The special counsel’s investigation has not come close to spending $50 million, according to a Justice Department report released in December. According to the report, the most recent available, the investigation had cost just over $25 million as of September 2018. The Justice Department said in the report that it would have spent $13 million on the investigation regardless of Mueller being appointed. False claims regarding spending on the investigation began circulating after President Donald Trump’s former personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, testified Wednesday before the House Oversight and Reform Committee.
