Taxpayers pay legal bill to protect Trump business profits

This has to be torches and pitchforks time again. How does the Republican President get away with this shit?

It must be that the rest of the Republicans, who control both houses are just as complicit.

Taxpayers are footing the legal bill for at least 10 Justice Department lawyers and paralegals to work on lawsuits related to President Trump's private businesses.

Neither the White House nor the Justice Department will say how much it is costing taxpayers, but federal payroll records show the salaries of the government lawyers assigned to the cases range from about $133,000 to $185,000.

The government legal team is defending Trump in four lawsuits stemming from his unusual decision not to divest himself from hundreds of his companies that are entangled with customers that include foreign governments and officials.

In the cases, Justice Department attorneys are not fulfilling their traditional role of defending policy actions Trump took as president. Instead, the taxpayer-funded lawyers are making the case that the president's private companies should be allowed to keep taking profits from foreign governments and officials while he's in office.

Thanks from Camelot
