Robert Mueller III, the special counsel leading the Russia investigation, on Tuesday publicly filed his team’s first expenditure report. The $6.7 million in expenses includes $3.2 million attributable directly to the prosecutors and staff working for Mueller, and another $3.5 million from U.S. Justice Department components that have supported the special counsel.
“Although neither legally required nor reported in prior Special Counsels’ Statements of Expenditures, DOJ components that support the SCO were asked to track expenditures attributable to the investigations,” the special counsel’s office said in a report. “The expenditures for this period totaled $3,546,000, which approximates expenditures the components would have incurred for the investigations irrespective of the existence of the SCO.”
