Ivanka Trump will testify before the January 6 committee this afternoon.
The Guardian confirmed that former president Donald Trump’s oldest daughter, and former senior White House adviser, will speak to the panel virtually.
Her testimony will come after that of her husband and fellow former presidential adviser, Jared Kushnerwho spoke to the panel for more than six hours last week.
After Kushner’s testimony, Jamie Raskin, a Maryland Democrat and a member of the committee, told the Guardian: “There’s a momentum to this process when there’s cooperation. When people see that others are doing the right thing, it gives them the courage to do the right thing.”
donald trump has admitted he did not win the 2020 election.
“I didn’t win the election,” he said.
The admission came in a video interview with a panel of historians convened by Julian Zelizer, a Princeton professor and editor of the Presidency of Donald Trump: A First Historical Assessment. The interview was published on Monday by the Atlantic.
Describing his attempts to make South Korea pay more for US military assistance, Trump said Moon Jae-inthe South Korean president, was among the “happiest” world leaders after the 2020 US election put Joe Biden in the White House.
“By not winning the election,” Trump said, “he was the happiest man – I would say, in order, China was – no, Iran was the happiest.
,[Moon] was going to pay $5bn, $5bn a year. But when I didn’t win the election, he had to be the happiest – I would rate, probably, South Korea third- or fourth-happiest.”
Trump also said “the election was rigged and lost”.
