White House counselor Kellyanne Conway wondered Friday how much more money should be spent on investigations into Russian election interference and possible collusion between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin.
“What kind of money are we going to spend by the taxpayers having these infinite investigations?” Conway asked on “Fox and Friends.” “There are many of them. If we’re going to do that, fine I suppose, but we really need to spend our time also telling people what’s being done here for them and that’s not being covered at all.”
The remarks from Conway come as special counsel Robert Mueller has expanded his investigative team to more than 25 individuals, according to Mueller spokesman Peter Carr. Carr didn’t tell The Daily Caller exactly how many members are part of Mueller’s team, Carr said this figure includes “attorneys, administrative staff and FBI agents.”
Mueller has hired 16 attorneys, 13 of which have been publically identified, Carr would not tell TheDC who the other three attorneys are. The Daily Caller previously reported that at least seven lawyers hired by Mueller – a registered Republican – are Democratic donors.
