Campaign staffer Jason Miller for Donald Trump recently turned down a job working as Director of Communications, but new information has surfaced that could explain Miller’s decision, according to a Politico report Monday.
Miller allegedly had an affair during the course of the campaign, according to Politico’s report. The allegations come from transition aide A.J. Delgado, who tweeted congratulations to the “baby-daddy” for his promotion, calling Miller the “2016 version of John Edwards.”
“When you try to put a brave face and tweet about nonsense to distract, your feed looks like @JasonMillerDC’s,” Delgado wrote Twitter. “When people need to resign graciously and refuse to, it’s a bit … spooky.” Delgado then clarified who she was talking about, “Jason Miller, who needed to resign … yesterday.”
Miller mentioned family time when he officially turned down the position in the White House Saturday, “After spending this past week with my family, the most amount of time I have been able to spend with them since March 2015, it is clear they need to be my top priority right now,” Miller said in the prepared statement. “I need to put them in front of my career.”
Trump insiders told Politico that the campaign knew of the alleged relationship “for months” before offering Miller the job. Miller previously offered to resign when he took staffers to a strip club in Las Vegas, Nevada according to a New York Times report last month.
Incoming White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer announced he would be taking over Miller’s duties as communications director.
