House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan issued a subpoena to Citibank on Thursday, demanding information about whether the bank gave law enforcement information about customer transactions in the days surrounding the attack on the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021.
The subpoena, obtained exclusively by CNBC, came after Jordan previously requested that several financial institutions, including Citibank, provide the information voluntarily. Citibank was the only bank that had not voluntarily complied with the committee’s request.
The robe into whether banks turned over data to the government to assist in the investigation and prosecution of the Jan. 6 rioters was sparked by an FBI whistleblower, who disclosed that Bank of America had voluntarily provided a list of people who made transactions with a BofA credit card or debit card in the Washington area between Jan. 5, 2021, and Jan. 7, 2021.
