“‘Anonymous’ no more: Former DHS official Miles Taylor reveals he is writer of scathing Trump op-ed“
“Miles Taylor, the former Department of Homeland Security chief of staff who stepped forward in August to blast President Donald Trump’s leadership, said Wednesday he’s “Anonymous,” the senior administration official who wrote a scathing op-ed and book about the Trump White House.
“In a post on Medium entitled “Why I’m no longer Anonymous,” Taylor said he wrote the op-ed as a way to get the White House to focus on what he was saying about the danger he thought Trump posed to the country, instead of focusing on him.
“‘The decision wasn’t easy, I wrestled with it, and I understand why some people consider it questionable to levy such serious charges against a sitting president under the cover of anonymity.
