Jan. 6 report traces millions of dollars in Trump payments. Money went to aides, assistants and Melania’s fashion adviser

Donald Trump’s campaign raised more than $250 million after the November 2020 election as part of a purported effort to “Stop the Steal” and combat “election fraud,” but most of the funds were diverted for other purposes, according to the House Jan. 6 committee report.

“President Trump and his campaign ripped off supporters by raising more than $250 million by claiming they wanted to fight fraud they knew did not exist and to challenge an election they knew he lost,” the committee’s report says, echoing earlier news reports about how funds raised for the post-election challenges were used.
