    Trump, Pence and their entire criminal administration is why we have the second amendment. It is the fail safe for when our government stops following the constitution.

    That's exactly how Trump ran his businesses – like a Mafia. Pay homage to the "Don" and you will be well taken care of.

    In what world is it wrong to award contracts to donors? Your only argument is if they are somehow not qualified or competitive. There will always be dissent among some varied individual's interests.

    $130k to Stormy
    $130 Million in Rusky corruption money funneled through the NRA
    $400 Million tax payer dollars used to 'convince' zelensky to put out some propaganda on Biden
    $400 Million in dirty Border Wall contracts (which we all saw coming)
    What is their obsession with the numbers 130 and 400??

    Chicago and Mayor Daley, both parties do it. Politicians go in as middle class and come out multi-millionaires thats just the way it is. Trump is just playing the game. But his treatment of the Kurds, and Ukraine have weakened our security. He must go. Victory to the Resistance!!

    How are we going to pay for it? Nigh half a billion for a few dozens miles of 'wall'? Need to begin asking where this money is coming from. Everyone poos their wee pants over how to pay for food/housing assistance, medicaid, or anything remotely aimed at helping a human being. Where is the green gonna come from Trumpists? How are we going to pay for this bit of corruption?

    I've been expecting exactly this for over a year, now. Trump, as genius as he considers himself, will think he can engineer a "perfect" kickback scheme, now. I hope he gets caught. I'm dying to see how Republican Congressmen react to it and what Barr has done about it. Of course, just what Chris has mentioned in this report should be enough for an investigation, but Barr will slow-walk or secretly squash it — if he hasn't already.

    Mexico was forced to sell cheap to Kushner the rights for exploiting some oil wells, Kushner is reselling the contract with a big profit . Mexico is waiting for the orange wacko be kicked of the WH to annul the deal on the grounds of extortion.

    This is OUTRAGEOUS, who is going to do something about all these CORRUPTION, I cannot believe these CROOKS are getting away with this. This is money laundering by any other name. the federal government is paying this CROOKED firm to build the wall and the CROOKED firm is donating 400 MILLION to the GOP, is nothing but MONEY LAUNDERING.

    What a "surprise"…

    Last week, when it came out that kushner was going to "oversee" the fabled wall, I predicted that these things will happen – or have happened. And to top it off, I'll say that down the road we'll learn about kickbacks to trump from this guy and others. To them, the presidency is nothing but a five-finger-discount opportunity.

    Trump, spending other people's money (American taxpayers as it turns out this time) on substandard garbage over the objection of the contracting professionals in the military. Sounds like just another Tuesday in America at this point.

    Can the damage Donnie has done to the military, democratic institutions, norms and the rule of law ever be undone?

    I'm beginning to doubt…

    How about that contract awarded to the company in Montana which only has 2 employees who were awarded the contract to rebuild Puerto Rico's electrical system after the hurricane strike? A 2 man company, awarded a job that would actually take hundreds of manpower to rebuild the entire country's infrastructure? AND GUESS WHAT? PR still doesn't have their electrical infrastructure back up and running to this day! I wonder why????
    It's because that company took the money, bailed on doing the work and you KNOW Trump got his hands on some of that money through other connections which were discovered ties from the company to Trump.
    NOW Trump is just doing it again. Trump just took some of the money he STOLE from the American tax payers, through that bogus "national emergency fund" scam; and applied it to only a small area of the border wall, then he's now taking the rest of the money and pulling the same scam he did with the PR electrical company scam and siphoning money from that contract as well!!
    All these Republicans are doing is robing the American public BLIND!!! They are the biggest thieves in American history!!!
    Remember, while the Republicans are ripping off the the American tax payers, the American tax payers in the middle class are the ones who are suffering for it by being stuck with the bill and debt!!!

    Paying 400,000,000 for 31 miles of steel wall is absolutely ridiculous . The cost of the steel and the labour would be less than half. If a fraction of that money was spent on the betterment of the countries from which these ppl come from, they would not come in the first place. The wall can be conquered many ways, as simply as a knotted rope.

    Sick of it all… the republican party is now akin to the Nazis… I know i know but seriously the USA is in a precarious spot especially those americans who aren't wealthy enough to afford the massive inflation and depression coming our way. It will take a Democratic administration to once again dig us out of right wing conservative political messes. And the fox (murdoch et al) will spin it so that all the 40% stupid or evil americans will forget that it was what it is now…. not looking good….

    This stinks to high heaven! Fisher Industries is a private, family-held company with reported annual revenues in the $100M range. Fisher Industries/Fisher Sand and Gravel is an aggregate producer (sand, gravel, etc.). They also fabricate equipment for the aggregate and mining industries. They have no expertise in or experience with barrier construction. I predict massive cost overruns should FS&G maintain this contract.

    Moreover, dig into this company's history and you'll find that it's paid $1,812,620 in tax, environmental, employment, and workplace safety or health violations since 2000 (t.ly/L9Y68). Family members who own the company also have very checkered pasts, including:
    • Child pornography conviction and 10-year prison sentence in 2005 (David Fisher).
    • Tax evasion and fraud conviction, and 37-month prison sentence in 2011 (Michael Fisher). Current company president, Tommy Fisher, was implicated in, but not tried for, the crimes.

    The President of the United States has no business interjecting himself in the Army Corps of Engineers' contracting process.

    Same company was awarded a contract in Texas, where the US Army Corps said no fence was actually needed, due to the rough terrain…. but Fisher got the contract anyway.And its NOT a wall, it's steel fence, same as before.  Trump was looking to build a concrete wall, so he could pay off his buddies, but Congress saw thru that BS.  Not an inch of WALL has been authorized or built under Trump….  The fence is more than adequate, but Trump is lying (What a shock) when he says he's building a wall.
