Former top Rand Paul adviser, Jesse Benton, who goes on trial in April for his alleged involvement in under-the-table payments to an Iowa politician to bring his support over to Ron Paul's presidential bid in 2012, has been named the chief strategist for the pro-Trump "Great America PAC."
Before the Benton announcement,Trump had taken steps to distance himself from the group. After it launched, a Trump attorney got in touch with the representatives for the super PAC and told them it wasn’t allowed to use the candidate’s last name in its title. Shortly after, TrumPAC changed its name to Great America PAC.
No doubt Trump will now distance himself even more from the PAC and the press will have renewed interest in the upcoming trial of a "strategist for a Trump Super PAC" on trial.
Trump has not yet commented on his new under-indictment supporter who wants to help him get to the White House.
