Special counsel Robert Mueller’s team investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election reported spending more than $25 million through Sep. 30, according to the latest Justice Department filing, including $8.5 million over the last six-month reporting period.

Last month, President Donald Trump, without citing any documentation, accused Mueller of “wasting more than $40,000,000” on an “illegal Joseph McCarthy style Witch Hunt” that has “shattered so many innocent lives.”

On Sunday, the president again complained about the cost of the Mueller probe, and also without documentation, claimed the investigation has cost more than $30 million, instead of $40 million.

The new numbers reported by the Department of Justice on Friday cover expenditures from April 2018 through September 2018, including compensation for prosecutors, rent, travel and transportation.
