As you might have heard, Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller is investigating whether Trump had any ties to Russian interference with the 2016 election.
Several members of the staff, and aides, within Trump’s administration have gotten caught up in the investigation, and have chosen to retain counsel to represent them. A very smart thing to do, even, or maybe especially, if you’re innocent.
Some such people are Donald Trump, Jr., Reince Priebus, Steve Bannon, and Sean Spicer. Trump has announced that he will spend some of his own money, to the tune of $430,000, to help these guys out with their attorney fees.
