Several Republicans signed a letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Committee on House Administration Chairwoman Zoe Lofgren, D-Calif., calling on them to investigate the reports of Capitol Police "monitoring" lawmakers and citizens.
Rep. Andy Biggs, R-Ariz., led the letter exclusively obtained by Fox News Digital with 33 of his GOP colleagues to Pelosi and Lofgren regarding reports that Capitol Police have dug into the backgrounds of people who meet with lawmakers.
"Recent reports state that the Capitol Police are surveilling Members of Congress, Congressional staff, and their Capitol visitors," Biggs told Fox News Digital in a Monday statement.
"If these reports are true, that the Capitol Police force is actively looking for and reviewing private information, then this is a gross violation of American civil liberties and an abuse of power," he continued. "I’m calling on Speaker Pelosi and Chairwoman Lofgren to do what is best for the American people and look into this troubling report."
The letter points to an explosive POLITICO report, saying that the Capitol Police reportedly "monitoring Members of Congress, their staff, constituents, and supporters raises serious constitutional concerns."
