Watchdog Group Sues to Learn How Much $ Spent on Mueller Probe
OCTOBER 05, 2017
On Thursday, conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch says it sued the Department of Justice to find out how much money is being spent on Special Counsel Robert Mueller‘s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election. Specifically, they want 1) the budget Mueller or his staff submitted, covering the day he was appointed up to July 10; 2) a copy of all guidance memoranda and communications to review the special counsel’s “Statement of Expenditures”; and 3) a copy of documents “scoping, regulating, or governing” Mueller’s office. This Freedom of Information Action lawsuit comes after Judicial Watch filed a FOIA request, they said.
