Donald Trump's Re-Election Campaign Spent Over $ 800000 On Legal Fees In 2018

Donald Trump's Re-Election Campaign Spent Over $ 800000 On Legal Fees In 2018

In the last quarter of 2017, Trump's campaign committee spent $1.1 million in legal fees.

But more than 20% of the almost $3.9 million Trump spent this year went to pay legal bills, according to the reports his campaign filed Sunday with the Federal Election Commission.

The biggest share of legal payments in the first quarter of this year -- about $348,000 - went to Jones Day, a law firm representing the campaign in the investigations by Special Counsel Robert Mueller and several congressional committees into Russian interference in the 2016 election. His campaign spent over $US3 million ($3.8 million) in 2017 in legal fees.

The two legal firms involved in the fight with Daniels - Harding LLP and Larocca, Hornik, Rosen, Greenberg & Blaha - were paid a combined total of $280,000.

About $840,000 in payments for "legal consulting" were made to eight firms and the Trump Corporation.

US President Donald Trump's re-election campaign has raised $US10 million ($12 million) in the first quarter of the 2018, leaving his re-election operation with $US28 million ($35 million) in cash.

Federal prosecutors on Friday disclosed that Cohen has been the subject of a months-long criminal probe overseen by the U.S. Attorney's Office in Manhattan.

The firm has represented the campaign and Trump in the past, but it also has worked for Essential Consultants, Cohen's limited liability company fighting with Daniels over her effort to break free of the confidentiality agreement.

Trump has opted - unlike presidents before him - to begin actively fundraising in the early part of his first term. In first quarter of 2018, 61 percent of the direct contributions to his campaign committee came from donations of $200 or less.

The campaign also spent about $125,000 at Trump businesses, including Trump International Hotel, Trump restaurants, and Trump Tower. In addition to legal fees, he has also used that money to keep a small campaign staff, to fund campaign rallies and to pay for digital advertising focused on his supporters. McEntee was sacked from the White House amid a Department of Homeland Security investigation into possible financial crimes, a source told CNN after he was dismissed. McEntee was recently forced out of the White House after security issues related to gambling and was then quickly hired by the campaign.
