Michael Flynn’s Family Sets Up Legal Defense Fund

Politico reports:

The family of former White House national security adviser Michael Flynn has set up a legal defense fund for him, soliciting donations to ease the “tremendous financial burden” from the ongoing investigations into his actions and the 2016 presidential campaign.

“The enormous expense of attorneys’ fees and other related expenses far exceed their ability to pay,” Flynn’s brother and sister said in a statement emailed to reporters early Monday.

“To help ensure that he can defend himself, we have set up a legal defense fund, and we are asking Mike’s supporters, veterans, and all people of goodwill to contribute whatever amount they can to this fund.”

The fund will not accept donations from foreign governments, nor will it accept money from the Trump campaign or the Trump Organization.
