NBC News reports:
David Bossie, who was recently tasked to head President Trump’s re-election legal challenges, tested positive for Covid-19 on Sunday, two sources familiar with the matter confirmed to NBC News.
“Because he can’t be at the campaign headquarters and he can’t be in the Oval Office [due to his diagnosis] Dave’s no longer a part of the decision-making process,” one of the sources said.
Bossie, who heads the conservative advocacy group Citizens United, is apparently at home and feeling OK, the source said, noting that it’s particularly problematic that Bossie is now “sidelined” from the legal push he was supposed to lead.
DAVID BOSSIE has been leading Trump’s post-election political and legal battle. The president tapped him for the role last week when his chief of staff, Mark Meadows, fell ill with the coronavirus. Bossie now has the virus also.
