Jan. 6 committee requests interview with Ivanka Trump

The committee says it wants to discuss what Ivanka Trump knew about her father's efforts, including a telephone call they say she witnessed

WASHINGTON - The House committee investigating the U.S. Capitol insurrection is asking Ivanka Trump, daughter of former President Donald Trump, to voluntarily cooperate as lawmakers make their first public attempt to arrange an interview with a Trump family member.

The committee sent a letter Thursday requesting a meeting in February with Ivanka Trump, a White House adviser to her father. In the letter, the committee chairman, Rep. Bennie Thompson, D-Miss., said Ivanka Trump was in direct contact with her father during key moments on Jan. 6, 2021, when Trump supporters stormed the Capitol in an effort to halt the congressional certification of Joe Biden's presidential win.

The riot followed a rally near the White House where Donald Trump had urged his supporters to "fight like hell" as Congress convened to certify the 2020 election results.
