Donald Trump’s campaign has been secretly paying two of his sons’ significant others, including a former Fox commentator, according to The New York Times and HuffPost reporting.

One of those, Kimberly Guilfoyle, is dating Donald Trump Jr., was previously with Fox’s conservative cable channel.

Guilfoyle had been hitting the campaign trail with Trump Jr. and left the network in 2018.

According to HuffPost, Guilfoyle and Eric Trump’s wife wife, Lara, are both being paid $15,000 per month, which comes out to $180,000 a year, according to sources.

Further, both of these amounts are reportedly being paid through a company owned by Bradley Parscale to avoid FEC reporting requirements.

When contacted by the HuffPost, Parscale would only say “I can pay them however I want to pay them.”

Any payments to vendors, employees or other expenses must be disclosed and made public, according to FEC rules.

However, Trump’s campaign appears to be skirting these by transferring money to companies owned by Parscale, which is reported on the required disclosures, but once it’s there, there’s no way to know, from public records, what happens to it.

Combined, Giles-Parscale and Parscale Strategy LLC have been paid $38.9 million by Trump’s campaign, the RNC, a super PAC and fundraising committees between January 2017 and February 2020.
