A report shows the campaign for ex-President Donald Trump is still set on making as much money as possible from the indictment against him. The Trump team has mocked up a mugshot of the candidate to sell on t-shirts, despite indications that Trump would not be given a photo during his arraignment.
The Trump campaign distributed emails for advertising and donations before Trump’s arraignment. The t-shirts read “NOT GUILTY” and feature Trump holding a placard with his photograph.
With regards to the $130,000 in alleged hush money paid to adult film actress Stormy Daniels in 2016 during the US presidential election campaign, Trump has pleaded not guilty to charges of falsifying company records.
Trump’s arraignment before Judge Juan Merchan enthralled viewers throughout the globe as it was the first criminal charge of a former President.
Trump and his advisors are using the charges against him and his arraignment to drum up more support for his reelection bid in 2024. After the grand jury decided to prosecute the ex-president last week, his team boasted of having raised millions of dollars.
New court records reveal that adult film actress Stormy Daniels is responsible for an extended amount of former President Trump’s lawyer fees.
When her defamation action against Trump was dismissed, the court ordered Daniels to pay $300,000 in legal expenses to Trump’s legal team. An appeals court rejected Daniels’ argument that she should not have had to pay the fines last year.
Legal documents filed in the US Court of Appeals and disclosed by the Dhillon Law Group Inc. showed that Daniels now owes Trump an extra $121,962.56 in attorney costs.
Harmeet Dhillon, head of Dhillon Law Group, tweeted her congratulations to Donald Trump on the last attorney fee win in his favor.
Dhillon wrote that after the baseless lawsuits filed by Stormy Daniels, the company secured attorney fee awards totaling over $600,000.
