President Donald Trump's 2020 reelection campaign has spent about $835,000 in legal fees so far this year, or about 22% of its total spending, according to the latest fundraising reports filed quarterly with the Federal Election Commission. The spending comes as Trump deals with the intensifying special counsel investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election, as well as an ongoing legal battle with adult film star Stormy Daniels, whose given name is Stephanie Clifford.

Seems low. Bet the real number is about 50%.

Given what's coming up the tracks, that 22% figure will look like a low-ball number.

At least he is paying (some of?) his legal bills. It's been reported that prior to his election, some attorneys, like some of his subcontractors, didn't get paid!

I'm curious. Did those people who donated money to his campaign realize it is going for legal fees instead of his presidential run? Do they even care?

Another 20% went for hush money for hookers and porn stars. 🤫
