Trump's PAC spends over $3.8 million on legal fees in August
Former President Donald Trump spent over $3.8 million on "legal consulting" fees in August, the month the FBI searched his Mar-a-Lago home, according to a campaign finance report for his "Save America" political action committee.
A bulk of the legal payments are going to lawyers representing him in the Mar-a-Lago documents case.
The firm is based out of Palm Beach, Fla., less than three miles from Trump's Mar-a-Lago club.
Former Florida solicitor general Chris Kise is not currently listed as one of the firm's attorneys, but Kise was reportedly paid $3 million up front to represent Trump,
Kise was previously a partner at Foley & Lardner, but his ties with the firm were severed upon his hiring by Trump. Kise filed articles of incorporation with the state of Florida on Aug. 24 and entered his first appearance for Trump on Sept. 1.
Neither the firm nor Kise responded to CBS News' requests for comment regarding the payment. A spokesperson for Trump has also not responded to a request for comment.
Save America also paid $207,827 to "Habba Madaio & Associates, LLP," the firm of Trump attorney Alina Habba.
Ifrah Law PLLC, the firm of Trump attorney James Trusty, received $242,770. Trump attorney Evan Corcoran's firm, Silverman, Thompson, Slutkin & White, LLC, received $68,413.
