Cost of Mueller Investigation for 4 months Equals Cost of one Mar-a-lago golf trip !

Robert Mueller’s investigation into whether the Trump campaign conspired with the Kremlin to try to sway the 2016 presidential election has cost taxpayers $3.2m over its first four months.

That is roughly the same estimated cost as a single presidential golfing trip to Mar-a-Lago.

The office of the special counsel released on Tuesday its details of expenditures from May to the end of September. The biggest amount for the team of lawyers and investigators who are looking into the presidential campaign is personnel costs: $1.7m.

It will be interesting and infuriating to observe the repub's ugly spin on this fact.

1. Idea: Every 4 months, Trump should reduce his planned number of golfing

trips by 1. That way, he can pay for his own investigation.

5. ...and 1/5th

It is also a piddling 1/5th of the $17-Million in the taxpayer-funded slush fund Congress uses to pay off their sexual abuse claims. The screaming about which you hear <Crickets...>
