(PatrioticPost.com)- According to a member of the January 6th Committee, Kimberly Guilfoyle, Donald Trump Jr.’s fiancée and a former adviser to his father’s reelection campaign, received $60,000 for her two-minute speech at the Stop the Steal rally that followed the attack on the Capitol.
In a CNN interview, Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-CA) claimed that Guilfoyle “was paid” $60,000 for a two and a half-minute introduction at the event.
Lofgren told Jake Tapper, “I’m not saying it’s a crime, but it’s a grift.”
Tapper was pontificating on a section of the Monday, January 6th Committee hearing when Lofgren presented evidence that the Trump campaign had amassed $250 million from supporters in the wake of the election, purportedly to seek legal action for election fraud.
However, according to the committee, a large portion of the funds went to the Save America PAC, including $5 million that was given to Event Strategies Inc., which assisted in organizing the event on January 6 at the Ellipse. Other funds went to the America First Policy Institute, the nonprofit foundation of Trump Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, and the Trump Hotel Collection.
Gavin Newsom’s ex-wife Guilfoyle, a former Fox News pundit, spoke with the committee in April.
In answer to a query about whether members of the Trump family personally benefited from the post-election fundraising blitz, Lofgren weighed in. Donors were bombarded with emails requesting contributions to an “election defense fund,” as was demonstrated at the hearing.
Lofgren proclaimed that the former president deceived people. They were tricked into thinking the election had been rigged and they needed to report to the Capitol when the president requested them. They lacked wealth. The president deceived them.
If receiving such gifts for personal gain would be illegal, Lofgren wouldn’t answer. She said she is part of a legislative committee. That decision belongs to someone else.
According to Lofgren, the funds were not utilized for what Trump said to his donors.
It served a very different purpose.
“That, in my opinion, was dishonest and improper,” huffed Lofgren.
Like OJ searching doggedly for the “real killer,” Lofgren doesn’t seem to put her energies toward any left-wing improprieties.
