If you know anything about the political left’s obsession with Donald Trump, it’s that they’ll pretty much think of anything to ruin him. Thankfully, another case against Trump has proven to fall completely on its face.
Don’t get too excited. This isn’t one he’s been indicted for.
However, the Department of Justice did just exonerate him of any wrongdoing in charges that he somehow influenced the FBI in its decision not to move their national headquarters.
To add a little background, the FBI has been flirting with the idea of moving its headquarters out of the famed J. Edgar Hoover Building in downtown Washington, DC, for the better part of 20 years.
In 2014, talk began to get serious, with plans being made to potentially sell off the current headquarters and build a new building elsewhere, likely in the suburbs of the DC area. It would be an ‘exchange procurement.”
However, when looking into the plan, the General Services Administration (GSA) realized that it wasn’t all that cost-effective. It would cost far more to build a new site than the current building would sell for, and the feds would be left holding the bill.
And so, the plan was scrapped for a new one, in which the current building would be demolished and another one built in its place.
Naturally, Trump haters saw this as another opportunity to try and ruin him. And so they accused him and his White House of influencing the plans to keep the FBI headquarters where it is.
According to a conspiracy theorist’s 2018 letter to the GSA, “He was directly involved with the decision to abandon the long-term relocation plan and instead move ahead (with the alternate plan).”
Well, they claimed that Trump and his “financial interests with the Trump Hotel” would be affected somehow, undoubtedly for Trump’s gain.
Naturally, the Oversight and Review Division of the DOJ Office of the Inspector General launched an investigation into Trump.
Four years later, they just announced that no evidence of such conspiracies could ever be found. Hell, even FBI Director Christopher Wray backed the fact that Trump never had anything to do with the plans. He simply approved them, as he was president at the time.
Another one bites the dust…
