Republican Party refusing to pay Trump's legal bills over Mar-a-Lago documents scandal: report

By Sarah K. Burris ABC News reporter Jonathan Karl wrote in his post-Donald Trump administration book that on Jan. 20, as Trump was flying from the White House

for the final time, he spoke to the head of the Republican Party and threatened to start his own party. RNC chair Ronna Romney McDaniel reportedly told Trump that if he started a

third party that the RNC would stop paying his legal bills, which were costing the party millions. Politico reported Tuesday, however, that that decision has ended.

According to the report, any legal fees having to do with Trump's retention of government documents is not being paid by the RNC. The report explained that Trump hired

Chris Kise, a former Florida solicitor general, to represent him in the FBI search case, it was announced on Tuesday. Thus far, Trump has suffered with a legal team that is moving

quickly to appear on television but not in filing a legal defense for their client. Christina Bobb may be under her own legal problems after signing court documents saying

that Trump had already turned over all of the documents. That turned out to be false. IN OTHER NEWS: DOJ obtains second search warrant for phone of Trump lawyer John
