Trump Closely Involved In Killing FBI’s Move

Out Of Washington, Emails Show

 

Opening up the FBI’s Pennsylvania Avenue location for redevelopment would have created competition for Trump International Hotel.

 

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump personally intervened to stop the FBI from moving its headquarters in Washington, D.C., to the Maryland or Virginia suburbs, emails made public Thursday reveal.

 

The decision that the bureau will not move will help the president’s bottom line by reducing competition for his flagship hotel property located in the Old Post Office building across the street from the current FBI building.

 

The emails between officials at the General Services Administration, which oversees government-owned properties, and the FBI show that the decision to stop the long-running plan to move FBI headquarters to the suburbs and sell the sprawling, brutalist J. Edgar Hoover Building to developers for a mixed-use development came directly from the president.

 

In the emails, which were made public by House Democrats, officials discuss “what was decided in the meeting with POTUS,” “the President’s instructions,” and “direction from WH” following a January 2018 meeting about the plan.

 

This revelation provides further problems for GSA Administrator Emily Murphy. At a congressional oversight hearing in April, Rep. Mike Quigley (D-Ill.) asked Murphy if the president was involved in the discussions to change the decade-old plan to relocate the FBI headquarters. Murphy said the decision came solely from the FBI. That answer was “incomplete and may have left the misleading impression that she had no discussions with White House officials in the decision-making,” an inspector general report into Murphy’s comments revealed in August.

 Paul and Ryan - I'm not sure of your point. Do you consider it inappropriate for the President to offer an opinion as to whether or not and where to move a major federal agency?

 


 


If it were a Normal US Presidency - NO

 

If we had a President who was at least Semi-honest - NO

 

Trump Promised the American People he was completely divested from his Business Interests - This Proves He's Not

 

This is a Clear - Conflict of Interest

 

A President can not use the office of the Presidency and the Power of the US Government to Stifle Competition that effects his Business Interests

 

His Washington DC Hotel is right across the Street from the FBI Building that for over 2 years has been scheduled to be demolished and a new Building Built in Virginia

 

The Old Building in Washington DC - even if it is Renovated will not be Large Enough to accommodate all the Washington DC FBI Staff - 2000 Employees will still be required to be housed in a different location

 

Here is the REAL DEAL - Trump Has Already Demonstrated - Corrupt Intent - Read the Article

 

1. General Services Administrator Emily Murphy was asked in a Congressional Hearing This Year if Trump or anyone in his Administration was involved in Changing the Plans for the FBI Building

 

Under Oath - She Said No

 

2. She was wasked if she ever met with Trump Personally to discuss the FBI Building

 

Under Oath - She Said No

 

Here is Emily Murphy sitting in the Whitehouse Oval Office with Trump - Kelly & Rosenstein - Chris Wray & Mick Mulvaney in January 2018

 

Guess What this meeting took place less than a week before the New Change of Plans on the FBI Building

 

Guess What Else - GSA officials refused to tell the inspector general what president Trump said during that meeting — on the orders of White House lawyers.

Then there are the Emails that show Trump Administration Officials Discussing What Trump Told Then To do Regarding the FBI Building

 

Other emails from the GSA reference “a demolition/new construction per the president’s instructions” and “what POTUS directed everyone to do.”

 

Just one day after the meeting with Trump in the Oval Office, GSA’s acting chief of staff, Brennan Hart, sent an email to Joseph Lai, a special assistant to the President, to emphasize the decision had been made not to relocate the FBI headquarters.

 

Days later, GSA’s acting general counsel, Jack St. John, suggested the need to get “something in writing” from the FBI and Justice Department that solidified what had been agreed upon in the meeting with Trump.

 

On Monday, the inspector general released a report that contests the GSA’s official explanation for the change of plans — and suggests that the agency might have misled Congress about the White House’s involvement in the matter.

 

Specifically, the report claims that the GSA has misrepresented the costs of rebuilding the headquarters in downtown D.C., suggesting that such an approach would be cheaper than building a suburban campus, when it would actually cost more.

 

More explosively, the report finds that Emily Murphy, the GSA’s administrator, met with White House Chief of Staff John Kelly and budget director Mick Mulvaney — and then, President Trump, himself — on January 24, days before the new plan was announced.

 

In a series of emails in the days that followed, the GSA confirmed that the relocation plan was dead, evidently at the president’s direction, despite the fact that Trump’s preferred approach would cost taxpayers more money.

 

A top GSA official, Brennan Hart, wrote in a Jan 28 email that the FBI project “is a demolition/new construction per the president’s instructions.”

One of Trump's arguments for keeping the FBI in DC is it will cost less money. As usual, that's another big LIE from the Liar in Chief. The numbers I saw are as follows;

 

Move to the DC suburbs: $3.5 Billion

 

Keep the FBI in DC: $8 billion

 

Even a Trump Cult member should be able to understand the above.

Old FBI Building on Pennsylvania Ave was going to be torn down and a new Private multi-use building including a Luxury Hotel was to be built

 

WHY - the old FBI Building - the Current FBI Building has steel netting erected on all sides to keep pieces of the building from falling on cars & pedestrians below

 

A contractor was hired several years ago to try and maintain the building until a new building could be built in the Virginia countryside -

 

Millions of dollars were spent buying the land designing the new building and maintaining the old building until the new building was completed
