Jan. 6 texts, data deleted from Secret Service, Pentagon phones lead to accusations of cover-up

Evidence of all the information erased, wiped, deleted and otherwise obscured by members of former President Donald Trump’s administration in the days, weeks and months after the riot that unfolded at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, is now apparently under scrutiny by the House select committee hearings investigating the failed insurrection.

Text messages and other data were wiped from the phones of Secret Service agents, despite Congressional and government watchdog requests to keep evidence from that day. Senior Pentagon officials involved in responding to the attack had their government-issued phones “wiped” as part of what the Pentagon called a standard process for departing employees. Top aides, including former acting secretary of Homeland Security Chad Wolf and former acting deputy secretary Ken Cuccinelli, had their electronic devices wiped in the same process.

“The same mindset that would seek sweeping pardons is likely the same that would engage in a cover-up,” said Ryan Goodman, a former Defense Department lawyer who chronicled multiple deletions surrounding the Jan. 6 attack. “All of the data points currently align with a cover-up as the most likely explanation.”

The House committee is continuing to probe for more evidence related to the Jan. 6 insurrection, including seeking deleted texts, to add to the hours of witness testimony, reams of documents and immersive graphic displays already presented at the hearings. Staff for the panel declined to comment for this story.

Trump aides and advisers have denied any wrongdoing.

But the apparent attempt at obfuscating the evidence has been impossible to ignore. When the Jan. 6 committee hosted its “season finale” last month, it focused on the “187 minutes” — the more than three hours that elapsed after Trump finished his speech to supporters on the Ellipse near the White House and then finally called off the rioters.

White House call logs and the president’s daily diary for much of that stretch of time were empty, and Trump’s photographer at the White House was told “no photographs” during that period as he sat glued to Fox News watching the riot unfold. But, as the committee detailed, Trump was on the phone extensively with Rudy Giuliani, one of his lawyers at the time, and was even lobbying senators, as they were being evacuated, to try to overturn his election loss.

Investigators have been able to use documents from various court cases and even public interviews to fill in gaps in the timeline of that day. But breakthroughs sometimes seem to have been almost accidental.

One of the greatest caches of information came from former Trump chief of staff Mark Meadows before he stopped cooperating with investigators. And that doesn’t account for the papers he burned in the White House after meeting with one of the top lawmakers who helped coordinate the insurrection, Rep. Scott Perry, R-Penn.

This week, a unexpected trove of information came to light during the defamation trial of longtime conspiracy theorist and Jan. 6 coordinator Alex Jones, when it was revealed that Jones’s lawyers accidentally sent two years of text messages from his cellphone to Mark Bankston, a lawyer representing the parents of a boy killed in the Sandy Hook school shooting in Newtown, Conn. Bankston said the Jan. 6 committee had requested the messages and related documents.

Feds include this passage in new court filing in Capitol riot case of Joshua Doolin: 

"On the morning of January 6, 2021, while at the rally, Doolin sent a text message to an associate stating “I wouldn’t mind dying with my family storming the capital [sic] on my birthday!”

Big delay in sentencing date for high-profile Jan 6 defendant Kevin Seefried, who paraded the Confederate flag at Capitol.

Sentencing pushed back from Sept 2022 to Jan 20, 2023 (more than two years after the riot)

WATCH: Jan. 6 rioters came within feet of Pence, new evidence shows | Jan. 6 hearings

The House committee investigating the Jan. 6 insurrection on June 16 laid out a timeline on how former Vice President Mike Pence was evacuated to a secure location within the U.S. Capitol as rioters were overtaking the building.

The committee laid out evidence that there was not much distance between rioters who had breached the Capitol and the security personnel getting the vice president to a more secure location. This happened minutes after Trump sent out a tweet criticizing Pence for not taking action to overturn the election results that were in the middle of being tallied to certify Joe Biden's presidential victory.

Pence and his staff made it to the secure location as the insurrection was underway, "Barely missing the rioters a few feet away," the committee laid out. The rioters were heard chanting "hang Mike Pence" will breaching the Capitol.

The hearing was the third of several planned by the Jan. 6 committee that focused on Trump’s efforts to pressure former Vice President Mike Pence to reject Congress' official count of Electoral College votes on the day of the attack. In the year since its creation, the committee has conducted more than 1,000 interviews, seeking critical information and documents from people witness to, or involved in, the violence that day.

The committee postponed a hearing scheduled for June 15 that was meant to focus on Trump's efforts to replace Attorney General Bill Barr, who did not support his claims of voter fraud after the election.

DC fed judge slamming the door on Jan 6 defendant "change of venue" request:

"Of course there will be jurors in DC who are familiar with the events of Jan. 6 and some of the more high-profile prosecutions that have followed. But prominence does not necessarily produce prejudice".

Judge has rejected yet another request by a Capitol riot defendant to delay trial due to "ongoing publicity" of House Jan 6 Select Committee hearings.

Judge says Doug Jensen's defense argument about potential prejudice is a "dubious proposition".

Jan. 6 hearing examines Trump's 187 minutes at White House as riot unfolded | July 21

The House Jan. 6 committee conducted a public hearing Thursday to examine what former President Donald Trump was doing for 187 minutes — from when rioters descended on the Capitol to his videotaped statement urging them to go home. "The mob was accomplishing President Trump's purpose, and he did not intervene," said Rep. Adam Kinzinger, one of the committee members leading the hearing. The committee has continued to lay out evidence this summer, showing Trump encouraged his supporters to descend on the Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, after peddling false claims that the 2020 presidential election was stolen.
