The January 6th Committee concluded its business only days before the new Republican-controlled House took over, publishing a bevy of documents for public consumption and referring both President Trump to the Department of Justice for criminal prosecution.

When the committee published documents detailing the findings of its investigation, they also leaked the social security numbers of roughly 1,900 people who visited the White House during Trump’s tenure as President.

Some of the people who’s social security numbers aren’t redacted from the documents are high-profile politicians and judges, including South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem and her family, as well as a district judge that visited the White House.

After the Government Publishing Office saw the mistake, they took the documents off of their website while they look for other personally identifiable information of people mentioned.

When the House Jan. 6 committee released hundreds of documents from its investigation online at the end of the year, it inadvertently made public nearly 2,000 Social Security numbers belonging to high-profile individuals who visited the White House in December 2020, according to a report.

The Washington Post reported Friday that the leaked Social Security information was included in a spreadsheet buried within the “massive cache” of records from the committee’s work. Social Security numbers belonging to at least three members of Trump’s cabinet, a few Republican governors, and several Trump associates were reportedly compromised. The data was part of the White House visitor logs published by the committee.

While many Social Security numbers in the logs were redacted, the Post reported that around 1,900 of them were not. The Government Publishing Office (GPO), which was responsible for publishing the file, does not appear to have notified any of the individuals whose private information was released, the report said.
