“As far as we know, this is the first time the committee has issued a subpoena targeting one of the Trump children, and it really underscores just how aggressive the committee is willing to be in its investigation,” Gangel said.
On Tueday, CNN special correspondent Jamie Gangel broke the story to “The Situation Room” anchor Wolf Blitzer.
Both Eric Trump and Guilfoyle, who is engaged to Donald Trump Jr., spoke at a January 6 rally held by Donald Trump hours before the Capitol riot and made baseless claims about the 2020 election being stolen. Guilfoyle, a fundraiser for the former president, claimed in text messages two days prior that she raised $3 million for the rally, according to a ProPublica report.
Obtained from communication companies, the records disclose logs of incoming and outgoing calls, as well as their time, length, and date, according to CNN. The records also contain a log of text messages but do not disclose their content.
The announcement follows the issuance of additional subpoenas on Tuesday to other members of Donald Trump’s inner circle, including Rudy Giuliani, Jenna Ellis, Sidney Powell, and Boris Epshteyn.
