Former Trump campaign staffer and CNN contributor Jason Miller allegedly slipped a possibly laced abortion pill into a smoothie he gave his mistress after he learned she was pregnant, court documents filed earlier this month claim. The unborn baby was killed and the unnamed woman, a stripper from Orlando referred to as "Jane Doe," suffered severe medical complications and nearly fell into a coma.
On Saturday, Miller announced his resignation from CNN to "focus on clearing my name," he said in a tweeted statement wherein he vehemently denied the allegations.
"To be clear, none of this is in any way true," he added. "That doesn't matter however in the current court of public opinion, where fraudulent statements and a lack of factual support rule the day as long as it fits into a tweet."
The legal team of A.J. Delgado, a former Trump campaign staffer who had an affair with Miller in 2016, made the explosive allegations in the documents first obtained by Splinter News. Delgado conceived a child during her affair with the married Miller, whose wife was also pregnant at the time, and told Splinter that she's worried for her and her son's safety.
Miller met the dancer at Rachel’s Gentleman’s Club in Orlando and began a relationship with her in 2012, according to the filing. After learning that Doe was pregnant with their child, Miller allegedly slipped her the pill, which was possibly laced with "street drugs," without her knowledge or consent:
Shortly thereafter, according to Joe Doe, Mr. Miller visited her at her apartment with a Smoothie beverage.
Unbeknownst to Jane Doe, the Smoothie contained an abortion bill. [sic]
The pill induced an abortion, and Jane Doe wound up in a hospital emergency room, bleeding heavily and nearly went into a coma.
The unborn child died.
Jane Doe herself was hospitalized for two days, the abortion pill possibly reacting with potential street drugs in her system at the time she drank the Smoothie.
Upon leaving the hospital, a rightly enraged Jane Doe contacted the staffers of local politicians with whom Mr. Miller had been in attendance at Rachel’s the night they met.
"Mr. Miller then, in a panic, attempted to have Jane Doe sign a non-disclosure agreement (“NDA”), presumably in exchange for a sum of money," the filing said.
"I'm concerned for my safety (more importantly, my son’s) with Miller and afraid of his reaction if I add comment," Delgado said.
Miller's legal team flatly denied the claims.
"To be clear, there is no validity to the false accusations made in Ms. Delgado’s filing," they told Splinter.
The legal team added: "We also know the identity of the ‘Jane Doe’ referenced in the filing, have located her, and Mr. Miller is absolutely certain that he does not know her, never had a relationship with her, and never engaged in the actions Ms. Delgado—and now you—falsely accuse him of committing."
Miller, in a series of tweets posted on Saturday, claimed "Ms. Delgado’s defamatory accusations" have "already been disproven by at least one reporter."
Reporter Yashar Ali, however, has since claimed that he is the journalist Miller is referring to and said he has never disproven the claims.
