Campaign finance records show the Trump campaign and its committee at the Republican National Committee, spent $617 million from their $1.26bn coffers through the company, according to Insider…

Some of Mr Trump’s advisors said that they did not know how the shell company worked, and did not know of Lara Trump and John Pence’s involvement.


“They like to say they don’t know, but that’s not true,” one person familiar with the company told Insider.

“What they wanted was excuses so they could blame other people. If they thought that, why did they keep using it?”
