“As Inquiries Compound, Justice System Pours Resources Into Scrutinizing Trump”

NYT on the resources being devoted to investigating the former president, including around $25 million that the office of Special Counsel Jack Smith is on track to spend this year: “These efforts, taken as a whole, do not appear to be siphoning resources that would otherwise be used to combat crime or undertake other investigations. But the agencies are paying what one official called a ‘Trump tax’ — forcing leaders to expend disproportionate time and energy on the former president, and defending themselves against his unfounded claims that they are persecuting him at the expense of public safety.”
