'Anonymous' anti-Trump official revealed as CNN pundit Miles Taylor, che ha mentito sulla scrittura di un editoriale del NYT

L'anonimo alto funzionario dell'amministrazione Trump che ha scritto il famigerato editoriale del New York Times 2018 declaring to be part of theresistancerevealed himself on Wednesday to be former Department of Homeland Security chief of staff Miles Taylor.

Taylor, who previously came forward as a critic of Presidente Trump and a supporter of Joe Biden in August, explained that he wrote his 2019 libro “A Warningas Anonymous as acaution to voters that it wasn’t as bad as it looked inside the Trump administration – it was worse.

While I claim sole authorship of the work, the sentiments expressed within it were widely held among officials at the highest levels of the federal government,” Taylor wrote in a statement published on Medium. “In altre parole, Trump’s own lieutenants were alarmed by his instability.

Taylor was hired by CNN as a contributor in September. tuttavia, it is now known that he lied to the network by denying authorship of the op-ed during an Aug. 21 interview with his now-colleague Anderson Cooper.


There was an op-ed, there was a book by someone calling themselves ‘Anonymous.Are you aware of who that is?” Cooper asked.

“Non sono,” Taylor responded. “Guarda, that was a parlor game that happened in Washington D.C. of a lot of folks trying to think of who that might be. I’ve got my own thoughts about who that might be, but-

You’re not Anonymous,” Cooper interjected.

I wear a mask for two things, Anderson: Halloweens and pandemics. Così, no,” Taylor answered.

Taylor similarly lied to Vice News political correspondent Elizabeth Landers about being the anonymous writer.

According to CNN anchor Jake Tapper, who broke the news on his network on Wednesday afternoon, “We did not know this until today.

La CNN non ha risposto immediatamente a Fox News’ richiesta di commento, though a spokesperson told Washington Post’s Erik Wemple that Taylor will remain as a contributor despite his lie to Anderson Cooper.

White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany released a statement knocking Taylor as alow-level, disgruntled former staffer,” così come “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,” McEnany added. “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.


White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows also piled on the former Trump official.

You have got to be kidding me. Miles Taylor? That’s who the New York Times granted an anonymous editorial article? I’ve seen more exciting reveals in Scooby-Doo episodes. What a monumental embarrassment,” Meadows tweeted.

When the op-ed by asenior Trump administration officialwas published in September 2018, there was plenty of speculation that the identity was actually someone of high status. Names that were floated at the time included then-White House Chief of Staff John Kelly, then-Counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway, then-DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, and then-U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley.

The big reveal turned out to be a big letdown on social media.

It’s an embarrassment,” Axios reporter Jonathan Swan reacted. “I also didn’t realize the definition of ‘senior administration officialcould be *this* expansive. Wasn’t even an agency chief of staff at the time the op-ed ran.

I can’t stop laughing. What a bust. Everyone is like ‘who?'” former acting DNI Ric Grenell tweeted.


So ‘anonymousturns out to be both no one you’ve heard of and a CNN contributor. Who could’ve predicted this,” RealClearInvestigations senior writer Mark Hemmingway similarly said.

This is like Al Capone’s vault. The guy quit the administration, was heavily promoted through a clear PR campaigndid media tours, and is now making $ $ as a CNN contributor. What a coward. It’s a reminder of how much of the Never Trump crowd is made up of grifters,” NewsBusters managing editor Curtis Houck wrote.

Miles Taylor is the new James Comey. He’s not a hero to either side,” journalist Yashar Ali declared.

Other critics noted Taylor’s tenure at DHS coincided with the Trump administration’s controversial policy of separating children of migrants from their parents at the U.S.-Mexico border.

Miles Taylor was a critical part of the team that decided to separated thousands of migrant kids from their parents, resulting in lifelong psychological trauma. He would like you to believe otherwise,” MSNBC correspondent Jacob Soboroff said.

Congrats to all of the #resistance people who bought a book by a guy who was complicit in DHS family separations,” New Yorker’s Josh Billinson quipped.

Nel 2018 Times op-ed, Taylor wrote, “We believe our first duty is to this country, and the president continues to act in a manner that is detrimental to the health of our republic.

The op-ed took particular aim at the president’s behavior, claiming he was “irregolare” and had a fundamentalamoralitythat plagued his administration.


Anyone who works with him knows he is not moored to any discernible first principles that guide his decision making,” it read.

A novembre 2019, the anonymous official releasedA Warning.

The obvious corruption was in the Oval Office,” one excerpt from the book reads. “The president had apparently learned nothing from the Mueller saga. Only we did. We learned that, given enough time and space, Donald J. Trump will seek to abuse any power he is given.
