(CNN) A few months before rioters stormed the US Capitol , the Department of Homeland Security restricted the flow of open-source intelligence reports about "election-related threats" to law enforcement, citing First Amendment concerns, according to documents reviewed by CNN.

The revelations not only add to a growing concerns about intelligence gathering, but they also raise questions about a key staffer on the committee investigating the insurrection and his previous role in determining how threat information that came from public sources, was shared with law enforcement prior to the Capitol attack.

Joseph Maher, who changed the protocols around disseminating open-source information as head of DHS' intelligence arm, is now on the staff of the House Select Committee on January 6.
