Jim Jordan subpoenas Bank of America over sharing customer data with FBI

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan on Thursday served Bank of America with a subpoena, seeking information related to the firm's voluntary sharing of customer data with the FBI to aid its Jan. 6 investigations.

"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," the Judiciary Committee stated in a press release. "When that information was brought to the attention of Steven Jensen, the FBI's then-Section Chief of the Domestic Terrorism Operations Section, he acted to 'pull' the BoA information from FBI systems because 'the leads lacked allegations of federal criminal conduct.'"

The committee further stated that it had identified documents suggesting the FBI sought to explore a litany of financial transactions from the data, including prior firearm purchases.
