The FBI is expanding.
The bureau is reportedly planning to build a new headquarters which will be twice the size of the Pentagon.
This raises a few obvious questions. Why do they need such a massive building? Are they increasing the size of their ranks to fill it? Should the American people be concerned about this?
In recent years, millions of Americans have come to see the FBI as a politicized agency which does the bidding of the Democrat party.
From American Greatness:
Planned New FBI HQ Is Twice the Size of the Pentagon
The federal government is proceeding with plans to build a new FBI headquarters complex twice the size of the Pentagon building.
Riveted into the colossal new project are woke regulations to ensure that the FBI center will comply with diversity, equity, LGBTQ+, and climate change political goals.
The plan, unveiled last September, has received little attention. For years the FBI has sought to vacate its present headquarters, a brutalist concrete bunker on stilts and occupying two city blocks between the White House and the Capitol.
Plans for the new FBI headquarters specify that it will be built on one of three sites in suburban Virginia and Maryland. Those sites are large parcels of 58, 61, and 80 acres.
That means, at minimum, the new FBI headquarters complex would be twice the size of the Pentagon building. Covering about 29 acres plus a five-acre courtyard, the Pentagon, until recently, was the largest office building on earth.
The Kremlin in Moscow —a walled fortress containing the administrative offices of the Russian central government, the official presidential residence, massive auditoriums, an arsenal, a museum, four palaces, three cathedrals and several churches—is just over 66 acres in area.
This news is more than a little creepy.
The Pentagon is the world’s largest office building. This will be bigger. And they’ll be watching you. https://t.co/2y3dO631cJ

The Republicans in Congress may be able to stop this project. American Greatness explains how:
The House can exercise power of the purse to stop this semi-stealth FBI expansion and force the bureau to cooperate fully with Congress. How?
First, allow no funds to purchase, lease, or develop land not presently owned by the federal government. That would eliminate the two proposed sites in Maryland.
Second, allow no funds to design, develop, or construct federal property bound to diversity, equity, and inclusion agendas or any programs that promote or enforce cultural Marxism with tax dollars.
Third, conduct lengthy, open hearings and a broad public debate about why the FBI needs a headquarters superplex that’s twice the size, or more, of the Pentagon.
Finally, don’t appropriate or authorize a penny until the FBI cooperates fully with Congress to identify and hold individuals accountable for political abuses of power and criminal activity within the bureau. It’s as simple as that.
The American people deserve transparency on this. The bureau functions with their tax dollars.
