"Not very talkative": Ivanka Trump testifies before U-Committee

“not very talkative”
Ivanka Trump testifies before U-Committee

The investigation committee into the storming of the Capitol is running out of time: After the congressional elections in November, Republicans could block a parliamentary inquiry. Now Trump’s daughter Ivanka testifies. He is said to have overheard his father over the phone trying to prevent his rival’s choice from being substantiated.

The daughter of then-President Donald Trump, Ivanka testified before a parliamentary inquiry committee into the storming of the US Capitol in early 2021. The interrogation of the 40-year-old began Tuesday morning and continued through the afternoon, committee chair Benny Thompson told CNN. Ivanka Trump isn’t very “talkative,” but she does answer questions. Thompson insisted that a subpoena was not necessary.

Ivanka Trump was invited by the investigative committee for a voluntary survey in January. His father’s then-official aide was at the White House on January 6, 2021, when hardline Trump supporters stormed Congress.

According to the investigative committee, she saw a phone call in which her father allegedly urged his deputy Mike Pence not to allow Congress to testify that day to Democrat Joe Biden’s victory in the November 2020 presidential election. According to the U-Committee, during the Capitol storm, several White House officials asked the president’s daughter to persuade her father to stop the activities of his supporters.

On January 6, Trump called on his supporters to march to the Capitol and fight “whatever it is” in an incendiary speech. The right-wing populist also reiterated his often dismissed allegations that massive electoral fraud robbed him of a second term. The storming of the Capitol with five dead caused panic around the world and is considered a dark day in the history of American democracy.

The Parliamentary Committee of Inquiry seeks to uncover the role played by Trump and his entourage in the storming of the Capitol. The lawmakers have already spoken to nearly 800 witnesses – including Ivanka Trump’s husband Jared Kushner – and viewed nearly 90,000 documents. Time is of the essence: Biden’s Democrats could lose their majority in the House of Representatives to Trump’s Republicans in midterm congressional elections in November. After this the U-Committee should be closed.

The inquiry committee will first give its report. Lawmakers may also call on the Justice Department to launch a criminal investigation into Trump. In early March, the panel accused the former president of “criminal conspiracy” in a court document. A federal judge later ruled that the 75-year-old had committed a criminal offense by allegedly attempting to obstruct a session of Congress testifying to Biden’s election victory.

Trump is still going strong among Republicans because he is so popular with a conservative base. He regularly brings up a possible new presidential candidacy in 2024.
