President Donald Trump’s reelection campaign shelled out more than $500,000 on legal fees last month, spending half of that amount on a boutique law office suing media companies on his behalf and almost $200,000 on Jones Day, the firm of former White House counsel Donald McGahn.

Trump’s campaign also directed a relatively meager sum, nearly $6,500, to Consovoy McCarthy, a firm that has defended the president in lawsuits seeking access to his financial records, according to a disclosure filed Wednesday. With that payment last month, the campaign’s total spending on Consovoy McCarthy came to nearly $200,000 since October 2019.
