Former President Donald Trump’s former campaign manager is admitting to stealing millions of dollars from his employer.
Robert Mook, who served as communications director for the 2016 election, admitted Monday that he stole the money while working for Trump.
Mook said he left the campaign to take care of his two children, who were in college.
He said he was working in the transition office when he heard from a friend that Trump’s campaign manager had stolen $3.5 million.
Mooks lawyer said he believed Mook was the one who stole the funds.
The Washington Post has learned that Mook has pleaded guilty to federal securities fraud charges.
He faces up to 20 years in prison.
Moody’s Investors Service, which had previously rated Mook as “high” risk, downgraded his credit rating.
Mullins and his attorney did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
