Trump aid behind Holocaust Memorial Day controversial statement found to have been involved in bar brawl — Trump attracts the “best” people!
Epshteyn, 34, pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor assault charge and was sentenced to attend counseling, perform 25 hours of community service, and pay about $360 in fines and court costs. He was also barred from having contact with the victim or returning to Whiskey Row, the business where he was arrested. More from the Smoking Gun.
Once Trump was elected, Epshteyn was one of the first people to be brought into the new administration. Aside from his role as serving as one of the administration’s spokespersons, Epshteyn was also reportedly behind the White House’s controversial International Holocaust Memorial Day address. The White House’s comments drew fire because they made no mention of the six million Jews who were killed by the Nazis.
