11 private security firms guarding Donald Trump

It is unprecedented, said one high-level official with knowledge of the Secret Service machinations. The apparatus surrounding Mr. Trump is extensive to the point of looking dysfunctional.

And the dysfunction is glaring. The Trump campaign first told me that all questions regarding security should be directed to the Secret Service. But the Secret Service told me that Trumps private security is considered campaign staff, and so any questions about them would have to be answered by the campaign. The campaign, informed of this, replied, no comment. Further requests for comment were met with a slightly wordier but no more helpful reply: We have no comment on security personnel and procedures.

The campaign might not want to talk about it, but Trump has contracted 11 security firms, security-guard services, and dozens of individuals as hes campaigned around the country. And a handful of the private companies are run by retired, high-ranking law-enforcement personnel. Its unclear if any of them are armed in their capacity on the Trump campaign.

And on the campaign payroll is KS Global Group LLC, compensated $10,000 for security services. The company was incorporated in Delaware in October 2015. There is little other publicly available information about it.

But Keith Schiller, a retired NYPD detective, has long handled personal security for the candidate. As Politicos Ken Vogel noted in April, Schillers payments are sometimes made by Trump as in-kind donations to the campaign. And since June 2015, those payments total $149,179. The Trump campaign did not respond when asked specifically if KS Global Group LLC is Schillers company.

Still, Schillers payments from the Trump campaign pose another potential complication. Federal election law prohibits the conversion of campaign funds to personal usemeaning Trump couldnt all of a sudden pay his longtime hairdresser with campaign cash just because his hair is present on the campaign trail.

A security expense that Mr. Trump was incurring before running for president is an expense that did/would exist irrespective of his campaign for president and, therefore, would constitute an illegal personal use of campaign funds, said Paul Ryan of the Campaign Legal Center.

It’s interesting in the article a former Secret Service agent opined, “… it’s unlikely Trump’s private security is actually doing anything to protect the candidate now, despite their astronomical fees.”

Hmmm. So, like the Pam Bondi alleged bribe, crooked Teflon Donald may be using campaign funds for private gain? This time to keep his cronies well-greased? Wow, this guy could shoot somebody in pubic and avoid prosecution, I must say, believe me.
