An RNC member is trying to block the party from paying Trump's legal fees

At least one member of the Republican National Committee is trying to slow down Donald Trump's corporate takeover by keeping the group neutral until Trump is officially the presidential nominee and refrains from taking up his legal bills.

Henry Barber, a national committee member from Mississippi, has sent two draft resolutions for consideration at the RNC's upcoming March meeting in Houston. Barber said support for the resolutions is growing among RNC members, but he still doesn't have the supporters he needs, and any resolution would ultimately be nonbinding.

The move comes after Trump publicly called last week to replace the current chairs of the RNC and appoint one of his senior campaign advisers and his daughter-in-law Laura Trump to key roles. Laura Trump suggested earlier in the week that GOP voters would support a group paying her father-in-law's legal bills as he faces criminal and civil charges.

Speaking at the Principles First Summit, a gathering of anti-Trump and pro-democracy conservatives in Washington, Ms Hill was asked about how Mr Trump would have reacted to the killing of Russian dissident Alexei Navalny.

The twice-impeached, disgraced former president, whose performance during a 2018 Helsinki press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin was so poor that he considered pulling the fire alarm to end it, may have actually reacted negatively to Navalny's death. I thought it made him worse.

“It's really about how he reflects,” he said.
