Trump's Campaign Spent Another One Million Dollars In Legal Fees

President Donald Trump makes a statement on the mass shooting in Las Vegas from the Diplomatic Room at the White House in Washington U.S

Under federal law, the president's campaign can pay for his legal fees if the costs relate directly to the investigation.

The $1.1 million the campaign spent on lawyers during the third quarter of the year is almost double what the president's fundraising committee spent on legal fees during the previous three-month period, campaign reports filed Sunday show.

Ms. Dermansky declined to comment on the case, referring questions to her lawyer, who did not respond to requests for comment. They include more than $237,900 to Alan Futerfas, the NY lawyer representing Donald Trump Jr., the president's eldest son, in the Russian Federation probes.

Mr. Futerfas did not respond to a request for comment, nor did representatives from the Trump campaign and Jones Day. That came before news surfaced about the 2016 meeting, which also involved Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner and then-campaign manager Paul Manafort.

The younger Trump testified for five hours before a closed meeting of the Senate Judiciary Committee in early September.

The Republican National Committee disclosed last month payments to two attorneys, John Dowd and Jay Sekulow, who are representing the president.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller and multiple congressional committees have active probes into Russian interference. The $1 million in legal fees represents a sizable chunk of the total $4 million in spending the campaign reported.

The legal account is supposed to pay for election recounts and other election-related legal proceedings for Republican candidates, but a big chunk of it is now likely going to be spent on legal fees associated with the Russian Federation investigation - an unusual move for the committee. It's unusual for a sitting president to raise money for re-election as aggressively as Trump has during the first year in office.

Meanwhile, the legal spending from the RNC is coming from major donors who have contributed to a separate account that was set up through a spending bill agreement between Senate Democrats and Republicans in 2014. It isn't yet clear whether those donations went to the legal fund or other party accounts. Mr. Trump has headlined big-ticket fund-raisers with major donors, while the campaign also has raised nearly $7 million from small donors, partly through an email program with solicitations pegged to news events like Mr. Trump's feud with National Football League players over their protests during the national anthem. He also saw a surge of big-money support, fueled by donors writing larger checks to join the president at a closed-door event September 26 at Le Cirque restaurant in NY. Sunday's campaign report shows that donors' money is spent at Trump properties, too. At the committee fundraiser in NY headlined by Trump, a couple could get access to a private round table with the president for $250,000. He raised about $1.9 million in unitemized contributions during the previous quarter.

Former President Obama had been in office more than two years before he headlined his first re-election fundraiser. That brings the president's total campaign fundraising so far this year to $36 million.
