Does anyone know who said "In God we trust. All others we verify."?

We need this attribution for a book on nonproliferation that will be going to the printer this week. We can't seem to find it online or in any quotation reference books.

Thank you for any help you can provide!

Well brace yourself for a disappointment because you won't find one. That specific "quote" is not a quote, it is a "tagline," bumper sticker, etc.
It has it's roots in:

"Trust, and then verify."
~Russian proverb

Reagan got some mileage out of that one:

There is an old Russian proverb: Trust but verify.
~Ronald Reagan
"Doveryai, no proveryai - trust but verify."

In God we trust, all others we voice verify.

Then there's this variation:

"In God we trust. All others pay cash."

Thank you for your help in finding the "tagline" "In God we trust. All others we verify."

The book is on its way to the printer.
