U.S. special counsel Robert Mueller’s team investigating suspected Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. election spent $4.5 million between October last year and March 2018, the Department of Justice said on Thursday.

In addition, other Justice Department “components” spent $5.476 million on activities supporting the investigation, the department said in a published report. Mueller’s office is also looking into possible links between President Donald Trump’s election campaign and Russia.
