As if Brad Parscale didn’t have enough on his plate already, what with all of the alleged suicidal behavior and involuntary hospitalization going on this week. Now somebody is spreading rumors suggesting that he’s under investigation for “stealing” tens of millions of dollars from the Trump reelection campaign and from the RNC as well. We’ll take a look at the story just in case it develops into something substantial, but we should note a couple of things up front. This allegation is coming from the Daily Mail, so… make of that what you will. And they’re basing it on claims provided to them by a single, anonymous, “highly placed source” inside the Trump campaign. And as we’ll get to in a moment, even the supposed victims of this “theft” are unaware of any money going missing.
Donald Trump’s demoted campaign boss Brad Parscale is under investigation for ‘stealing’ between $25-$40 million from Trump’s 2020 presidential campaign, well-placed sources exclusively told DailyMail.com.
The 44-year-old is also being investigated for ‘pocketing’ nearly another $10 million from the Republican National Committee, the insiders added.
The revelation comes as Parscale was involuntarily committed to a hospital by Fort Lauderdale police on Sunday following a concerning episode at his $2.4 million Florida home…
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.
As I suggested above, there are more than a few reasons to doubt this “exclusive” story. First of all, Trump’s Communications Director immediately came out and said the rumor was “‘utterly false. There is no investigation, no audit, and there never was.” On top of that, Steve Guest of the RNC called the story “categorically false,” going on to say that there was no audit or investigation of the kind taking place. I reached out to Steve myself this morning and he told me the same thing.
