The Donald Trump campaign is facing more accusations of anti-Semitism. This time the finger is being pointed at one of his newest advisers, Joseph Schmitz.
In a complaint cited by McClatchy, Schmitz is accused of discriminating against Jewish employees while he was the Defense Department's inspector general. The report claims three people confirmed these allegations, including one who testified under oath. All three reportedly have upcoming "employment grievance" cases with the government.
Schmitz denies the claims, saying he doesn't remember such allegations being made against him. He added that he's "quite proud of the Jewish heritage" of his wife.
