82 weeks and counting.
Still, nothing connecting Donald Trump to Russia.
Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s witch hunt has come at quite the price to the American taxpayer, though.
Guess how much?
From Free Beacon:
The special counsel investigation into the 2016 election has cost taxpayers over $25 million and counting.
Robert Mueller’s office released its latest expenditures spanning from April 1, 2018, through Sept. 30, 2018, finding the special counsel racked up over $8.4 million in five months.
The left won’t be so thrilled to learn that Mueller has been ordered to hand over documents.
Here’s the deal…
From Daily Wire:
In a new twist, a U.S. District Court judge has ordered special counsel Robert Mueller to hand over all secret documents related to the questioning of former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.
Flynn’s legal team claims the Federal Bureau of Investigation urged the retired United States Army lieutenant general not to bring a lawyer to an interview with agents at the White House in January 2017. Flynn has since pleaded guilty to one count of lying to prosecutors and is scheduled to be sentenced on Tuesday.
U.S. District Judge Emmet G. Sullivan on Wednesday ordered Mueller to turn over all documents and “memoranda” related to Flynn’s questioning by 3 p.m. Friday. Sullivan is the same judge who overturned a 2008 conviction of former Sen. Ted Stevens after government misconduct was revealed.
Before boarding Marine One en route to Air Force One and heading to France, President Trump took some questions from reporters – as he usually does.
One reporter asked 45 about acting Attorney General Matthew Whittaker.
Trump didn’t hold back, telling her how “stupid” the question was.

Trump has said repetedly that he could fire Mueller at any given time, but doesn’t want to. He wants to see the process through.
Why reporters are still asking about anything Mueller related is completely bogus.
Businessman Donald Trump was thinking about the idea of a Trump Tower in Russia in 2015, 2016-ish.
Naturally, some paired this deal (that was never made) to Trump working with the Russians to defeat Hillary Clinton.
Conservative rock star Mark Levin, lawyer and radio host, explains the legal consequences President Trump could be facing.
Hint: sorry liberals.
“People keep saying, ‘What are the legal implications for Trump?’ There are none. Zero. There’s no legal implication; there’s no legal jeopardy, period. Moreover, in all this so-called reporting and analysis by these phony experts, where did President Trump collude, coordinate, or conspire with the Russians during the election, to fix the result of the election? Where is this evidence? And since there’s not a scintilla of evidence, this should underscore the point that this entire investigation is bogus.”
“Shouldn’t [the media] be cheering over the fact that so far, all the leaks show that Trump did nothing? Shouldn’t they be celebrating that, that in our republic, the president that we chose is guilty of nothing? That he didn’t collaborate, he didn’t coordinate, he didn’t conspire with the Russians? But they’re not. They keep bringing in these phony experts, who are utterly predictable. ‘You know, uh, if I were Don Jr., I’d be worried about now’ — the country should be worried about now, about what’s taking place. The country should be worried.”
“How many more damn times do I have to explain that it is the position of the United States Department of Justice that you cannot indict a sitting president? He’s not in any kind of legal jeopardy.”
