Report: Signs of Deleted Texts Found on Ten Secret Service Staff Phones

Source: Newsweek

“A Secret Service probe found that 10 of its personnel involved in Jan. 6 exchanged several texts around the day of the Capitol riots, but the messages were deleted. The news, an exclusive by CNN, came as a bombshell for the Secret Service, which was investigating its own staff after the agency was accused of not retaining records required by the investigations into Jan. 6. After the Capitol riots, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) inspector general asked 24 members of the Secret Service involved to produce text records from around that day. Only a single text exchange was produced, for an entire period of 30 days (between December 7, 2020 and January 8, 2021). Now, investigators have found that 10 of the Secret Service personnel involved in Jan. 6 deleted several text messages, whose content is still unknown.” (07/24/22)
