The suddenly very dreamy Miles Taylor — the former Trump DHS chief of staff who’s called his former boss, in a word, fuckingnuts — is back, and he’s bringing some of his friends with him.
Taylor, who exhorted us all to vote for Joe Biden unless we want human decency itself to be flung heedlessly into space, has started a group of former and current Department of Homeland Security officials who have vowed to oppose Trump’s reelection.
Taylor and Elizabeth Neumann, another former senior DHS official who served in the administration, have started the Republican Political Alliance for Integrity and Reform (REPAIR), which will include people who work or have worked for Trump but want to elect Biden and reform the Republican Party.So far, two current senior administration officials have anonymously signed on to the effort and one of them has preliminary plans to reveal their identity closer to the election and expects to get fired as a result, according to a person familiar with the project who declined to share the names of those two officials. The person also said the group is preparing another “bombshell” to be revealed as soon as Tuesday but didn’t get into any more detail when pressed.
