They tried to dig for dirt on a Republican Congressman to destroy him.
But he caught them in the act, and now the whole world sees them for what they are.
It has been previously reported that ever since January 6th, the Capitol Police have effectively turned into a Deep State intelligence agency, acting as a sort of shadow FBI.
They have opened field offices across the country, and begun secretly collecting data on members of Congress, as well as members of the general public.
According to Politico, “After the Jan. 6 insurrection, the Capitol Police’s intelligence unit quietly started scrutinizing the backgrounds of people who meet with lawmakers, according to three people familiar with the matter. POLITICO also viewed written communications describing the new approach, part of a host of changes that the department implemented after the Capitol attack. Examining the social media feeds of people who aren’t suspected of crimes, however, is a controversial move for law enforcement and intelligence officials given the civil liberties concerns it raises.”
Now, a grievous example of these types of civil liberties abuses has arisen, and it is targeted at a sitting member of Congress with the intention of blackmailing him.
Troy Nehls is a Republican Congressman from Texas. He’s serving his first term, representing part of the Houston area.
On Tuesday, Nehls posted a thread on Twitter about some shocking abuses of power he discovered by the Capitol Police, directed at him.
His thread stated: “BREAKING: The Capitol Police Intelligence Division investigated my office illegally and one of my staffers caught them in the act. On November 20th, 2021, Capitol Police entered my office without my knowledge and photographed confidential legislative products protected by the Speech and Debate clause enshrined in the Constitution, Article 1 Section 6. Two days later on Monday November 22, 2021 (Thanksgiving week), three intelligence officers attempted to enter my office while the House was in recess.”
“Upon discovering a member of my staff, special agents dressed like construction workers began to question him as to the contents of a photograph taken illegally two days earlier. Capitol Police never informed myself or senior level staff of their investigation and the reasons are clear. They had no authority to photograph my office, let alone investigate myself or members of my staff.”
“So, why is the Capitol Police Leadership maliciously investigating me in an attempt to destroy me and my character? Maybe it is because I have been a vocal critic of Speaker Pelosi, the January 6th Committee, and Capitol Police leadership about their handling of January 6th, the death of Ashli Babbitt and the subsequent SHAM investigation.”
Rep. Nehl’s story speaks for itself. Capitol Police has begun functioning as a Deep State agency on par with the FBI, CIA, and NSA.
The difference is, while the FBI and NSA target ordinary Americans, and the CIA blackmails the media, the Capitol Police seems focused on blackmailing members of Congress.
This will continue until Americans finally decide to push back against these tyrannical abuses of power.
