Massive Waste: The 60,000-Seat Stadium Washington, D.C. Built To Host The James Comey Hearing Cost Over $1.4 Billion
Since construction began on the 2.1-million-square-foot stadium last month, Comey Hearing Stadium has already far exceeded its original $300 million budget, burning through mountains of taxpayer money as crews worked overtime to clear a site on the National Mall, ship in materials for the multiple tiers of audience seating, and install the $2 million Astroturf floor for Comey to stand on. Yet for all the resources poured into this ambitious project, the stadium stood unfinished and barely functional by the time the former FBI director entered through the tunnel to address the audience of 60,000.
