    Better that (investigating each other) than finding new ways to waste taxpayer money.

    Taxpayers are footing the legal bill*for at least 10 Justice Department lawyers and paralegals to work on*lawsuits related to President Trump's private businesses.
    Neither the White House*nor the Justice Department will say how much it is costing taxpayers, but federal payroll records show the salaries of the government lawyers assigned to the cases range from about $133,000 to $185,000.

    Doing investigations is part of their job. The Congress has oversight responsibilities and the duty to police their own ranks. And Mueller's investigation is separate from the three Congressional committees.

    If the Trump administration would do its job, which it isn't, then there would be no need for Congress to investigate the administration.

    You might want to recall that Mueller was appointed by the current Department of Justice after Trump was inaugurated.

    I really hate lawyers.

    But she does have a point. I would want to hear the specific wording of the questions asked. Because it's entirely possible that he forwarded an email about someone else contacting someone who contacted someone, but at the same time he never had contact with any of those people.

    Kind of like the classic question "So, are you going to stop beating your wife"..... Or more specifically like a cop accusing you of conspiring to rob a store because you happened to know one of the parties and happened to know that he might have spoken with one of the other parties, but you weren't involved and didn't know what was talked about.

    Kushner is in serious trouble...

    http://www.cnn.com/2017/11/17/politi...act/index.html

    Excerpts

    Kushner testified he did not recall any campaign WikiLeaks contact

    White House senior adviser Jared Kushner told congressional Russia investigators that he did not communicate with WikiLeaks and did not recall anyone on the Trump campaign who had, a source with knowledge of his testimony told CNN.

    But Kushner did receive and forward an email from Donald Trump Jr. about contact Trump Jr. had with WikiLeaks, according to a new report this week and a letter from the Senate Judiciary Committee.
    ...

    In a statement Friday night, Kushner attorney Abbe Lowell said the committee had asked "a classic gotcha question.

    "Mr. Kushner was asked if he had contacts with Wikileaks, Guccifer or DC Leaks and said no. He also said he did not know of such contacts by the campaign. From all I have now seen, his statement was accurate then as it is now. In over 6 hours of voluntary testimony, Mr Kushner answered all questions put to him and demonstrated that there had been no collusion between the campaign and Russia."
