Jim Jordan Alleges Federal Use of January 6th Events for Extensive Surveillance on Bank Transactions Linked to Terms such as ‘Trump’ and ‘MAGA’

Chairman Jim Jordan, leading an inquiry into the J6 Committee’s actions, asserts that the federal government, under Nancy Pelosi’s appointment, unjustly singled out and breached the privacy of conservative individuals. Jordan’s statements align with former President Donald Trump’s belief that Biden’s Department of Justice has been weaponized against conservatives.

He alleges that federal authorities instructed financial institutions to scrutinize records for transactions linked to conservative terms like MAGA, contending that such invasive actions without justification constitute a legal violation.

Allegedly, the federal government surveilled the transactions of 98 institutions.

Chairing both the House Judiciary Committee and the Select Subcommittee on Weaponization, Jordan penned a letter outlining the federal government’s alleged unjust identification of terms like “MAGA” and “TRUMP.” According to Fox News, the letter was directed to Noah Bishoff, the former Director of the Office of Stakeholder Integration and Engagement in the Strategic Operations Division of the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN).

Observers have highlighted significant differences in the treatment of pro-Trump J6 protesters compared to past BLM demonstrators and more recent anti-Supreme Court and pro-Palestinian protestors. Jordan’s disclosures have prompted calls from some quarters to disband FinCEN, citing the need to “save the Republic.”
