House Russia probe considers expanding to Trump digital director: report
The House Intelligence Committee’s investigation into possible ties between President Trump’s election campaign and Russia may soon expand to include another Trump campaign official.
Brad Parscale, the digital director of Trump’s 2016 campaign, is expected to be invited to speak with the committee as they begin scheduling witnesses over the summer, according to CNN.
Parscale was a key member of Trump’s campaign, which he joined after running the Trump Organization’s digital operations. He oversaw online advertising and voter targeting for the campaign.
The committee’s investigation has ramped up in recent weeks by issuing subpoenas to former national security adviser Michael Flynn and one of his companies, as well as to longtime Trump lawyer Michael Cohen.
The news also comes as the ranking Democrat on the committee, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) is pushing for the committee to include obstruction of justice a possible charge in its investigation. Schiff pushed for its inclusion in his committee after the Senate Intelligence Committee announced it would leave investigating obstruction of justice to special counsel Robert Mueller.
