CPAC bankrolled by Jan. 6 rally organizers and groups spreading 2020 election fraud claims - 2022-02-25
Former President Donald Trump's political operation continues to steer money to a firm run by Jan. 6 rally organizers, while other organizers of the rally before the deadly Capitol attack are sponsoring this year's annual Conservative Political Action Conference, widely known as CPAC.
Trump is slated to speak at the CPAC convening organized by the American Conservative Union on Saturday.
A newly-filed campaign finance disclosure shows Save America, Trump's leadership PAC, paid Event Strategies Inc. more than $837,000 in January this year.
Trump's political operation has paid more than $5.1 million to Event Strategies since the start of the 2020 election, the firm named in a permit for the rally that also employed two individuals involved in the demonstration. Some of those payments came in the weeks leading up to the Jan. 6, 2021 rally.
