Money from Pence’s Milwaukee fundraiser going to fund that’s paying Trump’s lawyers in Russian probe



Cost is $2,800 a person and $10,000 for a pic with Pence 

MILWAUKEE — Vice President Mike Pence is holding a fundraiser next week in Milwaukee.

Pence plans to hold the event on Sept. 28 at an undisclosed location in Milwaukee.

An invitation for the event obtained Wednesday by The Associated Press shows that it’s to benefit the Trump Victory fund, a joint fundraising committee for President Donald Trump’s campaign and the Republican National Committee.

Reports this week show that Trump has been using money donated to his re-election campaign and the Republican National Committee to pay for his lawyers in the probe of alleged Russian interference in the U.S. election, according to Reuters.

CNN also reported that the Republican National Committee paid in August more than $230,000 to cover some of Trump’s legal fees related to the probe.

Pence’s fundraiser will costs $2,700 per person to attend and $10,000 to get a photo with Pence. A private dinner with Pence costs $35,000 per couple and it’s $70,000 to be a part of the host committee.

Public events are typically scheduled around such fundraisers but nothing has been announced yet.

Pence was last in Wisconsin in June when he visited Milwaukee to drum up support for replacing former President Barack Obama’s health care law.
