Trump approved extra $129M to help House investigate Hillary. Now Pelosi has it.

Back in late August, Donald—living in his ego-inflated bubble--kept insisting that there would be a “red wave” and listened to pundits who told him that not only would the Democrats not take the House, but the GOP was likely to gain seats. That was the selling point for Congress to get their staff funding. The extra staff would be critical for conducting hearings and investigations, which would be “handy for investigating Hillary Clinton’s emails.”

Trump approved the extra $129 million for staff.

DOH!

Donald Trump Is Handing House Democrats a Loaded Gun

When Democrats assume control of the House on January 3rd, they will have $129 million more to spend on staff than their predecessors in the 115th Congress did—money they can use to hire more personnel to, among other things, investigate the Trump administration.

and don't forget the Mueller investigations are actually generating revenue, taking in more in assets from convicted felons than the investigations are costing.

The William Hurt character would have run intellectual rings around Donnie. The Kathleen Turner character would have him dead and buried before he got off the escalator.

Pelosi's probably getting thousands of resumes of people who'd like to Make America Great Again by taking down this corrupt administration

that the article provides. I see lots of numbers, but they don't seem to add up to what this writer claims.
