$27 million routed improperly to the RNC in 2016, FEC general counsel found

Without those caps, the FEC general counsel found, donors used the joint fundraising committee, called Trump Victory, to route excessive contributions to the RNC through state party committees. According to the complaint that prompted the general counsel’s review, which was filed by the left-leaning American Democracy Legal Fund, more than 100 transactions between Sept. 30, 2016, and Dec. 26, 2016, betrayed a pattern of near-simultaneous transfers into state party committees and then from those committees to the national party.
