A political action group controlled by Donald Trump, the Save America PAC, has spent millions of dollars on law firms representing his adult children, particularly Ivanka Trump, for their personal legal issues.

The PAC has been used as a primary fundraising vehicle, with a significant portion of its expenses going towards legal fees for Trump’s legal battles and those of his family members.

“In 2020, he raised tens of millions of dollars for the PAC by making baseless claims of a stolen election and casting the PAC as an ‘Official Election Defense Fund,'” Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington research director Robert Maguire said.

“Since then, the committee has largely become a vehicle for paying his, his family’s, and his associates’ legal bills while also channeling tens of millions to a pro-Trump super PAC.”

The law firms representing Ivanka Trump in a civil fraud trial received substantial payments from the PAC.

“Ms. Trump’s factual and legal defenses are unique, both because the legal theory and factual allegations made against her are different, and because she left the company in January, 2017,” Michael Farina wrote.

The PAC has been criticized for using funds to cover legal expenses for Trump and his associates, raising questions about the use of political donors’ money for personal legal representation.

“The FEC’s Republican commissioners have voted against every single instance where the agency’s own nonpartisan lawyers have found reason to believe Trump or his committees committed violations,” Maguire said.
