White House Patched Through Call To Jan. 6 Rioter During Violence, Tech Expert Says

The White House patched through a phone call to a rioter during the Jan. 6, 2021, violence at the U.S. Capitol, a tech adviser chillingly revealed in an excerpt released Friday from an upcoming “60 Minutes” interview.

“You get a real ‘a-ha’ moment when you see that the White House switchboard had connected to a rioter’s phone while it’s happening,” Denver Riggleman, former senior technical adviser for the Jan. 6 House select committee, told CBS host Bill Whitaker.

As for the communication via the White House switchboard, “I only know one end of that call,” said Riggleman, who didn’t provide details. “I don’t know the White House end, which I believe is more important. But the thing is the American people need to know that there are … connections that need to be explored more. From my perspective … being in counterterrorism, if the White House, even if it’s a short call and it’s a connected call, who is actually making that phone call? Was it an accidental call?” When the White House just happened to call numbers, that somebody misdialed a rioter that day, on Jan. 6? Probably not.”
