Ivanka Trump testified for hours on Tuesday to the congressional committee investigating the 6 January attack on the US Capitol.
Ivanka Trump, Former Senior White House Adviser, testified for nearly 8 hours before the Select Committee investigating the January 6th Capitol riots.
Ivanka Trump was called in to answer questions regarding her whereabouts and activity on January 6th.
The congressional committee asked Ms. Trump to testify on a “range of critical topics,” including her alleged comments after Former President Trump’s phone call with Vice President Mike Pence on the morning of the Capitol attack.
Ivanka was reported to be in the West Wing on January 6th when the attacks occurred. Other White House Staff testified to the committee that they urged Ms. Trump on several occasions to ask her father to stop the riots.
Ivanka is reported to implore her father to condemn the capitol attacks.
"She's answering questions. I mean, you know, not in a broad, chatty term, but she's answering questions," Representative Bennie Thompson, the panel's Democratic chairman, told reporters at the Capitol.
When the Chairman was asked if Ivanka Trump was cooperating, Thompson told reporters, "She came in on her own, that has obviously significant value. We did not have to subpoena."
The committee’s top chairman noted Ms. Trump did not invoke her right to remain silent unlike other witnesses who have appeared before the committee.
Ivanka Trump’s appearance followed a six-hour testimony by her husband, Jared Kushner, who was also a White House aide. Sources close to the committee said Kushner was cooperative.
