All the (Former) Presidentís Lawyers Donald Trumpís PACs have spent millions of dollars on a small army of lawyers to defend him in four separate federal and state criminal cases.
Former President Donald J. Trump has become entangled in a web of federal and state prosecution, and now faces 91 criminal charges in four separate state and federal cases.
Political action committees supporting him have spent more than $27 million on legal costs in the first six months of 2023, and he has recruited a small army of lawyers to defend him. Here are a dozen of the prominent figures and their bills paid by Mr. Trumpís Save America PAC. (See link)
The NY Times, which I quoted above, is apparently only counting the heads of the law firms, not all the underling lawyers who have accompanied Trump into court, appeared on camera and the lawyers behind the scenes doing research and investigations. Not mentioned in the article is Alina Habba, for example.
I don't care how anybody slices it, spending $27 million on Trump's legal fees is $27 million in campaign contributions that won't be spent on campaign ads or campaign costs.
