Trump should give a lie detector test on the anonymous op-ed's content, not its authorship

It is interesting to note how many of President Donald Trump's cronies have stepped forward to deny writing the anonymous op-ed piece in The New York Times but how few have denied the accuracy of the piece (“Pence: I’m confident no one on my staff wrote the NYT column,” Sept. 9). President Trump has suggested lie detector tests, and Vice President Mike Pence has volunteered to take one.

An ideal solution would be to request that everyone be given a lie detector test with the caveat that one of the questions asked would be: “Do you agree with the assertions made by this anonymous author?" Seeing how few or how many would agree to take the test would tell us a great deal more than learning the identity of the anonymous contributor.
