Just last week, Robert Mueller’s findings from his two-year investigation into alleged collusion with Russia and the Trump 2016 campaign were released to U.S. Attorney General William Barr.
And after the media spent nearly two years desperately awaiting ANYTHING to come from the long-awaited Mueller probe… ZERO evidence was found.
However, documents released from the Department of Justice showed just how much money was spent on the probe… that again, found NOTHING.
According to the report, estimated expenses amounted to nearly $25 MILLION!
That’s right… and witch hunt that took place just to smear the president of the United States cost more than most Americans will ever see in their lifetime.
Here are ten things as reported by The Daily Caller that cost LESS than the Mueller investigation…
The cost of each mansion or luxury home will differ due to location, size and style. However, you can most likely snag a very nice place for close to or under $10 million, according to Business Insider. Even for people who have money, like celebrities, wind up spending as much or less than what the Mueller report will cost. For example, Jeff Bezos bought a $19 million mansion in Washington, D.C., in 2015.
5 Million Happy Meals
The $25 million from the Mueller probe could have paid for 7.5 million Chicken McNuggets Happy Meals and 8.9 million Cheeseburger Happy Meals.
A Private Jet
Similarly to mansions, costs for a private jet varies due to the model and age of the aircraft. Yet, the Bombardier Learjet 75, one of the most expensive jets on the market, still comes in at only $13.8 million, which is nowhere near the cost of Mueller's report.
A Massive Ordinance Air Blast (MO.A.B.)
When Trump ordered the use of a M.O.A.B in 2017 on an ISIS target in Afghanistan, the cost of the bomb circulated around social media at $314 million. Having never been confirmed, the number kept changing and sometimes dropped down to $16 million. However, the Air Force said that it cost $170,000 a unit, according to Business Insider. That means the Mueller report could have funded close to 150 MOAB units.
625 Child Adoptions In The United States
According to American Adoptions, the average total cost for an adoption through an agency in 2012-2013 was $39,966. With that being said, the Mueller report could have funded over 625 adoptions.
Seen as the pinnacle of wealth, yachts can be extremely expensive to buy and then maintain. However, the Mueller report could have afforded yachts under 65 meters long with their price ranging from $20 million–$9 million.
An Expensive Car
We all have the car that we have dreamt of buying one day. According to Beautiful Life Magazine, the most expensive car is a 2017 Rolls Royce Sweptails, which sits at $13 million in 2019. Even more so, the Mueller report costed more than five $4.5 million Lamborghini Veneno's combined.
Million School Lunches
For many families, school lunches every day can become incredibly expensive. Over the two years, the investigation could have funded close to 8 million school lunches.
A Celebrity Wedding
The Mueller report does not cost as much as any of the royal weddings, but it would be able to fund the majority of celebrity weddings. Chelsea Clinton and Marc Mezvinsky's ($5 million), Paul McCartney and Heather Mills' ($3 million) and Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's ($2.8 million) wedding could all be covered under the umbrella of Mueller's expenses.
