    Decade long serch for new FBI building site collapes....

    And guess whos to blame?

    this thing has been a political s#%tshow for it's entire story. But now, after collapsing under it's own weight, it's suddenly Trumps fault ....... literally nothing they cannot blame on the guy. It's like the old coworker I had who believed that a prisoner in some jail had developed a cure for AIDS but the gibmint was suppressing it. No amount of reality can intrude on delusions that deep.

    A GSA spokesperson cited a funding crunch for the decision to cancel the headquarters search. Former president Barack Obama’s administration had sought $1.4 billion for the project this year, but lawmakers had only agreed to $523 million — leaving an $882 million funding gap.

    GSA demanded that the project, estimated to cost $2.5 billion, be fully funded by Congress before moving ahead.

    sounds like Congress is really to blame ........
    We’re tempted to suggest a conspiracy here — but it’s just liberals agreeing yet again that conservatives have hidden, evil motives, because modern liberals simply can’t conceive of any other reason to disagree with the liberal consensus.

    But always remember that making a sanctuary city/school/outhouse/swimming pool etc. kills the deal for that state.

    Some are blaming Frosh for Maryland not getting the building. I doubt that is the reason , but I hope it pisses off enough republicans to vote Frosh out of the attorney generals office, along with the two Mikes who believe they own Maryland.

    The new FBI building at 9th, & Penn. is too small it doesn't hold them all. The FBI is spread around downtown Washington. Too bad they don't build a new one at St. Elizabeths or Walter Reed.

    There really is no need for the FBI headquarters to be in the District or even in the area. West Virginia needs the funding more than DC, VA, or MD if they really want to be within driving distance of the Hill. Funding is a no-brainer. The Federal Government owns more empty, excess office buildings than most countries. If they really want funding, sell off 10% and you'd have the prettiest campus you want for FBI's to eat their lunches. But absolutely, do not allow Nancy Pelosi's husband to make more millions by brokering the deal.

    Moving the FBI away from Washington would entail moving a thousand or more people with it.
    You would have to retrain for those who wouldn't leave.

    Of course you are right they could move to Wyoming if they wanted but still you would lose a lot of people who are already trained.
