This will be very interesting as well as dangerous since we are dealing with the corrupt military industrial complex. You know there will be trillions of missing dollars.

Have only seen the article on OANN so far. I wonder if opposition media will touch this story or be more interested in what Trump eats for Christmas dinner.

It's about time but Trump didn't "order it."

It is, as well as probably the most sensible thing with more potential to benefit the country than Trump has done yet IF it's done by outside auditors and not just a Dog & Pony Show staged by the Pentagon itself.

It will be preempted on CNN with an anonymous source claiming that Trump took two slices of pumpkin pie at Thanksgiving.

A full discussion panel will demand an investigation and special prosecutor.

What will Fox's spin be?

I hope it does good but I think it is more deflection by the dear leader.

This isn't new. Many sub agencies in the DoD have been under audit since 2014 with direction to provide clean financial statements by 2017. When that was to be complete, then the overall DoD audit falls in line with that, which would be 2018. For anyone that works in DoD, this isn't new, it's known and the preparations have been going on for years.

It will be done by outside independent auditors.


As for how the audit would work, Jim Garamone of the official DoD News agency reports that the department's Office of the Inspector General has "hired independent public accounting firms to conduct audits of individual components — the Army, Navy, Air Force, agencies, activities and more — as well as a departmentwide consolidated audit to summarize all results and conclusions."

This sounds like a good idea to audit the Pentagon. Maybe now we will get to know why a toilet seat cost $100.

How much is the audit going to cost? Is it being done by Blackwater?

Trump can barley shake it off when he's done peeing without the Leftwing MSM calling it deflection/collusion/obstruction.
