Ex-Trump aide flops in court after suing publication over allegations that he drugged woman he impregnated

Published

A former aide to President Donald Trump has lost his defamation lawsuit against a progressive news website that reported on allegations that he got a woman pregnant and then tried to slip her a pill meant to induce the termination of her pregnancy.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Jason Miller this week was defeated in court by Gizmodo Media Group, whose publication Splinter News in 2018 posted a story with the headline, “Court Docs Allege Ex-Trump Staffer Drugged Woman He Got Pregnant With ‘Abortion Pill.'”

U.S. District Court Judge Cecilia Altonago ruled that Splinter’s report about the court documents containing the allegations against Miller was a “fair and true” summary, while also shooting down Miller’s contention that the report was out of bounds because it was based on court documents that had been sealed.

“Under a long line of New York cases… New York’s fair report privilege generally applies to sealed documents,” the judge wrote in her decision.

The allegations against Miller were filed as part of a lawsuit involving A.J. Delgado, a former Trump staffer whom Miller had also impregnated. According to Delgado’s filing, Miller had an affair with an unnamed woman in Florida, got her pregnant, and then brought her a smoothie that contained an abortion pill, which ended her pregnancy.

The so-called Ron Vara has strong opinions, fortune-cookie-style quotes and an elaborate back story as "a military veteran and Harvard-trained economist who made seven figures in the stock market by investing in companies that do well during international crises," the report said.

With just two weeks on the job, an attorney for Rudy Giuliani is reportedly already parting ways with his client.

CNN reporter Erica Orden revealed on Monday that Sale would no longer be working for Giuliani. No additional details were immediately available.

Sale's departure was announced soon after Giuliani said on Tuesday that he would not comply with subpoenas from House Democrats.

Published

A conservative Florida pastor says he has prayed for the impeachment of President Donald Trump.

The outspoken and frequently controversial Rev. O’Neal Dozier voted for Trump in 2016 and thanked God for his victory during a GOP event shortly after the election, but he has turned on the president and the Republican Party, reported the Orlando Sun-Sentinel.

“The Republicans are selling their souls to the devil and disgracing themselves to maintain their seats in Congress,” Dozier wrote in the South Florida Times. "Many of these Republicans are confessed Christians, who are violating the tenets of their religion in the support of President Trump."
