JPMorgan Chase is warned to back off political and ideological censorship

May 5, 2023 | Political News

A group of 19 Republican attorneys general, spearheaded by Kentucky’s Daniel Cameron, have recently issued a warning to JPMorgan Chase & Co. The bank has been accused of engaging in discrimination against customers based on their political and religious affiliations.

In their letter, the Attorneys General contend that Chase has repeatedly targeted certain customers due to their religious or political views, despite its public declarations of inclusivity and openness. They argue that this inclusivity has not been consistently extended to all customers.

The letter specifically cites the case of the National Committee for Religious Freedom (NCRF), which had its account abruptly closed by Chase just weeks after opening. Although Chase eventually agreed to reopen the account if the NCRF provided a list of donors and political candidates they supported, the Attorneys General criticized this as a violation of the bank’s own anti-discrimination policies.
