According to reports, Trump adviser and son-in-law Jared Kushner set up a shell company to divert campaign cash to pay the Trump family.
Kushner’s shell company had sister-in-law Lara Trump, Vice President Mike Pence’s nephew John Pence and Trump campaign CFO Sean Dollman to sit on the board. Financial documents show the company, set up as American Made Media Consultants Corporation and American Made Media Consultants LLC, spent $617 million of the Trump campaign’s $1.26 billion. Top-level Trump campaign staff told reporters they were unaware of how the shell company operated. The nonpartisan Campaign Legal Center filed a civil complaint in July with the Federal Election Commission accusing the Trump campaign of “laundering” funds through AMMC.
