Amount of Taxpayer Dollars WASTED On Mueller Report Will Have Conservative Jaws Dropping

Might as well have shredded it. Result would’ve been the same.

Take a guess.

You’d be wrong.

The final amount of taxpayer dollars absolutely wasted on Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe resides somewhere between $31 million and $32 million.

BREAKING: The final taxpayer tab for Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s (dud) investigation: $31,773,751, according to latest Statement of Expenditures report released by his office

Fox Business has more:

According to biannual reports released by the special counsel’s office, Mueller and his team spent $12.3 million in direct spending between his appointment on May 17, 2017 and Sept. 30, 2018. The office also said it incurred $12.9 million in “indirect” Justice Department spending, a category it described as “neither legally required” for disclosure, nor reported in filings by previous special counsels.

Mueller’s office said the indirect expenses did not amount to additional taxpayer expenditures since these resources would have been devoted to other cases, such as personnel at the FBI, if there had been no special counsel investigation.

On average, the office spent roughly $8.4 million per each six-month period. If the final statement — which has still not been released — remains on par with previous costs, total spending from the investigation is expected to reach $34 million in both direct and indirect spending.

Even hosts at radically far-left MSNBC didn’t think the former Special Counsel did anything to benefit the Democrat point of view.

And then President Trump weighed in:

I would like to thank the Democrats for holding this morning’s hearing. Now, after 3 hours, Robert Mueller has to subject himself to #ShiftySchiff – an Embarrassment to our Country!

Save conservative media!

First Day Of Public Impeachment Hearings Turns Up The Pressure On Moderate Democrats

Published

on

Much attention is now being cast toward moderate Democrats in the House, especially in swing districts, with the first day of public hearings in the impeachment inquiry into President Trump now under wraps. The day finished up without any major revelations coming to light, highlighting the weakness of the Democrats’ key witnesses in the case against the president. Many of these witnesses are relying on second-hand information, having not interacted even once with the president. Here’s more from Fox News: At one point in Wednesday’s hearing, Rep. Mike Quigley, D-Ill., even appeared to embrace hearsay testimony, claiming that “hearsay can be much better evidence than direct” and that “countless people have been convicted on hearsay because the courts have routinely allowed and created, needed exceptions to hearsay.” It was unclear which of those limited exceptions would apply to Wednesday’s testimony — and whether Quigley’s argument would persuade critical swing-vote Democrats. The House is now comprised of 431 members, meaning Democrats need 217 yeas to impeach Trump. There are currently 233 Democrats, so Democrats can only lose 16 of their own and still impeach the president. 31 House Democrats represent more moderate districts that Trump carried in 2016. Freshman Rep. Elissa Slotkin, D-Mich. — who flipped a GOP district in 2018 that Trump won by 7 points in 2016 — told Fox News that she was tentatively weighing all the evidence. “My constituents expect me to make an objective decision,” Slotkin said as the hearings concluded, “not one based on an hour of testimony.” https://twitter.com/RealSaavedra/status/1194710194166497281 There’s also a report floating around that is suggesting that if House Democrats impeach the president, Senate Republicans are going to hold a lengthy trial that will “scramble” the 2020 Democratic presidential primary by making it mandatory for several of the contenders to stay put in…

Donald Trump Jr. Shares His Thoughts On First Day Of Impeachment Hearings: ‘I’ve Never Seen Anything More Ridiculous’

Published

on

Donald Trump Jr. was not at all impressed with the first day of public hearings in the impeachment inquiry against his dad, President Donald Trump, noting that he’s “never seen anything more ridiculous.” The first day of hearings wrapped up without a single drop of new major revelations. Speaking on “Hannity,” Trump Jr. noted that while nothing major was revealed, the whole day showcased the weakness of the case Democrats have against his father. Here’s more from Fox News: “You see exactly what America voted against in 2016, career government bureaucrats doing their thing,” the executive vice president of the Trump Organization said. “Everything was hearsay, ‘I heard it from a friend, who heard it from a friend, how heard it from a friend.’ I’m saying, ‘this is a joke.’” At one point in Wednesday’s hearing, Rep. Mike Quigley, D-Ill., even appeared to embrace hearsay testimony, claiming that “hearsay can be much better evidence than direct” and that “countless people have been convicted on hearsay because the courts have routinely allowed and created, needed exceptions to hearsay.” It was unclear which of those limited exceptions would apply to Wednesday’s testimony — and whether Quigley’s argument would persuade critical swing-vote Democrats. Trump commented on Quigley’s statements telling Sean Hannity, “Then I heard the Democrats, and this is when you realize how bad or, frankly, nonexistent their case is, ‘well hearsay is often times much better than regular evidence.’ I’m saying, ‘did that guy say that with a straight face?’” Trump then went on to compare Quigley’s comments to “the telephone game we learned about in kindergarten.” “So it’s better to have heard it from a friend who heard it from a friend who heard it from a friend than to have heard it with your own ears? I mean that’s the…
