House Republicans have written to Bank of America CEO Brian Moynihan, requesting the bank's cooperation in investigating whether it willfully handed over a list of customers who made transactions around the time of the Capitol riot on January 6, 2021. The investigation is being led by the House Judiciary Committee, with the Subcommittees on the Weaponization of the Federal Government and the Administrative State, Regulatory Reform, and Antitrust conducting oversight. The committees are looking into information about American citizens that made its way to the FBI from private entities, such as Bank of America. The bank was notified of the investigation via the letter sent to Moynihan. According to the letter, an FBI whistleblower disclosed that shortly after the events at the Capitol on January 6, 2021, Bank of America provided the FBI with a list of individuals who had made transactions in the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area with a BOA credit or debit card between January 5 and January 7, 2021. The letter also states that the committees had heard testimony that individuals who had previously purchased a firearm with a BoA product were elevated to the top of the list regardless of when or where the purchase was made. The committees require the bank's cooperation in investigating these facts.

According to Fox News, documents related to customers buying firearms were "elevated to the top of the list regardless of when or where the purchase was made." George Hill, a retired FBI Supervisory Intelligence Analyst, acted as a whistleblower and said that the bank "compiled that list. And then, on top of that list, they put anyone who had purchased a firearm during any date." The investigation is ongoing, and the bank has yet to respond to the letter.
