Ex-DHS staffer Miles Taylor reveals himself as anti-Trump author ‘Anonymous’ after previous denials

The former aide is now a CNN contributor

Former Department of Homeland Security staffer Miles Taylor declared Wednesday that he is “Anonymous,” the secret alleged “senior Trump administration official” who penned a New York Times op-ed and subsequent book criticizing President Donald Trump.

Taylor, now a contributor at CNN, recently denied to his current employer on multiple occasions that he was “Anonymous.”

Cooper then asked directly, “You’re not anonymous?”

“I wear a mask for two reasons, Anderson,” Taylor replied, “Halloweens and pandemics. So, no.”

Following Taylor’s announcement, several critics hit out at the New York Times for misleading readers by giving the impression that “Anonymous” was a “senior administration official.” Axios reporter Jonathan Swantweeted, “I also didn’t realize the definition of ‘senior administration official’ could be *this* expansive. Wasn’t even an agency chief of staff at the time the op-ed ran.”

Steve Krakauer, executive producer of Megyn Kelly’s podcast, tweeted, “Let’s be perfectly clear – the ONLY reason the New York Times would grant a middle level staffer who no one in the world had heard of anonymity to write that column is because they wanted to deceive readers into thinking it was someone of significantly more prominence.”

White House press secretary Kaleigh McEnany issued a statement saying:

“President Trump is focused on leading the great American comeback and keeping his promises to the American people. This low-level, disgruntled former staffer is a liar and a coward who chose anonymity over action and leaking over leading. He was ineffective and incompetent during his time as DHS Chief of Staff which is why he was promptly fired after only serving in this role for a matter of weeks. It is appalling a low-ranking official would be granted anonymity and it is clear the New York Times is doing the bidding of Never-Trumpers and Democrats. The American people elected President Trump to carry out his vision for the country, not an arrogant deep state operative trying to put their agenda ahead of the President’s America First policies.”
