Dem calls on GSA administrator to testify about Trump’s role in FBI HQ decision

Emily MurphyIllinois Democratic Rep. Mike Quigley called on Thursday for General Services Administrator Emily Murphy to testify again about President Donald Trump’s involvement in stopping the relocation of the FBI headquarters after a watchdog report said she “misled” Congress.

Quigley said on CNN’s “The Situation Room” that Murphy was dishonest with him when she failed to acknowledge Trump’s role in the decision to keep the FBI near the Trump Hotel in Washington — a move that would prevent the sale of the property to a potential commercial competitor.

“Last April, I asked the GSA administrator under oath whether the President or anyone at the White House was involved in the discussions on this decision about the FBI building,” Quigley said. “She said no. The inspector general said that she misled us. I suppose that’s a DC euphemism for a lie. So I’d like her to come back before my subcommittee and answer that question accurately.”
