[Ed. – We’re orgaznizing an office pool on how many taxpayer dollars Mueller has wasted.]
Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., will seek a financial audit of special counsel Robert Muller’s investigation into whether President Trump colluded with the Russians ahead of the 2016 election.
Meadows, who sits on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, said in an interview for C-SPAN’s Newsmakers airing Sunday that the audit is needed to ensure the Mueller team is properly spending the millions of dollars allocated so far to the Russia collusion probe. The audit would also provide information about the scope of the investigation, which the Mueller team has resisted providing to Congress.
Meadows said he would ask next week to have the Government Accountability Office conduct the audit, although it’s not clear if Mueller would be compelled to turn over the information.
“There will be a request from us to audit the financial resources of this investigation,” Meadows said. “It is certainly within the parameters. It is appropriated funding from Congress.”
