McConnell Took 2020 Donations From Trump’s Lawyers

The Louisville Courier-Journal reports:

Several members of President Donald Trump’s impeachment defense team recently gave money to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s 2020 reelection campaign, a Courier Journal analysis of campaign finance data found. Ken Starr, who famously prosecuted former President Bill Clinton in his impeachment trial before joining Trump’s team, gave the maximum individual contribution allowed — $2,800 — to the McConnell Senate Committee on July 31, 2019.

This wasn’t Starr’s first donation to McConnell, however. The lawyer and former Baylor University president is a longtime Republican who has given to every McConnell reelection campaign since 2002. Another member of the president’s impeachment defense team, Robert Ray, gave a total of $5,600 to the McConnell Senate Committee through two separate donations — one for the primary election, one for the general — on Sept. 30, 2019.

McConnell’s 2020 opponent is Amy McGrath.
