(New York Daily News)   Trump/Kushner business partner is seeking a $2 billion government contract to build the new FBI headquarters. Don't worry, I'm sure the bidding will be on the up and up, and there will be no conflicts of interest   ( nydailynews.com) divider line

From being boy toy to Demi Moore, then married to Mila Kunis, and now in a partnership being a billion dollar building contractor- is there anything Ashton Kushner can't do?

I hope the next Democrat runs on a "I am going to seize their assets" platform. Not just Trump or his family, but the friends who have benefited as well.

Trump still has business partners?  That's a surprise.  I thought he's screwed over almost everyone he's ever done business with.

Ambivalence: Trump still has business partners?  That's a surprise.  I thought he's screwed over almost everyone he's ever done business with.


His business partners are probably involved with soliciting sex from 14-year-olds, like Trump used to be and probably still is...

If it is built before scheduled and for less money, I don't care if the builder and everyone in the Trump family pockets a few bucks.

It's government work. And that's not Trump's number either that's the FBI, Congress, and Obama's estimation. What's crazy is that it's still expected to save money as the FBI has tons of leased offices around the DC area that cost a fortune every month.

Shouldn't we fix the disarray and distrust in leadership at the FBI before building them a new headquarters?

The Apple Spaceship cost $5B. Construction is expensive, particularly right now, and very large powered / interconnected objects are not cheap.

Kleptocracy is a government with corrupt leaders (kleptocrats) that use their power to exploit the people and natural resources of their own territory in order to extend their personal wealth and political power. Typically this system involves embezzlement of funds at the expense of the wider population.

The 'are we a Democracy or are we a Republic?' question was solved a long time ago. The answer was neither.

What if it is built as you state because it is not up to code and people die because of it?

What if they take half the money spent as graft? What percent of graft are you okay with? Would you feel the same if the Kennedy family was pocketing the money?
 
2017-06-12 03:04:59 PM  
Apparently "swamp" was the code word for the money in the US Treasury. Sweet, unused money just lying around, waiting for whoever wants it to take it.

Can they at least not name this building after J. Edgar Hoover?

CSB: My dad's company does Federal government building and construction contracts, which make up about 85% of their business. About 6 weeks ago, the government stopped work on several projects, citing needs to review plans and bids. Now that they're out of non-government jobs, my dad and the rest of the company are all laid off while they wait for permission to go ahead.

The sad part is that my dad, his boss, and most of the other employees all voted for Trump. I told them last year that Trump would take all their contracts and either not pay or underpay them or give them to his friends, and no one believed me. Now, while I want to be smug about leopards eating faces, I can't be because the leopards are eating my dad's face.

If it were the Clintons doing this "before scheduled" with the exact same parameters, you'd have shouted yourself hoarse while blowing your outrage wad before shiatposting and collapsing onto your keyboard in a doughy heap, off to dreamland to fantasize about the various ways you'd just love to bend over to become biblically familiar with the liar in chief's own personal mini-cheeto, you disingenuous shill.
