The never ending Mueller investigation is racking up quite a price tag. Not that liberals will care. The left would go to any length to remove Trump from office. They would see this as a small price to pay in order to achieve that goal.
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
Special Counsel Investigation Has Cost Taxpayers $25.2 Million
The special counsel investigation into the 2016 election has cost taxpayers over $25 million and counting.
Robert Mueller’s office released its latest expenditures spanning from April 1, 2018, through Sept. 30, 2018, finding the special counsel racked up over $8.4 million in five months.
The statement of expenditures reveals Mueller and his team of lawyers cost over $4.5 million for salaries and rent, and an additional $3.9 million in resources from the Department of Justice.
Personnel compensation and benefits cost taxpayers $2,886,270, including $1 million for special counsel office employees, and $1.9 million for Department of Justice employees who have been detailed to the investigation.
Between April and September, Mueller spent $580,098 on travel and transportation; $779 on “transportation of things”; $942,787 on rent and utilities; $15,618 on printing; $310,732 on contractual services; and $43,334 on supplies.
Expenditures reported by the Department of Justice that were attributable to the Russia investigation totaled $3,906,000. The total cost during the five-month period was $8,473,533.
How much longer is this going to go on and how much more are taxpayers expected to be charged for it?
