After the House select committee investigating the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol riot included part of Ivanka Trump’s testimony in its first public session Thursday night, former President Trump slammed her.
During the session, Ivanka Trump was asked about former Attorney General William Barr’s opinion that the 2020 presidential election will not be rigged.
Donald Trump has alleged that the election was “rigged” and stained by extensive voter fraud for years. There was no major proof of widespread voter fraud, according to Barr, as well as state and federal elections officials.
Ivanka Was Out?
When asked if Barr’s words altered her opinion of what transpired in the election, Ivanka Trump stated in the video, “It affected my viewpoint.” “Because I respect Attorney General Barr, I took what he said at face value.”
On Friday, the former president claimed that his daughter was “checked out” in the days after the 2020 election, and that she did not “analyse” the results as he did.
“Ivanka Trump was not involved in reviewing or analysing the election results. Trump wrote on his Truth Social platform, “She had long since checked out and was, in my judgement, merely attempting to be courteous to Bill Barr and his position as Attorney General (he sucked!).”
Is There Any Evidence?
In a televised hearing, the House select committee attempted to show that the elder Trump’s plot to preserve power and reluctance to recognise the results of the 2020 election resulted in the bloodshed on January 6, 2021.
The session used testimony and never-before-seen video footage from the day of the attack on the Capitol to pin the responsibility directly on Trump.
“On the morning of January 6, President Trump’s purpose was to stay president of the United States despite the legitimate conclusion of the 2020 election and in violation of his constitutional duties to cede office,” said Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.), vice chair of the select committee.
