Report: Team Trump is Worried Parscale Will Spill Beans on Campaign Finance Violations
On Sunday night, the New York Times dropped a bombshell report of Donald Trump’s history of tax returns. The article outlined not only the massive business failures of the president but also the miniscule amount he has been paying to the government.
Unbelievably, someone in Trump’s circle had an even worse weekend than he did. Former campaign manager Brad Parscale had police come to his home after he allegedly beat his wife and threatened to kill himself. And now, according to Vanity Fair, the Trump team is worried that Parscale could spill the beans on what may have happened within the campaign.
Gabriel Sherman writes, “According to the source close to the campaign, the Trump family is worried that Parscale could turn on them and cooperate with law enforcement about possible campaign finance violations. ‘The family is worried Brad will start talking.'”
In June, Parscale was demoted from his position as campaign manager to a lower position within the team. For months, there had been rumors that the adviser had been lavishly spending campaign funds.
This spending has become evident in the way that the Trump campaign is being outspent by Joe Biden’s team. Trump addressed these concerns earlier this month, tweeting, “My Campaign spent a lot of money up front in order to compensate for the false reporting and Fake News concerning our handling of the China Virus. Now they see the GREAT job we have done, and we have 3 times more than we had 4 years ago – & are up in polls.”
