Special counsel details $3.2 million in spending on Russian Federation case

Not Released

Last week Michael Flynn, Trump's former national security adviser, pleaded guilty to a single count of making false statements to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

The story, which broke at Final Call press time December 4, drew more fire for an embattled president and besieged White House facing legal scrutiny.

As of Tuesday morning, neither the White House or Trump had commented on the report.

"The latest news supports our view that Mr. Mueller is too conflicted to investigate the FBI and should step down in favor of someone more credible", the newspaper said. Mueller also disclosed that he secured a guilty plea from George Papadopoulos, who was a junior foreign-policy adviser to the Trump campaign, for lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation about contacts with Russian operatives.

But that report, based on a single anonymous source, was called into question nearly immediately by a Fox News report quoting another anonymous source near Mueller, who said there was no subpoena from Mueller's office to Deutsche Bank.

And the Journal said the time has come for Mueller to step down.

As Mueller's investigation unfolds, Trump has gone on the offensive.

Mr Trump and Deutsche Bank have not always been on good terms. Two have pleaded guilty.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller has released a statement of the costs of investigating Russian meddling for the period from May 17 until the end of September, part of a commitment to release reports of his outlays every six months. They certainly have the power to do so, should Mueller deem it necessary: The order establishing the investigation authorizes him to pursue "any links and/or coordination between the Russian government and individuals associated with the campaign of President Donald Trump", as well as "any matters that arose or may arise directly from the investigation". "Just more Fake News covering another Comey lie!"

"I think that's a violation", Mr. Trump told the paper. "We have confirmed this with the bank and other sources". Those trades are being investigated in multiple probes in the U.S. and Europe.

Fox News' John Roberts was the first call the initial reporting into question in a tweet issued shortly before Sekulow's statement.

Another $733,969 was spent on equipment, but the report does not provide details.
