Ronna McDaniel: RNC Will Return Wynn Donations If Wrongdoing Is Found

Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel on Tuesday said donations given by Steve Wynn will be returned only if an investigation finds wrongdoing.

Though Wynn was immediately removed as RNC finance chair in the aftermath of a report detailing sexual misconduct against the casino mogul, McDaniel is taking a different tack from other Republicans who have already given away Wynn donations.

"The allegations in The Wall Street Journal were deeply troubling. They were so troubling that within 24 hours, Steve was no longer our finance chair. But Steve has denied these allegations," McDaniel said on Fox News' "America's Newsroom" show.

"Unlike Harvey Weinstein and Al Franken and others, Steve has denied them," McDaniel told Fox.

House Speaker Paul Ryan announced that contributions given by Wynn to his campaign will be donated to charity, and the Republican Governors Association returned $100,000 in donations and severed other financial ties to Wynn.

And on Monday, former White House press secretary Sean Spicer said the RNC should return the money, saying Republicans should be taking the "higher moral ground."

McDaniel, however, said Wynn should be afforded due process with his donations if not his job as finance chair.

"He should be allowed due process, and if he is found of any wrongdoing, we will absolutely return 100 percent of that money," McDaniel said of the hundreds of thousands Wynn has reportedly donated.

"But we're going to let due process take place."

McDaniel trolled the Democrats in October in the wake of the allegations against Weinstein to return all of his donations.
