Giuliani Falsely Claims Mueller Was Paid $30 Million For Russia Probe, Sean Hannity Fails To Correct The Lie




Donald Trump’s personal defense attorney Rudy Giuliani told Fox News’ Sean Hannity on Monday night that decorated war hero and former FBI director, Robert Mueller, was paid a $30 million salary to oversee the Justice Department’s Russia probe.

“The guy got paid upwards of somewhere around $30 million, but he couldn’t make the key decision,” the former New York City Mayor falsely claimed. “His hands were shaking.”

According to Politico and Money magazine, Mueller earned a salary of $161,900.



Mueller himself took a major pay cut upon accepting the federal position in 2017. He reportedly left the law firm WilmerHale where he made more than $3 million in less than a year as a partner.

Hannity did not correct Giuliani’s outrageous lie.


According to a PolitiFact analysis published Tuesday, the overall cost of the Russia probe is on track to reach roughly $34 million.
