Americans have lost their trust in the FBI. And it’s only getting worse.
Because what Jim Jordan just found out about the FBI made him sick to his stomach.
Much has been made about the events that took place on January 6, 2021.
The radical Left have done everything in their power to make it out as a day when conservatives and “MAGA Republicans” tried to take over the entire United States government in some kind of fascist coup.
The truth is that there was no master plan from conservative Americans to try and overthrow the government in Washington, D.C. and there was no plan to reinstall Donald Trump as President by force. The Leftists running with these narratives have no evidence to support their claims.
What there is evidence for is the fact that there were government and law enforcement officials involved that quite literally encouraged the events that took place that day.
There’s plenty of videos showing Capitol building police escorting the “insurrectionists” through the Capitol, free to just roam around.

Sure, this guy isn’t the brightest of us if he thought he wasn’t going to face legal consequences for what he did on January 6, but the political establishment want to keep the truth about government corruption away from the American people.
But what was just found out about the FBI is undeniable proof of just how scandalous the federal government and corrupt the D.C. bureaucrats have become.
An investigation from House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan (R-OH) and the Antitrust Chairman Thomas Massie (R-KY) has turned up evidence that Bank of America voluntarily turned over records of banking transactions of customers in the Washington D.C. area around January 5th through the 7th.
But now there’s more evidence that several other major banks did the same exact thing.
All of this would’ve been handed over to the FBI without any sort of warrant whatsoever, bringing up serious concerns that the FBI violated fundamental First Amendment rights of thousands, even hundreds of thousands of Americans.
Jim Jordan and Thomas Massie wrote to these banks letters saying that they will be conducting further investigations about their business and are seeking “full cooperation.”
“An FBI whistleblower has disclosed that following the events at the Capitol on January 6, 2021, Bank of America (BoA) provided the FBI—voluntarily and without any legal process—with a list of individuals who had made transactions in the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area with a BoA credit or debit card between January 5 and January 7, 2021,” Jim Jordan and Thomas Massie wrote in their letters.
“Based on this information, we are evaluating whether other financial institutions similarly provided federal law enforcement with private customer data with legal process. We appreciate your full cooperation,” the two Republican congress members continued.
The recipients of the letter will have until the end of the month on June 26th to hand over the documents Massie and Jordan have requested before they are hit with subpoenas forcing them to do so.
“All documents and communications from January 1, 2021, to the present between or among officials, employees, or consultants and the FBI referring or relating to the provision of financial records to the FBI concerning the use of a product between January 5, 2021, and January 7, 2021, in the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area,” the letter requests of the banks.
There’s many questions that need answers here. Why would the FBI be requesting this customer data from these banks? Why would the banks be handing over private information without any mention of a court warrant?
This absolutely stinks of constitutional violations and hopefully, Massie and Jordan get to the bottom of who is responsible for this violation of privacy.
Stay tuned to the Federalist Wire.
