Trump’s Budget Doesn’t Fund Mueller Probe Past September


Special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigations into Russian election interference and whether the Trump campaign colluded with the Kremlin will reportedly stop being funded after September.

Reuters, citing three U.S. officials familiar, reported Monday that the special counsel office’s funding was not addressed in the White House and Justice Department’s new budget requests.

According to Department of Justice regulations, Mueller is required to report to the attorney general the status of his investigation at the start of each fiscal year. It is during this time that he can provide budget requests.

Mueller reported spending about $9 million during the last fiscal year, according to Justice Department documents obtained by Reuters. It is unclear how much he has spent in the current fiscal year.
