The possibility of “hiding” files would be evaluated

What happened to the seven hours of calls from Donald Trump omitted from the White House records during the storming of the Capitol on January 6, 2021? The documents delivered to the committee investigating the facts reflect a gap of seven hours and 37 minutes in calls made or received by the then president from the United States. This is indicated by information obtained by The Washington Post and CBS. According to these media, there is no entry in the White House files since the president’s phone from 11:17 a.m. to 6:54 p.m. local time. During that day, hundreds of supporters of the president stormed the seat of the United States Congress. That day a session was held to ratify the victory of Democrat Joe Biden in the 2020 presidential elections. Trump did not recognize the victory of his rival. The Washington Post and CBS have reported that the US National Archives have handed over the investigation into the capture of the Capitol 11 pages of White House records, the official newspaper of the president and the call files of the switchboard of the presidential mansion. That seven-hour blackout contradicts reports that the then president would have held various conversations with his allies during the altercations. Two people close to the legislative investigation have told The Washington Post and CBS that the committee is trying to find out if Trump communicated that day through other channels. would also be investigated the possibility of “a cover-up” by the White House from the phone records of that fateful day.
