Although they stopped paying the president’s legal bills in the Russia probe, the Republican National Committee is now paying him tens of thousands of dollars in rent for his reelection campaign.
CNBC reported Friday that the RNC is paying $37,000 a month to rent office space in the flagship Trump Tower in Manhattan.
In addition to the hefty rent fees, the committee also pays a high monthly salary to Vice President Mike Pence’s nephew John. The younger Pence appears to make $12,000 a month working for the Trump campaign per CNBC’s analysis of tax withholding information.
The RNC has paid more than $290,000 for Trump 2020 campaign expenses since September, which includes Trump Tower rent and Pence’s salary.
