WMAL Interview- RONNA ROMNEY MCDANIEL 07.14.17
RONNA ROMNEY MCDANIEL -- the current chairwoman of the Republican National Committee, and former chairwoman of the Michigan Republican Party. Topic: Healthcare repeal fight and news of the day • Senate Republicans release new Obamacare repeal bill • Senate Republicans one vote away from Obamacare repeal failure • Trump: 'Republican Senators must come through' on health care bill. Trump, who is in France attending Bastille Day celebrations with French President Emmanuel Macron, wrote on Twitter Friday morning. “So impt Rep Senators, under leadership of @SenateMajLdr McConnell get healthcare plan approved. After 7yrs of O'Care disaster, must happen!” • Washington Post: "Some in Trump’s orbit are pushing the Republican National Committee to bear the [legal] costs" • Another question is who will pay the legal fees for the president and administration officials involved in the Russia inquiries. Some in Trump’s orbit are pushing the Republican National Committee to bear the costs, said three people with knowledge of the situation, including one who euphemistically described the debate as a “robust discussion.” • Although the RNC does have a legal defense fund, it well predates the Russia investigations and is intended to be used for legal challenges facing the Republican Party, such as a potential election recount.
