Posted on 12/06/2017 1:34:54 AM PST by Vlad The Inhaler
The Department of Justice issued the first financial report for Special Counsel Robert Muellers Russia investigation Tuesday, indicating the costs ran well into the millions months ago.
The report, which covers the investigation from its inauguration on May 17 to the end of September, shows a total expenditure to that point of $3,213,695.
But buried in the report is the fact that the Department of Justice spent an additional $3,546,000 outside the Special Counsels budget to support Muellers investigation, yielding a total expenditure through September of $6,759,695.

So the actual cost is more than twice as much as the direct expenditures first reported.
Almost $6.8 million in only 4½ months = $1.5 million per month.
How much is it per maggot, fully loaded?

The Clinton Foundation should be paying for it.
How much of those lawyer fees are being cycled back to the DNC for 2018?
Some of you will get that if you were around in the 90s
I love when the DOJ,SEC,DHS, accept a settlement from company X to pay for charges that they harmed entity Y. Then they take that money and do not give it to the treasury but instead fund groups like ACORN, ANTIFA, etc.....What a scam.
Well now. Isn't it a good thing we jumped up and down and stomped our feet for an expenditure report?
Now, make it law that reporting is required bi-weekly. Period. Three million for personnel, equipment and travel? And four million for what? incidentals? Balderdash. (let's see, who'd be good at pushing this thru? ahhh...Cruz...he's the ticket to ride on this baby.)
“Now, make it law that reporting is required bi-weekly. Period.”
As a military project manager in a company organized in a matrix, where nobody reports directly to me and I don’t sign timecards, I learned a trick. What normally happened was, say, the engineering manager, would assign a few people and give them charge numbers I was responsible for. They’d play computer games or stare at their navels and charge my numbers. The trick is, stop by each day, ask what they are doing for me that day, then stop by again at the end of the day and chat about their results. Not only does this keep me informed about what they are doing, it prevents them from wasting my money on something else. When somebody is billing you lawyer rates and they are not productive for a day, it adds up pretty fast. Especially, when you have a lot of them doing it.
You have to wonder, what, exactly, are we, the taxpayers getting for $1.5 million dollars per month. I’d bet if you brought one of those guys in and had him bullet point for you what he’d accomplished, it would be a prosecutable crime.
On the Future Combat Systems program at least a year went by when we had no requirements defined to which we could design to. But the award fees were based on a spend plan that assumed all those requirements were in place on day one, which they should have been. Management insisted that the spend plan be adhered to (or they wouldn’t get their bonuses.) So, for nearly the entire program engineers in a dozen or so companies charged the government and maybe did some work, nearly all of which was wasted because the government didn’t tell us what it was they wanted until a few weeks before the preliminary design review. The charts all of those companies submitted were pure fiction. By that point, I am certain everybody was praying the program would be cancelled as there was no way to meet the budget because the money to do so had long ago been wasted.
This is how government works.
Is any legal way that money to be paid by Rosestein the guy who appointed Mueller?
“Then they take that money and do not give it to the treasury but instead fund groups like ACORN, ANTIFA, etc.....What a scam.”.....
Nothing new there but remember, some of that money seems to “fall off their wagon” and into the coffers of those crooked bastards. How else do they go into office with a few bucks in their pockets and come our with millions?
What a “swamp” this country has allowed. Fire every one onf them a DEMAND term limits.
If that 7 million had been invested in the market for the same period, it would have earned another 1 or 2 million. Instead, it costs, not just the 7 million, but the money spent by anyone forced to protect themselves with lawyers. The real costs are at least double.
Mueller Probe Cost Almost $7 Million In Less Than 6 Months
Would the Mueller investigation cost more money or less if it wasn’t run by corrupt FBI agents?
Since they (Mueller and his gang) are criminals, would it not be cheaper to convict and incarcerate them?
Seven million dollars?
The Left got a bargain, look at all the chaos they have been able to inflict with a mere $7 million.
Good estimate of the total cost for the investigation will be right around $100 million.
ANYONE KNOW THE AMOUNT OF PEOPLE HE HAS WORKING FOR HIM? 1/2 OF THAT 7 MIL WENT TO THEIR PAYROLL.
Imagine all the hungry children that could have been fed with that money.
The Office of Special Counsel reeks to high heaven. What is the Attorney General doing? He needs to be fired.
