VF: Trump Family Fears Parscale Will Tell Cops About Campaign Finance Violations
Following Brad Parscale’s run-in with police last weekend, members of the Trump family are worried that the former Trump campaign manager might start talking to law enforcement about potential wrongdoing within the campaign, Vanity Fair reports.
- Citing a source close to the campaign, Vanity Fair reported: “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,” the source said.
- Parscale was taken into custody on Sunday outside his Ft. Lauderdale home allegedly threatening suicide. He was involuntarily hospitalized after the incident, which saw police tackle him to the ground.
- Vanity Fair also noted that Parscale’s most recent trouble came as he is reportedly under investigation for stealing from the Trump campaign and the Republican National Committee.
- However, Tim Murtaugh, the Trump campaign’s communications director, said reports of an investigation are “utterly false.”
- “There is no investigation, no audit, and there never was,” Murtaugh said.
