Texas Congressman Accuses Capitol Police of Breaking Into His Office, Taking Confidential Docs

Texas Representative Troy Nehls has accused the U.S. Capitol Police of entering his office taking photos of a confidential legislative proposal.

The freshman congressman said that Capitol officers entered his office in November and photographed the documents without his knowledge.

Politico reports:

Nehlssaid they snapped pictures of a draft legislative proposal that would have ensured body armor quality for law enforcement officers. He said Capitol Police Chief Thomas Manger indicated they were investigating a “veiled threat” against the congressman, but Nehls said he was never warned of such a risk.

Rep. Nehls released a statement on the disturbing break-in.

“After communicating with Chief Manger, it became clear that my office was under investigation and surveillance by [Capitol Police]. We were the ‘threat.’ If Capitol Police had spent this much time investigating January 6th as they did investigating my private legislative materials, January 6th would not have happened.”

Chief Thomas Manger said it’s policy that if officers see a lawmaker’s office is open without anyone inside, they are “directed to document that and secure the office to ensure nobody can wander in and steal or do anything else nefarious.”

“The weekend before Thanksgiving, one of our vigilant officers spotted the Congressman’s door was wide open,” Manger said. “That Monday, [Capitol Police] personnel personally followed up with the Congressman’s staff and determined no investigation or further action of any kind was needed. No case investigation was ever initiated or conducted into the Representative or his staff,” Manger said in a statement.

Republican lawmakers are also calling for an investigation into reports of Capitol Police “monitoring” lawmakers and citizens. Rep. Andy Biggs along with 33 other lawmakers reportedly wrote a letter to House Speaker Pelosi and House Administration Chairwoman Zoe Lofgren demanding an investigation on “Recent reports state that the Capitol Police are surveilling Members of Congress, Congressional staff, and their Capitol visitors.”

Fox News reports:

“If these reports are true, that the Capitol Police force is actively looking for and reviewing private information, then this is a gross violation of American civil liberties and an abuse of power,” he continued. “I’m calling on Speaker Pelosi and Chairwoman Lofgren to do what is best for the American people and look into this troubling report.”

The Republicans wrote that the report revealed the Capitol Police are also “monitoring the online activity of congressional staff and individuals who meet with Members of Congress” and that the force is “reviewing property tax information” to learn the owners of the buildings “where the meetings take place” as well as “reviewing online information to determine if any of the meeting attendees have contacts with foreign nationals.”

“Additionally, Capitol Police were directed to look for information on donors and staff ‘that would cast a member in a negative light,’” the letter reads.

“If true, these allegations are serious violations of Americans’ civil rights and civil liberties,” it continues. “Our constituents have the right to petition Congress and they should be able to exercise this right without fear that Capitol Police will scrutinize their property taxes, social media, or relationships.”

    1. Lowlife lying cops are pigs . They’re kissing Piglosi’s arse . You can bet she put them up too this crap . They were spying on any Republican and conservative .

      1. They should never have agreed to those tactics. Someone needs to get a private investigator to look into the records of the Capitol Police.

    1. Let’s make a prisoner swap with these police officers and the Jan 6 prisoners being held illegally and under unbelievable conditions.

    2. globalists and their puppet $oro$ do not allow their globalist puppet, demonrat criminal party arrest their demonrat criminal voters .

  1. You better be nervous what evidence globalists and their demonrats will have their capitol police plant in your office ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !

  2. Door was “Wide Open”, what the Capital Police didn’t say was that they were the one who opened the door! An independent Investigation needs to be done to investigate the Capital Police, why they vacated the scene just prior to Ashley being shot….why the officers opened the doors from the inside, why they ushered people INTO the Capital???

