Democrats have tried to convince Americans that the Trump White House was filled with scandal.
But these smears don’t hold a candle to alleged dark deeds in the Obama and Biden Presidencies that Democrats and the media are trying to hide.
Now thanks to Senator Tim Scott, an Obama-era operation has resurfaced that Joe Biden never wanted unearthed.
If you donate to Donald Trump’s campaign for the White House or buy a “MAGA” hat, you might be on a government watch list.
Big Media is hoping then-President Barack Obama’s Fast and Furious program, the IRS targeting conservative non-profits, and the sending the Feds to spy on the Trump 2016 campaign have faded from the collective conscience.
And they believed another Obama/Biden Administration scandal would remain a secret.
Obama’s Operation Choke Point all over again?
However, a new investigation is bringing to light a little-known Obama-era secret – and it’s the last thing incumbent President Joe Biden wanted out in the public eye.
And Biden’s Treasury Secretary Janet Yellin has some explaining to do with new questions coming from Republican Sen. Tim Scott of South Carolina and House Judiciary Committee Chairman Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio.
Sen. Scott has sent a letter to Secretary Yellin asking if her Treasury Department has been monitoring the purchases of conservative Americans.
The Republicans’ new Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government discovered documents revealing the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) had flagged the terms “Trump” and “MAGA” as part of its witch hunt investigation into the January 6 protests.
According to a report from the Daily Wire, FinCEN also ordered banks to monitor the purchase of religious texts and outdoor sporting goods stores like Cabela’s.

“These allegations, if true, represent a flagrant violation of Americans’ privacy and the improper targeting of U.S. citizens for exercising their constitutional rights without due process,” wrote Sen. Scott – who is the ranking member of the Senate Banking Committee – in his letter to Yellin.
The letter was also sent to FinCEN Director Andrea Gacki.
According to Scott, FinCEN’s monitoring of Trump supporter’s financial activity is similar to a program from the Obama Administration.
“These allegations are particularly concerning given past efforts to weaponize the financial system and payment activity against politically disfavored, lawful activity,” Scott wrote. “Under the Obama- Administration’s ‘Operation Choke Point’ initiative, the Department of Justice (DOJ) coordinated with federal financial regulators to intimidate financial institutions into denying services to legitimate businesses that the Administration was ideologically opposed to, including gun retailers.”
The Swamp being called to answer for its actions
Republican Legislators in the House aren’t wasting any time acting on the new information.
In response to the new findings, Rep. Jordan has requested an interview with Noah Bishoff, the former director of the Office of Stakeholder Integration and Engagement in the Strategic Operations Division of FinCEN.
With President Biden’s approval numbers in the toilet and his re-election on the line in November, yet another scandal regarding his Administration’s abuse of power is the last thing the embattled commander in chief could possibly want right now.
