As previously reported, US Capitol Hill police, dressed as construction workers, broke into Rep. Troy Nehls’ office during the November break last year.
The Capitol Police took photos inside the Texas Republican’s office and then came back two days later to harass his staff using the illegal photos they took just days earlier.
“On November 20th, 2021, Capitol Police entered my office without my knowledge and photographed confidential legislative products protected by the Speech and Debate clause enshrined in the Constitution, Article 1 Section 6.” Troy Nehls said in February of this year. “Two days later on Monday November 22, 2021 (Thanksgiving week), three intelligence officers attempted to enter my office while the House was in recess.”
“Upon discovering a member of my staff, special agents dressed like construction workers began to question him as to the contents of a photograph taken illegally two days earlier.” Nehls said in February.
The Inspector General for the US Capitol Police has opened a formal investigation of the matter that involves his police officers.
According to Politico the Capitol Police has been secretly spying on Republican lawmakers since the Jan. 6 protests and riot. Rep. Kelly Armstrong (R-N.D.) said that he is unaware of any members know about this new practice in place.
Pelosi wants to build satellite offices for her Capitol Hill Stasi police to operate in Florida and California.
On Thursday GOP Rep. Nehls released an internal US Capitol police memo confirming USCP illegally investigated his office.
“Internal US Capitol Police memo confirms USCP illegally investigated my office & violated my Constitutional protections as a US member of Congress, per Section 6, Article 1 of the US Constitution.” Troy Nehls said.
