Trump Staffer Turns On Trump – Goes Public With Private Texts

OPINION:  This article contains commentary which may reflect the author’s opinion

An ex-employee of Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign has disclosed what’s being described as explosive text messages alleging that the former president’s 2020 campaign resolved numerous legal cases about gender discrimination and sexual harassment.

A.J. Delgado disclosed this information as part of her ongoing complaint for discrimination against the current campaign, claiming that she was sexually assaulted by Trump aide Jason Miller. The motion she submitted on Thursday contained a series of text messages that she alleges were exchanged between her and Jenna Ellis, another former member of the Trump administration.

“Jenna, [between] us, do you know of anyone who complained of gender discrimination, pregnancy discrimination, or sexual harassment, in the 2020 campaign? Do you know if the 2020 campaign settled any lawsuits regarding such?” Delgado allegedly asks Ellis, according to The New Republic.

“Yes. Off record—Boris. The campaign settled multiple suits,” Ellis allegedly says in response. “Have your investigator subpoena Michael Glassner.” The individual in question was a campaign strategist for Trump’s 2020 campaign.

“I will of course tell you the truth. We may not agree on everything, but I will support you,” Ellis allegedly adds in her texts with Delgado.

While the name “Boris” is mentioned in the letters, some media sources have theorized that it may be referring to Boris Epshteyn, a prominent advisor to Trump’s 2020 campaign and a trusted associate of the previous president.

Delgado has already stated under oath that Trump’s 2016 campaign employed intermediaries to make secret payments aimed at concealing discriminatory settlements from the public, including the Federal Election Commission.

Trump was found guilty by a jury in Manhattan on 34 charges related to falsifying business documents in order to make hush money payments to adult film actress Stormy Daniels during the 2016 election.

“In other words, the payment would be routed through a middleman, to hide the fact that the Campaign had settled, from the public and the FEC,” Delgado said in a sworn court declaration. “I thus have direct, personal experience with the Defendant-Campaign hiding settlement payments to women, routing them through a ‘middleman law firm,’ which to the public would only appear as payments ‘for legal services.’”
