James Quarles, the campaign’s attorney in New York, said on Wednesday that he is seeking more than half a million dollars from the federal government, which has been accused of not enforcing laws that would have stopped the Trump campaign from spending money in the lead-up to the November election.
The campaign has argued that it was not allowed to spend money during the 2016 election because it had no funds to do so, but the campaign has since been reimbursed for some of the costs.
The campaign is now seeking more.
The Trump campaign said in a statement on Wednesday: “We are in full compliance with all campaign finance laws.
We have been reimbursing the campaign for some expenses.
We are currently looking for additional funds.”
Quarles said he had not received any formal notification from the Department of Justice that he would need more money.
Quarels has filed a lawsuit seeking an injunction preventing the Trump team from using funds from the campaign.
He said in the lawsuit that the campaign is not a party to the lawsuit.
In the suit, Quarals claimed that the Trump camp had violated the Federal Election Campaign Act of 1971 and that the laws were unconstitutional and unconstitutional on its face.
He said he filed the lawsuit after the Trump administration ordered the campaign to stop accepting campaign donations after it was sued in August for violating election law by spending millions of dollars in the run-up and weeks after the election.
Quarals said the campaign spent at least $3.2 million during the campaign period, and that it paid back about $4.5 million of the money it had spent.
Quars said he believes the Trump organization is entitled to the money owed because the campaign did not appear in the Federal Elections Commission’s records as a non-party entity for several months prior to the filing of the lawsuit, when the Trump Campaign was in a different filing with the FEC, the lawsuit said.
“There was no legal requirement for them to report as a nonprofit,” Quarales said.
“There was absolutely no requirement for us to report.
There was no requirement to file with the [federal] Election Commission.
There were no requirements to file as a foreign agent.
There’s absolutely no legal reason why they couldn’t report as such.”
We have not received a formal notice that we need more than that, and we will continue to file our lawsuit,” he said.
Quames is seeking an amount that would allow him to hire an attorney to defend him in the suit and to collect damages.
He added that he expects to file the lawsuit within the next two months.
