Trump Blames Democrats aka “Lunatic Left” for Mounting Legal Fees Amid Indictments

Former President Donald Trump took to his social media platform, Truth Social, to attribute his growing legal fees from recent indictments to his political adversaries. Trump’s comments come shortly after Federal Election Commission (FEC) filings disclosed that his campaign funds are being depleted to cover expenses linked to his legal battles.
Less than two weeks after these filings revealed the financial situation, Trump’s Save America PAC saw a significant decline in funds from over $100 million to $3.6 million in the span of a year. These funds were used to cover legal expenses for Trump and his allies. According to reports, a total of over $40 million has been spent on legal fees by Trump’s committees since the beginning of 2021.
In his post on Truth Social, Trump targeted what he referred to as the “Lunatic Left,” suggesting that in collaboration with President Joe Biden and the Department of Justice, they were purposefully forcing the Trump Campaign to expend substantial sums on legal fees. He implied that this strategy left less money available for campaign advertisements highlighting Biden’s alleged failures as president.
Trump’s message, posted as he was on his way to the Iowa State Fair, alleged that the focus of his adversaries extended beyond mere election interference and also aimed at financially burdening his campaign.
The former president is currently facing federal indictments in Florida and Washington, D.C., related to the handling of classified documents and his efforts to overturn the 2020 election, respectively. In addition, he is dealing with state charges in New York connected to hush money payments to Stormy Daniels, a porn star. Furthermore, he is under investigation for alleged election interference in Georgia, with Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis anticipated to present the case before a grand jury in the coming week.
