In 2016, it seemed like Brad Parscale had the magic touch for Donald Trump. So he was promoted to run Trump’s entire campaign in 2020. That flamed out spectacularly, though, after Trump had a pathetic showing at a 2020 Tulsa rally. Parscale was demoted shortly after.
So while Parscale wasn’t involved in insurrection, the January 6th committee wanted to talk to him about other things. According to the Washington Post, Parscale recently talked to the group about Trump and money.
Josh Dawsey Jacqueline Alemany and Tom Hamburger report:
“The House Jan. 6 committee has waged high-profile legal battles with Donald Trump and his closest allies as it tries to uncover every detail of what happened that day and determine what culpability the former president may have for the violent attack on the Capitol. But it has also been focused on another part of its inquiry that panel members said is of equal importance to the success of the investigation — tracing every dollar that was raised and spent on false claims that the election was stolen.”
The piece continued, “A number of individuals from the Trump campaign, the RNC and digital firms involved with post-election fundraising practices have been cooperating with the green team. The committee recently asked questions of Gary Coby, the Trump campaign’s top digital fundraising guru, and has interviewed both campaign and RNC staff, according to multiple people familiar with the matter. They have also questioned Brad Parscale, the former Trump campaign manager, and interviewed people who worked for him.”
