Pelosi’s Capitol Police Gathering “Intelligence” on Hill Staffers and Citizens Who Meet with Lawmakers

Nancy Pelosi’s Capitol Police is secretly gathering “intelligence” on Hill staffers and American citizens who meet with lawmakers according to Politico.

Pelosi’s police are scrutinizing social media accounts of completely innocent people.

“Whatever they think that sounds like for security, it sounds dangerously close — if not already over the line — to spying on members of Congress, their staff, their constituents and their supporters,” Rep. Kelly Armstrong, a former criminal defense attorney told Politico.

“Anybody involved with implementing this without making it known to the actual members of Congress should resign or be fired immediately,” he added. “And I’m not big on calling for resignations.”

According to a template reviewed by Politico, Capitol Police are running “background checks” on people meeting with lawmakers including donors, associates and staffers.

In other words, Pelosi’s police are spying on political opponents and people who may disagree with the Biden Regime.

The spy operation went so far as to provide information about the buildings where members of Congress hold their meetings.

For example, who owns the building? Is there a foreign interest in the building?

How is this even legal??

Far-left Politico reported:

After the Jan. 6 insurrection, the Capitol Police’s intelligence unit quietly started scrutinizing the backgrounds of people who meet with lawmakers, according to three people familiar with the matter.

POLITICO also viewed written communications describing the new approach, part of a host of changes that the department implemented after the Capitol attack. Examining the social media feeds of people who aren’t suspected of crimes, however, is a controversial move for law enforcement and intelligence officials given the civil liberties concerns it raises.

Among those who have been subject to new Capitol Police scrutiny are Hill staffers, the three people said. All spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the matter.

Several Capitol Police intelligence analysts have already raised concerns about the practice to the department’s inspector general, according to one of the people who spoke for this story.

The Capitol Police, in a statement, defended the practice of searching for public information about people meeting with lawmakers and said the department coordinates the work with members’ offices.

“The more public information we have, the better we can understand what kind and how much security is necessary,” the statement said.
