Mueller to face an audit?

Washington TimesThe head of the main conservative caucus in the U.S. House wants to see special counsel Robert Mueller’s books.

In an interview that will air Sunday on C-SPAN, Rep. Mark Meadows, North Carolina Republican, said he will ask the Government Accountability Office to conduct an audit of Mr. Mueller’s team.

It’s not clear what an audit could learn, or what legal fights it might set up, as it would inevitably indicate the scope of Mr. Mueller’s investigation, something about which he has resisted tipping his hand to Congress and the White House.

I'm not sure what useful information this would reveal. Presumably it would show him paying staff a salary, renting office space? What else would a special counsel spend money on that would reveal the direction of his investigation?

Still, Congress has an undeniable right to supervise it and restrict his funding if they so choose. An audit would seem to be a first step in that direction.
