Trump team setting up legal defense fund for Russia probe - report

Trump team setting up legal defense fund for Russia probe - report | 02 Feb 2018 | President Trump's campaign has reportedly hired a law firm to set up a legal defense fund for costs incurred by staffers ensnared by the special counsel investigation or other legal fees. A document from the Wiley Rein LLP law firm posted on the Office of Government Ethics (OGE) website describes the "Patriot Legal Expense Fund," which would provide financial support to any individual who "was an employee, consultant, fundraiser or volunteer" of Trump's 2016 campaign. It's unclear how much money is currently in the fund or who runs it, but the Trump campaign made a payment of $10,000 to the Wiley Rein firm last year for "legal consulting," according to ABC News.
