According to a new report by Fox News’ Tucker Carlson, Bank of America is sifting through their customer transactions and targeting people who may have been at the Capitol riot on January 6.
Federal investigators allegedly requested bank information from any customer that fit the profile after making purchases in the D.C. area, or buying flight tickets or hotel accommodations in the area.
@TuckerCarlson breaks the story that @BankofAmerica searched through customer data after Capitol riot without the consent or knowledge of its customers. As a customer, I am greatly disturbed by this and want answers from #bankofamerica

The bank then identified 211 customers who fit the profile.
Carlson accused BOFA of treating their customers “like a member of Al Qaeda.” He said the left is ‘creating extremists like they did in Iraq.”
Tucker Carlson reveals that Bank of America was flagging the purchasing history of its customers and sending it to the federal government in order to find out if they were involved in the Capitol riot.

Here is what they were scanning through transactions for:
The Daily Mail reports:
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.
He compared the events of January 6 to 9/11 and said that the pro-Trump mob ‘wasn’t terrorism, it was a riot’
‘So I wonder that’s the pretext upon which they are justifying 9/11 level surveillance suspension of civil liberties effectively martial law in the Capitol? It’s that?’ the host asked.
This truly is disturbing information.
The more I think about this, the more disturbing it is. https://t.co/CLMoQlB6zK
