 The City of Portland and the Federal Bureau of Investigation have had a tumultuous relationship in recent years.

Now, the Bureau wants to splash $65 million on a new headquarters building near the airport, and the City is thinking about getting back together again. Abe and Joe take a look at the FBI's past, and weigh in on the question of re-joining the JTTF.
