WASHINGTON, D.C. — The House select committee investigating the Capitol attack has found sparse call records and gaps in the White House telephone logs from Jan. 6, according to two sources familiar with the investigation.

One source indicated to ABC News that the logs do not reflect all the calls they understand former President Donald Trump was making that day.

Investigators have not uncovered any evidence that records were deleted or changed.

It's public knowledge that Trump used not only his personal cell phone to make calls but also the phones of his aides.

The apparent gaps in the call records are the latest challenge for the committee as they try to paint a complete picture of what Trump was doing and who he was talking to that day.

The call logs obtained by the committee detail incoming and outgoing calls through the White House switchboard.

A spokesperson for the select committee declined to comment.

The phone log hunt was first reported by the New York Times.
