GOP mega-donors Sheldon and Miriam Adelson have donated $500,000 to a legal fund for Trump associates.

The donation was revealed in filings to the IRS by the conservative power couple. TPM published the tax documents.
========================================
It must be nice to have virtually unlimited amounts of money. It's also telling that Trump's associates require this kind of cash to pay their legal bills,

On a completely unrelated note, Trump gave Miriam Adelson the Presidential Medal of Freedom this Fall.

Not a coincidence?

From the article:
"Many members of the President’s team, in order to have the legal counsel necessary to cooperate with these investigations, have been forced to incur heavy financial costs."
-- Patriot Legal Fund​

Well, that's what it takes to deal with the "fleas" when one "lies down with a dog."


Or, if one prefers, those aides should have known better than to "play with a pig."

Yeah, pretty sure there's some connection there.

Pay for play. Break all the laws you want as long as you stroke Miriam the right way.
