CLC v. 45Committee, Inc.: U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia—Complaint

On April 22, 2022, Campaign Legal Center (CLC) filed suit against 45Committee, a secret money group that spent as much as $38 million in 2016 to help elect former President Donald Trump. The suit alleges that 45Committee failed to register as a political committee as required by federal law, thereby avoiding disclosure of its donors and spending.
