Tucker Carlson Accuses Bank of America of Revealing Customer Data

In the weeks after the attack on the Capitol, there has been a major search to identify the “extremists” and ” domestic terrorists.” During Tucker Carlson Tonight, the Fox News host alleged that the second largest bank in the country is helping federal agencies track down these individuals by providing customer data, without telling their customers. According to Carlson, Bank of America sifted through the financial records of its more than 60 million customers to find those who “fit the specific profile.”

Townhall reports:

Bank of America “is actively but secretly engaged in the hunt for extremists in cooperation with the government,” he said. “Bank of America is, without the knowledge or the consent of its customers, sharing private information with federal law enforcement agencies. Bank of America effectively is acting as an intelligence agency, but they’re not telling you about it.”

Here’s what that profile was: “1. Customers confirmed as transacting, either through bank account debit card or credit card purchases in Washington, D.C. between 1/5 and 1/6. 2. Purchases made for Hotel/Airbnb RSVPs in DC, VA, and MD after 1/6. 3. Any purchase of weapons or at a weapons-related merchant between 1/7 and their upcoming suspected stay in D.C. area around Inauguration Day. 4. Airline related purchases since 1/6.”

The first thing you should notice about that profile is that it’s remarkably broad. Any purchases of anything in Washington, D.C.; any overnight stay anywhere in an area spanning three jurisdictions and hundreds of miles; any purchase not just of legal firearms, but anything bought from a “weapons-related merchant,” T-shirts included; and any airline-related purchases — not just flights to Washington, but flights to anywhere, from Omaha to Thailand. That is an absurdly wide net.

Bank of America identified a total of 211 customers who met these “thresholds of interest.” At that point, “Tucker Carlson Tonight” has learned, Bank of America turned over the results of its internal scan to federal authorities, apparently without notifying the customers who were being spied upon. Federal investigators then interviewed at least one of these unsuspecting people. That person, we’ve learned, hadn’t done anything wrong and was cleared.

BoA did not deny its effort assisting law enforcement but said “all banks have responsibilities under federal law to cooperate with law enforcement inquiries in full compliance with the law.”

However, Carlson pointed that the major issue is that no one in law enforcement or the Biden administration is explaining who fits the bill for being a political extremist.



  1. The banks are NOT your friend, PERIOD, SMART people have NOTHING to do with ANY bank, your local credit union is the ONLY way to go because, at least, you are an OWNER!

      1. Credit Unions are ‘owned’ by it’s members. Those same members make the rules through their employees. Consequently they can issue the order to NOT accept ANY order from an entity that does not have a court order for information, and that is tailored to specifically identify the information desired and their legal basis for pursuing it.
        Credit Unions are NOT banks which ARE bound by Federal Banking Commission rules and regulations. Credit Unions are PRIVATELY held organizations.

        1. Anony — I thought that also — so I did some research and actually talked with ceo’s and other high ranking officials in a couple of different credit unions — they have to follow or will follow a government mandate. I have a complete mistrust of banks, they are too big and too powerful but I thought credit unions were different also — THEY ARE NOT !!!!!! I’m starting to think “the under the ol’ mattress” hiding place(or whereever) in your home may be our best bank.

      1. You’re too stupid to understand. Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, and Porky Pig are waiting for you over at Looney Tunes. That’s where you belong.

        1. I am of the opinion that ignoring the troll Albert Hess and leaving his posts unresponded to is the best way to get rid of him. He’s only trying to irritate you, but he has the right to post his opinions just like the rest of us. Just skip over them.

          1. That what I do with the idiot. I bit for a couple of weeks and now just don’t even look at it much less respond. Anything he puts on site is totally ignored. Agreed he has the right to post and I have the right to see his name and totally ignor. Would not give the SOB any satisfaction at all. He is a joke.

    1. BofA and the rest of the banks have gone dark. They removed the protections of the members as soon as the opportunity arose in the 70s to the present. Nothing is safe in a traditional bank these days. I try to keep as little as possible in reach of any of the institutions including S&Ls. No stocks and nothing but solid investments in land and properties. We have cash holdings but they are fairly safe just subject to what ever tax dreams the DNC has if we with draw. Though Yellen wants to tax gains while stocks are still invested. Wonder if she plans on giving back the tax on gains when they turn south as losses. And that is coming.

