The parliamentary commission investigating it claims to be at the disposal of a “first-hand testimony” that confirms it just a few days after the first anniversary is fulfilled.
The parliamentary commission investigating the assault on the United States Capitol claims to be at the disposal of a “first-hand testimony” in which it would be confirmed that Ivanka Trump, the daughter of former President Donald Trump, asked her father on several occasions to intervene to stop “violence” carried out by his followers that January 6 in Washington.
This has been confirmed by the vice president of this committee, the disgraced Republican representative Liz Cheney, who confirmed this Sunday night on ABC that Ivanka Trump, at that time one of the former president’s advisers, asked him to intervene .
Along these lines, the president of the commission, Democrat Bennie Thompson, has also intervened in this regard, who has told CNN that Ivanka would have gone up to two times to the White House for her father to stop what was happening at the gates of the Capitol .
“We have important testimony that leads us to believe that the White House would have been asked to do something. We want to verify everything before preparing our report (…). All I can say is that it is very unusual for someone in charge to observe what is happening and do nothing, “said Thompson.
It’s one year
These latest statements come a few days after the first anniversary of the most shameful episode in recent United States history, in which hundreds of followers of former President Trump went to the Capitol to stop the legislative process that certified the Joe Biden’s victory in the November 2020 presidential elections.
The commission in charge of investigating what happened, both the attack and the mobilizations and protests called the previous days, has one year to finish its work, with which the presentation of the conclusions would coincide with the midterm elections of next November. .
Within the commission there are also suspicions of a possible financial fraud committed by Trump and his family in relation to the financing of activities and of those groups that came to Washington to protest.
