Trump more involved in stopping FBI HQ move than previously known, emails show

President Donald Trump was more instrumental than previously known in scrapping plans to move the FBI headquarters out of Washington to the DC suburbs, according to newly released internal government emails.
The decision could have financial benefits for the President, whose own hotel is located a block away, critics say.


More CHEATING THE TAXPAYERS by Doofus Drumph.

Yet Trey "Benghazi" Gowdy - Chair of the House Oversight Committee
refuses to call any sort of investigation.
After he salivated over Hillary's emails for over two years, he is not in the least interested in considering emails that demonstrate Drumph's COMPLICITY.
Great!
Doofus Drumph robs the people blind and they cheer him on.

Emails show Trump intervened personally to stop FBI headquarters from moving out of DC, Democrats say

Administration emails show that President Donald Trump intervened personally to keep FBI headquarters in downtown Washington rather than relocate it to the suburbs as had long been planned, congressional Democrats said Thursday.

The letter from Democratic lawmakers on the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform says Trump's direct involvement presents a brazen conflict of interest. Trump owns a downtown hotel across the street from FBI headquarters that could face competition if the FBI's current location is opened to private redevelopment, which could include another hotel. Before running for office, Trump expressed interest in redeveloping the property himself.

Trump "was directly involved with the decision to abandon the long-term relocation plan and instead move ahead with the more expensive proposal to construct a new building on the same site, and thereby prevent Trump Hotel competitors from acquiring the land," wrote Democratic Reps. Elijah Cummings of Maryland; Gerry Connolly of Virginia; Dina Titus of Nevada; Peter DeFazio of Oregon; and Mike Quigley of Illinois.


Hmmmmm
If the Dims take the House, "Crooked Donald" could be in some trouble.

this kind of shit just makes me laugh. yep it appears the spending cuts are on their way. 5% across the board. then I suspect deeper cuts to specific programs shortly thereafter.

FBI agents from out of town stay at the Trump hotel in D.C.? A quick search shows rates of about $600 a night. If this is happening, you do have a scoop.

An elected official is caught using his influence to protect his financial interests at taxpayers's expense.
And a taxpayer calls it a "who cares" story.
Drumph has got you folks right where he wants you.
