U.S. secretary of defense did not write anonymous New York Times op-ed: spokeswoman

NEW DELHI (Reuters) - The U.S. defense secretary on Thursday became the latest high-profile administration official to deny penning an anonymous column published in the New York Times in which the author claimed to be part a group working within the Trump administration to thwart the president.

“It was not his op-ed,” Pentagon spokeswoman Dana White said.
