Ivanka Trump Testifies Before U.S. Capitol Riot Committee
WASHINGTON - Former President Donald Trump's daughter Ivanka testified on Tuesday to the U.S. House of Representatives committee investigating the Jan. 6, 2021, riot at the U.S. Capitol, answering questions for several hours, the panel's chairman said.
'She's answering questions. I mean, you know, not in a broad, chatty term, but she's answering questions', Representative Bennie Thompson, the panel's Democratic chairman, said on CNN.
Thompson said her testimony began Tuesday morning and was still ongoing by mid - - afternoon.
Asked if he would describe Ivanka as cooperating, Thompson told CNN, 'She came in on her own, that has obviously significant value. We did not have to subpoena'.
Her husband, Jared Kushner to the Select Committee last week, as the investigation of the attack on the Capitol expands to include close relatives of her former president.
Like her husband, Ivanka Trump met with the committee virtually.
