When will the Trump witch hunt end.
On Monday (March 14), following former President Donald Trump’s rally in South Carolina over the weekend, Democratic PAC American Bridge 21st Century accused the former President of breaking campaign finance laws.
In their formal complaint, the group cites Trump’s spending of political funds sans officially launching a presidential bid.
The group announced it had filed a formal complaint with the Federal Election Commission to The New York Times, noting that they had used Trump’s own words to substantiate allegations in the complaint.
Jessica Floyd, the committee’s president said Trump “should have to adhere to the law in a way that all other candidates do,” adding, “When he says, “I’m going to do it a third time,” that’s not flirting. That’s more than a toe dip.”
American Bridge also referenced a quote Trump made late last year, when he stated, “I know what I’m going to do, but we’re not supposed to be talking about it yet from the standpoint of campaign finance laws.”
Trump made these remarks during a visit to the New York Police Department’s 17th precinct to mark the 20th anniversary of the September 11 attacks.
Federal finance rules state that anyone who raises or spends more than $5,000 to support a Presidential campaign must make a filing with the FEC.
But Trump’s team has pushed back against the complaint.
Also speaking to The New York Times, Trump’s spokesperson Taylor Budowich said, “America is spiraling into disaster because of the Democrats’ failures, and instead of reversing course, they are busy filing frivolous complaints that have zero merit.”
During his rally in South Carolina, the former President alluded to his 2024 Presidential campaign again when he riled up the crowd, stating, “In 2024, we are going to take back that beautiful White House.”
