"Democrats Probe Trump’s Request For Campaign Cash From Big Oil"

"House Democrats are probing President Trump’s request for $1 billion in campaign cash from major oil companies.

Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-Md.) penned a letter to CEOs of eight energy companies and an oil  lobbying group that reportedly attended a dinner at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort with the former president last month.

Outlets, including The Hill, reported that at the dinner, Trump asked the industry to raise $1 billion to support his presidential campaign.

The Washington Post, which shared the story first, reported that getting him the funds would be a “deal,” because of all the money the industry would save in avoided taxes and regulations under his presidency".
