DNC Caught Funneling Millions to Law Firms Involved in Unprecedented Lawfare Campaign Against Trump

The Democratic National Committee (DNC) has funneled millions of dollars to law firms actively involved in an aggressive lawfare campaign against President Donald Trump.

The information came to light after a comprehensive review of Federal Election Commission (FEC) records conducted by the Daily Caller.

According to FEC filings, since August 2021, the DNC has allocated nearly $2 million to Kaplan Hecker & Fink LLP for ‘legal services’. Roberta A. Kaplan, a founding partner of the firm, gained recognition for representing E. Jean Carroll in her lawsuits alleging sexual assault and defamation by Trump. Interestingly, prior to August 2021, the DNC had not engaged this firm for any services since its establishment in 2017.

The timing and details of these payments are raising questions, especially since Joshua Matz, another partner at Kaplan Hecker & Fink LLP, served as counsel for the House Judiciary Committee during both of Trump’s impeachment trials.

It’s worth noting that both Judge Kaplan and Roberta Kaplan, who are not related, previously worked together at the same prestigious law firm in the early 1990s.

This connection was discovered by Charles Gasparino, a columnist for The New York Post, who followed a lead suggesting that Judge Kaplan had once mentored Roberta Kaplan.

From 1992 until 2016, Roberta Kaplan was affiliated with the law firm Paul, Weiss, Rifkin, Wharton & Garrison. Coincidentally, Judge Lewis Kaplan also served as a partner at the same firm during this period.

Judge Kaplan was a partner until he was appointed to the federal bench in 1994, while Roberta Kaplan remained at the firm until 2016 before establishing her own firm, Kaplan Hecker & Fink.

Adding to the controversy, it was discovered that Shawn Crowley, one of Carroll’s main attorneys, reportedly worked as a law clerk for Judge Kaplan in the past. Additionally, it has been revealed that the judge co-officiated Crowley’s wedding.

Furthermore, according to FEC filings examined by the Daily Caller, the DNC has paid several million dollars to Wilmer Cutler Pickering Hale and Dorr LLP since 2021. This firm has a longstanding association with the DNC and has submitted numerous Amicus briefs in the ongoing United States v. Donald Trump case before the Supreme Court.

This revelation directly contradicts a statement made by DNC spokesperson Alex Floyd in April, who claimed, “The DNC does not spend a single penny of grassroots donors’ money on legal bills.”
