JPMorgan Chase deplatforms National Committee for Religious Freedom

Oct 17, 2022 | Political News

In an op-ed in the Washington Examiner, the chairman of National Committee for Religious Freedom (NCRF), Sam Brownback, announced that JPMorgan Chase had deplatformed the organization without providing a reason. The bank said it would consider reopening the account if NCRF provided a list of donors and preferred political candidates.

Brownback said that NCRF opened an account with JPMorgan Chase “because of its national footprint and the multigenerational banking relationships our team had with the bank.” He added that the experience with the bank was “initially very positive,” but the bank closed the account after only three weeks.

Brownback said that NCRF “received a letter notifying us that Chase had decided to ‘end their relationship,’” and the account was closed before the receipt of the letter.
