A political analyst and former senior Trump campaign staffer resigned as a regular contributor to CNN after allegations surfaced in court documents. Variety reports that Jason Miller, a former senior communications staffer with the Trump presidential campaign, announced his decision on Twitter.

“I have decided to step away from my role as a Political Commentator at CNN to focus on clearing my name and fighting the false and defamatory accusations being made against me,” Miller said in his tweet, which you can see below. Miller strongly denies the allegations.

“Documents in a custody case involving Miller were filed earlier this month in Miami-Dade Circuit Court, and obtained by the online news outlet Splinter,” Variety reports. “A Splinter report, citing the court documents, alleged Miller had an affair with a woman and when she later found out she was pregnant, Miller ‘surreptitiously dosed her with an abortion pill without her knowledge,’ leading to the end of the pregnancy.”

Variety adds: “The controversy appears to be the latest turn in a sordid saga that has enmeshed Miller in the past. Miller had been chosen to serve as White House Communications Director but had to decline the role after allegations surfaced of a extramarital relationship with A.J. Delgado, a Trump campaign staffer, which resulted in a child. The most recent allegations surfaced in a court matter between Miller and Delgado.”
