He previously served on the National Security Advisor & Professional Staff Member for the House Homeland Security Committee.
White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany claimed that Miles was incompetent during his time at DHS.
“He was ineffective and incompetent during his time as DHS Chief of Staff which is why he was promptly fired after only serving in this role for a matter of weeks.

Trump campaign spokesman Hogan Gidley, a White House staffer during the time Taylor worked at DHS, said. “This is the least impressive, lamest political ‘reveal’ of all time. I worked with DHS officials while I was in the White House, and even I had to research who Miles Taylor was.”

Miles Taylor Anonymous Author – Miles Taylor Statement
On October 28, 2020 Miles wrote a statement on Medium titled, ‘Why I’m no longer “Anonymous”‘.
“More than two years ago, I published an anonymous opinion piece in The New York Times about Donald Trump’s perilous presidency, while I was serving under him. He responded with a short but telling tweet: “TREASON?””
He added that “those works was not about eminence (they were published without attribution), not about money (I declined a hefty monetary advance and pledged to donate the bulk of the proceeds), and not about crafting a score-settling “tell all” (my focus was on the President himself and his character, not denigrating former colleagues).”
He added that he was not afraid to criticize the President under his name. “Nevertheless, I made clear I wasn’t afraid to criticize the President under my name. In fact, I pledged to do so. That is why I’ve already been vocal throughout the general election.”
He claimed that after the op-ed was published he has been joined by an unprecedented number of former colleagues who’ve chosen to speak out against the man they once served.
“…since the op-ed was published, I’ve been joined by an unprecedented number of former colleagues who’ve chosen to speak out against the man they once served. Donald Trump’s character and record have now been challenged in myriad ways by his own former Chief of Staff, National Security Advisor, Communications Director, Secretary of State, Secretary of Defense, Director of National Intelligence, Vice Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and others he personally appointed.”
He had previously denied being “Anonymous” during an interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper in August 2020. Cooper asked Taylor in the interview, “There was an op-ed, there was a book, by someone calling themselves ‘Anonymous.’ Are you aware of who that is?”
“I’m not. That was a parlor game that happened in Washington, D.C., of a lot of folks trying to think of who that might be. I’ve got my own thoughts about who that might be —” Taylor replied.
“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
