WASHINGTON -- Ivanka Trump is the daughter of former President Donald Trump. She is currently in discussions with the House panel that investigated the Jan. 6 riot on the U.S. Capitol. They are asking for cooperation in their inquiry.
According to her spokesperson, Ivanka Trump discussed the possibility of appearing in an interview voluntarily.
The letter was sent to Ivanka Trump's oldest daughter in January. It stated that it had evidence that Ivanka Trump "in direct contact" on the day of the riot. The panel said that it also had evidence that Ivanka Trump may have been "in direct contact" with Mike Pence, the former vice president, in order to prevent Congress from certifying the 2020 election results.
In the letter, Keith Kellogg testified that Ivanka tried many times to persuade her father to intervene.
The committee has been intensifying its investigation into the riot and any actions taken by Trump or his allies over the last few months.
The committee issued subpoenas last month to 14 of the alternate voters who claimed that Trump won their election. They also subpoenaed Judd Deere who was the White House press secretary.
The committee also subpoenaed Trump allies Rudy Giuliani and Jenna Ellis to question their involvement in the efforts to reverse the 2020 election results.
