Chase Bank is shutting down accounts of people and organizations with controversial political views, according to an undercover investigation by James O'Keefe's Project Veritas.
O'Keefe's latest probe found that Chase, without explanation, abruptly closed the account of a political activist that had existed for 15 years in good standing.
Enrique Tarrio, chairman of the Proud Boys activist group and owner of a website that sells provocative political merchandise, spoke to Chase representatives who could not explain why his business account was about to be terminated.
Tarrio recorded the calls and provided them to Project Veritas.
Chase banker Marcel Smith told Tarrio: "I see nothing that indicates any reason why the account should be closed. I don't see any outstanding transactions or anything ridiculous."
