    The complaint, filed by the Democratic Coalition Against Trump super PAC, says McIver's involvement in the speechwriting is a violation of campaign finance law because she has received no compensation from the campaign but is an employee of the Trump Organization. The campaign is expected to list all in-kind contributions of goods and services in campaign finance reports.

    It was not immediately clear if the Trump Organization or campaign responded.
