(WND News Center) — The FBI attempted to sic its agents on innocent Americans after a major banking corporation datamined its own customers and voluntarily gave the bureau a list of customers who had made purchases in the Washington, D.C., area around the January 6, 2021, Capitol riot.

They also gave names of anyone who at any time previously has purchased a weapon.

The FBI, of course, has lost much of its credibility in recent years, to the point there have been calls to defund the organization because of its conspiring with Democrats to manufacturing the “Russia collusion” claims against former President Donald Trump.

That campaign included FBI agents and lawyers assuring each other they would not let Trump be president, and the use by agents and lawyers of manufactured evidence in federal court.

Now a report from The Federalist reveals what whistleblower George Hill has told the House Judiciary Committee.

That would be that, “Bank of America, with no directive from the FBI, datamined its customer base.”

The FBI is planning to intensify its “assessment” and “mitigation” of “Radical Traditionalist Catholics” over the next 12 to 24 months according to an explosive document from a former agent turned whistleblower.

SIGN & SHARE: Tell the FBI to stop its surviellance of faithful Catholics and focus on the real criminals.

The bombshell 8-page memo was released by former FBI agent Kyle Serpahin on his website UncoveredDC Wednesday. The report, written by an FBI analyst in Richmond, Virginia, was published for internal agency use only on January 23, is titled, “Interest of Racially or Ethnically Motivated Violent Extremists in Radical-Traditionalist Catholic Ideology Almost Certainly Presents New Mitigation Opportunities.”

Seraphin describes the briefing as an “intelligence product” that, though not being exhaustive, can be used as an initial reference point for the agency to “prop up” future investigations on the subject. He says he obtained the document from an anonymous Baptist employee for the agency.

“This is the first FBI Richmond domain product to focus on the interest of racially or ethnically motivated violent extremists in the Radical Traditional Catholic movement,” the document states. “A search of FBI databases indicates this is also the first FBI finished intelligence product to specifically address this environmental variable.”

SIGN: Politically-motivated witch-hunts of faithful Catholics cannot be allowed in a civilized society

Among the most controversial aspects of the memo is that it directly cites a defamatory study conducted by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) on the subject “Radical Traditional Catholicism.” The SPLC has long been rejected as a legitimate resource for the FBI, Seraphin says, but in this instance, it is being relied on as a primary source to justify its efforts. The memo also references three anti-Catholic smear articles (herehere, and here) published by leftwing websites Salon and The Atlantic to defend its monitoring.

The report alleges that its real motivation is a concern that “Radical Traditionalist Catholic Ideology” possesses an “anti-Semitic, anti-immigrant, anti-LGBT, and white supremacy” outlook, and that this presents a threat to the US’s domestic well-being. The report further claims that adherents to RTC ideology “frequently share language and symbolism, such as crusader references or anti-Semitic discourses” online that pro-life white nationalists also support.

SIGN: The FBI's smear campaign against Catholics cannot be allowed to stand

Please send this petition to as many concerned Americans as possible - we cannot allow the continued politicization of the FBI.


FBI whistleblower releases docs showing agents are surveilling "Radical" Traditional Catholics in Virginia

The report by Margot Cleveland explains the FBI’s Washington office “pushed local offices to open criminal investigations into Americans based solely on financial transactions Bank of America tracked and voluntarily provided to the bureau.”

She said The Federalist reviewed the testimony.

Cleveland reported Hill had identified himself last month “as one of the whistleblowers cooperating with congressional investigators when speaking with Just the News’ John Solomon about the disclosures he made to the House Judiciary Committee during a transcribed deposition. A review of Hill’s testimony confirms the details the military veteran and former longtime FBI and NSA analyst told Solomon. It also reveals more troubling details.”

For instance, the report said, Hill explained that around the time of the Capitol riot, Bank of America gave to the FBI a “huge list” of people who used its cards in D.C., Maryland, or Virginia.

And it elevated “to the top of the list” those who ever had used a bank card on a weapons purchase.

It was so overreaching, Hill explained, that the top list would have included someone who bought a shotgun in 1999 in Iowa, and used a Bank of America card for a hotel around the time of the riot.

The Washington office then sent the list to field offices across the country, even though “There’s no crime that was committed by using a [Bank of America] product in the District or around the District.”

The D.C. office then pressured other field offices to open up “cases” against innocent Americans, the report said.

Some responses from those offices included, “No, we’re not going to open up cases based on credit card or debit card activity that took place.”

The Federalist said, “Hill’s deposition testimony raises another troubling possibility: that one or more of the other 54 local FBI field offices either complied with the D.C. field office’s initial request to open investigations into innocent Americans, or later capitulated when the D.C. office escalated the request up the chain of command to the ASAC and then the SAC.”
