Miles Taylor, the former Trump administration official who revealed himself as the author of an anonymous, scathing op-ed directed at President Trump, has donated to the campaigns of Democrat Barack Obama and Never Trumper Mitt Romney.
Taylor also made headlines for publicly declaring his support for Democratic Presidential candidate Joe Biden despite being an alum of the Trump administration. His words were quickly seized upon by prominent Never Trump groups including the Lincoln Project and Republican Voters Against Trump.
The author of the anonymous New York Times op-ed which vowed to “thwart” President Trump’s agenda backing Biden, however, should come as no surprise.
Taylor has repeatedly donated money to candidates at odds with President Trump’s America First agenda. In one case, Taylor even donated to Democratic Presidential candidate Barack Obama.
Federal Election Commission (FEC) records show that Miles Taylor has donated nearly $1,000 to campaigns since 2008.
Of his total $942 spent, over 62 percent has gone to candidates that are anti-Trump.
In 2008, he donated $85 to Obama’s presidential campaign.
And in 2012, he donated a total of $507 to Romney, an ardent “Never Trumper” who epitomizes the establishment wing of the Republican Party.
Later, in 2016, he donated a total of $350 to Republican candidate Mike Gallagher. At the time, Taylor was working on the House Homeland Security Committee.
