Donald Trump has reprimanded his daughter and former White House aide Ivanka after she denied the former president’s allegations of fraud at the 2020 US election.
Mr Trump said his daughter was not involved in the review of the election results and had “long checked out”.
The comments were made after listen to the uprising on Capitol Hill on January 6, 2021.
The House panel investigating the hack showed video testimony from former US Attorney General Bill Barr, who called the election fraud allegations “bullshit” and said he found no evidence. any evidence to support that claim.
His argument seems to have convinced Mr. Trump’s daughter.
“I respect Attorney General Barr. So I accept what he is saying,” Ivanka Trump said in her videotaped statement.
Mr. Trump, in a statement on social media, appeared to dismiss his daughter’s evidence.
“Ivanka Trump is not involved in reviewing or researching election results,” he wrote on Truth Social, the platform he helped found after he was banned on Twitter.
“She checked out a long time ago, and in my opinion, she was just trying to be respectful of Bill Barr and his position as Attorney General (he sucks!).”
Mr. Trump also made comments disparaging Mr. Barr, calling him “the weak and fearful Attorney General who is always ‘played by the Democrats’ and threatened and afraid of being impeached.”
Mr. Trump went on to say: “How do you not get impeached? Doing nothing, or saying nothing, especially about the Election is clearly RIGGED & STOLEN, or in other words, the Crimin of the Century. !”
There is no evidence to support Mr. Trump’s false claim that the 2020 election won by Joe Biden was marred by fraud or other irregularities.
The suit was dismissed by multiple courts, state election officials and members of his administration.
The panel has been investigating for months into the uprising last year, when Trump supporters stormed Capitol Hill while Biden’s victory was being certified.
On the first day of six days of public hearings before a House select committee on Thursday, they said Mr Trump had led a “broad, multi-step conspiracy to overturn the presidential election”. and that the uprising was the culmination of that “attempted coup.”
The console displayed a never-before-seen 12-minute graphic video about revolution.
The hearing saw public statements from other key Trump administration figures, including Ivanka Trump’s husband Jared Kushner, Vice President Mike Pence and his chief of staff, and General Mark Milley .
