President Donald Trump’s former communications chief Jason Miller admitted to hiring prostitutes in 2015 and 2017, Mediaite revealed Tuesday.
The news outlet reported that Miller hired “numerous” prostitutes and visited “hand job” massage parlors as recently as a few months ago.
Miller made the admission as part of a videotaped deposition on May 30 in Washington D.C. in connection to his lawsuit against the digital media company Gizmodo.
The suit accuses Gizmodo of defaming Miller with a story citing an allegation he slipped an “abortion pill” to a Florida strip club dancer he impregnated. The story was based on a sealed court filing. Miller denies the allegation and claims the story is untrue. The lawsuit also names individual defendants Katherine Krueger, a reporter for Gizmodo’s political site Splinter, and Will Menaker, the host of the popular leftist podcast Chapo Trap House.
Miller describes the occasions he paid women for sex since 2001. Soliciting prostitution was, and still is, a crime in the cities where Miller admitted to hiring escorts.
“I know I am an imperfect person and have made a number of mistakes in my life,” Miller told the news outlet. “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.”