  3. The Gestapo is live and well in The darkness of American Government. We can thank the Communist Democrats for that!

  4. Wonder if it is the same capitol police who unlocked the doors to the capitol on January 6h for the patriots who have falsely been accused of breaking in. Wonder if it is the same capitol police who were dressed like patriots and led the charge into the capitol. Wonder if it is the same capitol police who work for Nancy pelosi and is setting up patriots to take the blame for breaking in when the doors were unlocked. Bottom line is : Patriots Never Break any Laws because if you do, you are probably being entrapped by the democrats and will you will pay an awesome price.

    1. We need to open an investigation for misconduct by Capitol Police through a private investigator since the agencies are not to be trusted anymore.

  5. And not one of these criminals will even see a charge! NOT ONE! Maybe you need to put rat traps in your office! Then all you have to do is look for the criminals with broken fingers!

    1. Put wild boar traps in your office, and video tape locking your door. Those Capitol Police most surely have skeleton keys.

  6. This is the new American Gestapo in action. These Stasi wannabes should be investigating their very own Lt. Michael Byrd for murdering Ashli Babbit rather than engaging in trying to instigate another “Reichstag fire” event. These clowns are just as crooked as the FBI. They should be disbanded and replaced. None of them should be allowed to retire and draw a fat taxpayer funded pension. They suck. Every one of them.

  7. I can’t say that I’m surprised.
    After I watched those 3 THUGS testify before Congress, and libturd Lizzie Chaney went up to them and hugged them, I remember thinking.
    These 3 biased men are NO GOOD!
    This and so much more is our future under this corrupt administration.
    Please get informed and contribute if you can to the good candidates running in your states.
    We can stop the bleeding if we take back the house and the Senate.

  8. Too bad when that fence went up around White house they didnt keep it up and just keep all Government criminals to stay in there.
    Ridding us of all the constant corrupt shit.

  9. I’m beginning to think there’s some guy in the White House going by the name of Joe Biden. But he’s really Joe Stalin.

    1. KGB is running the Capitol Police. These “Police” are most certainly nefarious at best. We’re living in a Police State right now. Hush, hush style!

  10. KGB tactics being utilized by Capitol Police under the directions of Nancy Pelosi. Why would you complain to the head Fox if you saw the Henhouse had been violated by a Fox.

  11. What the Capitol Police did is illegal and they should be made to pay restitution for their actions ! They are Piglosi’s personal Gestapo … ” F ” them all !

  12. Evil is prevalent in our World today. When God was taken out of early childhood development, it produced people with no moral integrity or conscience. Obama the “Community organizer” certainly organized alright. He put corrupt lawyers, judges, teachers, legislatures, Police etc. in positions of authority Now we understand why the Movie is taking so long to play out. e must pray for all teh White Hats cleaning up our World and pray for the brave Canadian truckers, Cowboys and Farmers

  13. What we need here… is the right to sue cops (in Civil Court) that step on our constitutional rights! “Qualified Immunity” = The Monster Mafia!

  14. Tell me something new. There is no crime in America anymore that actually gets prosecuted. What happened to Nehls isn’t a crime, it was a misunderstanding or the police raided the wrong Congressman or it never happened or it’s getting forgotten or the police were mislead or….

  15. Let’s be honest folks, NOTHING will happen to the capitol police as long as Paloozer and the demoRATS reign. It’s time to get off of ALL of our collective backsides and vote this bunch of crooked scumbags out of office as soon as possible.

  16. The SOH should NEVER be in charge of the Capital Police, it is too tempting to use them as a private security force, and do things that are not within the law but are within what the SOH could “ask” of the Capital Police. Especially if the Capital Police and the SOH are of the same political leaning, then the temptation is too great that they will do exactly this type of thing. Plus the SOH should be under investigation for not protecting the Capital on January 6th. Especially if the reports are true that she turned down the extra security offered by President Trump. If this is true than she and Chuckie are the ones responsible for January 6th happening, NOT any of the so-called “protestors”. They were simply exercising their right to protest a corrupt election.

  17. Everyone, not just the conservatives in DC, should be on their guard–Big Brother is watching and he is aided by his not so covert progressive socialist Democrat army of spies in the cesspool called Washington, DC.
