Russia probes leave Trump associates struggling with huge legal bills

Caputo described the Russia probe as politically motivated and argued Trump’s opponents will not stop until “there’s a smoking crater where he once stood.”

“This can add up to hundreds of thousands of dollars for people, and that’s where destroying people comes in,” Caputo said.

Another former campaign hand said Trump “has hung us out to dry” by leaving associates to drown in their attorneys’ fees.

“Multibillionaire Donald Trump has a moral obligation to pay the mounting legal bills of his advisers who are facing four-, five- and six-figure costs just for doing their jobs,” said a former Trump adviser who had to pay thousands of dollars of his own money for legal representation.
