How Trump Screwed His Own Super PACs

Some pro-Donald Trump political groups say the president’s early declaration of his re-election candidacy is forcing them to be transparent about their activities—and weighing them down with paperwork and compliance costs.

A lawyer for two pro-Trump groups, Great America PAC and the Committee to Defend the President, told The Daily Beast that Trump’s early official entry into the 2020 race has forced the two groups to reassess and redouble their disclosures to the Federal Election Commission.

“President Trump is now a clearly identified federal candidate, and spending any funds to make public communications that could be deemed as being in support of him requires filing” a notice of an independent expenditure with the FEC, said Dan Backer, a Republican attorney who represents both groups.

Other campaign finance experts say the groups would likely have to report some of that activity anyway, but Backer’s comments show how President Trump’s immediate declaration of his re-election candidacy is shaking up past campaign finance practices—and could even be inadvertently adding a measure of transparency to the process.

Trump officially declared for re-election just hours after he was inaugurated on Jan. 20, allowing his campaign to raise and spend money for the duration of his first term. His campaign committee has already been raising money for his re-election with occasionally dubious fundraising tactics.

    Most people assume a president is going to run for reelection. Most aren’t eager to publicly announce their selection too soon since it triggers a variety of reporting requirements. Oops.

      Mr. Flatt, thank you for your service. We have to listen to men such as you, who over your lifetime have seen regimes rise and fall. And have seen many of the left’s social experiments fail. Your questions are germain. But you’ll never hear an answer from the democrats and most of the republicans. In answer to Charlie Seattle’s cryptic “why?”. Power. Power over everything. What car you drive, what food you eat, what words you utter, whom you call God. Quite simply…power. I know you asked the question without the expectation of an answer. But you got one anyway. Speak while you still can.
