At the end of the day, taxpayers are always stuck footing the bill.
And Democrats have wasted millions of taxpayer dollars to carry out their sham impeachment witch hunt into President Donald Trump.
According to research done by the Heritage Foundation, House Democrats drained $3.06 million on the entire impeachment process against President Donald Trump.
“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.”
But wait, it get’s worse.
That does not take into account the bill for the latest round of the process in the U.S. Senate.
Add up lawyers’ fees and the salaries of staff whose duties have been consumed by impeachment proceedings, and taxpayers are footing a hefty bill.
As the Daily Signal reports, the price tag could be even higher:
The total likely is a low estimate because it does not factor in overtime hours for U.S. Capitol Police when House hearings ran well into the late evening. The total also doesn’t include the cost of executive branch expenses, travel costs for witnesses, or supplies and materials.
As support for impeachment appears to be dropping, Democrats are going to have to prove to voters that they’re doing the right thing, and they need to do it before public opinion turns even further away, tanking Democrats’ chances in 2020.
