Trump alumni raising millions for legal defenses while scouting for White House hires

Some of former president Donald Trump’s co-defendants in a Georgia election interference case are receiving legal funding from a charity started to help people charged in efforts to overturn the 2020 election results, according to people familiar with the group.

The legal fund beneficiaries include John Eastman, a lawyer who advised the Trump campaign on trying to reject the electoral votes; Jeffrey Clark, a former Justice Department official who sought to delegitimize the 2020 vote; former Trump campaign official Mike Roman, who coordinated alternate slates of pro-Trump electors; and alternate electors such as former Georgia GOP chair David Shafer and former Coffee County GOP chair Cathy Latham. The group also supports Peter Navarro, a former Trump White House adviser serving a four-month prison sentence for defying a congressional subpoena.
