The Huffington Post: Melania Trump Speech Appears To Be An Illegal Campaign Contribution
Larry Noble, general counsel at the Campaign Legal Center and former general counsel for the FEC, agreed that McIvers’ role “raises a lot of red flags.”
Those red flags include the use of company letterhead and the fact that McIver never mentions working for the campaign in her offer to resign from the corporation. Noble said that the campaign could technically pay the Trump Organization for an employee’s work, but he added that Trump’s use of his company employees looks to be unprecedented in modern political campaigns.
“It raises the question of whether anyone who works for the corporation also works for the campaign,” Noble said. The Trump campaign’s use of Trump Organization resources is “on a scale we’ve never seen before.”
