(CNN) – White House call records now in possession of congressional investigators do not reflect calls made to or from then-President Donald Trump as the violence unfolded on Capitol Hill on January 6, 2021, leaving them with gaps so far in their understanding of what transpired that day, three sources familiar with the House investigation into the insurrection tell CNN.

The records the House select committee has obtained do not contain entries of phone calls between the president and lawmakers that have been widely reported in the press. Trump was known to make calls using personal cell phones, which could account for those.
Investigators Find Gaps in White House Logs of Trump’s Jan. 6 Calls https://t.co/lXeDi1tzT8 I wonder if some of the records that were destroyed were with Putin?

Two of the sources, who have also reviewed the presidential diary from that day, say it contains scant information and no record of phone calls for several hours after Trump returned to the Oval Office after giving a speech to his supporters at the Ellipse until he emerged to address the nation in a video from the Rose Garden.
The House select committee has received hundreds of White House records since Trump lost a legal fight at the Supreme Court to keep them secret. The committee had asked the National Archives for all call logs and telephone records for Trump and top aides as well as daily presidential diaries.
A spokesperson and an attorney for Trump did not respond to requests for comment.
Sources familiar with the investigation say they haven’t drawn any final conclusions, suggesting the gaps in the records may be explained by the use of personal cell phones, or because Trump was simply not making or receiving many calls during the riot. There is also the possibility the Archives will find more records that can explain the gaps.

The King does not give his phone records to the puny peasants. Be gone and back to work !
“….no record of phone calls for several hours after Trump returned to the Oval Office….”
Maybe he was busy seated on his golden toilet holding toilet paper on his hand….
Justice Department needs to have the FBI raid all Trump properties in search of any evidence pertaining to January 6. This needs to be treated like a RICO case. Merrick Garland is guilty of dereliction of duty!
Merrick Garland just smiles and waits for the next shoe to drop, the one that forces the USA into a catastrophic war with Russia. That’s what the Ashkenazim have been hoping will happen for centuries.
Merrick who? Another Biden do-nothing slug. Name one of his appointees that isn’t. This whole Sleepy Joe administration is a total joke. But VT won’t go after these clowns who actually have an opportunity to nail some of the neocon gangsters. Politicians are all whores.
Just one absolutely asshole would have on his own property incriminating evidence of himself…. there can be exceptions…. 🙂
Federal marshals need to descend on Mar-a-lago, confiscate the missing boxes of records, and perp-walk Trump back to Rikers Island to stand trial for tax evasion and money laundering NOW! That this didn’t happen months ago is proof enough that the next horrible false-flag attack on the USA that forces us into a catastrophic war with Russia will be allowed to happen, just like 9/11 was allowed to happen.
Or with Iran. The entire hasbara regime is accumulating dirt on whoever is doing anything in Vienna to avoid a war by rejoining the JCPOA just what that dead Adelson now that trash wife of his wanted and purchased through their prostitute orange buffoon.
I like the picture that you made up above Jim or Gordy.
Presidents DO NOT pay for their crimes. Never have and probably never will.