  2. I have never had a bit of business with BOA, but anyone who has should form a class action suit against these miscreants for any number of offenses regarding invasion of privacy.

      1. Is there a warrant?
        If so, is the warrant specific, as required by law?
        There’s a process for ‘cooperating with the cops.’ Was that process followed or did BoA simply volunteer their clients’ information in a fishing expedition?

      2. BOA is subject to REQUIRING a Court Order giving the reasons and specifics for any information asked for by ANY source. That includes, specifically, law enforcement. If you have the ability, Rudolph Hess namesake, learn to read the fine print.
        IF BOA didn’t have such a court authorized order, and IF BOA acted on it’s own volition and revealed information about it’s customers WITHOUT such a court order, they’re in deep shit.

      3. BOA is subject to REQUIRING a Court Order giving the reasons and specifics for any information asked for by ANY source. That includes, specifically, law enforcement. If you have the ability, Rudolph Hess namesake, learn to read the fine print.
        IF BOA didn’t have such a court authorized order, and IF BOA acted on it’s own volition and revealed information about it’s customers WITHOUT such a court order, they’re in deep doodoo, legally. .

    1. Rather than “Amigos” the word commonly used for ‘butt buddies’ or bung holes is more accurate. But generally blocked by you know who.

  3. Who fits the bill for a political extremist? In my book that would include just about any communist-democrat in the Congress along with a few Republican RINO’s. Any of them that behave as though they are above the law and any that think they can cancel any Constitutional right of anyone. All of those should be kicked out of the Congress and be forced to leave without any benefits. A few should be kicked out of the country after their citizenship has been revoked.

  4. Where the heck are we in this country. I’m beginning to feel like this new regime of radical democrats are not interested in improving the country they are hell bent on destroying any thing that is not part of their agenda. But what is their agenda? It’s beginning to look like the communist party agenda. They are using tactics I have never seen in my 81 years on this planet. People in the opposing party (republicans) are being censored and belittled by the democratic party goons. This will not play well and the more they push their stupid agenda the more the opposing party and it’s membership will begin to push back. I fear the hammer may come down, hopefully from the supreme court, not the citizens.

    1. Exactly..its a true Fascist/Communist dictatorship with the Gestapo in force to squash any dissent. Well, watch out ..people in record numbers have bought guns and ammo all over the us and are prepared to use them..WE WILL NOT LOSE OUR FREEDOMS to this evil

      1. …and like the good little communist country we have turned into, they’ve got plans for your weapons and ammo.

    2. Remember that when Obama was interviewed on FACE THE NATION before his first election and explained that the reason that he and Michelle did not put their hand over their hearts was because we were a warlike nation and his goal was to put us on a parity with the muslem nations so that they would have no reason to attack us? That is when it all started. These people are basically communists who have confused equal opportunity with equal results. In other words everyone ends up the same. Our system is based on individual self interest which results in a better overall country.

    3. BEGINNING TO THINK ??????? Have you not been watching since the sleazeball clinton was in office !!! In fact it started long before him but not so blatant– the demoRAT socialist/communist/anti-American party couldn’t care less about improving this country,Constitution,Rule of Law or any American citizen’s rights. They are all about greed and power and they have been undermining this country for many years — why do you think they had to get rid of the wrench the American people voted into office in 2016. President Trump was interrupting their illegal dealings(both parties) with our enemies, their ring of corruption that is our government and all agencies. With Trump gone — you see how fast they are back to total corruption.

  5. We used to be able to open up a bank account with a signature card – now there are paragraphs of paper to read and sign and more and more forms for ‘changes’ they have made to their accounts that you should read. These come periodically with your statement on online if you do not receive paper statements. Buried in the legalese is this language that they have the right to share info. This does not surprise me at all. I started working for BofA in the 70’s and still have my account since 1971 – time to leave – but where do you go? Just keep some cash or other resources if you want to purchase now questionable items.

  6. not half as bad as some things Obama and his crew did to Americans. I have to wonder though if Antifa or BLM people are found in these searches, will they be revealed as well?

  7. Not susprised. Trump warned us and here we are! Still nothing but talk being done. Maybe of we keep talking we can talk the corrupted politicians out of Congress! Maybe? Treason committed daily crimes against America daily yet they still occupying Congress! Let’s keep talking!

