    Trump Proposes Demolishing FBI Headquarters

    Heh. But not what you think.


    The latest development in the ongoing war between the White House and the FBI is that the Trump administration is now proposing to demolish the Hoover Building on Pennsylvania Ave. in Washington, D.C., that serves as FBI headquarters, and to replace it with a new building.

    ...

    Local media in Washington reported that the project could cost up to $2 billion, and that Maryland Senator Cardin and Congressman Steny Hoyer had been pushing to have the FBI relocated to a suburban office park. A report from the General Services Administration, which administers government real estate, to a Senate committee that oversees the topic proposes "a 'nationally-focused consolidation' that would move roles that do not need to be conducted in Washington to federally owned sites in Idaho, Alabama and West Virginia," the Baltimore Sun reported.

    The plan would ship about 20% of the FBI's current Washington-based positions — 2,306 of the bureau's roughly 10,606 Washington-based staff — to Idaho, Alabama, and West Virginia.

    The GSA statement said that "the current headquarters facility, the Hoover building, has significantly deteriorated over the past 45 years. Crumbling facades, aging infrastructure, physical, structural and security limitations in the degraded facility are all severely impeding the FBI's ability to meet its critical law enforcement and national security missions."

    I don't much believe this story but considering the shady history of the FBI and it's history of civil rights abuses it'd be just fine with me if they did demolish that building.

    Government agencies, law enforcement agencies especially, should be as diversified through the country as possible.

    D.C. headquarters campuses should house only those officials who can expect to report to Congress and the White House on a routine basis, and those they consider essential support staff.

    All others should be based elsewhere. If this project means federal jobs are going to be moved, especially created, in states like Idaho, Alabama and W.V., that's a good step forward.

    The FBI has offices all across the country already

    It's crazy that the party of "law and order" are now in open warfare against the FBI

    That's going to come back and bite them the arse.

    I totally agree. We need to decentralize the bureaucracy and bring them to other parts of the U.S. so they actually don't live in the D.C. bubble.

    How so?

    Do you know how important the FBI is when it comes to things like stopping terrorist attacks just as one example.

    It's the current administration that made the FBI "political" so they can try to divert away from all things Russia.

    It started with the lies surrounding Comey's being fired to obstruct justice. There was no "turmoil" in the agency (at least not before the firing!)
