The FBI And Taxpayer Money For Victims Program

FBI Director Robert S. Mueller: forget the victims

The FBI and DOJ receive many millions in taxpayer money for what is known as the "Victims Assistance Program" Yet, so often, we read stories regarding the Federal Bureau of Investigation abusing victims of crime and informants.

In light of the FBI's penchant for squandering and stealing taxpayer money - as in the case of their computer system fiascos, where a few hundred million dollars in taxpayer money mysteriously went missing and was unaccounted for via receipts labeled "miscellaneous" - where is the money in the "Victims Assistance Program" truly going. Why is Congress giving the FBI millions in taxpayer money, when victims are not being helped.
