Since the inception of the Mueller Trump/Russia Collusion Investigation, new reports from the Justice Department show how Mueller and his team have spent a whopping $17 million dollars, on the back of the American taxpayer. The Office of Special Counsel released a statement of expenditures last week revealing that over $6.7 million was spent during the first 4 1/2 months of the investigation (May 2017 through mid September of 2017). Mueller and his team then spent another $10 million within the subsequent six months. However, Mueller and his team have not released the expenditures for the past 2 1/2 months of their investigation.
Politico reported on Thursday, that the Mueller Special Council is financed from the United States Treasury Department, and has no ties to the annual budget. Therefore, Mueller can spend unlimited resources, financed by the Treasury, who gets the money for Mueller from the hardworking American taxpayers throughout the country.
The figures were released by the Special Counsel’s Office, because it is mandated to do so. The breakdown of the costs reported by Mueller’s team include…
- Salaries and benefits for employees in the special counsel’s office: $874,069
- Cost of Justice Department employees temporarily assigned to the special counsel’s office: $1.9 million
- Travel expenses: $532,340
- Information technology services: $226,730
- Supplies and materials: $29,694
Originally, the Russia investigation was launched in an effort to determine the extent of Russian interference in the 2016 Presidential election in the United States, and to find out if members of the Trump campaign colluded with Russia. However, over time the Mueller Special Counsel, the FBI, CIA, NSA, Congress, and Watchdog Groups have been unable to provide any viable evidence that ANYONE colluded with Russia. That is except the Clinton campaign, While it appears that the Obama Administration looks like they tried to use the intelligence agencies to spy on, and bring down the Trump campaign.
In fact, reports have surfaced from multiple sources that when the 2016 Presidential election was in full swing, the Obama administration was attempting to sway not only the U.S. Presidential election towards Hillary Clinton, but foreign elections as well. The National Sentinel reported that the Obama administration was attempting to influence the outcome of Israel’s elections. Also, The Washington Times reported:
The State Department paid hundreds of thousands of dollars in taxpayers grants to an Israeli group that used the money to build a campaign to oust Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in last year’s Israeli parliamentary elections, a congressional investigation concluded Tuesday.
Some $350,000 was sent to OneVoice, ostensibly to support the group’s efforts to back Israeli-Palestinian peace settlement negotiations. But OneVoice used the money to build a voter database, train activists and hire a political consulting firm with ties to President Obama’s campaign — all of which set the stage for an anti-Netanyahu campaign, the Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations said in a bipartisan staff report.
In one stunning finding, the subcommittee said OneVoice even told the State Department’s top diplomat in Jerusalem of its plans in an email, but the official, Consul General Michael Ratney, claims never to have seen them.
He said he regularly deleted emails with large attachments — a striking violation of open-records laws for a department already reeling from former Secretary Hillary Clinton’s handling of official government records.
Regardless of the Obama Administrations meddling in Israeli elections, Netanyahu survived the Administrations attempts to unseat him, and continues to rise in popularity today. However, the irony can not be discounted. Especially, since Israel is America’s closest ally and friend, and how can the Obama Administration call outside meddling dastardly, when the Obama Administration was doing just that?
Then, the New York Times reported on Thursday, how former President Obama met with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in order to ask him NOT TO COOPERATE WITH THE INCOMING TRUMP ADMINISTRATION! The New York Times wrote…
Mr. Rhodes describes the reaction of foreign leaders. Prime Minister Shinzo Abe of Japan apologized for breaching protocol by meeting with Mr. Trump at Trump Tower in Manhattan after the election. Mr. Obama urged Prime Minister Justin Trudeau of Canada to take on a more vocal role defending the values they shared.
New York Times
However, you would think since the New York Times was outraged that the Trump Administration was being accused in meddling with a foreign government to affect the United States government, they would be outraged. But, instead, they wrote a how disappointing it was that Hillary lost to Donald Trump, and showed not an ounce of outrage that the Obama Administration actively colluded with a foreign government to undermine the United States government.
Regardless of where the real evidence of collusion with a foreign government to undermine the United States government, the Mueller team continues to go after their one and only target…The Trump Administration. They ignore real collusion. They refuse to investigate the servers at the DNC that the investigation is supposedly all about! They refuse to investigate Hillary Clinton, the Clinton Foundation, James Clapper, John Brennan, James Comey, or any of the top ranking officials who took part in undermining the United States government. Regardless of their blatant ties to Russia!
Instead, since they have not been able to find any evidence of collusion, Mueller and his team spend millions of American taxpayer dollars to go after the President for obstruction of justice. Obstruction, because they say that the President tried to obstruct an investigation of a crime that they now admit never existed.
In the end, it is the American Taxpayers who are paying the price, simply because Donald J. Trump won the 2016 presidential election. ‘We the People’ are paying for it in the pocketbook, because President Trump is not a Progressive, a Socialist, a Communist, but a realist. A man who has finally been returning our country to a path of financial prosperity. He has ushered in a new era of not only incredibly low unemployment, but the lowest unemployment rate for the supposed Democrat Party’s constituency.. Blacks, Hispanics, and Women. He has brought North Korea to the negotiating table, with indications of denuclearization. He has put Iran and Syria on notice. He has put the American Worker FIRST! He has put our nations security at the forefront of his agenda, while helping to make the world a safer place. Ultimately, Mueller and his hit squad can try to make the case that President Trump is a problem for America, but President Trump is showing how the Mueller Special Council and the previous Obama Administration are the true culprits of corruption in America, and a quite expensive band of criminals at that for the American taxpayer.
