State Dept. Was Granted $120 Million to Fight Russian Meddling. It Has Spent $0.
By GARDINER HARRIS -  MARCH 4, 2018
https://www.nytimes.com/2018/03/04/world/europe/state-department-russia-global-engagement-center.html

WASHINGTON — As Russia’s virtual war against the United States continues unabated with the midterm elections approaching,
the State Department has yet to spend any of the $120 million it has been allocated since late 2016 to counter foreign efforts to meddle in elections or sow distrust in democracy.

As a result, not one of the 23 analysts working in the department’s Global Engagement Center
— which has been tasked with countering Moscow’s disinformation campaign —
speaks Russian, and a department hiring freeze has hindered efforts to recruit the computer experts needed to track the Russian efforts.

The delay is just one symptom of the largely passive response to the Russian interference by President Trump,
who has made little if any public effort to rally the nation to confront Moscow and defend democratic institutions.

More broadly, the funding lag reflects a deep lack of confidence by Secretary of State Rex W. Tillerson in his department’s ability to execute
its historically wide-ranging mission and spend its money wisely.
...

Mr. Tillerson is focusing his energies instead on drastically shrinking the department,
leaving a significant part of its budget unused and hundreds of important decisions unmade.

If it weren’t so scary and destructive, it would be hilarious.

I think the OP meant it in a general sense, not a strictly legal sense. Geesh have some imagination.
