After the FBI failed to respond at the request made by judicial Watch, and they’re obliged to do this by federal law, the group decided to file a suit.

According to the Epoch Times,
“Judicial Watch is suing the Department of Justice (DOJ) for records of communications between the FBI and major banks that gave officials data on financial transactions on Jan. 5 and 6 by suspects linked to the Jan. 6 incursion on Capitol Hill.
The Washington, D.C.-based government watchdog filed its suit after the FBI failed to respond as required by federal law to the group’s Feb. 10, 2021, Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request for: “All records of communication between the FBI and any financial institution, including but not limited to Bank of America, Citibank, Chase Manhattan Bank, Discover, and/or American Express, in which the FBI sought transaction data for those financial institutions’ debit and credit card account holders who made purchases in Washington, DC, Maryland and/or Virginia on January 5, 2021, and/or January 6, 2021.”
The law enforcement agency’s request, according to Judicial Watch, to the financial institutions was in connection with the federal investigation of the event on Jan. 6 that saw hundreds of protesters enter the U.S. Capitol to protest the November 2020 presidential election’s outcome and vote-counting.”
Just earlier this year, even Dem’s worse nightmare, Tucker Carlson claimed 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.
“Bank of America is, without the knowledge or the consent of its customers, sharing private information with federal law enforcement agencies. Bank of America effectively is acting as an intelligence agency, but they’re not telling you about it.”
“Judicial Watch said Tuesday in a statement announcing its suit against DOJ that the FBI asked the financial institutions for the data and information on all customers who fit the following profile:
* “Customers confirmed as transacting, either through bank account debit card or credit card purchases in Washington, D.C. between 1/5 and 1/6.
* “Purchases made for Hotel/Airbnb RSVPs in DC, VA, and MD after 1/6.
* “Any purchase of weapons or at a weapons-related merchant between 1/7 and their upcoming suspected stay in D.C. area around Inauguration Day.
* “Airline-related purchases since 1/6.”
And, listen to this!
“In response, on June 24, Judicial Watch provided the FBI with a news article detailing Bank of America’s handing over transaction records to the FBI of people in the Washington, D.C. region around the date of Jan. 6.
At that point, the FBI acknowledged the news article as narrowing Judicial Watch’s FOIA request, but then added that “it is the FBI’s policy to neither confirm nor deny the existence of any records which would disclose the existence or non-existence of non-public law enforcement techniques, procedures, and/or guidelines. The acknowledgment that any such records exist or do not exist could reasonably be expected to risk circumvention of the law.”
WOW! They exposed themselves with this thing they’ve done more than ever, don’t you think that?
