Former Trump communications aide admits to hiring prostitutes

Published

on

President Donald Trump’s former communications aide Jason Miller admitted to hiring prostitutes in 2015 and 2017, an exclusive report revealed Tuesday.

Mediaite broke the news that Miller had hired prostitutes for sexual acts and visited “happy ending” massage parlors in New York City, D.C., and Miami. The comments were part of a videotaped deposition, and Miller confessed that he was using the sexual services as recently as “a few months ago” from the deposition he gave on May 30.

The deposition was part of a lawsuit against the website Gizmodo, who Miller said defamed him by writing about allegations Miller “slipped” a Florida strip club dancer he’d impregnated an “abortion pill.” Miller denies the allegations.

Miller confessed in the deposition that he recalled sexual encounters with an escort as recently as the spring of 2017, a few months after he left the Trump transition team. Miller served as chief spokesman during the transition team and did not follow Trump to the White House. He went on to be a Republican commentator on CNN.

The former Trump transition official also said he had an affair with a press secretary for Sen. Ted Cruz’s presidential campaign, which occurred while his wife, Kelly Miller, was pregnant.

Raw Story reached out to Miller for a statement. He told Mediaite that he was not commenting on the Gizmodo lawsuit and was apologetic about his indiscretions.

“I know I am an imperfect person and have made a number of mistakes in my life,” Miller said. “I love my family and have spent much of the past two years asking for forgiveness and working to prove my commitment to them and to become a better person for them. I’m extremely grateful we’ve been able to keep our family together. Others I’ve disappointed with my actions will see a pathway toward forgiveness and some may not, but that doesn’t mean I’ll stop trying.”

GOP strategists fear a Kris Kobach nomination could cost Republicans greatly: ‘The Senate majority runs through Kansas’

Published

on

In Kansas’ Republican senatorial primary, voters will choose between former Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach and Rep. Roger Marshall — who some GOP strategists believe is by far the more electable of the two. And according to Politico’s James Arkin, one of the prominent Republicans who is sounding the alarm is Kevin McLaughlin, executive director of the National Republican Senatorial Committee.

Although Kobach and Marshall are both hard-right politically, Kobach is more extreme — so extreme that even in deep red Kansas, he lost a gubernatorial race to a centrist Democrat in the 2018 midterms. That Democrat, Laura Kelly, is now governor of Kansas, where Kobach was a leading promoter of the racist “birther” conspiracy theory during the 2010s.

Published

The ongoing saga of the Republican Party's attempt to hold a convention in August to choose Donald Trump as their presidential nominee is leaving small business owners in spurned Charlotte, North Carolina and Jacksonville, Florida frustrated and angry over lost income at a time when the economy is reeling.

According to a report from the Daily Beast, business owners in Charlotte are angry that the president abruptly pulled the convention from their city over concerns he couldn't put on the big production he craves due to the COVID-19 pandemic and Jacksonville business owners are unsure whether the convention that was moved to their city will pay off now that the GOP is dialing it back over the same health crisis concerns.

Published

President Donald Trump's frequent attacks on mail-in voting have made his own voters far less likely to take advantage of filing absentee ballots -- and the Washington Post reports that GOP operatives fear it could create a "turnout crisis."

Alabama Secretary of State John Merrill tells the Post that he recently met with a group of Republican voters who traditionally send their ballots through the mail, but were now reluctant to do so thanks to the president's regular attacks on the system.
