The writer known as Anonymous has unveiled his identity.
Miles Taylor, a former chief of staff in Donald Trump’s Department of Homeland Security, says he wrote the highly critical op-ed in the New York Times that later led to the anti-Trump book A Warning, both of which were attributed to Anonymous.
Taylor had previously denied being Anonymous, including to colleagues at CNN, to which he contributes, according to the Associated Press.
CNN will allow Taylor to continue as a contributor.
A Warning came out last November and gave what it described as an insider’s look at the Trump administration.
The book and Taylor’s self-reveal as Anonymous drew considerable criticism from Trump and his current administration officials, which you can read along with more of Taylor’s personal story in the AP’s coverage.
