In a recent revelation, the Democratic National Committee (DNC) has reportedly paid $1.5 million to cover President Joe Biden's legal expenses in Special Counsel Robert Hur's investigation.

This news emerges amidst the Biden campaign's ongoing criticism of Donald Trump, the presumptive Republican nominee for 2024, for using campaign funds to deal with his legal troubles.

A detailed report by Axios, which scrutinized the DNC's payment records, revealed that the committee had disbursed $1.5 million to attorneys and firms representing President Biden during the investigation. The probe into Biden's affairs was initiated in January 2023.

Between July 2023 and February 2024, the DNC paid $1.05 million to Bob Bauer PLLC, a legal firm led by Bauer, who is the president's chief attorney in the investigation. The majority of these payments were directed towards managing the probe into Biden. In addition, the DNC increased its payments to the law firm Hemenway & Barnes from $15,000 to $100,000 per month starting July 2023.

Simultaneously, the Biden campaign has intensified its criticism of Trump for using campaign funds to settle legal bills in several cases against him. The campaign has also criticized the Republican National Committee (RNC) for covering some of Trump's legal fees, including those from a civil case in 2021. Since 2022, these funds have been sourced from Trump's campaign.
