Pentagon watchdog investigating $400M border wall contract

Pentagon watchdog investigating $  400M border wall contractThe Defense Department’s internal watchdog is investigating a $ 400 million border wall contract awarded to a firm that used multiple appearances on Fox News to push for the job. The Pentagon’s inspector general sent a letter Thursday to House Homeland Committee Chairman Bennie Thompson telling him the contract awarded to North Dakota-based firm Fisher Sand and Gravel Co. would be audited. Thompson, D-Miss., asked for the review last week, in part over concerns the proposals did not meet operational requirements and prototypes came in late and over budget.
