Trump Racks Up $382K For Legal Fees In Steele Dossier Case

Oh my. Seems like Old Orange is continuing his financial losing streak. Via the Associated Press:

LONDON (AP) — Former U.S. President Donald Trump has been ordered to pay a six-figure legal bill to a company founded by a former British spy that he unsuccessfully sued for making what his lawyer called “shocking and scandalous” false claims that harmed his reputation.

A London judge, who threw out the case against Orbis Business Intelligence last month saying it was “bound to fail,” ordered Trump to pay legal fees of 300,000 pounds ($382,000), according to court documents released Thursday.

Orbis was founded by Christopher Steele, who once ran the Russia desk for Britain’s Secret Intelligence Service, also known as MI6.

The British court case was one of few in which Trump, who is almost sure to win the 2024 Republican presidential nomination, was not a defendant as he faces massive legal problems back home.

For decades, Trump sued and countersued his way out of trouble, because few of the defendants had the time and cash to fight back effectively. Now, that tactic doesn’t work.

And in the meantime, Trump just posted a $90M bond in the E.J. Carroll case. No wonder he’s so sweaty and distracted.
