Former President Donald Trump on Saturday blamed his political enemies for legal fees he’s incurred over the course of three recent indictments.
Trump posted on his social media site Truth Social slamming the “Lunatic Left” for his “vast” legal fees, less than two weeks after FEC filings revealed that his operation is bleeding campaign funds to pay bills related to his mounting legal challenges.
Trump’s Save America PAC shrank from over $100 million at the beginning of last year to $3.6 million after bankrolling legal fees for the former president and his allies, according to filings first reported in The Washington Post. Filings also show that Save America and five other Trump committees have spent a total of over $40 million in legal fees since the start of 2021.
“The Lunatic Left, working closely with Crooked Joe Biden and his corrupt DOJ, is not only focusing on Election Interference, but on getting the Trump Campaign to spend vast amounts of money on legal fees, thereby having less to spend on ads showing that Crooked Joe is the WORST PRESIDENT IN U.S. HISTORY!” Trump wrote Saturday on the way to the Iowa State Fair.
Trump is currently facing federal indictments in both Florida and Washington, D.C. — the former for the mishandling of highly classified documents at his Mar-a-Lago residence and the latter in relation to his efforts to overturn the 2020 election. The former president is also facing state charges in New York in connection to hush money payments to porn star Stormy Daniels and is under investigation for alleged election interference in Georgia.
Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis is expected to begin presenting the election interference case before a grand jury as early as next week.
