‘Anonymous’ Author of Anti-Trump Article Is ‘Google Staffer’

As if we needed any more proof of Google’s leftist leanings, it has now been revealed that a Google staffer is the anonymous author of an anti-Trump New York Times opinion piece and book, A Warning. 

Miles Taylor, a former Department of Homeland Security official under the Trump administration came forward on October 28 as the author of The Times piece. In the piece, Taylor outlines his critiques of both President Donald Trump and his administration. Taylor joined Google shortly after leaving the Trump administration. 

“Google confirmed Taylor has worked for the company since September 2018 but has been on unpaid leave since August. Taylor took his leave this summer as he announced his support for Vice President Joe Biden's presidential bid,” according to CNet

“Much has been made of the fact that these writings were published anonymously,” said Taylor in a blog post. “The decision wasn't easy, I wrestled with it, and I understand why some people consider it questionable to levy such serious charges against a sitting President under the cover of anonymity.”

Taylor has reportedly been on leave from Google since August of this year, as he announced his support for Democratic Party nominee Joe Biden’s campaign, according to CNet.

Now neither the right nor the left appear to be a fan of Taylor. In 2019, more than a year after Google hired Taylor, Joaquin Castro (D-TX), Chair of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, Karen Bass (D-CA), Chair of the Congressional Black Caucus, and Judy Chu (D-CA), Chair of the Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus, sent a letter to Google CEO Sundar Pichai. The letter stated that they were concerned about the fact that Taylor had “undoubtedly demonstrated his support for the Trump administration’s immigration policies.” 

Google employees donated over $350,000 to Democratic presidential candidates in 2019. That same year, Google fired one of its engineers for his conservative views.
