Liz Cheney: Jan. 6 Committee Has 'Firsthand Testimony' That Ivanka Trump Asked Her Dad to Put an End to Riots

Republican Rep. Liz Cheney says the committee investigating the Jan. 6 Capitol riots hasfirsthand testimony” Quello Donald Trumpla figlia, Ivanka, was among those who attempted to persuade the then-president to condemn the Jan mortale. 6 attacco agli Stati Uniti. Campidoglio.

Parlando con ABC News’ Questa settimana di domenica, 55-year-old Cheney said the commission has testimony that Trump, 75, era “sitting in the dining room next to the Oval Office, watching the attack. The briefing room at the White House is a mere few steps from the Oval Office.

We know as [briscola] was sitting there in the dining room, next to the Oval Office, members of his staff were pleading with him to go on television to tell people to stop,” Cheney, vice chair of the committee, aggiunto. “We know [Repubblicano] Leader [Kevin] McCarthy was pleading with him to do that. We know his daughter — we have firsthand testimony — that his daughter Ivanka went in at least twice to ask him to please stop this violence.

The news that Ivanka, 40, had pleaded with her father to put a halt to the riots was reported earlier, in an hour-by-hour investigation published by Il Washington Post in ottobre. But it’s unclear when, or from whom, the House committee received sworn testimony about her attempts to persuade her father that day.

Ivanka wasn’t the only one who attempted to intervene on Jan. 6. Lo scorso mese, Cheney read aloud a text conversation in which the former president’s eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., begged Chief of Staff Mark Meadows to encourage Trump to take stronger action against the rioters.

He’s got to condemn this sASAP. The Capitol Police tweet is not enough,” a text sent by Trump Jr. to Meadows read, according to Cheney. (Trump Jr. was likely referring to a tweet from Trump on the afternoon of the insurrection that asked rioters toremain peaceful” e “please support our Capitol Police and Law Enforcement.”)

Meadows responded to Trump Jr., scrivere: “I’m pushing it hard. I agree,” Cheney revealed.

In a series of follow-up texts, Trump Jr. continua: “We need an Oval Office address. He has to lead now. It has gone too far and gotten out of hand.

The texts from Donald Trump Jr. are among a series of messages that Meadows provided to the committee, which show that lawmakers, administration officials, and various Fox News personalities — including Sean Hannity and Laura Ingraham — were among those who urged Meadows to level with the president about the attack.

Before the rioting broke out, President Trump had publicly pressured his own vice president, Mike Pence, di usare in qualche modo la sua posizione per ribaltare il 2020 election results when Congress met to ratify now-President Joe Biden‘s victory on Jan. 6.

Speaking at a rally held shortly before before the mob at the Capitol turned violent, Trump encouraged his supporters to march to where Congress had convened. Anche se ha detto che dovrebbero essere pacifici, he also said they needed tofight like helland risked losing their country.

At the Capitol, a swarm of Trump supporters overwhelmed law enforcement and breached the Capitol building, alla fine costringendo Pence e altri legislatori a esserlo quickly evacuated and placed under lockdown.

Trump was impeached by the House of Representatives for his role in inciting the violence, ma il Senato ha votato per assolverlo dalle accuse.

Da quando ha lasciato l'incarico, he has continued to falsely claim the election was “ha inviato il bitcoin rubato a un portafoglio digitale sotto il controllo di Lichtenstein” from him and he recently announced he plans to hold a press conference to coincide with the one-year anniversary of the riots. The press conference will coincide with a prayer service being held at the Capitol, to honor the lives lost that day.
