Crony Capitalism

It’s a win-win for Trump cronies.

It looks like the reward James Comey gets for throwing the election to Trump is a new headquarters for the FBI, something he has been lobbying for strongly.

And the developers who get the two billion dollar contract to build the new headquarters are friends of Trump. The same developers will also get control of the old FBI headquarters property, something that the Washington Post calls “a once-in-a-generation development opportunity in downtown Washington”.

As I always say, just follow the money.

    Take a good look at any state legislature, and notice how many congresspeople and governors are real estate developers and roadbuilders or have close familial ties to people who are.

    Capital cronyism in a Trump administration? I’m just shocked!
