Pam Bondi will have prime-time speech at Donald Trump's GOP convention

14

July

Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi, whose ties to Donald Trump have been a source of controversy, will have a prime-time speaking appearance at next week's Republican National Convention.

Bondi is scheduled to give a five-minute address at 8:30 p.m. Wednesday on the subject of law enforcement.

Gov. Rick Scott is also expected to speak.

The exposure on all three major cable networks offers an opening for Bondi's critics to launch a new wave of attacks over her connections to Trump.

As the state's chief legal officer, Bondi is the target of ethics complaints over her solicitation of a $25,000 campaign contribution from Trump in 2013. At that time, her office said, two complaints were on file against Trump University, a for-profit real estate school that's the subject of hundreds of complaints and nationwide class action lawsuits in California and New York.

Bondi decided not to open an investigation of Trump University and urged complaints be filed with New York, which had already launched a probe of the school.
