In other news, Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif says Trump's speech at the UN today was "shameless and ignorant." Actually, it was worse than that.
Meanwhile, none of the funds leftover from Trump's inauguration bonanza have been donated to charity as promised.
Finally, Trump is reportedly using campaign and RNC funds to pay his legal bills in the Russian interference investigation. That would be a first.
NEW YORK (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump is using money donated to his reelection campaign and the Republican National Committee to pay for his lawyers in the probe of alleged Russian interference in the U.S. election, according to two people familiar with the matter.
The U.S. Federal Election Commission allows the use of private campaign funds to pay legal bills arising from being a candidate or elected official.
While previous presidential campaigns have used these funds to pay for routine legal matters such as ballot access disputes and compliance requirements, Trump would be the first U.S. president in the modern campaign finance era to use such funds to cover the costs of responding to a criminal probe, said election law experts.
Obviously this means anyone who donates to his campaign or the RNC, even if they're small donors, are covering Trump's legal bills for possibly conspiring with the Russia government.
It's not clear why a supposed billionaire would need to use small donor money to pay his legal bills. I'm sure he doesn't need to, but he's a rich cheapass so he'll do it anyway.
