"President Donald Trump’s reelection campaign has "disguised nearly $170 million" worth of campaign spending "by laundering the funds" through companies led by the former campaign manager Brad Parscale or created by Trump campaign lawyers, a new complaint with the Federal Election Commission says.
The 82-page complaint, filed Tuesday by the Campaign Legal Center, contends that the Trump campaign’s spending practices have the practical effect of masking payments — in violation of federal campaign-transparency rules — to various advertising contractors and senior Trump campaign staff and family members, including Lara Trump, the wife of the president’s son Eric Trump, and Kimberly Guilfoyle, the girlfriend of Donald Trump Jr.
"Voters have a clear right under the law to know how campaigns are spending money to influence elections," said Trevor Potter, the Campaign Legal Center’s president and a former Republican chairman of the FEC. "Without this information, they certainly should be asking, ‘what is the Trump campaign hiding?’"
Much of the Campaign Legal Center’s complaint focuses on American Made Media Consultants, a Delaware-based company formed in 2018 and supported by the Trump campaign to coordinate its massive ad-buying program."
