Trump diverted large amounts of campaign cash to fund used to cover legal fees, report finds
Trump’s campaign has pushed much of the money raised for his 2024 presidential bid by a political action committee to cover his legal fees, as the former president faces multiple accusations and investigation in multiple jurisdictions in at least three states.
Of every dollar raised for his online campaign since its launch in November, 99 cents have gone to the campaign while one cent has gone to the PAC Save America.
But he appears to have adjusted that split, sending 90 percent of his campaign donations with the other 10 percent to Save America — a move that may have boosted his PAC by at least $1.5 million, according to The New York Times.
Save America spent $1.9 million in identified legal costs in the first half of 2022, according to The Times. That spending rose to $14.6 million in the second half of last year, according to records reviewed by the newspaper.
