Ex-Homeland Security Official Outs Himself as ‘Anonymous’ Anti-Trump Author; Trump Says Taylor ‘Should Be Prosecuted’; Supporters Shout ‘Drain the Swamp’ as Trump Mocks ‘Anonymous’ Nobody, New York Times

By NPR. Miles Taylor, the former chief of staff at the Department of Homeland Security, has revealed himself to be “Anonymous,” the author of a New York Times op-ed and book critical of the Trump presidency.

“To be clear, writing those works was not about eminence (they were published without attribution), not about money (I declined a hefty monetary advance and pledged to donate the bulk of the proceeds), and not about crafting a score-settling ‘tell all’ (my focus was on the President himself and his character, not denigrating former colleagues),” Taylor wrote in a Medium post.

“Nevertheless, I made clear I wasn’t afraid to criticize the President under my name.”

Taylor, in media interviews as recently as August, denied being “Anonymous.” (Read more from “Ex-Homeland Security Official Outs Himself as ‘Anonymous’ Anti-Trump Author” HERE)

Trump Says Miles Taylor ‘Should Be Prosecuted’ After Reveal as ‘Anonymous’ Administration Critic

By Fox News. President Trump called Wednesday night for former Department of Homeland Security chief of staff Miles Taylor to face prosecution after he revealed himself as “Anonymous,” the former senior administration official who authored a New York Times op-ed criticizing the presidency in 2018.

Trump took aim at Taylor during a campaign rally in Goodyear, Ariz., referring to him as a “low-level staffer, a sleazebag, who’s never worked in the White House.” Taylor revealed his identity as “Anonymous” in a blog post on Wednesday afternoon.

“The whole thing was just one more giant hoax from the Washington swamp and a corrupt special interest group,” Trump said at the rally. “I’ll tell you what – this guy, in my opinion, should be prosecuted. He should be prosecuted. The left wing media and the swamp are doing everything in their power to try to stop us.”

Supporters Shout ‘Drain the Swamp’ as Donald Trump Mocks ‘Anonymous’ Nobody, New York Times

By Breitbart. President Donald Trump ridiculed The New York Times after the “Anonymous” administration “insider” Miles Tayor revealed his identity on Wednesday. . .

“You know where he works now? He works at CNN, can you believe it?” Trump chuckled.

The president joked that after the New York Times published the op-ed, he was concerned that the “anonymous” official could have been a high-level source like his top advisers Hope Hicks or even his son-in-law Jared Kushner or even a Senator like Mike Lee (R-UT) or Rand Paul (R-KY). . .

Trump also mocked Taylor for taking a job with Google after he left the administration.

“Isn’t that nice?” he asked sarcastically, recalling that the Justice Department was suing Google for antitrust behavior. (Read more from “Supporters Shout ‘Drain the Swamp’ as Donald Trump Mocks ‘Anonymous’ Nobody, New York Times” HERE)
