Russian Federation probe cost $7 million over 5 months, DOJ says

Special counsel Robert Mueller has subpoenaed President Donald Trump's financial dealings with Deutsche Bank, likely including information on a large loan borrowed from Germany's biggest financial institution, according to reports.

Special counsel Robert Mueller spent $3.2 million over that time.

Mueller's spending included $3.2 million in direct and reimbursed expenditures - including more than $1.7 million for personnel, $733,000 for equipment, $362,000 for rent and utilities, $223,000 for travel and $157,000 for contract services, such as technology services and transcripts, according to the report.

Mueller was appointed in May to lead the investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election. Another $220,000 helped the special counsel's office employees relocate to work with Mueller. But there is appropriate oversight by the department. Some of the costs in the budget are for expenses the Justice Department would have already spent on other teams, such as for employees on detail to Mueller from other DOJ divisions.

Kallstrom said that he hopes the Department of Justice is investigating the FBI for what appears to be its leniency on Clinton and its crackdown on Trump.

Mueller, a former Federal Bureau of Investigation director, appears to be moving at a faster pace than previous investigators. Trump has repeatedly called the investigation a "witch hunt" and has acknowledged that he fired Comey at least partly due to the probe. The president's financial records could potentially show whether Trump owes or has received money from suspects connected to Russian Federation.

Flynn, who left the White House in February after acknowledging that he'd given an incomplete account to Vice President Mike Pence about his contacts in Russia, pleaded guilty Friday to lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation about reaching out to Russian officials during the campaign in exchange for leniency from Mueller.

Beyond the $3.2 million being spent directly by Mueller's team, an additional $3.5 million was spent by other entities in the DOJ that are involved in investigations supporting Mueller's probe.
