Emails show Stephen Miller targeted Rubio, had editorial sway at Breitbart

Washington (CNN) Stephen Miller, the controversial senior White House policy adviser with hardline immigration views, coordinated with editors at far-right news site Breitbart to shape its immigration coverage, pushing criticism of Republican Sen. Marco Rubio's immigration policies, and otherwise directing editorial coverage, newly released emails from 2015 show.

The emails were released Tuesday by the Southern Poverty Law Center, after they were leaked to the organization by a former Breitbart editor, Katie McHugh. McHugh was fired in 2017 after anti-Muslim remarks following a terrorist attack in London.

In the years since her time at Breitbart, McHugh has renounced her views and worked to expose members of the far right.

Tuesday's email release is the third in a series from the Southern Poverty Law Center. Earlier email releases indicate that Miller promoted stories from white nationalist and fringe media organizations to Breitbart staffers.
