The select committee investigating the events of January 6th have made it no secret that they have their sights set on former President Donald Trump, and this week has brought them ever closer to their prey.
Never mind the fact that Trump has already been acquitted of “inciting” the riot that saw the US Capitol under siege on that fateful day. This is a Democratically-run committee whose goal appears to be layering their version of the truth over the year-old, previously adjudicated version.
And in this pursuit, they’ve reached deep into the inner circle of Donald Trump, including during instances in which they’ve targeted his family.
Phone records of Eric Trump and Kimberly Guilfoyle have been obtained by the select House select committee investigating the Capitol riot, marking the first time the panel has issued subpoenas to family members of former President Donald Trump, CNN reported.
On Tueday, CNN special correspondent Jamie Gangel broke the story to “The Situation Room” anchor Wolf Blitzer.
“As far as we know, this is the first time the committee has issued a subpoena targeting one of the Trump children, and it really underscores just how aggressive the committee is willing to be in its investigation,” Gangel said.
Obtained from communication companies, the records disclose logs of incoming and outgoing calls, as well as their time, length, and date, according to CNN. The records also contain a log of text messages but do not disclose their content.
The pair had spoken to at the “Stop The Steal” rally that took place prior to the Capitol riot.
The Committee itself has remained under constant criticism due to its partisan nature, with a vast number of Donald Trump’s former confidantes simply refusing to humor them.
