Sen. Mike Lee, a Republican from Utah, could be seen handing over various phone records to House impeachment managers.
CNN previously reported that former President Trump first called the personal cell phone of Lee shortly after 2 p.m. ET on Jan. 6. At that time, the senators had been evacuated from the Senate floor and were in a temporary holding room, as a pro-Trump mob began breaching the Capitol.
Lee picked up the phone and Trump identified himself, and it became clear he was looking for Sen. Tommy Tuberville, a Republican from Alabama, and had been given the wrong number. Lee, keeping the President on hold, went to find his colleague and handed Tuberville his phone, telling him the President was on the line and had been trying to reach him.
Tuberville spoke with Trump for less than 10 minutes, with the President trying to convince him to make additional objections to the Electoral College vote in a futile effort to block Congress' certification of then President-elect Joe Biden's win, according to a source familiar with the call. The call was cut off because senators were asked to move to a secure location. Tubervillle has said he told Trump Pence was being evacuated.
Lee said the call when Trump called happened at 2:26 p.m. ET on Jan. 6. This is two minutes after President Trump's tweet attacking Vice President Mike Pence.
House managers maintained that the call happened before the tweet.
