Earl Phillip, the respected black state director for President Donald Trump’s 2016 North Carolina campaign, was cleared of all civil charges brought by an ex-staffer who claimed that Phillip pulled a gun on him. The suit was dismissed after accuser Vincent Bordini sent an affidavit clearing Phillips’ name.
Phillip says that an anti-Trump operation tried to bounce him out of the state director position so that they could steer Trump’s campaign in North Carolina into the ground. Trump won North Carolina by more than three and a half points.
Phillip lost his job on the Trump campaign in August after mainstream reports about the lawsuit. Phillip had just moved from the state operation to a deputy director role on Trump’s National Diversity Coalition.
“It was a big blow to me personally from a person who I thought was an ally. But he was only out for the greenbacks,” Phillip told Big League Politics in an interview, referring to Bordini.
“I’ve been in the business for quite some time, and I knew that if I stayed there it would have brought unwanted and unnecessary attention to the campaign. My number one priority was to make sure that the campaign was successful,” Phillip said.
“I really can’t talk to that right now,” Phillip said of the conspiracy. “Vincent Bordini proved that this wasn’t true by throwing in the white towel two days before we went to trial. Greed supersedes everything in some people.”
After the campaign, Phillip said he couldn’t get hired because his Google search results show the false allegation. “It’s been a very rough 19 months.”
Phillip thanked his attorney for “lifting this burden off me and my family.”
“This was nothing more than a well orchestrated character assassination by Vincent and his supporters,” Phillip said in a formal statement provided to Big League Politics.
“I believe it was a power play. It was all about control. The goal of these individuals was to have me removed as State Director of the Trump Campaign so they could install their handpicked puppet,” Phillip said.
“None of the people involved in this covert effort to ruin my name and credibility supported Mr. Trump during the primary. They were mostly supporters of Cruz or Rubio that tried to use me in an attempt to cause a distraction in hopes of hurting Mr. Trump’s chances of winning. I’m a married man with a family. I’m a veteran. My name and credibility means a lot to me and these people conjured up a lie to discredit me all in the name of politics. It’s disgusting and unfair,” Phillip stated.
President Donald Trump Urges House Republicans to Vote Against Re-Authorizing FISA Secret Courts
Trump has learned the right lesson from the Russian collusion madness.
President Donald Trump is pushing back against the deep state by urging House Republicans to reject the re-authorization of the FISA secret court system.
He made the announcement in a tweet issued on Tuesday evening.
I hope all Republican House Members vote NO on FISA until such time as our Country is able to determine how and why the greatest political, criminal, and subversive scandal in USA history took place!

The Russian collusion investigation was made possible due to the FISA secret courts, which essentially rubber-stamped all kinds of illicit spying on the President and his associates.
The FISA court threw the FBI under the bus in the aftermath of the Russia-gate farce that exposed the treachery of the federal government:
The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court issued a sharp rebuke of the FBI on Tuesday, accusing them of “so many basic and fundamental errors” in filing the surveillance application for former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.
“The FBI’s handling of the Carter Page applications, as portrayed in the OIG report, was antithetical to the heightened duty of candor described above,” Rosemary Collyer, presiding judge with the FISC, wrote in an order to the FBI released by the court…
Inspector General Michael Horowitz detailed a comedy of errors from an FBI that has proven itself to be ridiculously incompetent or malicious in its attempts to pin Russian collusion on President Trump and his close associates.
Collyer said that the report has presented “troubling instances in which FBI personnel provided information to NSD [the National Security Division of the Justice Department] which was unsupported or contradicted by information in their possession.”
“The frequency with which representations made by FBI personnel turned out to be unsupported or contradicted by information in their possession, and with which they withheld information detrimental to their case, calls into question whether information contained in other FBI applications is reliable,” Collyer wrote.
“The FISC expects the government to provide complete and accurate information in every filing with the Court. Without it, the FISC cannot properly ensure that the government conducts electronic surveillance for foreign intelligence purposes only when there is a sufficient factual basis,” she added.
President Trump has come out against FISA after many talks with Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), who has been leading the charge against the unconstitutional secret court system since long before Russia-gate.
“It flies in the face of our Constitution that a secret court can authorize invading an innocent American’s privacy. Recent months have once again made all too clear how such a system leads to abuse. It’s time for Congress to stop paying lip service to reform and pass real safeguards that respect Americans’ rights. What happened to General Flynn and President Trump should never be allowed to happen again,” Paul said earlier this year.
The House is expected to vote on FISA re-authorization Wednesday morning. President Trump hopes that his words can influence Republicans into doing the right thing and pushing back against an intelligence community that has clearly run amok.
