Former President Donald Trump’s primary fundraising tool, Save America, has requested a refund of $60 million it previously donated to another political action committee supporting his 2024 White House bid, as reported by The New York Times on Saturday.
Save America has been instrumental in covering Trump’s legal expenses, which have reached $40 million this year, according to The Washington Post. The PAC was initially established shortly after the November 2020 election, during a time when Trump was raising funds based on unsubstantiated claims of election fraud. Over the course of 2021 and 2022, Save America contributed $16 million to cover Trump’s legal fees.
Having already faced indictments in New York for alleged falsification of business records and in Florida over the mishandling of classified documents at Mar-a-Lago post-presidency, Trump may now be confronted with additional indictments stemming from Special Counsel Jack Smith’s investigation into the January 6 events and from Fulton County, Georgia District Attorney Fanni Willis’ inquiry into attempts to overturn the state’s 2020 election results.
