Trump's reelection campaign spent over $834, 000 on legal consulting fees in the first quarter of 2018, the three month period from January 1 to March 31, according to records from the federal election commission disclosed Sunday afternoon.

The money was divided up between at least eight different firms and the Trump Corporation, according to an analysis from Buzzfeed.

20 17 was ended by his re election campaign in funds with $22 million.

The two legal firms involved in the fight with Daniels - Harding LLP and Larocca, Hornik, Rosen, Greenberg & Blaha - were paid a combined total of $280,000. She wants to invalidate a $130,000 agreement to keep her relationship with Trump secret.

The court heard that Ant had 75mg of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath - twice the legal limit, according to The Telegraph . Ant was found to be twice the legal limit when he crashed his auto into two other vehicles in South London on March 21.

In the first two months of 2018, the campaign paid $93,181.25 to the firm of Charles Harder, the attorney representing Trump in the Stormy Daniels case.

Using campaign funds to pay for the president's mounting legal fees related to Daniels and the Russian Federation investigation means that the money small-dollar donors are giving to the president's campaign isn't all going toward traditional reelection efforts like ads, campaign staff payroll, and fundraising. The campaign spent approximately $3.88 million during this time frame-legal fees constituted 20% of the disbursements.

A consulting company owned by Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale was paid $1.7 million for digital and advertising services, according to the finance records.

Trump's campaign and two fundraising committees that jointly raise funds with the Republican National Committee collected a total of almost $20.2 million in the first quarter, the Post reported. It raised $10.1 million in the first three months of 2018, and had $28.3 million in cash on-hand by the end of March. Traditionally, most incumbent presidents have waited to begin with their own re election effort.

Other notable payments from the campaign include $22,000 to Johnny McEntee, the president's former personal aide. McEntee lost his White House job after an investigation found his gambling habits posed a security risk, The Washington Post reported.
