Former Trump Homeland Security official Miles Taylor has been making waves for the former president for some time now. And it seems that he has no intention of keeping quiet now that Donald is out of the White House.
Appearing on a segment with MSNBC recently Taylor claimed that Republican lawmakers are secretly expressing hope that Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance is successful in taking down Donald Trump with an indictment, thereby ending his political career, so that the party is able to move on without him.
Taylor, the former chief of staff at the Homeland Security Department, spoke with MSNBC host Kendis Gibson and stated that the former president has legal troubles out the wazoo and his fellow Republicans in government are secretly crossing their fingers that those troubles finish flushing his political dreams down the toilet so the party can move on without the stain of Donald Trump, as the former president’s popularity continues to wane.
“This is a man, who has an almost-clinical addiction to wrongdoing,” Taylor stated. “Whether it’s cheating at his golf game or cheating at governing. I mean, look, we just saw the man tried to steal a national election. Would it surprise anyone that he tried to cheat on his tax returns?”
“Now, my prediction, Kendis, for this year, is going to be that the Donald Trump, who loves to win, win, win, is about to lose, lose, lose,” he went on to explain. “He lost a major election, he is losing in the court of public opinion and he is about to lose, I would predict, in the people’s court, if charges are brought against him. But, look, a lot of Republicans are actually hoping this will happen so they can move on from Donald Trump.”
Host Gibson pressed the former Trump official, asking, “Are you secretly hearing from Republican lawmakers, some who are publicly supporting Trump, they wish that he would just go away?”
“Yes,” Taylor shot back quickly. “I am going to give you two quick data points. That poll also showed that more than almost 50 percent of Republicans are, either, never-Trumpers or post-Trumpers. That means, a good chunk of the party, simply, wants to move on beyond this man. And behind the scenes, legislators are telling me they would like Donald Trump to be gone.”
In the public’s eye, it seems GOPers can’t quite make up their minds. In my personal opinion, it feels as though they know the depths of depravity within Donald Trump, but they’re still afraid of the power he could hold over them — generally resulting in a party that remains sycophantic to a man that’s no longer even in power. However, Miles’ revelation reveals a different reality behind closed doors. The GOP is done with Donald Trump, they want him gone, even if that means indictment.
