UPDATE: Trump Special Counsel Investigations Cost Over $9 Million in First Five Months

Here’s Trump’s response to the spending:

In all, Smith’s two investigations directly cost $5,428,579 in funding from the Justice Department’s permanent indefinite funding for independent counsel probes as prescribed by congressionally authorized statute between Nov. 18, 2022, and March 31, 2023. This included more than $2.6 million for personnel compensation and benefits, according to the disclosure, and approximately $1.8 million for contractual services like litigation and IT support. 

Another $3.8 million was spent on FBI and U.S. Marshal Service personnel connected to the two Smith probes for investigative matters and protective details. While not required to disclose such expenses in the reports, they were included in Friday’s statements.
