Washington, DC — Congressman Troy E. Nehls (R-TX-22) issued the following response to U.S. Capitol Police Chief Thomas Manger’s statement on Capitol Police entering his office and taking photos of private Congressional materials:

“Chief Manger’s statement is a mischaracterization of the events, omits key details, and fails to respond to the most troubling actions of his Department.  Nowhere did he mention the photograph that was taken of my constitutionally-protected legislative priorities, nor did he mention the three agents wearing work clothes that returned to my office without advance notice for further questioning regarding the initial entry.  In what world does Capitol Police leadership encourage officers to enter a Member’s private office, take photographs, collect evidence, dispatch intelligence agents to question staff— and then say that’s not an investigation?  I am looking forward to the OIG investigation into this matter since Capitol Police leadership cannot be relied upon to hold themselves accountable.  I also respectfully ask the Capitol Police to release the photo that prompted this criminal investigation.”
