But not because he was worried about what he might divulge to Robert Mueller or anything. Wink wink.

John Dowd, the defense attorney who formerly led President Donald Trump’s legal team, tried to help pay legal fees for Paul Manafort and Rick Gates earlier this year, The Wall Street Journal reported Friday.

Dowd initially tried to use money from the White House’s legal defense fund and later solicited donors, sources familiar with the matter told The Journal. He even reportedly pledged $25,000 of his own money at one point but ultimately didn’t make the contribution.

Dowd told the Journal that he took those actions because he was opposed to how investigators had treated Manafort.

“I care about a lot of people,” Dowd said. “I was offended as a citizen and a lawyer.”

What a great humanitarian. 

I wonder who else’s legal bills John Dowd pays? 

You know people who DON’T have information that could potentially send the president of the United States to prison I mean.  

Let’s face it, John Dowd wanted to get inside information about Manafort’s legal defense and helping to pay for it seemed like an easy way in. 

But it did not happen and now Manafort is cooperating with the investigation, and Dowd jumped ship.

    Probably a petty comment, but it always amazes me when people who have lots of money don’t take care of themselves…go to the dentist for example.

      He could get a bag, to place over his piggy head, for free at the grocer.
