Over the weekend, Donald Trump’s former campaign manager Brad Parscale was arrested and accused of committing domestic violence. On Wednesday, Vanity Fair reported that members of the Trump family are worried that he will turn on them and the authorities pursue a campaign finance investigation into them to save his own skin.
“Parscale’s public meltdown happened while he is reportedly under investigation for stealing from the Trump campaign and the RNC,” reported Gabriel Sherman. “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,’ the source said.”
Trump campaign communications director Tim Murtaugh has denied this reporting, saying, “It’s utterly false. There is no investigation, no audit, and there never was.”
While Murtaugh might deny the reporting, the Trump campaign has already started to distance themselves from Parscale. On Wednesday, he was removed from the campaign’s website.
