Report: Democrats Drained Millions Of Taxpayer Dollars On Impeachment Probe

At the end of the day, taxpayers always foot the bill.

According to research done by the Heritage Foundation, House Democrats drained $3.06 million on the entire impeachment process against President Donald Trump. And that’s not taking into account the bill for the latest round of the process in the Senate.

“The $3.06 million price tag for taxpayers of the formal impeachment inquiry so far includes the salaries of 106 congressional employees who largely didn’t attend to normal duties from September through December,” the Daily Signal reports. “It also includes the estimated hourly fees of six lawyers of record for witnesses who appeared during hearings, whether behind closed doors or public.”

However, the final amount is likely much higher, once it’s all said and done.

Some of the things not taken into account are overtime hours for the U.S. Capitol Police, who kept the peace at several impeachment hearings that went long into the evening. Additionally, the $3.06 million doesn’t include things like like “executive branch expenses, travel costs for witnesses, or supplies and materials,” per the Daily Signal.

So not only did Democrats push a politically-unpopular impeachment proceeding, but they spent serious taxpayer money to do so.

It’s possibly the perfect storm for President Donald Trump securing an overwhelming victory in the upcoming November election.

    And Pelosi is not giving up even now. She seemed to be under the influence of booze or drugs.Does she have a reputation for either?
    Maybe she ‘s just behaving like the spoiled child she was as the 6th of 6 kids and finally a daughter!!

    The minute his nomination was announced in 2016, there was an announcement and efforts were started to keep President Trump from ever being sworn in. If their defeat had been accepted graciously and they had tried to work across the aisle, I wonder what could have been accomplished. On the flip side President Trump has not wanted to work with Congress, but who can blame him. Would you want to work with those that have exhibited as much hatred as the democrats.

    This political agenda is far worse than trump wanting to investigate corruption. We all know the democrats are afraid of losing an election and will do everything to regain the White House.

    The difference between the Democrats and the Republicans is that the Dems will smile and shuffle and pretend to care and spout out what they are going to “give you”
    While the Republicans, especially Donald Trump will tell it like it is and show you how to lift yourself up “God helps those who help themselves” and so does President Trump
