Former President Trump and his die-hard allies raised $250 million off their claims the 2020 election was stolen
but most of the funds went toward his newly created Save America PAC rather than to pay for various challenges to Joe Biden’s victory,
the House select committee probing last year’s Capitol riot revealed Monday.
In a video presentation near the end of the committee’s second public hearing in five days, the panel’s senior investigative counsel, Amanda Wick, said

According to Wick, more than $100 million alone was raised in the first week after Election Day.
Most of the funds raised by Trump to fight Joe Biden’s presidential victory went towards his newly created Save America PAC.
The video included screen captures of messages begging Trump allies to give to an Official Election Defense Fund. The select board found no such asset existed, said Wick.
The board likewise capitalized on sound of Trump 2020 mission computerized chief Gary Coby concurring with a the questioner store was simply a showcasing strategy.
