UPR: Trump's Campaign Paid Millions To His Own Properties, FEC Documents Say
Campaigns are supposed to pay "fair market value" for goods and services they use, but determining what that is can sometimes be difficult, says Larry Noble, general counsel of the nonprofit Campaign Legal Center.
"Sometimes it causes problems. The question is, what is fair market value? We've never seen it on this kind of scale," he said.
Noble notes that last month, Trump took the unusual step of announcing his candidacy for re-election in 2020. Most presidents wait to do so until after the midterm congressional elections, he said.
