Prior to the January 6th insurrection, Donald Trump spent weeks firing up his supporters. Come to Washington DC on January 6th, the then president encouraged, it’s going to be a wild time.
Since then, though, Trump and the GOP have done everything they can to prevent any kind of investigation into that day. A Tuesday night report from Rolling Stone helped outline exactly why that might be true.
Hunter Walker writes that Kylie Kremer, an organizer of the rally had purchased untraceable burner phones prior to the event. She paid for these devices with cash.
The report continues:
“Three sources said Kylie Kremer took one of the phones and used it to communicate with top White House and Trump campaign officials, including Eric Trump, the president’s second-oldest son, who leads the family’s real-estate business; Lara Trump, Eric’s wife and a former senior Trump campaign consultant; Mark Meadows, the former White House chief of staff; and Katrina Pierson, a Trump surrogate and campaign consultant.”
A March for Trump team member further told Rolling Stone, “When the planning for the event on the Ellipse was happening, she needed burner phones in order to communicate with high level people is how she put it.”
