Congressman Nehls Accuses Capitol Police Of Illegally Investigating His Office


The events of January 6th and the ensuing fallout seem to be shifting into sharper focus with time.

Condemning videos of Capitol Police ushering January 6th protestors into the Capitol building raised more than a few concerns from those truly paying attention.

Now we are hearing other concerning claims from Congressman Troy Nehls…

According to Nehls, the Capitol Police illegally entered his office and took photos of documents which they had no authority, right, nor consent to photograph.

If what Nehls says is true, and I have no doubt that it is, the Capitol Police should be facing a lot more scrutiny for their involvement in the events of that day and the subsequent developments which followed.

Here’s what Congressman Nehls is claiming:

According to Fox News:

Nehls blasted out a press release on Tuesday with the accusation, saying he was placed under a probe “in which a USCP officer entered his office and took a photo of private Congressional material protected by the Speech and Debate Clause, Article I Section 6 of the U.S. Constitution.”

“The photo was passed up to USCP intelligence analysts and a report was filed citing ‘suspicious writings,’” Nehls’ office wrote in the release. “That following Monday, three plainclothed USCP agents returned to the office, where they questioned a staff member about the contents of the questionably-obtained photo.”



The Hill featured the response from the Capitol Police Chief to the accusations made by Congressman Nehls:

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

But Nehls rejected the statement from Manger, calling it a “mischaracterization” of what happened.
