As Twitchy reported, the man who wrote that anonymous New York Times op-ed from inside the White House warning the country about President Trump has revealed his identity. It’s … Miles Taylor, former chief of staff of the Department of Homeland Security and current CNN contributor. As Twitchy also reported, Taylor lied on air and told CNN’s Anderson Cooper back in August that he was not ‘Anonymous.’
“I wear a mask for two things, Anderson: Halloween and pandemics. So, no,” says @MilesTaylorUSA, when asked by @AndersonCooper if he is the author of the op-ed book written by someone called Anonymous. pic.twitter.com/sPjs4OoAnp

I would love to hear his rationale for lying on national TV about this. https://t.co/3joN0mkOt8

Brian Stelter tells us that Taylor became a CNN contributor earlier this fall, but no one at the network, according to Jake Tapper, knew he was the author of the op-ed.

So was he fired for lying in TV or no? Hacks.

Ok, so is he still a CNN contributor now that we know he lied to CNN? https://t.co/xcwRjj2qth

And still no one knows who it is.

LOL this is embarrassing. He works for CNN. This is why nobody believes it when networks like CNN or MSNBC cite 'anonymous sources".
But of course they had noooo idea it was him.

Trump wouldn't have a clue who this guy is…and still doesn't because he works for CNN
What a joke and con job

Bobulinski stepped out of the shadows when Adam Schiff disparaged him after his honorable service to our country.
Maybe print what Bobulinski said on Tucker last night, right along with your anonymous opiners.

That’s a good question, though: Is Taylor still a CNN contributor now that we know he lied to CNN that he wasn’t “Anonymous”? Do they have any pride or principles over there?
‘Anonymous’ anti-Trump writer the NYT’s promoted reveals identity, and in a SHOCKING twist, he’s a CNN contributor (who lied) https://t.co/tDzRPMGXza
