Think Progress: Hannity Will Stop At Nothing To Help Trump. He May Have Finally Gone Too Far.
Is the trip only Hannity’s business? Hannity seems to believe his jet was not a campaign contribution but a gift to a “dear friend of mine” and “a private citizen.”
Paul S. Ryan, a campaign finance expert with the Campaign Legal Center, disagrees.
According to Ryan, if the Associated Press’ report is accurate that the meeting was arranged at the request of the Trump campaign, the cost of the private jet would be an in-kind contribution to the Trump campaign, subject to the $2700 limit.
If Trump failed to report Hannity’s in-kind contribution on their next report, Ryan said, that would be illegal.
