CNN published this video item, entitled “Surprise! Trump’s ‘election fraud’ fundraising is not what it seems” – below is their description.

Former President Donald Trump talked a good game about fundraising to fight “election fraud,” but not all of the funds raised by his political PAC are being used for that purpose. In the latest episode of The Point, CNN’s Chris Cillizza explains where the money is going — and why.
