Donald Trump Won’t Pay Rudy Giuliani’s Legal Bills

The recent revelation that the former head of security at Mar-a-Lago altered his testimony, implicating former President Donald Trump in the Mar-a-Lago documents case, brought attention to the changes in his legal representation, a common occurrence in mob prosecutions when cooperating witnesses switch attorneys.

This development also raises questions about who is covering the substantial legal expenses for the co-defendants in Trump’s recent indictment in Georgia. According to CNBC, Trump and his political network have not extended financial assistance to his co-defendants for their legal fees. Defending against cases like this can cost over a million dollars.

Jenna Ellis, a former Trump attorney named in the Georgia indictment, shared on social media that she was informed Trump is not funding the indicted individuals.

As the number of co-defendants increases, the likelihood rises that prosecutors might attempt to persuade some to cooperate against Trump or others involved. Their loyalty to Trump may waver if he is not supporting their legal costs.

Meanwhile, another Trump attorney indicted in the Georgia case, Rudy Giuliani, reportedly requested financial aid directly from Trump. A $100,000-per-plate fundraiser for Giuliani is scheduled at Trump’s Bedminster club in New Jersey on September 7. The event will include a roundtable with Trump and Giuliani and a dinner with Giuliani, although the invitation suggests Trump won’t be present for dinner.

Andrew Giuliani, son of the former mayor, has sought Trump’s assistance in raising funds for his father’s legal expenses. Giuliani faces not only the Georgia case but also various civil lawsuits, including claims from Dominion and Smartmatic regarding false voter fraud accusations and a sexual harassment lawsuit from a former associate.

Giuliani surrendered to Georgia authorities on Wednesday, stating he was confident about defending the rights of all Americans. He displayed his determination while departing New York and appeared in court with former New York City Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik, where a mugshot was taken as part of the legal proceedings.
