Justice Department Refuses Even to Release Mueller’s Budget Request
JANUARY 23, 2018
Don’t worry about how much tax money special counsel Robert Mueller wants for his investigation into allegations of collusion between President Donald Trump’s campaign and Russian interests during the 2016 election.
It’s a secret.
That, at least, is the position of the Department of Justice (DOJ), which turned down a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request by the government accountability nonprofit Judicial Watch. Federal lawyers identified seven documents related to the organization’s request for records related to the budget proposal submitted by Mueller’s office.
