The DOJ is hiding Mueller’s budget from the American people. The Special Counsel has SEVENTEEN left-wing hack lawyers digging into Trump and his associates with virtually no oversight. Why? Why is the DOJ protecting Mueller and his massive team of liberal hack lawyers?
Imagine the outrageous cost to the tax payers. Fitton has even described Mueller’s team as his own Justice Department.
Conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch filed a FOIA lawsuit Thursday against the DOJ concerning the budget and administrative records of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.
Via Judicial Watch:
