‘They’re not telling you about it’: Carlson says Bank of America is sharing data with FBI

As much of the private sector continues an attack against Americans deemed to hold dangerous viewpoints, Fox News Channel’s Tucker Carlson recently put the spotlight on Bank of America.

During a recent on-air segment, the Fox host blew the door wide open on the financial institution’s alleged decision to secretly provide information about some of its customers to the FBI.

“Actively but secretly engaged”

Of particular concern, Carlson said, was the vague label of political extremism used to determine which accounts should be flagged. He expressed fear that the label will soon be applied broadly to conservatives Americans.

According to Fox, Carlson told his audience that the program had “exclusively obtained evidence 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.”

The move is taking place “without the knowledge or the consent of its customers,” the host asserted.

Bank of America is “sharing private information with federal law enforcement agencies,” he continued, accusing the company of “effectively acting as an intelligence agency, but they’re not telling you about it,” according to Fox.

Carlson explained that the data gathering was being conducted in the wake of last month’s breach of the Capitol building by Trump supporters upset over the results of the November presidential election. The ensuing riot led to multiple deaths, including that of Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick.

“Newly engaged and highly empowered”

Nevertheless, the host said customers caught up in the bank’s recent moves were not necessarily proven to have any ties to that incident.

“These were the private records of Americans who had committed no crime; people who, as far as we know, had absolutely nothing to do with what happened at the Capitol,” Carlson said, as Fox reported. “But at the request of federal investigators, Bank of America searched its databases looking for people who fit a specific profile.”

Emphasizing the fact that federal agents appeared to have cast a very broad net, he continued: “It doesn’t matter how much you despise Donald Trump or how much you believe that hatred of Trump justifies suspending this country’s ancient civil liberties, going through that experience would scare the hell out of you.”

As the New York Post noted, the recent revelation has sparked calls for boycotts of the banking behemoth, which has notably not yet denied the claims.

Carlson, for his part, concluded his talk with his belief that “none of these newly energized and highly empowered extremist hunters have told us exactly what an ‘extremist’ is,” leaving Americans “to guess, to look around nervously to see if we can spot one.”

  4. Just keep all these notes for election time for any position. We the people have the power to put these Dems out of office and business. Pease don’t vote by mail or by machine. Vote at voting place on paper ballot and turn it in yourself.

  5. Do you know whether they are Democrat or republican? It is hard to know who to trust. Because when you leave office , who’s to say they don’t throw it in the trash.

    1. They usually have a slotted box to put ballot in so that would mean they would have to open box but I guess they could these days and get away with it. If we have to tell if we are Republican or Democrat then we should ask them what they are before voting I guess. The fraud in this last election has changed everything.
      The mail in voting caused a lot of problems this past election as they find ballots in pastures that were dumped by postal service and others.

  6. WHY DO ALL THE NEWS ARTICLES SAY “MULTIPLE” DEATHS . why cant the news be specific with numbers instead of leading to a false impesasion of uncounted numbers. news people should be more responsible by telling the truth. how many deaths were caused by the demonstrators, how many happened because of health of the decedant ornon- denonstratioon causes

  7. When will someone until Jesus comes back, hold the government accountable like the government holds citizens accountable? This seems backwards. Why are the citizens that go to school, work, pay taxes, and try and follow the laws, being scrutinized for doing the right thing? Then you have the people that are supposed to do the right thing for the people, since they were voted by us, lying, stealing, turning their backs, abusing, and not protecting the same citizens? Where is the accountability? Are they Americans, or some cult? Then they claim to be honest, and are looking out for our best interests. The Constitution does not say to do any of that. So let us vote these people out of office today. This is the abuse of power, not unity as they claim it to be. Put them on trial, not President Trump. It is the right thing to do.

  8. They said that 5 people died during the Capital attack. It’s odd they pay respects to the officer that died and by the way he did not die from the Capital attack. His friends said he went home and later that night he had a stroke. Also they have never told the other supposedly victims names that died or didn’t see any funerals or none of the supposed families came forth. That is odd too. Just a thought.

  9. Tucker Carlson knows what he is doing. He don’t lie to the American people. He tells the truth all the time no matter what it is. He don’t ever pull his punches on any body.

  10. Dems are paranoid because they know that there agenda is already raising eyes among all Americans. Look what they are doing with the military. Thats enough to tell you where their heads are.
