Screwed Bigly: Trump is sitting on $105 million he could contribute to MAGA rioters' defense — but won't

Mod
: He might love them as dearly as he's claimed, but Donald Trump is still quite content to leave the seditionists to rot in jail.

Trump is sitting on $105 million he could contribute to MAGA rioters' defense — but he's leaving them out to dry (Raw Story link): On Thursday, the Huffington Post reported that former President Donald Trump's "Save America" PAC is sitting on $105 million, enough to pay $156,000 to the legal defense of every single person charged in the January 6 Capitol attack — but he has made no effort to do so.

"In all, 670 of Trump's Jan. 6 mob face permanent criminal records and five- and six-figure legal bills for believing Trump's lies that the 2020 presidential election had been stolen from him, and acting on his requests that they do something about it," reported S.V. Date. "Cynthia Hughes, who is collecting money to help Jan. 6 defendants — her 'Patriot Freedom Project' web site offers visitors the opportunity to make a '1/6 Thanksgiving Pledge' — appeared on Trump adviser Steve Bannon's podcast and urged Trump to act."

Despite these pleas, however, Trump appears to be leaving the people who attacked the Capitol for him out to dry.

"Federal Election Commission records ... show that through the first half of this year, Trump had not paid for anyone's legal costs related to Jan. 6, other than possibly his own," said the report. "Through June 30, Trump's 'Save America' political committee had paid $206,480 to Elections, LLC, the firm co-founded by Justin Clark, one of the lawyers representing Trump in its dealings with the House Jan. 6 committee."

This comes, ironically, amid new reports showing that the Republican National Committee is paying for Trump's personal legal bills relating to criminal investigations in New York.

Trump's unwillingness to help the rioters so far stands in stark contrast to his famous comments on the 2016 campaign trail that he would pay the legal fees of anyone arrested for "knocking the crap" out of people at his rallies. 

Some of the rioters, including so-called "QAnon Shaman" Jacob Chansley who has now been sentenced to 41 months in prison, were under the impression that the former president would pardon them on his way out the door, and that there wouldn't even be any charges in the first place.

  3. Money or no money, Trump doesnt give one flying f*ck about any one of these losers or anyone else; we all already knew that years ago. Unless there was something he wanted from somebody, and he'd say something awkwardly nice or whatever, and then somebody would cream up loving the adulation.

  5. Just read in the Pasadena Star News that there is an email going out that looks real for the Donate Beto campaign to donate to Beto O'Roarke for Texas. Gotta figure out how to verify the real one, to get rid of that trumpian Abbott.

  10. This is a very bad idea, since communists are not to be trusted, at ALL or ever.

    Chinese media applauds Interpol appointment, dismisses international concern over 'Operation Fox Hunt'.
    ALL chinese communist are blind faith followers of the dictator inside communist china.
