House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) has subpoenaed Bank of America, seeking records related to the bank’s information-sharing with the FBI around the time of the January 6, 2021, Capitol attack.

Jordan asserts that Bank of America has not provided the committee with the filing it turned over to the FBI.

The investigation, initiated in May, is focused on financial institutions’ collaboration with the FBI to collect Americans’ financial data. (Trending: Eight Republicans Who Shamefully Sided With Democrats Over Impeachment)

“The Committee has received 223 pages of documents responsive to our original requests,” admitted Jordan.

“However, to date, [Bank of America] has refused to provide the Committee and Select Subcommittee with the filing it turned over to the FBI,” added the lawmaker.

The subpoena requires Bank of America to provide communications and documents related to transactions performed between January 5 and January 7, 2021, in the D.C. area, by December 15.

Jordan and Republican Rep. Thomas Massie, who chairs the Subcommittee on the Administrative State, Regulatory Reform, and Antitrust, both opened separate investigations into the financial institute this year.

Rep. Jordan posted an image of an email exchange between federal law enforcement addressing the issue saying, “you should have an email from … with our filling on the parameters you discussed with … last week.”

“We followed all applicable laws in our interactions with the Trump Administration’s Treasury Department and law enforcement,” reportedly wrote to The Hill about the dispute.

This move follows a previous request to Citibank, aiming to assess the extent of financial institutions’ cooperation with the FBI in collecting financial data.
