White House adviser Stephen Miller was escorted off the set of CNN’s "State of the Union" on Sunday after a contentious interview with host Jake Tapper.

Two sources close to the situation told Business Insider that after the taping was done, Miller was politely asked to leave several times.

He ignored those requests and ultimately security was called and he was escorted out, the sources said.

The network addressed the incident in a statement later Sunday night.

"The segment was over and Mr. Miller was politely asked to leave the set multiple times — after refusing to leave, he was escorted out by security," the statement read.

Stephen Miller needed to be escorted off a CNN set on Sunday. His appearance on "State of the Union" ended abruptly after host Jake Tapper pressed him on damaging claims about President Donald Trump.

Miller's appearance on the cable network quickly went off the rails when Tapper pressed him on explosive claims about President Donald Trump that appeared in the book "Fire & Fury: Inside The Trump White House" by Michael Wolff.

Miller repeatedly attempted to pivot the conversation toward criticism of CNN, a favorite target of Trump's. He then referred to Trump as a "political genius" and lamented his treatment during the interview, leading Tapper to reply that there was only "one viewer you care about right now."

"I think I've wasted enough of my viewers' time. Thank you, Stephen," Tapper said, bringing the interview to an abrupt end.

Shortly after the interview ended, Trump tweeted, "Jake Tapper of Fake News CNN just got destroyed in his interview with Stephen Miller of the Trump Administration."

The White House did not respond to Business Insider's request for comment.

WWE's Roman Reigns, famous actors implicated in steroids ring .
WWE Superstar Roman Reigns and famous actors Mark Wahlberg and Josh Duhamel are accused of being involved in a steroids ring. The accusations of Reigns, Wahlberg and Duhamel’s ties to a steroids ring were revealed by Richard Rodriguez, the owner of Miami-based Wellness Fitness Nutrition and Iron Addicts gym, who is in jail for dealing steroids. His business was raided by the DEA last February. You can read the entire complaint against him here. Filmmaker Jon Bravo is making a film about the gym/steroids ring and interviewed Rodriguez. He posted the audio of an interview with Rodriguez on YouTube on Jan. 11. In that interview, Rodriguez names Reigns Wahlberg and Duhamel as his clients. In the interview, Rodriguez says the reason for naming names and talking is because he is trying to clear his name and make people aware of what’s out there. He claims Reigns was introduced to him by an informant. Reigns, 32, is the current Intercontinental Champion in WWE. He was suspended by WWE for a month in 2016 for a wellness policy violation.
