Trump has covered the legal bills of aides, advisers and employees during the House select committee’s probe into January 6, 2021, and federal investigations, including his two co-defendants in the classified documents case, Walt Nauta and Carlos De Oliveira, both of whom work for the former president.
But there is no sign yet that Trump intends to do so for any of his co-defendants in the Georgia case, which alleges that he and others engaged in a criminal conspiracy to subvert the state’s 2020 election results. In fact, Trump has publicly distanced himself from them, telling Newsmax he doesn’t know “a lot of these people.”
Trump’s political action committee, Save America, has spent more than $40 million on legal fees for him and many of his associates since the start of 2021, including more than $21 million during the first six months of this year, according to federal campaign finance records.
Read the full article. Jenna Ellis, Jeffrey Clark, John Eastman and others have turned to the far-right Christian crowdfunding site GiveSendGo. At this writing, Ellis has raised $189,000 and Eastman has pulled in over half a million. Jeffrey Clark trails with a relatively paltry $57,000. A fan of the Kraken has so far raised just $7000 on her behalf.
