Last night on the Lead, Jake Tapper interviewed RNC Chair Ronna McDaniel as to whether the RNC has the ‘Moral High Ground’ to ‘attack’ Former FBI Director James Comey’s integrity. From The Hill,
“Whatever issues there are with James Comey, what is the deal with [Elliott] Broidy and [Micheal] Cohen and [Steve] Wynn, and how does that give you any moral ground to question anyone’s integrity?” Tapper asked.
Ronna McDaniel Answer?
Comey “discredited himself” with “his own testimony before Congress.”
Let’s take a small look at the men Jake Tapper asked about.
“Republican National Committee announced members of the party’s finance leadership team. It was led by Steve Wynn, who was forced to resign from his RNC post earlier this year following sexual misconduct allegations. (The RNC refused to return his money.)”
Michael Cohen, the RNC’s national deputy finance chair,
Elliott Broidy, the Republican National Committee’s deputy finance chair,
“President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer negotiated a deal in late 2017 to pay $1.6 million to a former Playboy model who said she was impregnated by a top Republican fundraiser, according to people familiar with the matter.
Michael Cohen, whose office, home and hotel room were raided by federal agents this week, arranged the payments to the woman on behalf of Elliott Broidy…. The deal, which hasn’t previously been reported, prohibits the Los Angeles woman from disclosing her alleged relationship with Mr. Broidy in exchange for $1.6 million to be paid to her over two years in quarterly installments, these people said. The first payment was due Dec. 1, according to one of the people.”
