The White House visitor logs leading up to the January 6, 2021 capitol riot uncover key moments related to the investigation, such as the December 18, 2020 meeting in which Trump met with National Security Advisor Micahel Flynn and outside advisors such as Sidney Powell and Patrick Byrne to discuss a proposal to seize voting machines.
The visitor logs also offer key information on the many guests that Trump hosted during the final stretch of his presidency, including those involved in the planning of the January 6 riot.
In an effort to make the visitor logs available to the public, Politico has compiled a searchable database of White House visitors from December 12, 2020 to January 5, 2021.
The release of White House visitor logs sheds light on crucial moments and individuals involved in the planning of January 6 and Donald Trump’s attempts to overturn the election results.
