RNC Paying Trump Legal Fees in Russia Investigation
Put it on his bill. The Republican National Committee has confirmed it’s paying President Trump’s legal bills while he’s being investigated over potential election collusion with Russia. Trump’s attorneys have received $230,000 so far from a fund set aside to bankroll recounts and other legal matters. Through a campaign finance loophole, the fund allows donors to give triple the normal legal amount. It’s not clear if the famously wealthy president is paying any of his own legal expenses, but his campaign is due to make a financial disclosure Oct. 15.
