The Campaign Legal Center, a nonpartisan campaign finance watchdog group, filed a complaint with the Federal Elections Commission Tuesday accusing the Trump campaign of “laundering” $170 million through numerous companies, some with connections to former Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale.

The complaint alleges:

  • Both the Trump campaign and Trump Make America Great Again Committee disguised nearly $170 million of campaign spending by laundering the funds through firms.
  • Many of these firms are “headed by Trump’s recent campaign manager, Brad Parscale, and/or created by Trump campaign lawyers.”
  • The campaign paid millions of dollars to these firms without reporting it to the FEC.
  • American Made Media Consultants (AMMC), a firm created by Parscale received $106 million.
