Jason Miller, who served Donald Trump's 2016 campaign and his transition team, announced on Saturday that he was quitting his role as CNN political commentator to clear his name
A former spokesperson for Trump's campaign has reportedly been accused of slipping an abortion pill into his pregnant girlfriend's smoothie. Court documents state that the pill caused her to be admitted to a hospital and nearly go into a coma.
The ex-Trump staff member, Jason Miller, who served Donald Trump's 2016 presidential campaign and his transition team, announced on Saturday that he was quitting his role as CNN political commentator to "focus on clearing [his] name" and battling the accusations.
The details of the court filings were initially reported by Splinter News, which also allege that before Miller's high-profile extramarital relationship with another Trump campaign staffer, AJ Delgado, he had an affair with an unnamed woman he met at an Orlando strip club, called Rachel's Gentleman's Club.
According to the court documents, when the dancer found out that she was pregnant, Miller allegedly slipped an abortion pill into her drink without her knowledge. The pill reportedly caused her to end up in an emergency room "bleeding heavily and nearly going into a coma".
The documents state that the woman was hospitalized for two days with "the abortion pill possibly reacting with potential street drugs in her system" at the time she drank the smoothie, the New York Post reported.
Miller was reportedly working for a prominent Republican advertisement firm Jamestown Associates when his alleged relationship with the dancer began in 2012.
The court documents were reportedly filed on September 14 in a Miami-Date Circuit Court as part of a current custody battle between Miller and Delgado, as the latter has asked Miller to undergo a psychological evaluation.
Delgado said that she fears for their son's safety with Miller around. Delgado and Miller had a son during their affair which started when she and Miller, married at the time, were both working on Trump's 2016 campaign. Reports state that Miller's wife was also pregnant with their second daughter at the time of the extramarital affair.
Delgado, while talking to Splinter New, said: "I’m concerned for my safety (more importantly, my son’s) with Miller and afraid of his reaction if I add comment."
Meanwhile, Miller has denied all allegations, saying that the court filings are Delgado's "continuous attempts to smear me" and has accused her of having mental and emotional issues.
