First on CNN: House Russia investigators want to bring in Trump digital director

Source: CNN

House Russia investigators are planning to call on Brad Parscale, the digital director of President Donald Trump's campaign, as the congressional and federal probes dig into any possible connections between the Trump digital operation and Russian operatives, congressional sources said this week.

The House Russia investigation is planning to send an invite to Parscale soon, as they begin scheduling witnesses over the summer, sources said. The Senate intelligence committee is also interested in how Russian bots were able to target political messages in specific districts in critical swing states, although it is not clear if Parscale will be called before the Senate panel as well.

The news from the House comes as federal investigators have dug into Jared Kushner's role overseeing Trump's data operation -- although he has not been identified as a target of the probe. Kushner is expected to talk soon with Senate investigators about the campaign's data operation.

Parscale played a critical role behind the scenes on the Trump campaign, directing online spending and voter targeting with the use of a highly sophisticated data bank built by the Republican National Committee. Parscale, was running the Trump Organization's digital operation in early 2015, when he was hired onto the Trump campaign -- months before Trump officially announced his bid.

2. So. Do. I.

I think his Cambridge Analytica may have had an instrumental role in providing data to Russian hackers, allowing them to surgically target voters and precincts.

10. Wouldn't that be great? And very well deserved.

So far, those folks never have any consequences to face for their bad, anti-social, and tragically selfish behavior.

14. From Rick Wilson

A little bird tells me that a certain White House staff member whose name rhymes with Beeve Stannon is crapping diamonds over Parscale.

20. I didn't know he had a digital director. Yes, they should talk to him, for sure.

He's probably just a salaried guy, so here it gets sticky. He can't afford the high priced Washington criminal attorneys like Pence got. I wonder if Trump will pay for his attorney (well, SAY he's going to pay for it...but of course he'll stiff both the employee and the lawyer).

I imagine the staffers are very worried by now. Wonder what they'll do. Sing like birds, or leave and hope they won't be important enough to be called to testify.
