“Parscale is one of the key players in the 2016 Trump campaign who has not been interviewed by Mueller’s team. So he’s part of a club that includes Roger Stone, Paul Manafort, Donald Trump Jr. and Michael Cohen. All of them met with Congress, but not Mueller — hinting that they could all be targets.”
“Former Trump aide and accused wife-beater Rob Porter may have landed himself a new gig at the Trump campaign,” the Daily Mail reports.
“Within days of being let go as staff secretary to President Trump, alleged wife abuser Porter was hired by Brad Parscale, the president’s 2020 campaign manager… In addition to leading the Trump campaign, Parscale also has a political branding and strategy business… It is believed Porter is being paid by Parscale’s company with the intention of involving him in the campaign at some point in the future.”
Associated Press: “The rollout of Brad Parscale’s announcement as Trump’s 2020 campaign manager was not without a hitch. A statement released Tuesday by the Trump campaign attributed to White House senior adviser Jared Kushner was in apparent violation of federal law prohibiting the use of official titles in political work. The campaign used Kushner’s title and his position as an ‘assistant to the president’ in its press release announcing Parscale’s role.”
“The Hatch Act bars government employees from using their official titles in political work. Press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Tuesday all senior officials and Cabinet secretaries have been briefed on the prohibition.”
President Trump has hired Brad Parscale, the digital media director of his 2016 campaign, to run his re-election bid, CNN reports.
Jonathan Swan: “This decision reflects Jared Kushner’s continued influence inside Trumpworld. Nobody has promoted Brad Parscale more than Jared, and during the campaign he was Parscale’s biggest advocate. It also shows that Trump wants somebody adept at digital campaigning to run his campaign.”
