The New York Daily News reports:
Special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian meddling has cost just under $8 million since the former FBI director was appointed last May, according to a new spending report released Thursday.
The bill is a far cry from the $20 million President Trump claims that probe has cost and is only slightly higher than Environmental Protection Agency head Scott Pruitt’s $3 million annual security cost.
The Department of Justice’s expenditure report shows Mueller’s team has racked up $4.5 million in costs from Oct. 1, 2017, through March 31, 2018. That’s on top of $3.2 million that was spent from May through September last year.
….At what point does this soon to be $20,000,000 Witch Hunt, composed of 13 Angry and Heavily Conflicted Democrats and two people who have worked for Obama for 8 years, STOP! They have found no Collussion with Russia, No Obstruction, but they aren’t looking at the corruption…
