Cobb recovers legal fees in Trump election fraud trial
COBB COUNTY, GA – Cobb County has just recovered legal fees it spent in a voter fraud lawsuit between the county and former President Donald Trump, his campaign, and Republican Party of Georgia Chairman David Shafer.
Cobb County sued Trump, his campaign and Shafer in February for legal fees after the three filed a lawsuit in December – naming Cobb County Registration and Election Officer Janine Eveler as the one of the defendants – alleging fraud and irregularities in the presidential election of Georgia.
DeKalb County joined Cobb’s trial, as his director of voter registration and election was also sued in Trump’s trial – which was withdrawn on January 7, just a day after the siege on Capitol Hill and the certification of the victory of President Joe Biden.
Thirteen other directors of the county’s electoral department have also been listed as accused, along with Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger. Since Eveler was sued in her capacity as a county employee, taxpayer money has been used to cover legal fees.
But last week the county electoral board received $ 15,554 to cover legal fees until June 1, the county attorney confirmed this, according to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
“The two motions [for attorneys’ fees] have been withdrawn. There was no settlement agreement, ”Trump attorney Randy Evans told AJC. “DeKalb and Cobb taxpayers have been fully reimbursed. There are no other details because there are no other details. “
Evans did not say who paid the fees, but denied it was Trump. Daniel White, the attorney representing Cobb County, confirmed the payment came from Evans’ law firm, AJC reported.
