Secret Service hands over phone numbers of agents working Jan. 6th

By ,

The Secret Service has reportedly offered a list of cell phone numbers to the House committee investigating Jan. 6. The numbers belong to phones used by agents working in Washington, D.C. This comes on the heels of controversy stemming from deleted text messages after a reported system change wiped out the data.

“In the very least, it is quite crazy that the secret service would actually end up deleting anything related to one of the more infamous days in American history, particularly when it comes to the role of the secret service,” Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) said on CBS’ “Face the Nation” last month.

The phone numbers given to the committee are from the agents’ government phones. There is, however, a separate list of personal cell phone numbers reportedly handed over to the Inspector General in its own investigation of Jan. 6th. Having access to their phone numbers will open the door for call records to be released.

With the phone numbers, the House committee members can either directly request call records from the Secret Service or they can even go to the cell phone carrier to subpoena the call records they want from Jan. 5 and 6. The committee will review which agents they want call records for.

More committee hearings are expected in September.
