It’s been over a year since the 2020 election, but one thing has stayed the same: Ronna McDaniel and the Republican National Committee are continuing to burn through their donors’ money to pay Donald Trump’s personal legal fees, even as he sits on hundreds of millions of dollars of personal and campaign funds. Oh, and he’s a defeated former president who cost their party the House, Senate, and White House.
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: If we were the RNC’s donors, we would certainly be asking questions.
ABC News: “A year after election, RNC still spending hundreds of thousands to cover Trump’s legal bills”
- “More than a year after the 2020 presidential election, the GOP is still covering numerous legal bills for the benefit of former President Donald Trump — and the price tag is ruffling the feathers of some longtime GOP donors who are now critical of Trump.”
- “In October and November alone, the Republican National Committee spent nearly $720,000 of its donor money on paying law firms representing Trump in various legal challenges, including criminal investigations into his businesses in New York, according to campaign finance records.”
- “But experts say the GOP’s recent payments of Trump’s attorney fees after he left the White House, for investigations that are not relevant to the next presidential campaign, is a very unusual move that’s indicative of the ongoing influence that the former president has over the party.”
