Who is the anonymous author of the bombshell NYT op-ed? Prof thinks he’s found the answer

The New York Times published an anonymously written op-ed Wednesday from a person claiming to be a senior member of President Donald Trump's administration. The op-ed writer claimed to be part of a "resistance" whose mission is to "thwart parts of [Trump's] agenda and his worst inclinations."

On Thursday's episode of "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn and Stu Burguiere tossed around a few theories on the identity of the anonymous writer and the real purpose behind writing the Trump bashing op-ed.



After dismissing the trending theory that Vice President Mike Pence wrote the piece, they considered the more plausible idea that the anonymous writer was intentionally targeting Pence by using the word "lodestar" — a word the vice president uses publicly and often.

"If that would be true, then everything else this person wrote would be false," Glenn said. "Because Pence will be a moderating voice … so if you're trying to set Pence up or separate him from the president, you're not helping moderate things. You're trying to upset the apple cart because Pence is blocking you from your access or your point of view with the president."

Glenn was later joined by professor Matthew D. LaPlante, host of the "Undisciplined" show, who thinks he's figured out the real identity of the anonymous op-ed writer.
