Trump calls on Super PACs supporting his bid to return money
NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump is
denouncing the outside political action committees supporting his candidacy,
demanding they return the money they've collected, and calling on his
opponents to do the same.
Trump's campaign announced Friday that its counsel had sent legal notices to
a handful of what they describe as "unauthorized" super PACs supporting his
bid, demanding they return any money they've raised in support of his
candidacy.
"I am self-funding my campaign and therefore I will not be controlled by the
donors, special interests and lobbyists who have corrupted our politics and
politicians for far too long," Trump said in a statement announcing the
effort. "I have disavowed all super PAC's, requested the return of all
donations made to said PAC's, and I am calling on all Presidential
candidates to do the same."
The announcement comes after a series of negative reports by The Washington
Post pointing to connections between Mike Ciletti, who was running the super
PAC Make America Great Again, and Trump's campaign. Ciletti confirmed in an
email Friday the PAC is planning to cease operations following the scrutiny.
The paper reported that the PAC appeared to have used contact information
provided by a Trump aide to contact potential donors.
Trump's campaign has also been working with two companies associated with
Ciletti, according to campaign finance and business records, the paper
reported. And Trump appeared at several of the PACs events, including what
the campaign described at the time as a meet-and-greet at Trump's daughter's
in-laws home over the summer.
In the letter to Make America Great Again PAC sent Wednesday, a Trump
campaign attorney notes the group's website uses Trump's name, image and
slogan. He raised concern that "potential supporters could be easily
confused that when they make a contribution to your organization, they are
supporting Donald J. Trump for President's campaign, or that your efforts
have been sanctioned or otherwise authorized by him."
Under campaign finance regulations, super PACs can raise unlimited
contributions, but must disclose their donors and are specifically barred
from coordinating with campaigns.
Paul Ryan, of the Campaign Legal Center, said that makes it difficult for
Trump's campaign to regulate the groups' actions.
"Under the campaign finance laws, they have zero authority," he said.
Trump, a billionaire businessman and entertainer, has boasted about turning
down big-dollar contributions and said he is self-funding his campaign — a
pitch that appeals to backers weary of the role of money in politics.
But financial disclosures released this month show the majority of Trump's
expenses in recent months have, in fact, been covered by contributions from
donors, including thousands of small-dollar checks.
The Supreme Court's Citizens United decision in 2010 dramatically changed
the way campaigns operate, and this cycle has become a test of the
boundaries for such big-money groups.
