Want credibility? How about not seeking 6+ figures in handouts by exploiting partisan sympathizers? Especially when, these are all people who's out-sized salaries have been funded by the taxpayer in the first place.



You're totally correct and I agree with you.  They should have funded their own defense funds from their ill-gotten gains like Cohen and Manafort!  Trump Jr. should start funding his as well...maybe start selling off some stuffed cheetahs, bison and Eric.  Cheers!

Cohen and Manafort to me fall into the drug dealer/mafia category. You play a certain game and there are risks and rewards. You get paid really well but almost always end up getting into trouble and must plan accordingly. These other folks, especially McCabe and Strozk are pretty much the same type of toolbags Brett Kavanaugh went to school with. Everything  given to them, entitled, arrogant, life long "public servants" who just leach off of the taxpayer.

Most gofundme campaigns are a scam, IMO. Donate money to a reputable charity and forget about gofundme.

You're correct.  I'm not sure the original intentions behind GoFundMe are what is actually happening with the site. 

Also, many forms of needed capital don't always fall under the charity/non-profit mandate, thus the creation of GoFundMe and sites like it.  So what should be funded and what should not becomes up for debate.  Cheers!
