Russia Defense Crowdfunding Stalls

Based on the crowds filling the rallies, you would think that the fund to defend Administration officials in the Mueller Russia investigation would be bulging.

But the crowdfunding efforts of the “Patriot Legal Expense Fund Trust’s disclosure reports show that it raised just over $200,000 in about five months of operation.”

The legal defense fund for ousted FBI agent Andrew McCabe raised that in 2 days. And the Clinton fund in the ’90s raised over $9 million.

Moreover, the Fund has donated nothing so far to help any of the victims of the witch hunt. Could there be some fatigue in the support of these participants in the inner circle?
