Report: Parscale Under Investigation For ‘Stealing’ $25-$40M From Trump Campaign
The Daily Mail reported Tuesday that former Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale is being investigated for “stealing” up to $40 million from the 2020 Trump campaign and another $10 million from the Republican National Committee.
The publication cited “well-placed sources” in its report, though RNC Rapid Response Director Steve Guest called the report “categorically false,” adding: :There is no audit or investigation of Brad at the RNC.”
Per The Daily Mail:
A Trump insider explained to DailyMail.com that Parscale went into a tailspin after he was demoted in July and replaced by his former number two, Bill Stepien, as he's worried about the 'gravy train' ending and keeping up with his lavish lifestyle.
It was widely reported that the President lost faith in Parscale after a much-trumpeted campaign rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma drew a dismal crowd, relegating him to his previous role in digital and data strategy.
The source said that Trump ordered an audit of RNC spending just days later.
The probe appeared to be geared towards examining Parscale's handling of the campaign's money, the source said, putting the 6ft 8in aide under 'tremendous pressure'.
The source explained: 'The thing about what Parscale did with the finances of the campaign could actually be totally legal.’
On Sunday, Parscale was involuntarily hospitalized after his wife called police saying he might be suicidal and was acting “irate” with a loaded firearm.
