The Republican National Committee, now led by former President Donald Trump and his team, is adding new lawyers to focus on election issues, particularly fraud. Trump remains strongly concerned about this issue.

The lawyers will take an aggressive approach to election integrity, according to Chris LaCivita, Trump’s co-campaign manager and newly appointed RNC Chief of Staff. LaCivita is bringing in experienced GOP lawyer Charlie Spies to be the chief counsel at the RNC.

Trump’s attorney Christina Bobb, previously a correspondent at the pro-Trump One America News Network, is joining as senior counsel for election integrity. She was active in promoting Trump’s claims about the 2020 election and wrote a book on the topic.

“I’m honored to join the RNC and thrilled the new leadership is focused on election integrity. I look forward to working to secure our elections and restore confidence in the process,” Bobb said in a statement to CNN.

The hiring of Spies and Bobb was reported by the Washington Post.

Bill McGinley, a former White House Cabinet secretary in Trump’s administration, will be outside counsel for election integrity, according to a source familiar with the matter.

The RNC recently laid off many staffers, affecting various departments. Trump had issues with the previous RNC Chair, Ronna McDaniel, blaming the organization for not having the right attorneys to challenge the 2020 election results.

Bobb was involved in two controversies related to Trump’s federal indictments. She signed an affidavit inaccurately claiming no classified files were left at Mar-a-Lago, and she played a role in the fake electors scheme after the 2020 election.

Trump has pleaded not guilty in both cases. Bobb, a former correspondent for OAN during the 2020 election, faced defamation lawsuits from Dominion and Smartmatic for promoting false claims about the election being rigged. OAN and Bobb denied wrongdoing in these civil cases.
