Joe Biden got help from the DNC for his legal bills.

According to a new report, the DNC paid $1.5 million in legal bills for Joe Biden’s classified documents scandal.

Breitbart reported:

The Democratic National Committee (DNC) paid President Joe Biden’s legal bills of $1.5 million for the classified documents scandal, financial filings show.

The payments come in spite of the DNC’s repeated attacks against former President Donald Trump for using campaign funds to cover legal fees.

Special counsel Robert Hur launched a probe into Biden in January 2023 for mishandling classified documents. Despite Biden’s millionaire status as a lifelong politician, the DNC picked up the legal tap, Axios reported:

From July 2023 to February 2024, the DNC paid $1.05 million to Bob Bauer PLLC — the professional limited liability company for Biden’s lead attorney, Bob Bauer.

Those payments were largely for handling the special counsel probe, including bringing on veteran lawyer David Laufman. He’s a former Justice Department official who previously oversaw the politically fraught probes into Hillary Clinton’s email server and Russian interference in the 2016 election.

The Biden campaign attacked Donald Trump for his using of campaign funds for legal fees.

Axios reported:

Why it matters: The payments, made through the Democratic National Committee, are at odds with the Biden campaign’s recent attacks on Donald Trump for spending his campaign funds on legal fees.
