Ivanka Trump ends 8 hours of testimony in Capitol riot investigation

April 7, 2022: -Ivanka Trump testified for around eight hours Tuesday to the select House committee investigating the January 6 Capitol riot that began after her father, former President Donald Trump, spent weeks claiming he was deprived of a second White House term due to the widespread ballot fraud.

Ivanka’s testimony, conducted through a remote video hookup, ended around 6 p.m. ET.

“She answers questions,” said Rep. Bennie Thompson, D-Miss., the committee’s chairman, about Ivanka, a senior White House advisor during her fathe8r’s presidency. She was in the West Wing on the day of the riot.

“I mean, not in broad, chatty terms, but she’s answering questions,” Thompson told reporters on Capitol Hill.

Ivanka Trump testified five days after her husband, Jared Kushner answered questions from the committee for over six hours.

Kushner was a senior advisor in the Trump White House and is the only other family relative to have testified before the committee other than his wife.

The panel was investigating the riot by Trump supporters on January 6, 2021, and then-President Trump’s actions related to counting certified electoral votes by Congress that day, which was to confirm the election of President Joe Biden.

Thompson has noted that the committee didn’t have to issue a subpoena to Ivanka Trump, as it has had to do for several other Trump White House veterans and other allies of the former president, some of whom have refused to testify.

“She came in on her own. That has huge value,” Thompson said. Asked by reporters if Ivanka Trump is providing “any new information. New insights” in her testimony, Thompson quipped in reply: “Good try.”

The committee sent Ivanka a letter that said the panel had evidence that she was “in direct contact” with her father on January 6.

“Testimony obtained by the Select Committee indicates that members of the White House requested your assistance on multiple occasions to intervene to persuade President Trump to address the ongoing lawlessness and violence on Capitol Hill,” that letter said.
