Former President Donald Trump publicly rebuked his daughter Ivanka Trump following a clip of her displayed by the House select committee investigating the Jan. 6 riot during a public hearing Thursday evening.
The former president stressed that his daughter was not in the loop on his campaign’s investigations of 2020 election fraud claims and had not thoroughly studied the matter. In the clip, Ivanka Trump said she respected former Attorney General Bill Barr and trusted his judgment that the 2022 election wasn’t rigged.
Ivanka Trump said in recorded video testimony shown Thursday during the House panel’s first public Jan. 6 hearing that she believed then-Attorney General Bill Barr's analysis on election integrity. https://t.co/9umy2cVtUe pic.twitter.com/fG4vQ8BgRs

“Ivanka Trump was not involved in looking at, or studying, Election results. She had long since checked out and was, in my opinion, only trying to be respectful to Bill Barr and his position as attorney general (he sucked),” Trump wrote on Truth Social, a social media platform he has attempted to establish as an alternative to Twitter.
Ivanka Trump’s comments, made during a closed-door deposition, were highlighted during the panel’s prime-time public hearing. Members of the panel and Trump critics pointed to the clip, in which she was pressed about Barr’s dismissal of claims of rampant voter fraud touted by the then-president and some of his allies, as evidence that members of Trump’s inner circle knew his claims about rampant voter fraud were unfounded.
