PLAYING DUMB: Don Jr Claims He Doesn’t Know Where $240M Trump Raised On His Big Lie Went In J6 Transcripts



Donald Trump Jr

Donald Trump Jr said that he did not know where the $240m raised to fight his father’s 2020 presidential election loss went, according to transcripts released by the House select committee investigating the January 6 riot at the US Capitol.

This week, the select committee released a trove of transcripts from its investigation into the January 6 attack on the US Capitol, including its witness testimony with Donald Trump Jr, along with that of other former Trump administration and campaign officials, and other figures involved in the aftermath of the 2020 presidential election and the Capitol riot.

According to the transcript of Trump Jr’s deposition, an interviewer noted that the Trump campaign raised about $250m to fight the election results, but only used $10m in litigation.

Asked if he knew where the rest of the money went, the former president’s son replied: “I do not.”

Pressed as to whether he had any conversations with his father about what happened to the rest of the money raised, he said: “Not that I recall.”

Don Jr. also told House investigators that Save America PAC, his father’s main political action committee, paid for the legal fees of some of the people who had testified before the select committee. But Trump Jr said that the PAC had not paid for his legal fees.

“I don’t know if that was an offer,” he said, according to the transcript. “I’ve certainly asked for them to do that since – but yes.”

The Jan 6 Committee released its full report last week as its mandate expires at the end of this Congress and Republicans have vowed to dismantle the Committee when they take over the majority early next year.
