(TargetLiberty.org) – On January 20, the January 6 select committee sent a letter to Ivanka Trump, requesting she voluntarily speak to them about a conversation she heard between her father, former President Donald Trump and his vice president. On February 23, the New York Times reported Ms. Trump is “in discussions” about her appearance in front of the House committee.
If she meets with the commission, she will be the first in the Trump family to do so of their own volition.

The group investigating the events surrounding the attack on the Capitol in 2021 requested her presence because former Vice President Mike Pence informed them she asked her father to ask his supporters to stop the breach. In addition, they believe Trump’s daughter may have had conversations, been a witness, or participated in plans to stop Pence from counting the electoral votes on January 6.
Although her spokeswoman confirmed Ms. Trump was discussing the possibility with the committee, there’s no confirmation on when or if she will appear for an interview. The House select commission showed interest in speaking to anyone who had contact with the former president before and during the January 6 riot.
