January 6 committee obtains phone records of Eric Trump and his brother’s fiancé, Kimberly Guilfoyle, through subpoenas

Eric Trump speaks with Donald Trump Jr’s fiancé Kimberly Guilfoyle during a “Keep Iowa Great” press conference in Des Moines, IA, on February 3, 2020.

Both Eric Trump and Kimberly Guilfoyle spoke at Donald Trump’s rally preceding the Capitol riot.
Phone records obtained by the committee contain logs of texts, as well as incoming and outgoing calls.
Guilfoyle claimed in texts that she raised $3 million for the rally, according to ProPublica.

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.

Both Eric Trump and Guilfoyle, who is engaged to Donald Trump Jr., spoke at a January 6 rally held by Donald Trump hours before the Capitol riot and made baseless claims about the 2020 election being stolen. Guilfoyle, a fundraiser for the former president, claimed in text messages two days prior that she raised $3 million for the rally, according to a ProPublica report.

The announcement follows the issuance of additional subpoenas on Tuesday to other members of Donald Trump’s inner circle, including Rudy Giuliani, Jenna Ellis, Sidney Powell, and Boris Epshteyn.
