A select House subcommittee issued a subpoena to Bank of America (BoA) Thursday, seeking information on the bank providing customers’ financial information to the FBI.

The Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government of the House Judiciary Committee announced the subpoena via a post on X, formerly known as Twitter, and a press release. The House of Representatives voted to establish the select subcommittee chaired by Republican Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio in a party-line vote on Jan. 10.

 

“In 2021, BoA provided the FBI—voluntarily and without any legal process—with a list of individuals who made transactions in the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area using a BoA credit or debit card between January 5 and January 7, 2021,” Jordan wrote in the letter dated Thursday.

Jordan and Republican Rep. Thomas Massie of Kentucky previously requested the information in June. “It is unclear what ‘legal’ process permits the FBI or BoA to share the sensitive customer information of potentially thousands of BoA customers and implicate them in a federal law enforcement investigation without any clear criminal nexus,” Jordan wrote. Bank of America refused to voluntarily provide the information, according to the letter, claiming it followed a “legal process.”:snip:
