The RNC spent over $250K at Trump’s properties in February — and is still bankrolling his longtime personal bodyguard

Published

The Republican National Committee spent at least $270,000 at Trump properties in February, the group’s latest fundraising filings show.

BuzzFeed News reported Tuesday that the RNC’s latest Federal Election Commission filings reveal the group used the D.C. Trump International Hotel and the Trump National Doran Miami hotel for “catering and venue services.”

The payments join “the nearly $2 million Republican campaigns and groups have already spent at President Donald Trump’s businesses during his presidency,” BuzzFeed noted.

Along with the hefty payouts to Trump hotels, the RNC is also still paying $15,000 a month to KS Global, the security firm run by the president’s longtime personal bodyguard Keith Schiller. Filings show he is “being paid from the committee’s convention account for security consulting on the site selection process for the 2020 Republican National Convention,” and has been on their payroll since shortly after he left the White House last October.

After analysis of the latest RNC filings were published, the Washington Examiner reported that the group is holding their spring meeting at the Miami Trump hotel in May. It’s unclear whether the hotel booking, which will be a planning meeting for the 2020 Republican National Convention, was reflected on the RNC’s February filings.
