Dates on Trump File reflect when something happens, not when it’s first reported.
Sometime in June (date unknown), Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale and campaign lawyer Alex Cannon meet with Parler executives at Mar-a-Lago to discuss having Trump use the app.
Parler CEO John Matze and shareholders Dan Bongino and Jeffrey Wernick are at the meeting. They offer the Trump Organization 40% of the company if Donald Trump joins.
The White House stops discussions soon after out of fears that the deal would violate ethics rules.
