Capitol Insurrection Ivanka Trump

Ivanka Trump Likely To Be Subpoenaed By The Jan. 6 Committee: Report

The House Special Committee investigating the Jan. 6 Capitol insurrection made it clear they are referring former Trump administration aide Steve Bannon to the Justice Department for contempt of Congress.

But it turns out that members of former President Donald Trump’s family are also facing being subpoenaed by the committee, according to CNN reporter Jamie Gangel, who noted:

“If [Trump] thinks he can get away with being cute with his press releases, he has another thing coming.”

When host Wolf Blitzer remarked that the committee may subpoena Trump himself, Gangel replied:

“I think it opens up the Trump family. Remember, Ivanka Trump was with her father on January 6th. She was in and out of the Oval Office. I think that there are going to be a lot of people who are fair game who are very close to the former president.”

The former president has urged Bannon and others who have received subpoenas from the committee to ignore them, but that could have serious repercussions if his daughter is also pressed for testimony.

Can you imagine Ivanka being hauled away by federal marshals and taken to jail for refusing to comply with a subpoena? What would her father do then?

Knowing Donald Trump, he’d probably let her stay in lockup and then try to suggest she’s the one who dreamed up the Capitol insurrection.