  8. I don’t doubt that soon other businesses will be providing information to the Fed about purchases, travel, political donations, etc. if they aren’t doing it already. And if they have the technology to scan phone calls using key words or metadata, they can probably use it to identify anyone that they think may be a “domestic terrorist” or an “insurrectionist”.

    Remember, the government “reserves the right” excusively to define what those two terms mean and it can be as broad or as narrow as they choose.

    1. Only problem is they’re ONLY GOING TO IDENTIFY AND INVESTIGATE WHITE CONSERVATIVES —— NOT BLACK, NOT LATINO, NOT WHITE COMMUNIST TERRORIST , NOT antifa —>REAL DOMESTIC TERRORISTS !!! and blm —>REAL DOMESTIC TERRORIST !!! We – the people who ACTUALLY LOVE OUR COUNTRY are taking notes and we won’t forget .

      1. Fed up — yes — the American voters “will forget” and put the same sleazeball communists back in office come voting time. It has been happening for 100 years –except for 2016!!!!! Just look at congress — they are 99% all career criminal hacks who could not make it in the real world so went into politics where corruption,lying,greed is mandatory — that is why Trump is gone. But my point is — you are wrong(wish you weren’t) — the voters will forget and put the same criminals back in office — they just proved it.

    2. Look what they’re doing to Trump supporters; ex, Mike Lindell. Practically putting them out of business. But boycotting can work both ways.

  9. Who wrote this article some coward it says Tucker Carlson Accuses BOA I watched the show last night There was no accusation s He had actual Proof That is a BIG difference your yellow stripe is showing

  10. Our country is slowly but surely becoming first a socialist, then communist nation. Do you remember what the initials USSR stood for?? United Soviet Socialist Republic. Our country is also a republic but a democratic one. I guess sometime in the near future we may see our USA changed to USSA (United Socialist States of America. Unless people wake up and demand a return to our constitution starting with doing away with digital voting and a return to paper ballots.

    1. Excuse me, but we’re already there. National Guard and fencing to protect the low-lives in Congress. They’re protecting themselves from the deeds they have in store for us. Have already opened the flood-gates on our borders. And guess who they’ve already invited in – MS-13 to continue their nasty deeds that Trump cleaned up. They’re biggest fear is DT returning.

  11. I no longer trust the Gop for anything. There are still far too many rinos involved and that means support at the state level not the government level. Clean em out state by state.

  12. EVERYONE – Immediately Withdraw all your funds from B of A NOW, and close your accounts…
    It’s the Only AMERICAN thing to do …

  13. Ok, there’s so much I could post, but I’ll try to be brief. Our country started to go down this path the day our country lost its mind and elected BHO. Yes my friends, thanks to all our white and Catholic brothers and sisters that couldn’t handle their white guilt. 8 years in office wasn’t quite enough time for our country to be transformed. Sooo, here we are 12 years later. Are you enjoying everything that’s happening to our country and its citizenry? Well, hope you are! You voted for this craziness!!!!
    Furthermore, this is just the beginning. You will lose your job, you will be called out and cancelled out, only God knows what else is on the way. But,
    you will like it or you cease to exist. Let that sink in for a minute. FOOLS, each and everyone of you that voted for this disaster.
    Of course, I don’t include our Patriots who post commonsense on here.

    1. Communism seeped into this country at the end of WWII when Roosevelt said to the USSR; you can take Eastern Europe and I’ll closely watch the Western Europe. Then Kruschev(sp?) said, “we’ll bury you. And not only that, but you’ll lose to communism from within.” Reagan managed to delay it for a few years. But those on the Right woke up after Obama’s threat of “transformation”. The ‘limousine’ Left chose to ignore it assuming it wouldn’t effect them.

  14. that is why they are going to stop printing money and go all digital and plan to make it against the law to pay anyone in cash so they can keep track of everything you do and this kind of proves it so if you want to buy a gun pay in cash if you buy from a private person before they make this into law and it’s coming as the democrats have full power

  15. Need to say I am on 5he Trump Train and like John Dooley, I will ride forever. They probably will try to drag me off screaming and kicking but as of right now, my Freedoms will never be taken away from me by any illegitimate President and/or his administration. They are impostors in our government who plan on nothing else but destroying our people and this country. God has big plans for them

  16. If you aren’t a terrorist don’t worry about a bank cooperating with law enforcement. If you have a Social Security number Uncle Sam can find out just about anything else about you anyway, right to privacy notwithstanding.

