‘Anonymous' Trump Administration Official, Who Claimed There Was a 'Resistance' Inside The Government Against Trump, Interned for Dick Cheney

Miles Taylor

Miles Taylor, the former chief of staff at the Department of Homeland Security, was the anonymous author of The New York Times Op-Ed article in 2018 where he described President Trump as “impetuous, adversarial, petty and ineffective' and said there was a "resistance" in the Trump White House.

Taylor outed himself today.

The Times reports that as a senior administration official, Taylor often interacted with the president at the White House, particularly on issues related to immigration, cybersecurity and terrorism. 

This is a case, however, of  Trump once again having enemies surrounding him.

One glance at Taylor's resume and you would know this guy was trouble for a president who wanted to wind down wars.

In 2007, while in college, he interned in the office of the Secretary of Defense and the office of Vice President Dick Cheney.  In 2008, he worked as Briefing Book coordinator at the Department of Homeland Security. In 2015 he was named a Penn Kemble Fellow by the National Endowment for Democracy.

After leaving the Trump Administration in 2019, he joined Google where he first held the post of head of national security policy engagement and was then U.S. lead for advanced technology and security strategy. 

Last month, he joined CNN as a contributor.



  1. He tweeted that Trump was a “man without character”, which I don’t know if I could argue with that, but it’s fun seeing a man saying that who thinks character obviously means spying on Americans, tearing families apart, and never ending foreign wars. Loser. He even looks like a loser. Why do republican political men always try to look so pretty?

  2. Spot on Joshua Bennett!
    Never trust a man with lego-man hair.
