 Trump’s Georgia co-defendants turn to crowdfunding sites, members of Congress as they struggle to pay legal bills

Allies and supporters of former President Donald Trump who were indicted in Georgia last month over their attempts to reverse the 2020 election result are fighting to stay ahead of their legal bills — turning to crowdfunding websites, legal defense funds and even members of Congress.

Ex-Trump attorneys John Eastman and Jenna Ellis, former Justice Department official Jeffrey Clark and former Coffee County Republican Party Chair Cathy Latham have all launched fundraising drives on GiveSendGo since they were indicted Aug. 14 by a Fulton County grand jury.

Eastman, who urged former Vice President Mike Pence to decertify Joe Biden’s victory and alleged that 72,000 people had voted unlawfully in the Peach State, had raised $519,035 as of Friday afternoon — the most of any crowdfunding co-defendant.

Ellis, who is now backing Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination, had raised $189,382, while Clark collected $58,059 and Latham had gotten $15,899.

Former New York City Mayor and Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani has launched his own legal defense fund, for which the former president is hosting a $100,000-per-ticket event at his Bedminster, NJ, golf resort next week.
