A member of Congress who is a former Texas sheriff blasted the Capitol Police and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-California) on Tuesday and revealed that investigators had illegally entered his office, taken pictures of legislative work product, and then launched an investigation based on what they had found on the congressman’s white board.
U.S. Representative Troy Nehls (R-Texas), who served more than 30 years in law enforcement and became sheriff of Bend County before he was elected to Congress, put out a series of bombshell-dropping tweets on Feb. 8 that detailed his allegations of malfeasance against the U.S. Capitol Police (USCP) and U.S. House leadership.
“The @CapitolPolice Intelligence Division investigated my office illegally and one of my staffers caught them in the act,” the thread posted by Nehls began.
“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,” the lawmaker continued.
“Two days later on Monday November 22, 2021 (Thanksgiving week), three intelligence officers attempted to enter my office while the House was in recess,” Nehls tweeted.
“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,” he wrote.
“@CapitolPolice never informed myself or senior level staff of their investigation and the reasons are clear,” Nehls tweeted. “They had no authority to photograph my office, let alone investigate myself or members of my staff.”
“So, why is the Capitol Police Leadership maliciously investigating me in an attempt to destroy me and my character?” he asked in yet another tweet. “Maybe it is because I have been a vocal critic of @SpeakerPelosi , the @January6thCmte, and @CapitolPolice leadership about their handling of January 6th, the death of Ashli Babbitt and the subsequent SHAM investigation.”
Nehls office put out a press release at the same time that explained the congressman’s allegations in far more detail.
The first incident occurred on Nov. 20, 20201 when a USCP officer allegedly discovered an unlocked door on Nehls’ congressional office.
The officer entered the congressman’s office and proceeded to take photos of confidential materials that were found inside, including a white board that contained information about “a pro law enforcement bill that would have ensured body armor quality for law enforcement officers,” according to the press release.
Nehls’ office said the officer sent the picture up the chain at USCP and it made it to intelligence analysts that filed a report citing “suspicious writings” found in the GOP congressman’s office, sparking concern and causing the launch of an investigation.
But Nehls said his office was never notified that there was any sort of investigation into him or his staff being conducted.
Two days later, while Congress was out on Thanksgiving break and most offices were empty, three USCP officers dressed as construction workers tried to get into Nehls’ office yet again.
But on Nov. 22, they encountered a staff member who was there working.
