(Headline USAThe former Department of Homeland Security official who wrote an op-ed detailing a secret inside effort to thwart the Trump administration revealed this week that he is leaving the Republican Party.

Miles Taylor, who is only known for his infamous “Anonymous” op-ed for the New York Times, in which he admitted to undermining his boss, claimed on Wednesday that the GOP can no longer “be saved.”

“After more than a decade in counterterrorism, it’s clear to me that my party is mainstreaming conspiracy theories that are fueling a statistical spike in political intimidation, attitudes toward violence and the specter of domestic terrorism that we witnessed this weekend in New York,” he wrote.

He argued that the Republican Party was now one “of misinformation and false grievances, of protectionism and nativism, of election subversion and anti-democratic sentiment.”

The only Republican Taylor still respects, apparently, is Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., who is “trying to restore sanity” to the GOP, he said.

“Conservatives of conscience must quit the GOP and oppose the Republican Party until it is rehabilitated or a suitable alternative is created,” he added.
