Bank of America is now collaborating with Federal Law Enforcement officials, co-opted by the leftist Biden/Harris regime sharing “without knowledge or consent” their customer’s information. All of this is in a joint effort between big-business interests and the political left to rapidly hunt down and neutralize participants in the January 6th breach of the US Capitol. Fox News host Tucker Carlson broke this story Thursday night. Bank of America’s stock didn’t even wiggle.
According to DailyWire Carlson asked,
“What exactly are they doing?” “How are they hunting these extremists they keep telling us about, but will not describe?”
“We now know part of the answer to that question,” Carlson said. “This show has obtained exclusively evidence that Bank of America, the second largest bank in the country with more than 60 million customers, is actively but secretly engaged in the hunt for extremists in cooperation with the government.”
Tucker Carlson explained, “Bank of America searched its databases looking for people who fit a specific profile, Here’s what that profile was, and we are quoting, ‘customers confirmed as transacting either through bank account, debit card, or credit card purchases in Washington, D.C., between January 5 and January 6. Number two, purchases made for hotels, Airbnb, RSVPs, in Washington, Virginia, or Maryland after January 6. Number three, any purchase of weapons or at a weapons-related merchant between January 7 and their upcoming suspected stay in the D.C. area around Inauguration Day. And four, airline-related purchases since January 6.”
According to Carlson, using this criteria, Bank of America identified a total of 211 customers meeting a “threshold of interest” and turned over their findings to the Federal government without ever notifying those customers.
Bank of America’s Response? No Comment
In a statement regarding the story, Bank of America said,
“We don’t comment on our communications with law enforcement. All banks have responsibilities under federal law to cooperate with law enforcement inquiries in full compliance with the law.”
As Brandon Tatum observed it seems that Bank of America is treating ordinary Americans “like Al Qaeda”. The Daily Mail, a prominent UK newspaper of all places noted,
“It is not known at what other points Bank of America, or other U.S. banks, may have been asked to hand over information on customers.
Later in the show, Carlson again targeted federal authorities definition of ‘domestic terrorism’ as he accused them of not explaining what it is.
‘We’re starting to believe they are not defining it for a reason,’ he claimed.”
