Trump has collected almost $30 million on his re-election

Trump has collected almost $30 million on his re-election

The Trump campaign paid another $13,500 to McDermott Will & Emery, a firm that represents Cohen in the ongoing Russian Federation investigations and a newly revealed criminal inquiry.

President Donald Trump's reelection campaign continued to spend a sizable chunk of its money on legal fees in the first months of 2018, the continuation of a pattern that emerged previous year.

Besides increasing money due to his effort, money for campaigns have also amassed using all the Republican National Committee, which utilizes that capital. His campaign spent over $3 million in 2017 in legal fees.

The latest figures bring the Trump campaign's total spending on legal fees to almost $4 million since the president took office, records show.

Trump has opted - unlike presidents before him - to begin fundraising in the early part of the term. Stormy Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, is suing to have the nondisclosure agreement invalidated. That was a sharp drop from the previous quarter, when the campaign paid the firm almost $215,000.




Prosecutors said in a Friday court hearing that Cohen has been the target of a months-long federal investigation in NY, separate from Special Counsel Robert Mueller's probe of Russian interference in the US elections.

The campaign has raised over $10.1 million so far this year. Traditionally, incumbent presidents have waited until after their second year in office to begin their re-election campaign.

Responding to the Ricketts campaign filing, Democratic gubernatorial candidate Bob Krist said he has been "focused on performing my elected duties in the Nebraska Legislature" and has been delayed in mounting a concerted fundraising campaign.

NAIJ.com previously reported that barely after completing one year in the White House, President Trump started preparing for 2020 re-election, selecting Brad Parscale as the campaign manager. Parscale was the digital director of Trump's 2016 campaign.

Trump's former personal aide John McEntee received $22,000 in payments from the campaign starting on March 23, the FEC filing shows.
