George Hill, a retired supervisory intelligence analyst, blew the whistle on the FBI, alleging that the agency utilized data mining from Bank of America regarding customers and transactions to follow information on probable protest attendees on January 6.
“Hill, testified that the Washington Field Office presured other field offices to investigate citizens for activities protected by the First Amendment.”
Early in February, Hill appeared on the Real America’s Voice program Just The News and told the audience that American citizens who had done nothing more than attend a political rally in the nation’s capital were having their bank records searched and analyzed for purchases, including the acquisition of firearms.
The Federalist’s Margot Cleveland and Mollie Hemingway provided further information on Hill’s recent remarks before the new US House Committee on Weaponizing the Government:
According to evidence seen by The Federalist, an FBI whistleblower told congressional investigators that the D.C. field office pressured local offices to start criminal investigations against Individuals based only on financial transactions documented and freely given by Bank of America.
“Bank of America, with no directive from the FBI, datamined its customer base,” whistleblower and recently retired FBI supervisory intelligence analyst George Hill told House Judiciary Committee investigators, according to Hill’s testimony.
Hill identified himself as one of the cooperating whistleblowers with congressional investigators when he spoke with John Solomon of Just the News about the disclosures he provided to the House Judiciary Committee during a transcribed deposition last month. A study of Hill’s testimony validates the facts the former FBI and NSA analyst and military veteran shared with Solomon. It also provides other disturbing facts.
Hill stated that on either January 7 or 8, 2021, Bank of America presented the FBI’s Washington, D.C. field office with a “large list” of persons who used Bank of America credit or debit cards in Washington, D.C., or the neighboring Maryland and Virginia areas on January 5, 6, or 7. Bank of America then moved to the top of the list everyone who has ever used a Bank of America product to acquire a handgun (until January 6, 2021).
The Federalist went on, adding:
There was no geographic or date-range limit to the search for firearm purchases, Hill stressed, meaning the individual would be flagged at the top of the list had he “purchased a shotgun in 1999” in Iowa, and used a Bank of America credit card to check out of a hotel on Jan. 5, 2021, in the Northern Virginia area, following a trip that could be completely unrelated to the Capitol riot on Jan. 6.

The D.C. field office, which oversaw the Jan. 6 investigation, distributed the Bank of America list internally to field offices throughout the country, Hill testified in his deposition. Hill further explained that his supervisor at the Boston field office refused to open an investigation on the individuals flagged on the list because there was “no predication.” “There’s no crime that was committed by using a [Bank of America] product in the District or around the District,” Hill testified, explaining his supervisor’s reasoning for why no “further action” was required.
