Paul Ryan Didn’t Violate Campaign Finance Laws

Q: Did House Speaker Paul Ryan break campaign finance laws in a meeting with donor Sheldon Adelson?

A: No. He met with Adelson (which is legal), but there’s no evidence he solicited a $30 million donation for a Republican super PAC (which would be illegal).  

Congressional Leadership Fund

A super PAC focused on maintaining and expanding the Republican majority in the House of Representatives.
