Trump Loyalist Jason Miller Releases Statement That He Was Held by Police and Questioned for Three Hours

    Update: Jason Miller just issued a statement:

    Former senior Trump adviser Jason Miller was detained at a Brazil airport, as earlier reported, according to a Portuguese language report.

    “The Federal Police detained the businessman and former right-hand man of former US President Donald Trump , Jason Miller, this Tuesday morning (7/9), at Brasília International Airport,” Metropoles reported.

    “According to the column, he was detained in the area reserved for private flights, when he was about to board a private jet back to the United States,” the report continued.

    “Miller was detained to testify to the PF under investigation 4874, which investigates the organization of anti-democratic acts in Brazil,” the report added. “The order came from Minister Alexandre de Moraes , rapporteur of the investigation at the STF.”

    “The businessman is the founder of Gettr, created to take Trump back to social media, after the former president was banned from major platforms,” the report noted. “Gettr has 2 million followers, of which 13.5% are from Brazil.”

    “Miller was in Brazil to participate in the Conservative Political Action Conference (Cpac),” the report adds. “In Brasília, he met with President Jair Bolsonaro, Deputy Eduardo Bolsonaro and former Chancellor Ernesto Araújo.”

    The last message posted by Jason Miller on Twitter was six hours before the publication of this report. It honors Brazil’s 199th anniversary.

    This is breaking news. It will be updated as more information is forthcoming.
