The committee has not confirmed the alleged statement of Ivanka Trumpannounced by NBC television and Politico magazine.
Congressmen are interested in “any conversation” she witnessed or participated in, especially a phone call from donald trump on January 6 in the morning. It is believed that on that day he tried to force Vice President Mike Pence to stop counting the votes that would validate Biden’s victory in the November 2020 elections.
“You were present in the Oval Office and witnessed at least part of this telephone conversation,” Bennie Thompson, head of the committee, said in January.
