Trump has long predicted.
  52. 2020 Wednesday B: Ex-DHS official Miles Taylor comes out as “Anonymous,” the one who was working against President Donald J. Trump from within the administration, trying to take him down from the inside.  No one knows who this POS is or why he was disgruntled but everyone gets theirs.  It is just a matter of time… Meanwhile, following Tony Bobulinski going public on the rampant corruption within the Biden Family and the Harris-Biden 2020 Campaign- Build Back Better (Bullshit)- the campaign makes it known to ALL media companies that anyone who shares the Hunter Biden laptop story or what the brave Bobulinski said on Tucker Carlson’s show last night will be SHUNNED from the Biden White House.  SHUNNED.
