A former North Carolina staffer for Donald Trump's presidential campaign is claiming in a lawsuit that its then-state director pulled a gun on him, and that senior campaign officials refused to take action for the incident. The lawsuit was filed Wednesday by Vincent Bordini against Earl Phillip and the Trump campaign in Mecklenburg County Superior Court.
The suit alleges that Bordini was a passenger in Phillip's Jeep in February when Phillip "produced a pistol, put his right index finger on the trigger and drove the barrel into Vincent's knee cap." So basically it sounds like a scene from the The Sopranos. Bordini said he reported the incident to several Trump campaign officials, including then-campaign manager Corey Lewandowski, with no results.
WCCB reports that Phillip resigned from the Trump campaign this week, just after he was promoted to deputy chair of the National Diversity Coalition for Trump. Neither he nor the Trump campaign have made official statements or responses regarding the lawsuit.
