Texas’s outspoken Republican Congressman Troy Nehls has dropped a bombshell on Twitter.

In a stunning series of tweets, Congressman Nehls outlines a scenario that one would expect to read in a Russian spy novel, and certainly not in the United States of America.

Rep. Nehls, a vocal critic of the partisan hack January 6th Committee and of the shooting death of Air Force veteran Ashli Babbitt, tweeted about a discovery made by staffers in his office over the Thanksgiving break in November 2021.

Nehls tweeted:

Police cars revolving lightBREAKINGPolice cars revolving light The @CapitolPolice Intelligence Division investigated my office illegally, and one of my staffers caught them in the act.

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.

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.

@CapitolPolice never informed myself or senior-level staff of their investigation, and the reasons are clear.

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?

Maybe it is because I have been a vocal critic of Ā @SpeakerPelosi, the @January6thCmte, and @CapitolPoliceĀ leadership about their handling of January 6th, the death of Ashli Babbitt, and the subsequent SHAM investigation.

National Pulse reports – Capitol Police Chief J. Thomas Manger confirmed the Inspector General has now opened an investigation after receiving multiple congressional inquiries into the Capitol Police tactics, such as those reported by Politico. Capitol Police intelligence analysts have also raised concerns to the inspector general over the department’s practice.

Politico – Several Capitol Police intelligence analysts have already raised concerns about the practice to the departmentā€™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 membersā€™ offices.

Major changes in the Capitol Police intelligence unit started in the fall of 2020 when the department brought on former Department of Homeland Security official Julie Farnam to help run its intelligence unit, which is housed in its Intelligence and Interagency Coordination Division. In the weeks before the Jan. 6 Capitol attack, Farnam made a host of changes to internal intelligence protocols that ā€œcaused internal confusionā€ and ā€œscrambled the prioritiesā€ of the unitā€™s analysts, according to CNN.

Then, in the months after the riot, Farnam changed another key process in a way that hasnā€™t been previously reported.

Watch Nancy Pelosi’s US Capitol Police Chief Manger explain to US Senators how the US Capitol Police Department has “doubled” the number of police members to address the “threats.” Did he mean to say they’ve increased the number of Capitol Police needed to spy on members of Congress who opposed and expose the lies of Nancy Pelosi and friends?

For years, analysts in the departmentā€™s intelligence division have put together documents called Congressional Event Assessments. That process entails the House and Senate Sergeants at Arms, Congressā€™ chambersā€™ internal logistical and security leaders, sharing information with Capitol Police on lawmakersā€™ plans for meetings and events away from the Capitol.

Intelligence division analysts then use that information to assess physical safety risks to those events ā€” things such as large, planned protests, parades, concerts, or other events that would draw crowds. Analysts regularly filled out a standard template with that assessment.

But after the Capitol attack, Farnam changed the template. According to a copy that POLITICO reviewed, she directed analysts to look closely at the people meeting privately and publicly with members.
