PICKING UP THE TAB: DNC Paid Biden's Legal Fees in Robert Hur's Classified Documents Probe; Report

You don’t say…

After months of criticizing the RNC for paying Donald Trump’s legal fees, we now know that the DNC paid President Biden’s legal fees during special counsel Robert Hur’s classified documents investigation.

Trump’s Save America PAC spent $47 million on legal consulting last year; the DNC covered $1.5 million in legal fees for Biden, according to the committee’s financial filings.

From Axios:

From July 2023 to February 2024, the DNC paid $1.05 million to Bob Bauer PLLC — the professional limited liability company for Biden’s lead attorney, Bob Bauer.

Those payments were largely for handling the special counsel probe, including bringing on veteran lawyer David Laufman. He’s a former Justice Department official who previously oversaw the politically fraught probes into Hillary Clinton’s email server and Russian interference in the 2016 election.

Last weekend, the Biden campaign’s finance chair said on MSNBC that “every single time you give to the campaign, we’re going straight to talk to voters…We are not spending money on legal bills or hawking gold sneakers,” a reference to Trump.

Asked about Biden’s use of the DNC to pay his legal bills, DNC spokesperson Alex Floyd told Axios: “There is no comparison — the DNC does not spend a single penny of grassroots donors’ money on legal bills — unlike Donald Trump, who actively solicits legal fees from his supporters and has drawn down every bank account he can get his hands on, like a personal piggy bank.”
