The House Jan. 6 committee is investigating more than seven-and-a-half hours of missing White House phone logs during the Capitol riot last year. Fox News confirmed Tuesday that the Jan. 6 committee is probing a gap of seven hours and 37 minutes in White House phone logs of President Trump’s phone calls on Jan. 6, 2021.
The gap runs between 11:17 a.m. ET and 6:54 p.m. ET on Jan. 6 during the heart of the Capitol riot. The log issue was first reported by The Washington Post and CBS News. The Department of Justice declined to comment to Fox News on the specific phone log gap.
When asked Monday about the overall Jan. 6 investigation, Deputy Attorney General Lisa Monaco promised it would continue.
“Let’s be very clear, we are going to continue to do those cases,” Monaco said Monday. “We are going to hold those perpetrators accountable, no matter where the facts lead us at as the Attorney General has said, no matter what level we will do those cases.”
During the missing hours, Trump attended a rally and spoke at the Ellipse, a 52-acre park south of the White House fence. A crowd of people then moved to the U.S. Capitol, overwhelming police and marauding through the building for hours before they were finally kicked out and the building was declared secure at about 5:30 p.m. More than 700 people have been arrested.
