House Select Committee Subpoenas Phone Records For Eric Trump and Kim Guilfoyle

CNN broke the news late Tuesday that the January 6th House Select Committee has issued subpoenas to obtain the phone records of Eric Trump and Kimberly Guilfoyle, who recently became engaged to Donald Trump Jr.

The phone records obtained by the committee are part of a new round of call detail records subpoenaed from communication companies, multiple sources tell CNN. These records provide the committee with logs that show incoming and outgoing calls, including the date, time, and length of calls. The records also show a log of text messages, but not the substance or content of the messages.

The Select Committee earlier on Tuesday issued four new subpoenas to the legal team led by Rudy Giuliani which attempted to overturn the results of the 2020 Presidential election by claiming vast voter fraud that was never proven.

CNN reports that this is apparently the first time the Select Committee has targeted a member of the Trump family, marking a significant escalation of the investigation into Trump’s role in the January 6 insurrection. The decision to subpoena communication records involving the Trump family underscores the aggressive tack the committee is taking as it races to complete its investigation while battling Trump in court over access to documents from his administration.

The records may also help the committee flesh out the text messages and phone records it has received from others, like former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows, as well as fundraisers and rally organizers, CNN reports.
