Multiple sources told Rolling Stone that Kylie Kremer, organizer of the rally that took place in DC’s Ellipse Park, had an attendee buy three burner phones a few days before January 6. Kremer said it was “of the utmost importance” that the phones are bought for cash, a source, who was a member of the March for Trump team, told the magazine.
Kremer kept one of the phones, while another was reportedly given to his mother, Amy Kremer, who was also an organizer of the rally. Sources could not say to whom the third was given.
According to Rolling Stone, the phones were used to communicate with high-ranking members of Trump’s inner circle, including his son.

Speaking of when Kylie Kremer bought the phones, the March for Trump member said: “It was then that the event was being planned at the Ellipse, she needed burner phones to communicate with high-level people, so she put it. “
When The Hill requested comment, representatives for Donald Trump, Eric Trump and Kim Kremer did not immediately respond to the Rolling Stone article.
Rolling Stone reported last month that Trump White House officials and many of his Republican allies had been involved in planning for the Jan.6 rally, including representatives.

Meadows, who was subpoenaed by the House Select Committee on January 6, was “100 percent informed of what was going on,” according to the rally planners. The committee recently demanded to know if Meadows was using a private cell phone on January 6 and has asked where his text messages are from that day.
