It’s been reported that the Mueller intifada against Trump cost about $35M. Yet he knew that there was no collusion by December 2017 and should have wrapped up the investigation then per its scope. Shouldn’t the GAO or the DOJ go after him for all reimbursements after that point? It’s a classic case of a consultant going over budget or beyond scope. Rod Rosenstein should also be asked about this. He was supposed to be monitoring the investigation.
There frequently is a stated goal versus the real goal of an activity. If Mueller’s purpose was not to investigate Trump, but rather to delay investigation into the illegal activities of the intelligence agencies in 2015-6, then the longer the better. The US has become an unusual banana republic where the losers of an election persecute the winners. George Papadopoulos said on the Byron York podcast that one of the people arresting him said, “This is what happens to supporters of Trump.” Even NTers should be disturbed by this.
