Russia Probe Less Costly Than trumps Mar-a -Lago Trips

I understand every time Trump visits one of his resorts (which is almost always), he charges the Secret Service market rates. Therefore, we have a President who is not only spending travel money like water, he's profiting off his frequent trips. 

 

Where's our resident Obama Hater who complained non-stop about President Obama's travel expenses for years? Will we ever see him criticize his hero in the White House?

And yet it goes on and on with no repercussions. There seems to be no way to STOP The Donald from spending this kind of money, yet still filling his pockets with money with his dealings with Foreign Dignitaries/ Countries. Again the Republican Party just turn their heads in the other direction. Plus if and when his family go with him, the price tag goes UP.

Russia Probe Less Costly Than trumps Mar-a -Lago Trips

Trump’s spent far more going to Mar-a-Lago alone than the Mueller probe has cost

 

President Trump’s frustration with the ongoing investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election and any coordination with his campaign was expressed in dollar terms Friday morning.

 

Donald J. Trump
 
A.P. has just reported that the Russian Hoax Investigation has now cost our government over $17 million, and going up fast. No Collusion, except by the Democrats!

Trump is referring to an Associated Press report citing data recently submitted to the Justice Department by special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s team. Through the end of March, the price tag for Mueller’s efforts has been about $16.7 million. From October to March, the probe — which the Associated Press did not refer to as “the Russia Hoax Investigation” — cost about $1.7 million each month.

 

In the grand scheme of government spending, $16.7 million is … not a lot. The federal government is expected to spend about $4.1 trillion in fiscal 2018. To put it into more tangible terms, spending $16.7 million of $4.1 trillion is like making $50,000 a year and spending 20 cents.

 

We can also put this cost into more concrete spending terms.

 

Shortly after Trump took office, there was a report from Politico estimating that his trips to his private club in Florida ran upward of $3 million a pop. It was later determined that this number was almost certainly too high, given that it was based on a Government Accountability Office tally for a trip taken by President Barack Obama that included a stop in Chicago. The conservative group Judicial Watch, which calculated similar figures for Obama’s presidency, told the AP that it figured each trip to Mar-a-Lago cost about $1 million, including only Air Force One travel and Secret Service protection.

 

Guess what. Trump has been to Mar-a-Lago 17 times, for a grand total of $17 million in flight and protection costs.
