How many medical bills could be paid with $30,000,000?

How many hungry people could be fed with $30,000,000?

How many vaccines could be paid for with $30,000,000?

How many girl scout cookies could be bought for $30,000,000?

How many police officers could be sensitivity trained for $30,000,000?

How many serious wounded vets could be treated with $30,000,000 of therapy?

$30,000,000 is the amount spent so far on the Mueller Investigations. Does the return warrant the investment of taxpayer money? If not, should the Democrats pick up the tab? Let's say just Bill and Hil, they can afford the bill.

Given Manafort’s forfeitures, Mueller has 16 million to go before it’s a wash.....

thanks to the probe, Manafort agreed to forfeit real estate and cash estimated to be worth between $42 million and $46 million. So the investigation will actually NET a profit and if Manafort is found to be lying could forfeit more.

So tell us what the government can do with an extra 16 million it wouldn't have had? Imagine how much more if any Trump and Co associates are found guilty.

Prosecutors generally have a habit of generating far more (in fines and forfeitures) than they spend getting that booty.

It is what we wanted. When we, as a nation, chose Trump and Clinton as our presidential candidates we GUARANTEED that we would be electing a presidency plagued by congressional and criminal investigations. We knew it going in. We had plenty of candidates without that baggage but forget them! Let’s go the worse possible way!

So spend that money, it’s what we wanted.

You create a thread about 30 million in alleged cost but have no problem with Trump's policies putting our deficit over $1,000,000,000,000 in 2019 despite it being a good economy, and you didn't even get the 30 million right.

I think the investigation into Trump is hogwash meant to appease butt hurt sore losers of the 2016 election. However 30 million to the government is the equivalent to the loose change you or I can find under our couch cushions. At the same time even if the Muller investigation wasn't going on that money wouldn't be spent on any of the things you listed.

No, it is to find out how a bunch of partisan creeps (trump and his goons) colluded with Russia (a foreign nation in case you don't know) to influence the election.....In years past this would amount to treason...But you trump lovers seem okay with that

Nothing more than a loony leftist conspiracy by butt hurt sore losers of the 2016 election.

No it wouldn't. Treason is clearly defined in the Constitution. The loony lib-tard conspiracy theory of Trump colluding with the Russians so he can win the election is not treason.


Article 3 Section 3-

Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court.

About **** that has nothing to do with the loony lib-tard conspiracy theory of Trump Russia collusion.

.Colluding with Russia is not treason?

Loony lib tard conspiracies are not treason. Nor is another country helping a political candidate defined as treason anywhere in Article 3 section 3 of the Constitution.

...Yeah you trump lovers are real patriots....What a joke
Says the man buying into loony lib-tard conspiracies about the president because he is butt hurt Clinton didn't win. You must of been one of those Trufffers claiming Bush masterminded 911 seeing how you like believing in anti-republican president conspiracy theories.

Aw, look at all the false equivalence!

How much has it cost for Individual 1 to play golf and go on vacation all the time?

See how easy that is?

Oh please. If I had a nickle for every time some loony leftist said Trump is going to do down for this or that and Trump didn't go down. Then I would have me am 80 inch QLed 4k tv, a new house, brand new car and all sorts of other ****.

Starr spent 40,000,000.00 on the Clinton BJ perjury trap.

Finding out if Russia or some mafia has leverage over Trump is worth far more than knowing that Bill had sex, so...

What happened to OP? He started the conversation and seems to have left. Is it because he failed to do his homework beforehand? Trump does that a lot too.


* J/K, Trump’s never done any homework.

Show me the $ for $ recovery and collection. Manafort will pay a nickel to dime on the per dollar award. About 8% greater than the usual Federal judgment collection.
It wasn’t an “award”, it’s called a forfeiture. Every bit of what was taken is kept by the government.

Surprise. Effective law enforcement is judged by its return to society. When laws are ineffectively enforced, we have a habit as a nation, make the illegal legal and tax it.

Levying fines is not collecting fines. Per Example, multiple executions by gov'ts under RICO statutes have brought back less than 4% of face value, often costing gov't maintenance costs in the face of due process,
