(Newser) – A Former Trump 2016 campaign aide who'd since become a paid political commentator on CNN is out at the news network in the wake of allegations he slipped drugs to a woman he'd impregnated in a bid to terminate the pregnancy. Court documents first reported on by Splinter are just the latest filed as part of an ongoing child custody dispute between former Trump staffers AJ Delgado and Jason Miller. Included this time, however, is the shocking claim that Miller impregnated a woman he met at an Orlando strip club before allegedly slipping her an abortion pill. The woman lost the baby and nearly her own life, per the report. Delgado became pregnant while on the campaign trail with Miller, who was married at the time, and the two share a 10-month-old son.

In parting ways with CNN, Deadline reports Miller issued a full-throated denial of Delgado's claims and, in a statement on Twitter, went on to suggest his former mistress is purely out for revenge. "There is no validity to the false accusations made in the document Arlene “AJ” Delgado filed herself, without an attorney," Miller wrote. "Splinter also failed to do anything to corroborate the accuracy of Ms. Delgado’s defamatory accusations, which have already been disproven by at least one reporter whom Ms. Delgado attempted to involve in her continuous attempts to smear me." Miller went on to point out that Delgado has feuded with exes in the past, specifically one who was issued a 5-year restraining order against her. (Read more AJ Delgado stories.)
