CLEVELAND — Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s campaign Wednesday identified an in-house staff writer as the person responsible for plagiarism in Melania Trump’s convention speech.
The Trump campaign blamed Meredith McIver, who was described an in-house staff writer from the Trump organization, for including portions of a speech by first lady Michelle Obama in Mrs. Trump’s speech.
The allegation of plagiarism marred an otherwise upbeat performance by Mrs. Trump and cast a pall over the opening day of the convention.
The campaign released a statement from Ms. McIver in which she said she did it by accident and offered her resignation. Mr. Trump did not accept her resignation.
