Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

When President Donald Trump's longtime bodyguard Keith Schiller decided to leave his White House job last fall, many in the West Wing wondered how the president would manage without his personal security chief-turned-confidant, who had been working for Trump nearly 20 years. As it turns out, Schiller didn't go very far. Within weeks of leaving his job as director of Oval Office operations, Schiller's private security firm, KS Global Group, began collecting $15,000 a month for "security services" from the Republican National Committee. ... "These sorts of party accounts are notorious for being operated as slush funds -- lightly regulated and ripe for abuse," said Stephen Spaulding, former special counsel at the Federal Election Commission and now chief of strategy at the nonpartisan advocacy group Common Cause.

That's a great idea...outsource your security to the lowest bidder instead of paying a firm that has a guy who has decades of experience in the real world. $500k is not an outrageous price for the service being offered. Now, whether or not it is an official consulting relationship and not just a "Hey, I like you so I'm going to give you lots of money" is not something we can know.

Some people and firms pay higher for security. Do people even read what they write before releasing it?

Please, you are not fooling anyone with all that cheeto sucking. The service being offered is keeping Trump secrets after his background check at the Whitehouse caused him to leave the job.
