Jordan wants FBI HQ out of D.C.

House Judiciary Chairman and Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan is concerned about the politicization and weaponization of the FBI —and he believes the agency should move its headquarters out of D.C.

Jordan fired off a letter Tuesday to House Appropriations Chairwoman Kay Granger (R-TX) suggesting that the bureau’s concentration in the nation’s capital isn’t helping matters. He said, “The centralization of FBI operations in the National Capitol Region has led to duplication of activity best left to the respective field offices, contributed to reduced autonomy in local field offices, and allowed improper political influence to taint law enforcement investigations and activity.”

From The Daily Wire:

Jordan went on to lay out possible language for his suggested provision.

“None of the funds made available in this Act may be used to build a new FBI headquarters,” the chairman wrote. “In addition, the FBI is directed to submit an operational plan within 90 days to move the FBI Headquarters out of the National Capital Region.”

He added, “The operational plan should also consider the existing resources and infrastructure available at the FBI’s Redstone Arsenal Campus in Huntsville, AL.”

The FBI’s current headquarters, the J. Edgar Hoover Building, started being built in Washington, D.C., during the 1960s and was completed in the 1970s.
