Former campaign manager

Brad Parscale regrets helping Donald Trump get elected, and confessed to another campaign official he holds the former president responsible for the January 6 insurrection, and for the death of Ashli Babbitt. Texts Parscale sent to Katrina Pierson on Jan. 6, 2021, were revealed in the U.S. House Select Committee on the January 6 Attack’s hearing on Tuesday.

“So contrary to what Republicans claim, Trump did incite the Capitol attack — per Brad Parscale,” The Guardian’s Hugo Lowell notes.

In one text message the Committee shared between Parscale and Trump campaign spokesperson Katrina Pierson, Parscale says: “A sitting president asking for civil war,” referring to his former boss.

In another text, Parscale says, “I feel guilty for helping him win.”

At one point Pierson tries to console Parscale, saying he worked for Trump because he thought it was the “right” thing to do.

“Yeah, but a woman is dead,” Parscasle replied, presumably referring to Ashli Babbitt. He also texted, “if I was Trump and I knew my rhetoric killed someone.”
