Former Trump aide and GETTER CEO Jason Miller has been detained at the Brasilia International airport in Brazil while he was boarding a plane to return to the US.
According to early reports, Miller was taken into custody on Tuesday to testify before the federal police under investigation 4874, which “investigates the organization of anti-democratic acts” in Brazil.
The order is said to have come from Alexandre de Moraes, a justice of Brazil’s Supreme Federal Court.
While in Brazil, Miller reportedly met with President Jair Bolsonaro, Deputy Eduardo Bolsonaro and former Chancellor Ernesto Araújo.
Miller recently launched GETTR, a pro-free speech social media platform, that is meant to be an alternative to Twitter.
GETTER published a statement from Miller which said that he has been released to return to the US.
“This afternoon my traveling party was questioned for three hours at the airport in Brasilia, after having attended this weekend’s CPAC Brasil Conference. We were not accused of any wrongdoing, and told only that they ‘wanted to talk.’ We informed them that we had nothing to say and were eventually released to fly back to the United States,” the statement said. “Our goal of sharing free speech around the world continues!”
The Gateway Pundit will provide updates as more information becomes available.
