Turns out the Trump White House January 6th call logs don’t just have gaps – they may have been outright falsified

Yesterday it was reported that the Trump White House official phone call logs from January 6th have a stunning seven hour gap in them, matching up with the timeframe before and during the Capitol siege. This suggested that Donald Trump was using a private cellphone for the numerous documented phone calls he had with his political associates and Republican members of Congress. It also raised questions about whether Trump’s official White House phone line could have gone silent for seven hours, even if Trump was trying to avoid using it; wouldn’t people have been trying to call him on the official line?

Now we’re getting confirmation that the January 6th White House call logs are indeed inaccurate. The Guardian’s Hugo Lowell is reporting today that Donald Trump used his official White House phone line to call Republican Senator Mike Lee – and yet this call is not in the call logs.

There are only two possible explanations for this. One would be that an honest error was made in the call logs while Donald Trump was plotting a coup, which would be the kind of absurdly unlikely coincidence that strains credulity. This leaves us with the other explanation, which would be that the call logs were outright falsified.

This gets even more suspicious when you consider that when Trump called Mike Lee, he was actually trying to call a different Republican Senator, Tommy Tuberville. Tuberville ultimately voted against certifying the election results that night, making him a de facto participant in the plot to overthrow the government.

This gives the January 6th Committee a clear path to demand that both Mike Lee and Tommy Tuberville testify about their end of that now-infamous phone call. We’re guessing the committee already has Lee’s and Tuberville’s own phone records from that day. And now that it’s been established that the Trump White House January 6th phone logs are at the least inaccurate and apparently falsified when it comes to this one phone call, it’s a good guess that it’s not the only one. The upcoming January 6th Committee public hearings are going to be nothing short of explosive.
