The messages were deleted after his office requested them, according to the inspector general for the Department of Homeland Security, which is in charge of monitoring the agency.
The finding was made during the watchdog's investigation into the deadly siege last year and is probably going to be relevant to the investigation being conducted by the House Select Committee looking into the attack.
The Intercept broke the news initially.
Inspector General Joseph Cuffari wrote to top that "the Department informed us that many U.S. Secret Service (USSS) text messages from January 5 and 6, 2021, were erased as part of a device-replacement program."
The Secret Service's chief of communications, Anthony Guglielmi, refuted the IG's assertion.
The claim that the Secret Service purposefully deleted text messages after receiving a request is untrue, according to Guglielmi, who released a statement. In fact, whether it be through interviews, documents, emails, or texts, the Secret Service has been fully cooperative with the OIG.
According to the spokesman, as part of a multi-month migration plan, the agency started to reset its mobile phones in January 2021. According to the agency, messages weren't requested until the subsequent month. It also denied any allegations that the agency hadn't given the watchdog's investigation its full cooperation.Follow me on FB and Twitter! Follow @TheDKJR
