Ivanka Trump has been called to testify about the Capitol riot. The United States House of Representatives January 6 committee that is investigating last year’s Capitol riot announced Thursday that it has called Ivanka Trump, daughter and adviser to former President Donald Trump, to testify.

According to Efe, she was called to provide information on the former president’s activities before and during that tragic day. As detailed by the committee in a statement, Ivanka Trump “was in direct contact with the former president at key moments” on January 6, 2021.

It should be remembered that on January 6, 2021 a mob of Trump supporters stormed the Capitol to prevent the ratification of the current president, Joe Biden’s, victory. “The committee requests that Ivanka Trump provide information for the investigation into the January 6 violence and its causes,” the committee said.

According to information gathered by the members of the committee, Ivanka Trump was in the Oval Office when Donald Trump called then Vice President Mike Pence to demand that he join his plan to stop the ratification of the current president of the United States, Joe Biden, according to Efe.

In addition, several officials in the White House reportedly, went to Ivanka Trump on “multiple occasions” to ask her to help dissuade her father from his plans and to encourage him make a call to stop the violence on Capitol Hill. Five people died and about 140 agents were injured during the assault, Efe recalled.

“The committee has identified no evidence that President Trump issued any order or took any other action to deploy the National Guard” on Capitol Hill, the statement said. The committee was created by the speaker of the House of Representatives, Democrat Nancy Pelosi.

The January 6 committee is made up of a majority of Democratic congressmen, although there are two Republican members, Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger, who are at odds with former President Donald Trump. Last Tuesday, the committee called four former Trump allies to testify.

Among those, former mayor of New York Rudy Giuliani stands out. If they refuse, they could be held in contempt, as has happened so far with three former Trump aides: his former chief of staff Mark Meadows, former assistant attorney general Jeffrey Clark, and his former adviser and campaign manager Steve Bannon, who also faces criminal charges.

The daughter of the former president has reappeared after being out of sight for months. And it is worth mentioning that her official Instagram account, which she used regularly while her father was in the White House, had been idle since May of last year, causing all kinds of speculation.

Her last post before disappearing showed the former presidential adviser receiving her second dose of the coronavirus vaccine. Now Trump’s well-known daughter has returned to social media with a message of support and unity for the new year.

“Thank you to our many incredible partners and volunteers who helped feed tens of thousands American families across Idaho and New York with fresh, nutritious, locally sourced produce and dairy this holiday season,” Ivanka said in the Instagram message.

On Wednesday, the Supreme Court rejected a request by Trump to keep some 700 documents about the assault on the Capitol hidden. This opens the door for them to be delivered to the committee, Efe points out. This is not the only scandal that has surrounded the former president in recent days.
