SHOCKER: Feds Spying On Trump Supporters’ Bank Accounts

Federal investigators reportedly instructed banks to scrutinize customer transactions using terms like “MAGA” and “Trump” as part of the Jan. 6 investigation, raising concerns among conservatives that they are being specifically targeted for politicized harassment. The House Judiciary Committee’s revelation has added fuel to the growing fear that the Biden Administration is engaged in targeted political harassment of opposition voices. 

The documents suggest that officials recommended banks to query transactions with keywords associated with conservative interests, including Dick’s Sporting Goods, Cabela’s, Bass Pro Shops, and more. This has intensified suspicions that not only political affiliations but also certain businesses and beliefs are under increased scrutiny.

Committee Chair Jim Jordan expressed deep concern over the use of generic terms like “Trump” and “MAGA” to search payment messages, suggesting a broader pattern of targeting individuals based on their political expressions. The warning about purchases of “religious texts” being indicative of “extremism” has further raised alarm bells, with conservatives questioning the potential bias underlying such judgments.

Jordan’s criticism of FinCEN’s collaboration with law enforcement and its use of financial institutions to comb through private transactions amplifies the growing sentiment among conservatives that they are being subjected to unwarranted surveillance and scrutiny.

The revelation comes against the backdrop of reports indicating that Bank of America voluntarily provided the FBI with a list of individuals making transactions in the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area around Jan. 6, 2021. This has fueled concerns that conservative individuals engaging in lawful activities are being unfairly targeted, further adding to the perception of politicized harassment.

The call for interviews with key figures, such as former FinCEN director Noah Bishoff and FBI senior private sector partner Peter Sullivan, reflects an urgent need for transparency and accountability in the wake of these revelations. Conservatives are increasingly vocal about the need to safeguard their privacy and constitutional rights, fearing that the current actions may set a dangerous precedent for targeted harassment based on political beliefs.

As the FBI declined to comment, conservatives are left grappling with heightened concerns about being singled out and subjected to intrusive scrutiny merely for their political affiliations. The call for interviews and investigations serves as a rallying cry for conservatives demanding fair treatment, free from politically motivated harassment.
