FEC report shows how national party committees allegedly blow past contribution limits

Without those caps, the FEC general counsel found, donors used 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. A complaint by a Trump-aligned group in 2017 made similar claims about transfers in and out of state-level Democratic committees between Oct. 1, 2015, and Nov. 8, 2016.
