- According to RealClear Investigations, Robert Mueller paid more than $732,000 for outside contractors during the Russian investigation, leading to speculation he paid Christopher Steele, who produced the infamous “Russia collusion dossier for the Clinton campaign.”
- The report found that some people “suspect the dossier creators may have been involved in Mueller’s operation – and even had a hand in his final report – because the special counsel sent his team to London to meet with Steele within a few months of taking over the Russia collusion investigation in 2017.”
- Though it’s not uncommon for special prosecutors to pay for outside services during investigations, it’s alleged that Mueller kept quiet on these matters.
- Per the report: “While it’s not unusual for special government offices to outsource for services such as computer support, Mueller also hired contractors to compile ‘investigative reports’ and other ‘information.’”
- The Steele dossier was funded by the Hillary Clinton campaign and the DNC.
- A watchdog group has asked for Mueller’s records and communications between his team and contractors to be released.
