The White House is standing by senior adviser Stephen MillerStephen MillerSenate confirms controversial circuit court nominee Chad Wolf becomes acting DHS secretary Schumer calls conservative Trump court pick a 'bottom crawler' MORE as he faces calls from dozens of Democrats to resign after newly released emails showed he circulated material linked to white nationalism to conservative media before joining the administration.
The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) has published summaries of hundreds of emails Miller sent to Katie McHugh, a former editor at Breitbart News. The emails contain links and references to far-right websites, with much of the focus on immigration. The SPLC is planning to release additional emails in the coming days.
Democrats have reacted to the emails with outrage, decrying Miller as a white nationalist and calling for his resignation. But the White House has scoffed at the source of the documents, painting the SPLC as a discredited group and defending Miller in an indication that one of Trump's longest tenured and most influential aides will weather the controversy.
“I work with Stephen. I know Stephen. He loves this country and hates bigotry in all forms – and it deeply concerns me as to why so many on the left consistently attack Jewish members of this Administration,” deputy White House press secretary Hogan Gidley said in a statement.
Numerous Democratic lawmakers have called for Miller to resign, citing the contents of the messages released by SPLC.
