Kimberly Guilfoyle, a former member of the Donald Trump presidential campaign, was paid a $60,000 speaking fee for introducing Donald Trump Jr., her fiancé, at the “Stop the Steal” rally on the Ellipse that acted as a precursor to the US Capitol riot, a member of the House select committee that’s investigating January 6 told CNN on Monday.
Turning Point Action, a conservative pro-Trump organization, paid Guilfoyle for the speech, which lasted less than three minutes on January 6, 2021, according to multiple people familiar with the payment. Turning Point Action is an affiliate of Turning Point USA, the youth organization started by Charlie Kirk, who is a close friend of Trump Jr.
