Trump’s Re-Election Campaign Doubles Its Spending on Legal Fees

NYT

The majority of the legal payments reflected in the second-quarter reports — $545,000 — went to the law firm Jones Day. It has represented the campaign in election law matters and ongoing lawsuits, and is also advising it on legal issues related to the Russia investigations.Continue reading the main storyThe campaign has been sending letters to former employees instructing them to retain documents that could be relevant to the ongoing investigations, according to several people who received them. Some of the letters, signed by the campaign’s executive director, Michael Glassner, alert the former employees that lawyers from Jones Day might contact them.Representatives from Jones Day, the Trump campaign and the White House did not respond to questions about the firm’s role in helping the campaign navigate the Russia investigations, which have expanded to include several former campaign officials, as well as the campaign’s digital operation.Federal election law permits campaign committees to pay legal fees incurred as a result of activity related to the campaign.The Trump campaign also paid nearly $90,000 to the Trump corporation for legal consulting and $120,000 in rent for the campaign’s offices at Trump Tower in Manhattan.In addition to the re-election campaign, two joint fund-raising vehicles established with Republican Party committees also filed reports to the commission. The committees ramped up their big-donor fund-raising during the second quarter of the year, raising $13.2 million — much of which came from big donors — according to the reports.The reports make it clear that although Election Day 2020 is nearly three and a half years away, Mr. Trump’s re-election campaign operation is already in high gear, and that it is working to engage the Republican Party’s deepest pockets in a way that his unconventional 2016 campaign did not.Newsletter Sign UpContinue reading the main storyThank you for subscribing.An error has occurred.
