BIG LIES

Word on the street is the president’s using money designated for his re-election campaign and the Republican National Committee to pay for his Russia probe lawyer fees—at least that’s what two anonymous sources “familiar” with the situation tell Reuters. And according to CNN, the RNC paid over $230,000 to cover some of those fees.

RNC spokesperson Cassie Smedile confirmed to Reuters that Trump’s lead lawyer, John Dowd, received $100,000 from the RNC,” Reuters reports. “The RNC also paid $131,250 to the Constitutional Litigation and Advocacy Group, the law firm where Jay Sekulow, another of Trump’s lawyers, is a partner.”

But when asked how the president’s bills were being paid, Dowd reportedly replied: “That’s none of your business.”
