'Anonymous' Author Miles Taylor Sees Ohio As Epicenter of Homegrown Terror

Miles Taylor speaks with Ohio Senator Rob Portman and former Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen after the Republican Caucus luncheon on Capitol Hill in Washington on March 5, 2019.

A bombshell op-ed in The New York Times, followed by the book, A Warning, were both stunning rebukes of the Trump administration from within.

Last week, Miles Taylor, a former official within the Department of Homeland Security, was revealed as "anonymous," to whom the op-ed and book were both originally attributed.

Now, Taylor has another warning: that Ohio is an epicenter for homegrown terrorism. 

"Ohio is definitely at the epicenter of this. It's important the administration focus on the problem. Unfortunately, we have a president who, rather than telling these terrorists that they are going to stand trial, is telling them to stand by," Taylor said in a report by Ohio Public Radio.

Miles Taylor joins Cincinnati Edition to talk about it.

Listen to Cincinnati Edition live at noon M-F. Audio for this segment will be uploaded after 4 p.m. ET.
