In a rare instance, The New York Times published an anonymous op-ed by a "senior official" in the Trump administration. The unnamed author claimed to be a part of the "resistance" within the administration who have been “working diligently" to "thwart parts of" President Trump's agenda. The president called the editorial "gutless" and "a disgrace," and the press secretary issued a statement asking the official to resign. At this point, no one except the Times knows the identity of the writer, but that hasn't stopped the guessing-game. Here's everything you need to know about the piece, the controversy, and the reactions.
