Nearly three months into the post-Trump presidency, his administration members continue to find work as they transition back to regular media positions. Two aides from the former president have landed with Newsmax.
The network announced the hirings of Jason Miller, who is a current adviser to Trump post-presidency, and Andrew Giuliani, the son of Rudy Giuliani and a former White House aide, The Hillreports.
“Jason and Andrew have been Washington insiders without becoming part of the problem,” Newsmax CEO Christopher Ruddy said in a statement.
“Both of these gentlemen have tremendous track records in media and government, making their analysis of news events even more insightful for our viewers.”
This hiring isn’t the first time Newsmax contracts a former member of the Trump administration. The network added former Trump White House press secretary Sean Spicer, who has his show.
Newsmax revealed no further details about which programs Miller and Giuliani will be contributing to or when they’ll begin.
OAN Admits No “Voter Fraud” by Georgia Election Workers in 2020
Furthermore, the pre-recorded piece mentions that an investigation by state bureaucrats into unfounded declarations of widespread voter fraud made by former President Donald Trump and Rudy Giuliani resulted in nothing.
A recent pre-recorded 30-second segment by One America News could be part of a recent settlement connecting to a defamation lawsuit brought against the network by two workers.
In the segment, the news channel acknowledges there was “no widespread voter fraud” by Georgia election workers in the 2020 presidential election.
“The results of this investigation indicate that Ruby Freeman and Wandrea ‘Shaye’ Moss did not engage in ballot fraud or criminal misconduct,” a narrator states, per The Daily Beast.
“A legal matter with this network and the two election workers has been resolved to the mutual satisfaction of the parties through a fair and reasonable settlement.”
Freeman and her daughter, Moss, state they faced harassment online and in person following unfounded rumors that began circulating online due to content published by the conspiracy website The Gateway Pundit, which the pair also sued.

News Media Reacts To Dinesh D’Souza’s Claim of ‘2000 Mules’ Being Suppressed
’Souza has a new film called “2,000 Mules,” and he’s going after Fox News host Tucker Carlson and Newsmax, accusing them of suppressing his movie.
Dinesh D’Souza has a new film called “2,000 Mules” which allegedly exposes widespread, coordinated voter fraud in the 2020 election. But earning press for the film has been harder than expected. D’Souza claims Fox News host Tucker Carlson has tried to suppress his movie.
“I’m sorry to say Tucker Carlson and his team specifically instructed Catherine Engelbrecht of True the Vote NOT to mention the movie,” D’Souza tweeted.
True the Vote, the Texas-based non-profit organization that provided the analysis D’Souza based his movie on, declared that 2,000 “mules” were paid by Democratic representatives to gather and drop off ballots in multiple states.
D’Souza also took to Twitter to share that Newsmax blocked coverage of the film too. The director had been booked to appear on the channel, but the appearance was later cancelled.
