Mueller has spent $3.2M on Russian Federation investigation

The Department of Justice released a report Tuesday morning detailing the cost of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into the 2016 presidential election.

The combined $6.7 million spent by Mueller's office and other offices supporting his investigation only covers the special counsel's investigation, not the various congressional investigations of Russia's meddling in the election. That represents new money coming from an indefinite appropriation for independent counsels, which the Justice Department determined could be used to fund Mueller's work.

Mueller's probe also caused other Justice Department components to spend about $3.5 million on work attributable to the special counsel probe, according to the report.
