Trump starts paying his own legal bills on Russia probe

So, did the RNC decide to quit backing a loser or is it a somewhat belated acquisition of ethics?

Quote:
Trump starts paying his own legal bills on Russia probe: attorneys

WASHINGTON - President Donald Trump has begun paying his own legal bills related to the Russia investigation and will no longer cover the costs using political donations to his reelection campaign or the Republican Party, his attorneys confirmed on Friday.

Trump defense lawyer John Dowd said that following payments by the Republican National Committee (RNC), the president began paying the bills and now wants to make the party "even."

The expenses cover personal lawyers representing Trump before special prosecutor Robert Mueller's probe of possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia in last year's election, and whether Trump may have obstructed justice by firing Federal Bureau of Investigation Director James Comey, among other actions.

...

Additionally, Trump's reelection campaign paid more than $300,000 this year in bills to lawyers representing his son Donald Trump Jr., according to public disclosures filed by the campaign. The campaign did not respond to a request for comment whether it will continue to pay for Trump Jr's legal expenses. The U.S. Federal Election Commission allows use of private campaign funds to pay legal bills arising from being a candidate or elected official.

ETHICS??? Doubtful.

Being president is not working out to be very lucrative for the Trumpster. His businesses are losing millions. The reviews on Yelp are a disaster. Some locations are closing. Unsurprisingly, the dips in business are so far mostly concentrated in big cities, where opposition to the commander-in-chief is especially strong. And the fact that so many of Trump’s holdings are in left-leaning urban areas may be producing more stories of consumer backlash than if his businesses were scattered more evenly around the country.

Hard to believe: Some people don't like Trump.
