    I doubt this story. 1st Murcer(sic) gave started KtP1 with 10million of his own money. This is the same guy that owns BN. 2nd there were way too many never trumpers working there. Granted they left but it still remains BN was a safe havean for el rafael jr. This is only coming out bc of wikileaks and all the corporate media are taking a hit.

    As a primary Cruz supporter Breitbart did nothing to lessen my support. Cruz shot himself in the foot when he refused to support Trump at the convention. Now he will probably have a primary opponent next cycle if he chooses to run again. Since switching my allegiance, I go to Breitbart to get a daily dose of encouragement.
