Mueller Hires MORE Prosecutors To Russia Probe… Means More Of YOUR Taxpayer Dollars Being Spent

After more than a year of investigating potential Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, Special Counsel Robert Mueller is concluding his investigation. Conservatives would love to finally be able to say that, but, unfortunately, it is not true.

In fact, the opposite is true. Mueller is reportedly looking to ramp up his operation.

The Hill reports the team which has spent more than $7.7 million from May 2017 to March 2018, is set to spend more taxpayer dollars to continue the investigation.

According to the report, Mueller will be utilizing the work of more Justice Department prosecutors to help his current team of 17 prosecutors in further process growing amounts of case files.

Mueller, who has been repeatedly criticized by President Trump could be looking to step away from the investigation to maintain its integrity. “Officials added that this could be a sign that Mueller is prepared to step away from the probe and leave it in the hands of a larger team of prosecutors,” the report theorizes.

Bloomberg similarly reports that Mueller could be looking to incorporate more people from the Justice Department to hand over some of the workloads.

“As Mueller pursues his probe, he’s making more use of career prosecutors from the offices of U.S. attorneys and from Justice Department headquarters, as well as FBI agents — a sign that he may be laying the groundwork to hand off parts of his investigation eventually, several current and former U.S. officials said,” per Bloomberg.

From the Hill:

The special counsel has already issued 20 indictments and secured five guilty pleas from individuals.

One of the most notable defendants is former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, whom Mueller hit with a superseding indictment last month.

Manafort and his longtime aide Konstantin Kilimnik were accused of trying to coach two witnesses or prevent them from testifying.

A federal judge revoked Manafort’s bail and sent him to jail in June.

He is charged with multiple financial crimes, including obstruction of justice and conspiracy to obstruct justice.

The allegations came from Mueller’s investigation. Manafort has pleaded not guilty to all charges.

His trial is set to begin later this month.

National Review adds that after the investigation passed the one year mark in May, the president and conservatives called for the probe to end because it has found no evidence of collusion and has gone on too long.

President Trump often refers to the investigation as a “Witch Hunt”:
