Max Miller, an Ohio congressional candidate and all-around “great guy” according to Donald Trump, filed a defamation suit against former White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham on Tuesday. Grisham, Miller’s ex-girlfriend who is on a media tour promoting her tell-all book, has claimed Miller physically abused her during their relationship.
Allegations of Miller’s abuse began circulating Washington in July, when Politico reported that Miller had pushed Grisham against a wall and slapped her across the face after she accused him of infidelity last year, according to the accounts of three people familiar with their relationship.
On Tuesday morning, Grisham published an op-ed in The Washington Post, writing that she told then-President Donald Trump and then-first lady Melania Trump that an unnamed ex “had become violent” but both “seemed totally unfazed about whether there was an abuser—another abuser—in their workplace.”
