The Whistleblowers: Inside the Trump Administration

THE WHISTLEBLOWERS: INSIDE THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION, hosted by former DHS official turned anonymous whistleblower and “Blowback” author Miles Taylor, will bring you into the room – and into the lives – of the high-ranking officials and frontline public servants who tried to bring order to the chaos of the Trump years, while grappling with the most difficult decision of their lives: whether to openly speak the truth. They knew that doing so meant near-certain retribution, costing them their homes, jobs, marriages, safety ... and changing the course of history.
