Rumors are swirling about the identity of the person who wrote an op-ed in the New York Times claiming that US President Donald Trump faces resistance from within the White House.
There are no neatly fitting historic parallels to the anonymous opinion piece by a senior Trump official published in The New York Times. However, there are indicators to help explain why this scandal is so significant.
Former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani has emerged as favorite to become the next Secretary of State. He is known for his hard-line law-and-order views and brusque manner.
In a move worthy of the former businessman himself, former spy Valerie Plame Wilson is trying to purchase a controlling stake in Twitter so she can ban the US president from the platform - and maybe save the world.
