Kellyanne Conway: Russia probe wasting ‘tens of millions’ of taxpayer dollars

Kellyanne Conway said Monday morning the federal government is beginning to waste “tens of millions” of taxpayer dollars on the investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

“[Trump has] made very clear that we’ve had months and months and months of investigations,” the White House counselor said in an interview on Fox News, “on top of the FBI, several House and Senate committees investigating the same thing. You’ve got people even that haven’t always been sympathetic toward President Trump openly questioning where will this lead us.”

“We’re starting to waste tens of millions of dollars in taxpayer money on this endeavor, and if there is something there, let’s hear about it.”

The investigation into ties between Trump campaign associates and Russian officials began nearly a year ago, and since then, the House and Senate Intelligence Committees have also launched their own probes into Russian interference in the election.

The Justice Department appointed former FBI Director Robert Mueller to serve as special counsel in the probe last month.

Despite the multiple investigations taking place, there hasn’t been any evidence showing Trump officials colluded with Russia.
