On Tuesday evening, Ivanka Trump concluded an eight-hour deposition with the House Committee investigating the Capital riots that occurred on January 6, 2021. Her testimony was requested a little over a month ago by the Committee chair, Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-Mississippi). Trump spoke with the committee over video conference, and her testimony comes five days after her husband Jared Kushner testified with the committee for around six hours.

When questioned about the former First Daughter’s conduct, Thompson told Capitol Hill reporters, “She’s answering questions. I mean, you know, not in broad, chatty terms, but she’s answering questions.” Ivanka could have a valuable perspective on the events, as she was present in the White House with her father Donald Trump as what began as a “Stop The Steal” protest event disputing the results of the 2020 Presidential election, became a violent invasion of one of the country’s bureaucratic centers.

Trump and Kushner are so far the only Trump family members who have voluntarily testified before the House committee. Thompson was also quick to point out, in contrast to other former Trump administration officials and other allies of his, that Ivanka “came in on her own,” instead of refusing to appear and require subpoenas to respond to questioning. “That obviously has significant value,” he said.

The congressman remained tight-lipped as to whether Ivanka’s testimony provided them with any key “new information,” about developments in the White House during the riots, but her perspective was surely valuable as a former member of her father’s inner circle.

Other members of Trump’s family are in the sights of the House Committee in a variety of ways. Kimberly Guilfoyle, the partner of Donald Trump Jr., has been subpoenaed by the Jan 6 Committee because she “backed out of her original commitment to provide a voluntary interview.” Guilfoyle was a key organizer who also appeared on stage during the “Stop The Steal,” rally, along with Trump’s other son Eric Trump. The panel has also subpoenaed Eric for his phone records on the day of the riots.
