RNC Paying Trump’s Legal Bill for N.Y. Probe of Real Estate Firm

The Republican National Committee paid $121,670 in October to a law firm representing Donald Trump in an ongoing criminal investigation in New York.

Two payments to the New York firm Fischetti & Malgieri for “legal and compliance services” were included in an RNC disclosure report filed Friday with the Federal Election Commission.

“I am being paid to represent Donald Trump,” Ronald Fischetti, the head of the firm, told Bloomberg Government in an interview Monday. He said he’s representing Trump in his individual capacity, not Trump’s company.
