George Conway tweeted the link, which points to rules on personal loans. 


"If any person, including a relative or friend of the candidate, gives or loans the candidate money 'for the purpose of influencing any election for federal office,' the funds are not considered personal funds of the candidate even if they are given to the candidate directly," the FEC rules read.

"Instead, the gift or loan is considered a contribution from the donor to the campaign, subject to the per-election limit and reportable by the campaign. This is true even if the candidate uses the funds for personal living expenses while campaigning."

His tweet comes after former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani (R), a recent addition to Trump's legal team, said Wednesday that Trump reimbursed his personal attorney Michael Cohen the $130,000 paid to Daniels ahead of the 2016 presidential election to stay quiet about their alleged affair.

Giuliani’s comment contradicted prior claims from Trump that he had no knowledge of the payment and did not know the source of the money.

Trump responded in a series of tweets Thursday morning, defending the payment and asserting it was a personal loan and not at all related to the campaign. 

Conway, unlike his wife, who formerly ran Trump's campaign and who remains a top media booster of the president, is a frequent critic of Trump on Twitter.

Conway has publicly maintained his support for Trump and his policies in public interviews and postings.
