Dept Of Defense Reveals The Pentagon Caused $27.7 Billion to ‘Expire’ As Trump Seeks $5.7 Billion In Border Wall Funding
1-9-19, * -- According to a recent DOD Inspector General report the Defense Dept has relinquished over $27 billion to the U.S. Treasury since 2013. The “expired funds” were returned because the Pentagon failed to spend it “within the legal time frames.” According to the report the Pentagon lost out on even more funds between FYs 2012 and 2017, when it failed to spend $33.6 billion on time. The news comes as Pres Trump is considering declaring a state of emergency that would allow him to bypass Congress and leverage unobligated military funds to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico southern border.
Legal analysts say Trump would have the authority to leverage unused DOD funds to construct a wall in the event he declares a national emergency. A border wall along the U.S.-Mexico border could cost up to $21.6 billion, the Dept of Homeland Security reported in 2017.
Harvard law professor Mark Tushnet told NBC News, “My instinct is to say that if he declares a national emergency and uses this pot of unappropriated money for the wall, he’s on very solid legal ground.” -- *Excerpted and adapted full original report here
