Multiple sources told CNN that the phone records that were obtained are part of a new round of call records requested from communication companies. These records include incoming and outgoing calls, the dates they were made, the duration and the times of the calls.
These subpoenas appear to be the first that have been issued by the Jan. 6 committee targeting members of the Trump family, CNN noted.
Both Eric Trump and Guilfoyle were involved in the Trump campaign’s “Stop the Steal” efforts following the 2020 presidential election, with both having spoken at the pro-Trump rally that preceded the attack on the Capitol. One source told CNN that the committee’s interest was linked to Eric Trump’s fundraising efforts for “Stop the Steal.”
When reached by The Hill, a representative for the House select committee on Jan. 6 declined to comment on the reported subpoenas.
There is so far no indication that either Eric Trump or Guilfoyle themselves have been subpoenaed by the committee for interviews or documents, nor is there any indication that any records having to do with other adult children of the former president have been subpoenaed.
It was also reported on Tuesday that the committee has subpoenaed Trump allies who were also involved in the “Stop the Steal” effort, targeting members of the former president’s core legal team including Rudy GiulianiRudy GiulianiHochul raises .6 million since launching gubernatorial campaign DirecTV declines to renew OAN contract Trump abruptly ends NPR interview MORE, Jenna Ellis, Sidney Powell and Boris Epshteyn.
