MUELLER’S MILLIONS: DOJ Has Spent Over $17 MILLION on Russia Probe So Far

Originally published at:

The Department of Justice has spent over $17 million on its investigation into Russian election interference since last May, says a new financial report published Thursday by the DOJ.

The report shows the department spent nearly $7 million from May 2017 until October 2017, and an additional $10 million to date; bringing the total to over $17 million worth of tax payer money to probe the Kremlin’s involvement in the 2016 race for the White House.

Special counsel Robert Mueller was appointed in May 2017 after Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself from any investigation into the Trump campaign, setting the stage for the high-stakes showdown between the President and the special counsel.

The President slammed the report Thursday, saying “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!”

He can stop playing golf and it would be payed for.


The Bhengazi investigation cost $7.8 million and resulted in nothing. $17 million for 22 indictments is a bargin in comparison.


13 of which are for Russian nationals in Russia whom Mueller knows he will never have to prove up.
Gates and Manafort that were already being handled just fine but Mueller pulled them over to his review so he could take credit.
ONe person pleading guilty of lying who had already been fired for lying.
And a few liars with nothing else proven.

I’d say a pretty sorry return. In fact, a return of nothing.

Flynn wasn’t fired for lying. He was fired for getting caught.

Everyone in jail was put there for getting caught.

Flynn didn’t get fired for lying to the FBI. The indictment came quite some time after he was fired. Flynn didn’t lie to the administration. The incident he “lied” about was done at the request of the Trump administration.

democrat s have had their time on the golf course as well. Did those outings bother you? The point is that the House Intelligence Committee did not find evidence of collusion and they had to get their information from the same source that mueller is using. Leftist ploy to slow down Trump’s work.

Flynn caused his own trouble but it was nothing serious. He did not want the media circus around him any longer and quit.

17 million!!!

That’s all?

It would take four of these investigations to cost as much as the President’s golf trips. All the President has to do is cut is golfin’ trips by a quarter to pay for this whole thing.

This is peanuts compared to fat donald’s future military parade on Veteran’s Day.

Unfortunately, a free flow of random thoughts is not evidence. And most likely he was fired for lying to Pence.

What’s the over/under on Donald wearing at least some kind of sash? Or how about a chest full of ribbons and medals?

Hillary spent $1.2 billion and couldn’t stop Trump MAGA!

No. The evidence comes in the form of Flynn’s communications that night to and from campaign staff.

If he lied to Pence, that’s only because Pence is entirely clueless as to what happens in the administration.

My question is how much are we spending to make sure that Russians or anyone else can’t meddle in our elections in the future? We seem to still be in the dark about what steps DHS is taking.

Ok. Ignore the Russians. 6 indictments with 4 guilty pleas and a prison sentence. Your definition of “nothing” and mine are pretty different.

Pence was warned directly and ignored it. Pence should be fired for that.

Hillary lost bro, get over it.
