“White House Official May Have Violated Campaign Finance Laws”

Mother Jones:

top White House national security official may have violated federal law by using campaign funds for personal business, campaign finance experts tell Mother Jones.

K.T. McFarland—who currently serves as President Donald Trump’s deputy national security adviser—appears to have used thousands of dollars of campaign money several years ago for the design and maintenance of a website promoting her work as a paid political pundit and for payments to a self-described “agent for expert commentators who enjoy being frequent guests on talk radio and TV.”

“Payments for a website to promote her business appear to be an illegal personal use of campaign funds,” says Lawrence Noble of the Campaign Legal Center.
