Texas Republican Rep. Troy Nehls said that Capitol Police illegally entered his office and took pictures of various documents and other objects. They came back two days later, where they were met by a staffer, whom they proceeded to harass. Nehls has been a very staunch critic of Nancy Pelosi, the J6 Commission, and the way the Capitol Police handled J6. No doubt he will now be savaged by the hatestream media.
Nehls claims that the Capitol Police illegally entered his office twice during last year’s Thanksgiving break.
“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. (Police) “never informed myself or senior-level staff of their investigation.”
.@CapitolPolice never informed myself or senior level staff of their investigation and the reasons are clear.

The Capitol Police Inspector General will be investigating the illegal act, but remember, this is the same IG, who allowed Ashli Babbitt’s murderer to walk free.
U.S. Capitol Police Chief Tom Manger put out the following statement:
This morning a U.S. Representative complained about one of our vigilant officers. Chief Manger stands by his officer.
“The United States Capitol Police is sworn to protect Members of Congress. If a Member’s office is left open and unsecured, without anyone inside the office, USCP officers are directed to document that and secure the office to ensure nobody can wander in and steal or do anything else nefarious. 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. No case investigation was ever initiated or conducted into the Representative or his staff.”
But, the office was not empty, a staffer was present. And secondly, if they were only doing their duty, why did they have the need to dress up as construction workers and not as the Capitol Police? Was it casual Tuesday or something?
I may not know a lot about the Capitol Police or their operating methods, but I grew up on a farm in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains and I know BS when I see it.
