Individual-1's Golf Trips Cost Taxpayers 3 Times More Than Mueller Probe

Trump’s Golf Trips Cost Taxpayers 3 Times More Than Mueller Probe


Trump has spent 83 million taxpayer dollars on golf, while the Mueller investigation has only cost $25 million.

Reuters reported on the latest DOJ data on the cost of the Mueller probe, ” The U.S. Justice Department has spent a total of $25.2 million on Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into whether President Donald Trump’s campaign colluded with Russia from its start in May 2017 through September 2018, according to the latest public data released on Friday.”

As CNBC reported, Mueller has turned a profit from the investigation, “Mueller may have also paid for his own investigation. That’s because, as part of his plea deal with the special counsel, Manafort agreed to forfeit real estate and cash estimated to be worth between $42 million and $46 million.”

According to Trump Golf Count, the president’s golf trips to his private clubs have cost taxpayers $83 million. This means that the Mueller investigation has turned an estimated profit of at least $17 million, while Trump has spent nearly $100 million of taxpayer money on trips to play golf at his clubs. - PoliticusUSA

1. Misleading title because Mueller in the long run is making money.

3. And Mueller can make a bigger profit if a deal can include ...

“reimbursement” of golf costs when the Cretin is indicted and cops a plea.

4. republicans are squandering our tax money on luxuries for a "billionaire"

republicans lie when they call themselves "conservatives." They are throwing our tax dollars away on their freaking ignoble Draft-dodger-in-Chief in order to provide him with luxuries he clearly does not need or deserve.

Screw the slaphappy republicans throwing our hard-earned money to republican "billionaires."

6. Mueller/SDNY also got $2 mil from Cohen

Gates won't be nearly as big as Manafort but he may well surpass Cohen in restitution.

When they get done with Trump and his kids, it will probably be 10 fold or more times Manafort.

The Mueller investigation is probably the best investment in terms of % return Trump will ever make as President.
