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.
Iowa Certifies Republican Congressional Candidate as Winner by SIX VOTES
The closest congressional election in decades.
The Iowa State Board of Canvass voted on Monday to certify a Republican congressional candidate as the winner of an election for the state’s 2nd district, with a recount leaving Mariannette Miller-Meeks up on Democrat Rita Hart by a mere six votes.
The final standing result for the election of Iowa’s 2nd congressional district leaves Miller-Meeks with 196,964 votes, and Hart with 196,568 votes. Miller-Meeks’ margin of victory had stood at 47 votes before a mandatory recount, dwindling to a final lead of a half dozen. The election is slated to become the closes congressional race in the United States since 1984, and the closest in Iowa since 1916.
Hart is expected to legally challenge the vote after Monday’s certification. A GOP victory in the Democrat-leaning swing district would be the 14th Republican pickup this year, significantly eroding the Democrat majority in the House of Representatives.
“While the race is extraordinarily close, I am proud to have won this contest and look forward to being certified as the winner,” said Miller-Meeks, an Iowa State Senator representing Ottumwa on Saturday when declaring victory. “It is the honor of a lifetime to be elected to serve the people of eastern and southern Iowa. Iowans are tenacious, optimistic and hardworking, and I will take those same attributes to Washington, D.C., on their behalf.”
The recount process had proven dramatic, with results of Miller-Meeks’ outstanding lead placed in jeopardy when a recount board identified and counted dozens of absentee ballots that weren’t previously accounted for. It’s likely Hart will litigate in hopes of getting county clerks to count additional ballots that had been ruled unlawful.
As the nation demands answers to allegations of pervasive election misconduct and voter fraud, it’s worth noting that only a handful of ballots can overturn the end result of many local, county, and state elections. Let no illegal ballot infiltrate the final count, and let no legal vote go uncounted.
