Mueller investigation cost $6.7 million within first five months
Posted by Staff


Special counsel Robert S. Mueller III's investigation of possible coordination between the Trump campaign and Russia to influence the 2016 election cost the government about $6.7 million in Mueller's first four and a half months in office, according to a report released by the Justice Department on Tuesday.

The price tag is likely to rile Republicans who have been critical of Mueller's team and wary of a lengthy and costly investigation, though independent counsels have in the past spent tens of millions of dollars on lengthy probes. Facebook iconFacebook Fark iconFark Furl iconFurl
