As part of Donald Trump's infrastructure plan, there is over $2 billion set aside for the building of a new, state-of-the-art headquarters for the FBI.
This brings the total amount of money the FBI has for a new building to over $3.3 billion.
washingtonexaminer.com reports: The Trump administration is moving ahead with a plan to revamp the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s headquarters.
A Department of Justice official told reporters Monday that included in the White House’s infrastructure plan, there is a line item of $2.175 billion for construction of a “modern and secure FBI building.”
That amount would be added to money the FBI had already allotted and is holding onto for the project, bringing the total to $3.3 billion.

Democrats Are Deliberately Thwarting Trump From Performing Basic Foreign Policy Functions!
Democrats in the U.S. Senate are refusing to confirm President Trump's nominee to be the ambassador to Germany.
From The Daily Caller:
It’s been five months since President Trump first nominated Richard Grenell to be the United States’ ambassador to Germany, and yet Grenell is still waiting for the Senate to confirm him so he can start his job.
Refusing to confirm Grenell not only impedes America’s foreign policy interests—Germany is one of America’s most important allies—but impedes historical progress as well: if confirmed, Grenell would be the highest-ranking openly gay diplomat in American history.
The absence of American diplomatic leadership in Berlin is painfully obvious in light of two recent developments, Grenell’s backers say.
The New York Times reported earlier this week that American and Russian spies tried to negotiate a deal last year for damaging information on President Trump that the Russians claimed to have, although they provided no evidence. The CIA’s Berlin station ran the secret negotiations, which according to the Times report extended into early this year — while Grenell’s nomination was sitting before the Senate.
The CIA station chief in Berlin typically reports to the American ambassador to Germany — but for that to happen, there has to actually be an American ambassador to Germany. As details of the reported operation surface months after the fact, America still has no ambassador in Germany, whose citizens are no fans of American clandestine operations in their country.
