More than 20% of Trump re-election campaign spending going to legal fees

More than 20% of Trump re-election campaign spending going to legal fees

Specifically, the Trump campaign spent $3.9 million in the first three months of 2018, and more than $834,000 of that went to attorneys.

President Trump filed for reelection nearly immediately upon assuming office, and new filings reflect the aggressive approach: The president's campaign and two affiliated fundraising committees pulled in about $20 million in the first quarter, reports Politico.

The campaign also paid legal fees to the Trump Corp. - a company being run by Trump's two older sons - and law firms Belkin, Burden, Wenig & Goldman LLP; Schertler & Onorato LLP; Seyfarth Shaw LLP; and Van Hoy, Reutlinger, Adams & Dunn PLLC.

Michael Cohen, a longtime personal lawyer and confidante for President Donald Trump arrives at the United States Distri

President Donald Trump and former president Barack Obama have very different diet and exercise routines.

Trump's campaign is pouring money into lawyers amid the special counsel's intensifying investigation into possible Kremlin collusion with the campaign and obstruction of justice, and entanglements with adult-film actress Stormy Daniels and her fight to tell her story. According to the report, the Trump campaign paid $1.1 million in legal fees in the fourth quarter of 2017, and has spent $4 million since he took office previous year.

The Trump campaign paid another $13,500 to McDermott Will & Emery, a firm that represents Cohen in the ongoing Russian Federation investigations and a newly revealed criminal inquiry.

Trump also said then that he would set up a legal defense fund for members of his staff, but he was informed that could be a conflict of interest in case any personnel may be called to testify against him. This was reported by representatives of his campaign, reports "UNN" with reference to Reuters. Traditionally, incumbent presidents have waited until after their second year in office to begin their re-election campaign.

The consulting firm for Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale was the largest single recipient of campaign cash - totaling one-point-seven million dollars for digital and advertising services.

The $15.1 million figure includes more than $717,000 from the Republican National Committee; $595,000 from the RNC and Trump campaign's joint fundraising committee; and $9,000 from the National Republican Senate Committee.
