The Trump campaign's data and digital director will speak with the House Intelligence Committee as part of its investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election.
Brad Parscale said in a statement Friday he is "unaware of any Russian involvement" in the Trump campaign's digital and data operations, but agreed to meet with the House Intelligence Committee for a interview.
"I am unaware of any Russian involvement in the digital and data operations of the 2016 Trump president campaign," Parscale said in the statement, posted to his Twitter account. "The Trump digital campaign used the exact same digital marketing strategies that are used every day by corporate America. The only collaboration I am aware of in the Trump digital campaign was with staff provided to the campaign by Facebook, Google and Twitter. Those experts in digital marketing worked side-by-side with our teams from Giles-Parscale, the Republican National Committee, and Cambridge Analytica to run a professional and winning campaign.
"I have accepted a request from the House Intelligence Committee to meet with them for a voluntary interview, and I look forward to sharing with them everything I know."
Rep. Adam Schiff, the House Intelligence Committee's top Democrat, said last month the committee wants to examine whether President Trump's campaign team coordinated with Russia to distribute fake and negative stories about Hillary Clinton.
"We are very interested in finding out 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," Schiff told MSNBC last month.
McClatchy reported earlier this week the House and Senate Intelligence Committee, and the Justice Department, are investigating whether the Trump campaign's digital operation helped direct Russian cyber operatives toward specific voters to target with fake and damaging stories about Clinton.
