The January 6th committee is asking President Trump’s older daughter to voluntarily cooperate with the partisan committee.
• In a letter to Ivanka and her lawyers, they seek information on her father’s efforts to convince Vice President Mike Pence to prevent the certification of the 2020 election.
• The letter to Ivanka read: “One of the president’s discussions with the vice president occurred by phone on the morning of January 6th,” it went on to say, “You were present in the Oval Office and observed at least one side of that telephone conversation,”
• A spokeswoman for Ivanka Trump stated that she learned of the public letter but didn’t indicate that she would cooperate with the partisan group or their investigation.
• The spokeswoman reminded the committee that Ivanka did not speak at the event. The spokeswoman also pointed out that Ms. Trump sent out the following tweet “any security breach or disrespect to our law enforcement is unacceptable. The violence must stop immediately. Please be peaceful.”
• The bipartisan committee also wants to ask Ivanka what were her interactions with her father on calling off the rioters and if she reiterated to him, he should convince them to go home.
• The committee said in a statement – “Testimony obtained by the committee indicates that members of the White House staff requested your assistance on multiple occasions to intervene in an attempt to persuade President Trump to address the ongoing lawlessness and violence on Capitol Hill,”
• The committee also wants information if White House staff was communicating with outside sources like Trump Jr., a slew of Fox News hosts and politicians to try to persuade then- President Trump to stop insisting that the election was stolen.
