According to the report, the Trump campaign paid $1.1 million in legal fees in the fourth quarter of 2017, and has spent $4 million since he took office previous year.

Trump spent £3.9 million in the very first quarter. The president and Cohen have filed their own suit against her, threatening to seek millions in damages.

The money was divided up between at least eight different firms and the Trump Corporation, according to an analysis from Buzzfeed. The campaign also paid $13, 468 to the law firm of McDermott, Will, and Emery, where Stephen Ryan, the attorney for Trump's longtime personal lawyer Michael Cohen, works. The firm previously received payments from the campaign totaling $30,500 in October and November, an earlier filing shows. The haul puts Trump's campaign account at $28 million with more than two years to go before Election Day.

Cash shortage: Govt might take 3 days to restore cash
Government has formed state-wise committee and RBI also formed committee to transfer currency from one state to other. SBI Chairman Rajnish Kumar said, "To say that there is shortage of currency is not a right statement to make".

Federal prosecutors in Manhattan revealed in court papers Friday that Cohen, whose office and residences were raided by the FBI last week, has been under investigation for months. Those small-dollar donors gave $8.7 million of that amount. In first quarter of 2018, 61 percent of the direct contributions to his campaign committee came from donations of $200 or less.

Responding to the Ricketts campaign filing, Democratic gubernatorial candidate Bob Krist said he has been "focused on performing my elected duties in the Nebraska Legislature" and has been delayed in mounting a concerted fundraising campaign. The campaign has also paid Parscale Strategy, the firm run by the 2020 reelection campaign manager Brad Parscale, almost $1.7 million so far this year. Recall that during the 2016 campaign, Parscale was in charge of overseeing the campaign's digital media strategy and its online fundraising campaigns.

Johnny McEntee, Trump's former personal assistant who was forced out when he couldn't be get security clearance, was hired by the campaign in March. McEntee was sacked from the White House amid a Department of Homeland Security investigation into possible financial crimes, a source told CNN after he was dismissed.
