A Warning” is hosting a Reddit “Ask Me Anything” for an hour starting at 7 p.m. Eastern on Tuesday night to let the public ask questions of the author.

The appearance is “the first opportunity for Anonymous to respond to questions about their decision to keep their identity secret, reactions to the book, the impeachment hearings, and to make an announcement regarding the 2020 election,” Sean Desmond, publisher of Twelve, said in a statement.
