  • White House call logs from January 6, 2021 show a 7-hour gap, CBS and The Washington Post reported. 
  • The January 6 Committee is probing whether Trump may have used aides’ phones or burner phones. 
  • Here’s the full timeline of Trump’s known phone calls as recorded in official White House records.

Reconstructing the timeline of President Donald Trump’s phone calls, communications, and movements is a key focus of the House select committee investigating the January 6 insurrection. 

The Washington Post and CBS obtained and reported on White House call logs and records secured by the Committee on Tuesday, documents that provide the most comprehensive timeline of Trump’s known phone calls before and after the riots at the US Capitol.

But the official White House call logs contain a more than seven-hour gap between 11:17 am and 6:54 pm, a crucial stretch of time during which Trump openly pressured Vice President Mike Pence to overturn the 2020 election results in Congress, the president’s supporters violently breached the Capitol, and Trump put out multiple tweets and videos about the events. 

Here’s the full timeline of Trump’s communications on January 6 as documented in official White House call logs and records obtained by the January 6 committee and reported on by The Post and CBS.

“It’s absolutely clear what President Trump was doing — Supporters were urged to donate to Trump’s “election defense fund” but the committee said it found no such committee or fund existed. Instead, much of the $250 million raised went to Trump’s new super PAC, called the Save America PAC, launched just the days after the election.
