Unlike Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson, the Democratic-funded operative hired to dig up dirt on President Trump who just cancelled his appointment to voluntarily testify in front of the House Intelligence committee; Brad Parscale, who served as the data and digital director for President Trump’s campaign said on Friday that he will testify gladly.
In a statement published online, Parscale said he is “unaware of any Russian involvement” in the digital operations of Trump’s campaign and looks forward to “sharing with them everything I know.”

Rep. Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, has told reporters that the group is researching “whether there was an effort to make use of data analytics — whether there was Russian funding or support for that, or Russian assistance in any way with gathering data that could be used by the campaign or any associates of the campaign.” Because of his role in the campaign, Parscale is central to that part of the investigation.
Since 2011, he has worked on websites for the Trump Organization and Ivanka Trump. Reportedly, he urged candidate Trump to embrace a digital strategy after Trump had called it “overrated.”
The Trump campaign paid Parscale’s San Antonio, Texas-based company more than $90 million to spearhead all things digital, including advertising on social media and analyzing voter data.
In the interview below, he explains that the Trump campaign “used the exact same digital marketing strategies that are used every day by corporate America.”
