Liberal Trump Refusing to Pay Legal Fees for His Russian Scandal, Begging Others to Bail Him Out

The following is an excellent article written by Paula Kennedy on the Liberal website on July 30, 2017 titled “Trump Refusing to Pay Legal Fees for His Russian Scandal, Begging Others to Bail Him Out” and I quote:

“Trump Refusing to Pay Legal Fees for His Russian Scandal, Begging Others to Bail Him Out”

President Donald Trump has been surrounded by countless legal controversies ever since he took office earlier this year – and now it turns out he can’t afford the legal bills.

Trump is reportedly begging the Republican National Committee to fund a legal team to defend him against the numerous corruption allegations facing the president. Considering how many legal problems Trump has stocked up during his political career, the costs for defending him are certain to be in the millions.

What an utter embarrassment – Trump has billed himself as a billionaire and an excellent businessman, but now he can’t even come up with the money to cover his own legal defense.

Trump’s financial and legal trouble is going to end up backfiring on the Republican Party in a huge way.

If the Republican National Committee does agree to pay for Trump’s legal defense, it will deplete a huge sum of money from their legal fund.

However, that money is supposed to be used for the party’s own legal fights, like when there are recounts or contested results. If Trump eats up a chunk of that money, they won’t have as much to go around next time they need it.

Perfect – the Republicans are really shooting themselves in the foot on this one!!

The Washington Post reports:

Some in Trump’s orbit are pushing the Republican National Committee to bear the costs, said three people with knowledge of the situation, including one who euphemistically described the debate as a “robust discussion.”

Although the RNC does have a legal defense fund, it well predates the Russia investigations and is intended to be used for legal challenges facing the Republican Party, such as a potential election recount.

The RNC has not made a decision, in part because the committee is still researching whether the money could legally be used to help pay legal costs related to Russia. But many within the organization are resisting the effort, thinking it would be more appropriate to create a separate legal defense fund for the case.

As you can definitely guess, the RNC and the Trump administration have refused to answer journalists’ questions about their latest public controversy.

Trump is making himself look guilty as hell – time to remove him from office.”

About tim074

I'm a retired dairy farmer that was a member of the National Farmer's Organization (NFO). Before going farming, I spent 4 years in the United States Air Force where I saved up enough money to get my down payment to go farming. I also enjoy writing and reading biographies and I write about myself as well as articles and excerpts I find interesting. I'm specifically interested in finances, particularly in the banking industry because if it wasn't for help from my local Community Bank, I never could have started farming which I was successful at. So, I'm real interested in the Small Business Administration and I know they are the ones creating jobs. I have been a member of Common Cause and am now a member of Public Citizen as well as AARP. I have, in the past, written over 150 articles on the Obama Blog ( and I'd like to tie these two sites together. I'm also on Twitter, MySpace and Facebook and find these outlets terrifically interesting particularly what many of these people did concerning the uprising in the Arab world. I believe this is a smaller world than we think it is and my goal is to try to bring people together to live in peace because management needs labor like labor needs management. Up to now, that hasn't been so easy to find.
