The Jan. 6 committee made public nearly 2,000 Social Security numbers belonging to high-profile visitors to the White House in December 2020, according to a Washington Post report.
The Social Security numbers were included in a spreadsheet buried within the “massive cache” of records from the committee’s work. The data was part of the White House visitor logs published by the committee.
While many Social Security numbers were redacted, the Post reported that around 1,900 of them were not.
Those whose Social Security information was made public include South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem (R) and her family, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R), South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster (R), former Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar, and former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson.
