‘It’s Dangerous’: Daily Caller Reporter Reagan Reese Rips ‘De-banking’ Of John Eastman, Christian Groups

Daily Caller White House correspondent Reagan Reese criticized former President Donald Trump’s lawyer John Eastman and other Christian organizations for “debanking” on Real America’s Voice on Wednesday.

Mr. Reese appeared on “The War Room” to discuss recent reports about how Bank of America and financial services company USAA closed Mr. Eastman’s accounts without warning. Eastman told the Daily Caller that he had been fired over several months from two prominent federally insured financial institutions, which he blamed on “political retaliation.”

Before Reese’s interview, host Natalie Winters began by playing an audio recording of Bank of America refusing to tell Eastman the reason for closing the account. Mr. Winters questioned the content of the report and the warning it sent to Americans. (Related: ‘Pretty despicable’: John Eastman speaks out after Bank of America closes USAA account)

“This debanking trend appears to be the new frontier of Democratic legislative issues,” Reese said. “In short, John Eastman first learned that his Bank of America account was scheduled to close in September 2023 and that he could not provide details about why he chose to do so. “If you would like to know more, please feel free to call us.” When he goes to call them, the audio is heard. In fact, they say it’s our policy not to talk about anything else. And this was after he had been doing business with Bank of America for about 40 years. ”

“Well, two months later, USAA (a company known for banking and insuring military families) also moved to close his account without providing any details,” Reese said. He continued. “After obtaining a letter from John Eastman confirming that his account had been closed without warning, we went to Bank of America and USAA. Bank of America initially said, I will provide comments by the deadline.” We gave them 2 days to do so and contact us. And about an hour before my deadline they came back to me and said, “You know, we don’t actually comment on client issues.” USAA never responded to me. ”

“I followed up three times, and after the deadline passed, I followed up again and said, ‘This is the last time I’m going to follow up, do I have to provide anything?’ When I spoke to him, he was 99% sure that this was political retaliation after everything he had been through since providing legal advice to President Trump after the 2020 election. “He just saw it as a new challenge and another way for the left to attack him,” Reese said.

A Daily Caller reporter said that in addition to Eastman, the Government Accountability Foundation also said it was seeing similar situations occurring in “many Christian organizations.” Accountability groups have noted that Bank of America is said to be “known” for such conduct, and Reese said it is a “chilling effect” it could have on many Americans and the way banks operate. warned about the effect.

“I spoke to the Government Accountability Foundation, and they said that many Christian organizations are actually experiencing something like this. “As they pointed out, Bank of America is actually known for doing this to Americans,” Reese said. Ta.

“As you know, it’s dangerous when Americans’ bank accounts are closed for no reason, leaving them unable to access their money and feed their families and pay their bills,” she continued. “And even if the bank doesn’t give a reason, there may be even the slightest indication. But there is a thought in their mind that this might be political, and that It has a very dire effect.”

“Americans will become concerned that they should not speak up about their beliefs and trust to avoid the risk of losing their relationship with their bank. You don’t have a choice. Maybe the closest bank in the future, which might be Bank of America, could put you at risk,” Reese said.

In late March, a California bar disciplinary judge ruled that Trump’s former lawyer was accused by a California lawyer of harming the country through election interference in 2020 in an attempt to block the transfer of power after he took office. In response, the committee issued a written opinion recommending his disqualification. Joe Biden won.

The recommendation will be submitted to the U.S. Supreme Court, which will make a final decision on the attorney’s case.
