The latest coronavirus-positive White House staffer is Stephen Miller’s wife

A spokesperson for Vice President Mike Pence has been diagnosed with coronavirus, POLITICO reports. The spokesperson, Katie Miller, also happens to be the wife of immigration hawk and senior Trump adviser Stephen Miller.

“Miller’s positive diagnosis for Covid-19 puts the potential threat of the infection squarely into the president’s inner circle,” POLITICO’s Dan Diamond and Myah Ward report. “Miller serves as the vice president’s top spokesperson, traveling with him frequently and attending meetings by his side.”

“Katie Miller’s positive diagnosis raises the risk that, through both her and her husband’s daily work, a large swath of the West Wing’s senior aides may also have been exposed to the novel coronavirus,” the report continued. “She did not immediately respond to a request for comment.”