  17. There is one current practice that is irritating maybe more than others! When a media site decides to censure and ban any one person pr group THEN THIS MEDIA SITE SHOULD BE EQUALLY BANNED FROM UsING ANY INFORMATION FROM OTHER SOURCES OR FROM ANY OF THEIR OWN REPORTERS ABOUTTHE SOURCE BEING BANNED AS LONG AS THE BANNED LOCATION CANNOT DEFEND THEMSELVES FROM THE MEDIA SITE. This would put maybe not equal hardship on these large media sites but it would make it more fair and get the American public more honest information

  18. “Hellow, we’re here from the government (and/or our covert friends) and we’re not certain whether we’re here to help you.” Sounds correct?

  19. SHOCKED!! SHOCKED, I say, to find out there is spying going on here!! (Seemed like a good place for a “Casablanca” quote)

  20. If you’re conservative and use Bank of America, you’re screwed. Way back, when there were only two genders and both wore hats, privacy was preserved by common sense bankers who valued American principles. Not so much today.

  21. John …. BOA data-mined customer accounts using specific criteria to ID “Insurrectionists” at the Capitol in the 1/6 time frame and THEY GAVE THE RESULTS TO LAW INFORCEMENT. Which 2 Amendments did they break???? Dah!!!!

  22. So. if you were near DD on or about 1/6, you’re a criminal …. you only need to walk the halls of congress to ID 300+ criminals … the Dems!!!!!

  23. Rules & laws only apply to Republicans
    Dem’s make up rules & their own laws, as they go along for ALL power & control.

  24. I do not agree that anyone’s personal information should ever be released without the consent of the person!!! EVER !!! UNKESS YOU ARE IN POLITICS . WHERE THESE POLITICIANS ARE SUPPOSED TO BE WORKING FOR US AND UNTIL TRUMP NOT ONE POLITICIAN HAS DONE ANYTHING TO BENIFIT THE CITIZENS OF THIS COUNTRY.

THESE GUN LAWS ARE AS STUPID AS THOSE MAKING THEM . AND THESE VIRUS RESTRICTIONS ARE BULL CRAP . AND THOSE THAT PAID FOR THAT DAMOCRAPS. SHOULD BE IN PRISON FOR SETTING IT OUT ON THE WORLD. WE HEARD WHO WAS WORKING ON THIS WHEN IT FIRST HAPPENED. AND DAMOCRAPS WERE PAYING FOR THE RESEARCH WITH COMMUNIST BIDENS BUDDIES. IN A CORRUPT COUNTRY BIDEN AND DAMOCRAPS ARE AS CORRUPT AS CAN BE .AND NO ONE IN POLITICS SHOULD BE ANYTHING BUT AMERICAN. WE SHARE WITH THEM THATS FINE NOT GIVE IT TO THEM . WE SHOULD NEVER BE INVADED BY SWARMS OF ILLEGAL’S LIKE THIS COMMUNIST DICTATOR IS WANTING TO DO !!! I WILL MOT FOLLOW AND LAW THIS FRAUDULENT GOVERNMENT PUTS OUT . PEOPLE DO NOT GIVE UP YOUR GUNS FOR NO REASON. WE HAVE THE RIGHT TO DEFEND OURSELVES.

  25. THESE IDIOTS CALLED DAMOCRAPS HAS TO BE PUT IN THEIR PLACE AND NOT LET THEM RUIN OUR COUNTRY . THEY DO NOT HAVE THE RIGHT!!! JUST BECAUSE THEY GAVE THAT RIGHT TO THEMSELVES!!! SO NOW ITS OUT TURN TO GIVE OURSELVES SOME NEW RULES AS WELL !!! PEEELOUSI ‘S RULES FOR YOU AND NOT FOR ME DONT WORK FOR ME AT ALL REGAURDLESS OF WHAT PRESIDENT OR DICTATOR IS IMPOWERING THESE IGNORANT LAWS. !!!
