The Republican National Committee has been paying the private security firm owned by President Trump's former bodyguard and longtime confidant, Keith Schiller, $15,000 a month, CNBC first reported and Axios has confirmed.

The details: Schiller left the White House last year after working with Trump for almost 20 years. An RNC official told Axios the firm has been retained to provide security consultation for the RNC 2020 convention site selection process. If that rate of payment keeps up, Schiller will have made more than $500,000 by the time of the convention.
