Cell phone records pulled from the days before the Jan. 6 attacks on the Capitol show communication between a member of the conservative group, Proud Boys, and someone who was associated with the Trump White House. 

The FBI has been increasing and intensifying the investigations of the attack by looking at location, cellular and call record data between these individuals before the riots, which led to the discovery of a call between an unnamed person inside the White House and another unidentified member of the far-right group, the New York Times reported. 

The topic of discussion has not yet been revealed. 

Officials working with the investigation explained that the FBI obtained warrants and subpoenas in order to receive information from cell towers around the area. This allowed them to see who was calling who at the time of the attacks and if any information was shared between the rioters and others inside both the White House and Congress.

The Times has reported that FBI investigators haven’t found any contact on Jan. 6 between any of the rioters and those inside Congress, but it led to the finding of this mystery conversation. 

On a separate occurrence, coincidentally just a few days before the riot as well, one of the leaders of the group, Enrique Tarrio, and an associate of the former president Donald Trump, Roger J. Stone Jr., shared a phone conversation whilst Tarrio was in the middle of a protest in front of Senator Marco Rubio’s home in Florida.

Tarrio wasn’t present during the riots because he was arrested on Jan. 4 for an incident that happened in December and Stone told the Times that he had no involvement or prior knowledge of the Capitol attacks. 

As of today, over 300 individuals have been arrested on charges from that day.
