Customers buying firearms was "elevated to the top of the list regardless of when or where the purchase was made."

Republicans in the House of Representatives have sent a letter to the Bank of America's CEO, Brian Moynihan, on Thursday requesting his bank's cooperation in the investigation headed by the House Judiciary Committee into whether the financial giant willfully handed over a list of their customers who made transactions around and during the day of the Capitol riot on January 6, 2021. 

According to Fox News, the Subcommittees on the Weaponization of the Federal Government, chaired by Representative Jim Jordan of Ohio, and on the Administrative State, Regulatory Reform and Antitrust chaired by Representative Thomas Massie of Kentucky are "conducting oversight" into "information about American citizens" that made its way to the FBI from "private entities," such as Bank of America, and notified the bank via the letter sent to Moynihan.

According to the letter, "An FBI whistleblower has disclosed that shortly after 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."

"The Committee and Select Subcommittee have also heard testimony that individuals who had previously purchased a firearm with a BoA product were elevated to the top of the list regardless of when or where the purchase was made.? We require your cooperation in investigating these facts," it continues.

Massie and Jordan gave the CEO until June 8 to turn over the records they have requested.

Fox reports that records related to customers buying firearms were "elevated to the top of the list regardless of when or where the purchase was made."

George Hill, a retired FBI Supervisory Intelligence Analyst, acted as a whistleblower and said that the bank "compiled that list. And then, on top of that list, they put anyone who had purchased a firearm during any date."
