A report from the Justice Department revealed Thursday that taxpayers have spent nearly $17 million to fund Robert Mueller’s witch hunt of an investigation into Russia’s meddling in the 2016 election. Most of the money, according to the report, has gone to pay Mueller’s team of 13 Angry Democrats in addition to the salary of Mueller himself and the FBI agents working with the special counsel. Other top expenditures include rent and IT services. We assume some money is being thrown at a fiction writer somewhere along the line, but it is not enumerated in the report.
The special counsel’s investigation has now been in progress for more than a year; Mueller’s supposed job is to find and indict those Russians responsible for hacking the DNC and other forms of election meddling; his secondary purpose is to determine if and how any Americans – including members of the Trump campaign – helped the Kremlin achieve these goals. Considering the weak effects of the “meddling,” we’re not sure this inquiry deserves nearly $20 million in taxpayer funds, even if the investigation were completely above board. But then again, this hasn’t really been about Russia for a long time, if it ever was. This is about getting the dangerous-to-the-establishment Donald Trump out of the White House, and that’s ALL it’s about.
“A.P. has just reported that the Russian Hoax Investigation has now cost our government over $17 million, and going up fast,” President Trump tweeted on Thursday. “No Collusion, except by the Democrats!”
Though Rudy Giuliani has said he expects Mueller to wrap up his investigation by September, the word we keep hearing is that Mueller is going to be careful not to make “any major announcements” before the midterms. That indicates that this investigation may very well stretch into 2019 and cost the taxpayers another $17 million, if not more. Although we’re sure that if Democrats re-take the House in November, Mueller will find it suddenly expedient to wrap it up and send his final report straight to Nancy Pelosi’s desk so the Grand Impeachment can begin. We almost hope that’s how it unfolds, because it could be just the thing to put Democrats out of power for a generation. They are going to embarrass themselves and the United States on an epic stage.
