If you can’t pay for the lawyers time, don’t do the white collar crime.

There must be a Trump tweet to cover this–something about innocent people not needing lawyers.

Picked up half-million dollar contract (undisclosed) while heading into the admin., kept working on (undisclosed) nuclear deal in the middle east once in office - Mikey were you going to share all that money with potential donors like the ones you are asking now to pay for your defense for your public corruption (at the least)? Of course not.

Not looking good for you Boy-o.

How did turning to the dark side of talk/radio/media grifty politics work out for you? Raked in some big bucks. Got trips paid for by cough “your speaker bureau”. Got your minutes of fame in front of frothing rally (and convention) audiences.

Now you are likely to do the poetic dance to your one time convention chant but it won’t be “her” getting locked up.

Right?! But that is how blinding their grifty bubble is. Doesn’t matter how bad the deed - hook up with the Don and you’ll get a free pass. ~snickering at all the fools who believed that malarkey.~

His family said that the fund would not accept donations from foreign governments…

Foreign individuals, though - especially of the oligarch type - are welcome and encouraged to donate anonymously.

…the fund would not accept donations from foreign governments or from the Trump Organization or the Trump campaign, according to Politico.

Maybe not from “foreign governments,” but I’m sure he’ll be happy to take money from Putin’s oligarch friends. And hush money from Trump will go to Flynn and his family, not to lawyers.

C’mon Mike, make your deal, rat out the lot of them, get sent to a country club prison. Screw 'em all. They’ll throw you under that bus with all the other bodies in a heartbeat…

Now be sure to get it in writing.

Pro Tip–If so inclined, send in a 1 cent donation. It will cost much more to process it.

Didn’t the White House Ethics Office – ahem – recently determine that legal defense funds can accept anonymous donations?

I wonder why he thinks he needs the $$ now? Is it all for Jr? Could it be Trump can not pardon Treason? Whatever the reason, you can smell the fear and it smells like victory. :smile:
