Is there any redress on a state level

for the people who donated to Trump believing they were helping to advance his suits to overthrow the election, but whose money was really intended to fund his life after he leaves the WH? I would love to see him leave office deeply in debt.

I hope the cities and states who have not yet been reimbursed for their expenses for his rallies will continue to go after him, but I'd really like to see all the Trump Campaign funds frozen for a couple of years, at least.

I'm assuming there'll be some kind of pardon for federal hanky-panky.

1. That was Trump 2020

Not Trump 2024, Save America PAC, or the RNC. Rich people love to flee their debts by moving to another corporate name.

2. Pardons only apply to criminal acts

 

He can't pardon his way out of civil lawsuits for money damages.

3. Let's be clear: the money CANNOT be used to "fund his life"

These are still FEC-regulated accounts. They can only be used for expenses for his campaign or contributions (in limited amounts) to other candidates or Committees.

4. When they first reported

this scam, it was mentioned that the small print spelled out how the money would be apportioned. With trump, always read the fine print and know that patriotic sounding groups are meant for his pocket.
