A Justice Department report issued Tuesday on expenses associated with the special counsel’s probe includes a breakdown of direct and reimbursed expenses, such as salaries to detailed DOJ employees who would have been paid regardless of being detailed to Mr. Mueller’s team.

While the expenses associated with the special counsel’s personal team total $3.2 million, the report notes that an additional $3.5 million was spent during the course of the investigation on DOJ components that support the investigation. That figure “approximates expenditures the components would have incurred for the investigations irrespective of the existence of the SCO,” the report states.

The expenses detailed in the first report include a breakdown of costs between May 17 and Sept. 30.

    So, exactly WHY IS a SELF AFFIRMED Co-Conspirator to TREASON on muellers payroll?

    Is he, as yet, an UNNAMED CO-CONSPIRATOR- TO THE SAME conspiracy TO UNDERMINE THE United States Government?

    Is THAT not enough “Probable Cause” for Arrest and Confinement by the US MILITARY while being investigated?

    Actions of Spies and Saboteurs is clearly defined in the Geneva Conventions.

    Wonder how much is mueller getting paid and I bet he will get a mil or two for doing such an “outstanding/excellent” job to date. Hey, the holidays are coming and he really needs the money. He is in very need unlike the citizens who just have to do without.
