DOJ Spent $9M Investigating Trump over Classified Docs Financial Disclosures Show How Much They Spent on Biden

The DOJ and special counsel Jack Smith spent a whopping $9 million of taxpayer dollars in just four months investigating President Donald Trump for his alleged mishandling of classified documents and a Jan 6-related case.

Many critics at the time figured the same would be nowhere near amount spent on Joe Biden.

It turns out they were right.

According to new financial disclosures, the DOJ spent just $1.2 million investigating President Joe Biden’s alleged mishandling of classified documents.

Smith spent approximately $5.5 million from November 18, 2022, to March 31, 2023, investigating Trump, and agencies within the DOJ contributed around $3.8 million.

With regard to the Biden documents case, just $615,962 was spent from January 12 to March 31, 2023, while other DOJ agencies contributed approximately $572,185.

For comparison, special counsel John Durham’s prone into the ‘Trump-Russia collusion,’ which took roughly two-and-a-half-years, cost around $7.6 million.

Trump blasted Smith over the investigation in a Truth social post:

“Deranged Jack Smith, the wacko prosecutor that Corrupt Joe Biden and his Thugs stuck on me during the political campaign in which Biden is losing ‘BIG’ (an absolute No, No!), just announced that he has spent over 9 million dollars, already, on this continuing Witch Hunt. Biden’s Special Prosecutor, by comparison, has spent almost nothing. Prosecutorial Misconduct for purposes of Election Interference!” Trump wrote.

Trump and his lawyers have maintained that Smith’s probe is just a political witch hunt, which is evident by the glaring difference in special counsel expenditures between the Trump and Biden probes.

“I will say that Jack Smith, I think, absolutely wants to rain hellfire down on this president and his supporters – not just people in his orbit, but also his supporters. And he’s going to stop at nothing,” Trump lawyer Jesse Binnall told Just the News on Thursday.

“This is not a good guy … Unfortunately, the people that he tends to work with are zealots.”

The Daily Wire noted:

“Hur was appointed to investigate Biden after several batches of classified documents were found at the Penn Biden Center in Washington, D.C., and in a garage in his home in Wilmington, Delaware.”

Not long after Trump was indicted last month on charges related to his handling of classified documents, legal analysts predicted that his team would attempt to push back the start date for the trial as long as possible.

However, it was not Trump’s team that requested the first delay; it was made by Smith.

U.S. District Judge Aileen Cannon set a court date of Aug. 14, but Smith wanted it pushed back to Dec. 11, The Epoch Times reported.

“The request asks for the trial to be delayed by four months because there is classified information involved. To handle this information, Trump’s lawyers need to get security clearances, and that process takes time,” the outlet noted.

“Interim security clearances are currently being processed and should be granted within 48 hours after Trump’s lawyers submit the required forms. However, obtaining the final clearance to access a few specific classified documents may take anywhere from 45 to 60 days,” the report continued.
