The Trump family and the Kushner family are facing a new round of political corruption charges following the announcement a $1.7 BILLION corporate giveaway.
A company known as Vornado Realty is reportedly on track to get an enormous building contract for the FBI’s new headquarters, valued at more than $1.7 billion. The big problem here is that Vornado Realty is closely associated with the President Donald Trump’s and Adviser Jared Kushner’s family business empires.
The so-called Vornado Realty company looks very suspicious. They are partial owners of several Trump and Kushner properties and now they are getting fast tracked for a huge federal project.
A company that owns buildings with Donald Trump and the family of Jared Kushner is a finalist for a $1.7 billion contract to build the FBI’s new headquarters.
Vornado Realty Trust is one of three finalists to build a replacement for the bureau’s current headquarters on Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington D.C., the massive J. Edgar Hoover Building, according to Garth Beall, manager of Renard Development. Renard is hoping the federal agency running the bidding process, the General Services Administration, will choose a Renard site in Greenbelt, Maryland, for the new headquarters.
Vornado is a partial owner with the Trump Organization in two buildings, one each in New York and San Francisco. It is also a major investor in 666 Fifth Ave., the flagship skyscraper of the Kushner Cos.
Officials in Washington D.C. are sounding the alarm over the apparent conflict of interest. One brave lawmaker called the controversy “a serious taint” on the whole situation.
A Democratic congressman from Virginia is questioning the ethics of having a company with ties to President Donald Trump among the competitors to build a proposed new headquarters for the FBI — a $2 billion project Maryland officials hope will be built in Prince George’s County.
Rep. Gerry Connolly of Northern Virginia, where officials also are vying for the building, said reports that Vornado Realty Trust is one of three finalists to build the headquarters suggest a conflict of interest. The New York-based firm currently owns other buildings with Trump and the family of Jared Kushner, the president’s son in law and adviser.
“It’s a prima facie case of a conflict of interest,” Connolly told The Baltimore Sun in an interview. “Both the Trump organization and the Kushner organization have ongoing, long-term business ties… that would put, in my view, a serious taint on the award of a contract [for] the juiciest real estate development opportunity in recent memory here in Washington.”
They’re all corrupt!
