Ivanka Trump Negotiates Voluntary Testimony House Jan. 6 Committee

Ivanka Trump, the eldest daughter of former President Donald Trump and one of his senior White House advisers, is in talks about cooperating with the House Select Committee investigating the Jan. 6 Capitol riot.

“Ivanka Trump is in discussions with the committee to voluntarily appear for an interview,” her spokesperson told The New York Times on Feb. 23.

Citing sources, the New York Times reported that Trump has not requested that Ivanka defy the committee’s requests, which was what he has done with other former top aides.

In a letter sent to Ivanka in January, the Committee said it had evidence that she was “in direct contact” with the former president on the day of the riot.

The Committee further said that it also had evidence that Ivanka may have “direct knowledge” of her father’s efforts to persuade former Vice President Mike Pence to block Congress’ certification of the 2020 election results.

“The Select Committee wishes to discuss the part of the conversation you observed between President Trump and Vice President Mike Pence on the morning of January 6th. Similarly, the Select Committee would like to discuss any other conversations you may have witnessed or participated in regarding the president’s plan to obstruct or impede the counting of electoral votes,” the Committee wrote.
