As made apparent by his Tuesday accompaniment of President Donald Trump aboard Air Force One, White House senior adviser Stephen Miller is facing no internal punishment for his leaked emails peppered with white nationalist talking points.

According to the Washington Post, the White House has defended Miller in the face of his now-public ideologies, and congressional Republicans are offering few criticisms of their own.

White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham bashed the Southern Poverty Law Center, which published the emails, as a “far-left smear organization.”

Miller’s emails showed a fixation on crime committed by immigrants and people of color, and regurgitated ideas birthed on the fringes of white supremacy. His ideology has permeated the administration’s immigration policies, as he has been the chief architect of the nearly universal tightening of limitations on immigration.

He sent the messages to Breitbart writer Katie McHugh in 2015, when he was working as an aide to former Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL).

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.

Sincerely,
TPM Staff
