The husband of White House counselor Kellyanne Conway shared a link to Federal Election Commission (FEC) rules after it was revealed that President Trump reimbursed his personal attorney for paying adult-film star Stormy Daniels hush money.
George Conway tweeted the link, which points to rules on personal loans. "If any person, including a relative or friend of the candidate, gives or loans the candidate money 'for the purpose of influencing any election for federal office,' the funds are not considered personal funds of the candidate even if they are given to the candidate directly," the FEC rules read.
"Instead, the gift or loan is considered a contribution from the donor to the campaign, subject to the per-election limit and reportable by the campaign. This is true even if the candidate uses the funds for personal living expenses while campaigning."
