Former Department of Homeland Security official Miles Taylor on Wednesday revealed himself as “Anonymous,” the author of an op-ed vowing resistance to President Trump.

Taylor — who had previously denied he was “Anonymous” — triggered intense speculation about the identity fo the disguntled staffer in September 2018 when he anonymously boasted of “working diligently from within to frustrate parts of [Trump’s] agenda and his worst inclinations.”

Taylor, a paid CNN contributor since last month, was DHS chief of staff for less than a year and left the department in November 2019. He anonymously wrote the book, “A Warning,” last year.

Taylor’s LinkedIn profile says he’s on leave from Google, where he works as US Lead for Advanced Technology and Security Strategy.

Washington gossip for years swirled about the person’s identity and many Trump officials denied they were Anonymous.

Vice President Mike Pence, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley publicly denied writing the initial op-ed in the New York Times.

Taylor tweeted Wednesday, “Donald Trump is a man without character. It’s why I wrote “A Warning”…and it’s why me & my colleagues have spoken out against him (in our own names) for months. It’s time for everyone to step out of the shadows.”

In August, Taylor denied in a CNN interview that he was the author, after he cut an anti-Trump ad for the group Republican Voters Against Trump.

“I wear a mask for two things, Anderson: Halloween and pandemics. So, no,” Taylor told CNN anchor Anderson Cooper.

Many Trump allies speculated that The Times granted anonymity to someone who wasn’t a household name and noted a “senior official” could me hundreds of people.

Miles was not widely known in Washington during his less than one-year role as chief of staff to then-DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen and then-acting secretary Chad Wolf.

Neither Google nor CNN had an immediate comment on Taylor.

    This from a p.o.s. that did not have the backbone to face his enemies head on with any facts that he may have….but supports the likes of e-mail Killery and China Joe…Taylor is such a “man of character”….lol

    He’s a young kid. Hardly an elder statesman, as suggested by the media.

  • Ray says:

    The Dems hire people based on whether they are willing to lie, cheat, and kill to further the Leftists agenda so it is no wonder that this sniveling traitor is a cowardly POS. He claims Trump has no character! Dems need to stop projecting and look in the mirror.

    What a wimpy looking little shit-weasle!!

  • Rebecca Holstine says:

    I hope this POS made enough money off his book to live with out a job. Because after Trump wins the election, CNN and the others are going down, down, down, and the the little Ba$ta*D will be with out a job. Many companies won’t hire him, cause he has showed his lack of character and loyality

Fuck this commie piece of shit! & if this is the same piece of shit behind the recent mass mobilization anti-Trump movement to overthrow the government & country post election, that was recently detailed on this very site just days ago, then he needs to hang for treason & inciting an insurrection! Death to all traitors & treasonous peoples! Washings, ton & Jefferson would have done the same! & that is why they wrote it into our very constitution!
