Notorious "dark money" conduit Wellspring Committee gave $14.8 million to the primary spender on Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation and paid $919,900 to the mysterious LLC that made a $1 million donation to President Donald Trump's inaugural committee, according to a new tax return obtained Nov. 27 by the Center for Responsive Politics.

Wellspring has acted as a conduit for large contributions from secretive donors since it was set up, effectively laundering multi-million dollar donations with no substantive disclosure or accountability.

Despite operating behind the scenes with a name unknown to most of the American public, Wellspring is at the crux of Ann and Neil Corkery's network of politically active dark money groups, funneling millions from anonymous financiers to political causes they don't want their names attached to — and doing ostensibly little else.
