Donald Trump hasn’t even taken office yet, but already there’s allegations of a staff sex scandal.
Jason Miller abruptly resigned as White House communications director on Christmas Eve, two days after landing the coveted role, to “spend more time with his family.”
Insiders had already been buzzing about married Miller “spending time” during the campaign with Trump adviser A.J. Delgado — the staffers who famously went to a strip club with the media after the final debate in Vegas.
Miller’s appointment initially sent Delgado into a Twitter frenzy. She wrote, “Congratulations to the baby-daddy on being named WH Comms Director!” Miller and his wife are expecting their second child next month.
Delgado then went on to brand Miller “The 2016 version of John Edwards,” who famously hid his love child in 2008.
But Delgado didn’t stop there. She went on, “When people need to resign graciously and refuse to, its a bit . . . spooky.” And she added, “Jason Miller. Who needed to resign . . . yesterday.” And then she deleted her Twitter account and changed her cellphone number.
And then on Dec. 24, Miller did resign, saying in a statement (just two days after landing one of the top jobs in the White House): “After spending this past week with my family, the most amount of time I have been able to spend with them since March 2015, it is clear they need to be my top priority right now and this is not the right time to start a new job as demanding as White House communications director.”
Neither Miller nor Delgado responded to calls and e-mails for comment on Monday.
Insiders said upon the news of Miller’s appointment and the subsequent tweetstorm, the rumors of Delgado’s relationship with Miller, her direct supervisor, forced his resignation.
Other sources say Miller has been considering other more lucrative offers in the private sector.
Trump’s transition team declined to comment on Monday.
