Durham Probe Cost Roughly $1.5 Million During First Six Months as Special Counsel

Press Release:

    Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton mentioned in The Washington Times:

  • John Durham spent roughly $1.5 million of taxpayer funds during his first six months as special counsel probing the origin of the FBI's investigation into Trump-Russia collusion in the 2016 presidential election, The Washington Times has learned.
  • The amount spent by Mr. Durham is a relatively small amount by Washington standards and less than a quarter of the amount that special counsel Robert S. Mueller spent in the first six months of his probe of links between Mr. Trump and Russian election meddling.
  • For conservatives who are already disappointed by Mr. Durham's lack of results after two years on the job, the price tag only confirms suspicions that his investigation is a sham.
  • Tom Fitton, president of Judicial Watch, a conservative watchdog group, said the costs suggest Mr. Durham is not working to expose corruption by Obama-era officials.
  • "The budget demonstrates what I think observers have already concluded: the investigation is low energy, and he's disinterested in getting to the bottom of the worst government corruption scandal in government history," he said. "Those expenditures are the resting state of an office."
