Donald Trump’s Switchboard Was Linked To A Certain January 6th Protestor

( Denver Riggleman (R-VA), a former representative, made a startling admission that the relationship between the past Trump administration and the uprising “has to be studied deeper.”

In a clip from an upcoming installment of “60 Minutes,” which is scheduled to show on Sunday night, Riggleman stated that you get a genuine ‘a-ha’ moment when you realize that the White House switchboard had linked to a rioter’s phone while it’s happening.

Riggleman advised the January 6 committee from April through his final year in office as a Republican congressman in 2021.

When host Bill Whitaker questioned Riggleman whether the White House’s contact might have been an accident, the former congressman replied: “When the White House just happened to call numbers, that somebody misdialed a rioter that day, on January 6th? Probably not.”

Despite not knowing who was on the phone at the White House, Riggleman claimed to know the identity of the rioter.

According to Newsweek, neither Trump’s nor the January 6 committee’s representatives have responded to demands for comment.

Bill Kristol, the former chief of staff to former Vice President Dan Quayle, said he placed numerous calls through the employees at the White House switchboard during an earlier Republican Administration and can assure that he never requested them to put him in touch with anyone who was attacking the US Capitol. “But that was a different era and a different Republican party.”

When Riggleman discussed the committee’s conclusions in a CNN appearance in June, he received criticism from the committee.

“Riggleman’s detailed commentary regarding the content of subpoenaed records, our contracts, contractors, and procedures, and your hard work is unsettling,” said House Committee staff director David Buckley in an internal email. Riggleman’s television appearance, he continued, “was in flagrant violation of his employment agreement.”

Riggleman disagreed, claiming he was no longer subject to such agreements because he spoke to CNN only after he left the committee.

The news of the White House phone connection was released a few days before what was supposedly the last January 6 hearing.
