Brad Parscale Faces Investigation for ‘Stealing’ $40 Million From Trump Campaign: Report

Published

on

Embattled former Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale has been accused of “stealing” up to $40 million from President Donald Trump’s campaign and $10 million from the Republican National Committee.

The Daily Mail first reported that Parscale is suspected of pocketing the money.

According to 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.

Trump demoted Parscale as campaign manager earlier this year after his Florida lifestyle attracted media attention. Daily Mail sources said Trump ordered a review of RNC finances just days after Parscale’s demotion.

RNC Rapid Response Director Steve Guest denied that Parscale is being investigated.

“This report is categorically false,” Guest said in a statement. “There is no audit or investigation of Brad at the RNC.”

Reports on Sunday revealed that Parscale was hospitalized after a tense standoff with police and allegedly threatening to commit suicide.

Democratic Congressman Accuses Lindsey Graham of Committing a Crime ‘In Plain Sight’

Published

on

U.S. Congressman Eric Swalwell (D-CA) is accusing embattled South Carolina Republican Senator Lindsey Graham of committing a crime.

Graham is the chairman of the Judiciary Committee, and clearly in the video below is linking his efforts to push through the nomination of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to his efforts to keep his Senate seat.

While that may not be illegal, Graham, who is facing a possible loss in his very close re-election battle, appears to be soliciting campaign contributions while in a federal building, which is a crime, according to Rep. Swalwell.

Intercept reporter Aída Chávez, who posted this video of Graham, agrees.

This was Rep. Swalwell’s response to Graham’s solicitation:

Top elections attorney Marc Elias also appears to agree:

As does attorney Kendyl Hanks:

Mike Flynn’s Lawyer Just Admitted to a Federal Judge She’s Been Talking to Trump About His Case

Published

on

The attorney for disgraced former Trump national security adviser and convicted felon Mike Flynn has just admitted to a federal judge she has been talking with President Donald Trump about her client’s case – and that she personally asked the president to not pardon Flynn.

Sydney Powell, a former federal prosecutor turned conspiracy theorist, QAnon-signaler, and pro-MAGA anti-“deep state” personality, was asked by U.S. District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan, if she’s been in contact with Trump.

Politico’s Kyle Cheney provides the back-and-forth:

Powell actually tries to invoke executive privilege – to which she has no right since she does not work for the administration.

And then, this bombshell:

Former federal prosecutor, now an NBC and MSNBC legal analyst Glenn Kirschner sugggests things got a little wild in the courtroom:

At issue: Flynn and the DOJ are trying to have the case dismissed – after Flynn pleaded guilty, twice, before the judge. Attorney General Bill Barr has been accused of working to protect Trump’s allies.

This is a breaking news and developing story. Details may change.

‘Brad Parscale Hits Her’: Disturbing Details Emerge From Police Report of Ex-Trump Campaign Manager

Published

on

A police report is revealing disturbing details from Sunday’s incident at the home of former Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale. Parscale was involuntarily hospitalized under a Florida law allowing police to detain anyone deemed a threat to themselves or others.

“While speaking with Candace Parscale I noticed several large sized contusions on both of her arms, her cheek and forehead,” officer Steven Smith wrote in the police report, according to the Miami Herald. “When I asked how she received the bruising, Candace Parscale stated Brad Parscale hits her.”

The Herald adds that Parscale had “racked and loaded a handgun during an argument” with his wife.

“Parscale’s wife,” whose name is actually “Candice,” “told them her husband had not hit her Sunday, but had smacked her phone out of her hand when she tried to call his father. She said she heard a gunshot from inside the house after ‘fleeing,’ but later said it might have been a car backfiring.”

Candice Parscale had called 911, telling police he “had guns and was threatening to harm himself, Fort Lauderdale police said Sunday night,” the Sun-Sentinel reported.

Police confiscated 10 guns from Parscale’s home, including rifles. Brad Parscale is listed as “Bradley” in the police report.

“Candace immediately fled [the] residence and stated she heard a loud bang shortly after,” the incident report continued, according to Local10.com, an ABC affiliate. “Candace stated that they realized that Bradley did not shoot himself when they heard Bradley ranting and pacing around the residence and the dog barking franticly. However, they were concerned that Bradley might still try to shoot himself, due to him being in possession of several firearms and refusing to vacate the residence.”

“[Parscale’s] speech was slurred as though he was under the influence of an alcoholic beverage and he seemed to be crying,” police officer Timothy Skaggs wrote in his report. “Due to his refusal [to] exit the residence on his own free will and his emotional state, crisis negotiators were requested.”

“Brad was drinking a beer and was clearly intoxicated,” officer Christopher Wilson, who is also a friend of Parscale wrote in the report.

NBC News’ Tom Winter adds Candice Parscale told police Brad has been “depressed and suicidal recently.”
