GOP Lawmaker Proposes Amendment To Defund Mueller Probe After 180 Days





A Republican lawmaker from Florida has introduced an amendment to the government funding bill that would automatically defund special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation of President Trump’s ties to Russia 180 days after the bill becomes law.

The amendment from Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-Fla.) would also prevent Mueller from probing “matters occurring before June 2015,” which is the month Trump announced his presidential bid.

The amendment was submitted as part of the upcoming spending package the lower chamber is expected to weigh after the congressional recess, reports The Hill.
