Ivanka Trump, the daughter of former US President Donald Trump, was invited to testify before the parliamentary committee investigating the assault on the Capitol on January 6 last year, BTA reports. The summons aims to clarify what role Trump played in the attack on Congress, world agencies reported.
For the first time, a member of the Trump family has been invited to cooperate directly with the investigation. A letter to Ivanka, who was a close adviser to her father when he was president, suggested that she be interviewed on February 3rd or 4th.
“The commission wants to discuss with you the issue of a possible conversation you may have witnessed or participated in about President Trump’s plan to obstruct or hinder the vote count,” the letter said. addressed to Ivanka by Benny Thompson, chairman of the commission.
The commission, which includes mostly Democrats, aims to establish the responsibility of Trump and his entourage in the assault on Congress, which involved hundreds of his supporters as congressmen rallied Democrat Joe Biden’s victory in the November 2020 presidential election.
The commission has already heard nearly 400 witnesses. She wants to publish her conclusions before the mid-term elections, that is, before November 2022. Because if the Democrats then lose their majority in the House of Representatives, there is a risk that the commission will be dissolved.
