Ivanka Trump was an official aide to her father during his presidency. She was at the White House on the day that the Capitol was attacked and razed by a mob made up of Trump loyalists. Shortly after, the former president delivered an incendiary address telling them to “fight like hell” or they “[wouldn’t] have a country anymore.”

“Given Ms. Trump’s presence in the White House on January 6th, the Select Committee is seeking her knowledge about the former President’s actions related to the deployment of the National Guard to respond to the violence,” According to a press release issued by the commission.
Rep. Bennie Thompson (D.Mississippi), the chair of the Commission, elaborated on the request. She stated that they wanted to know if Trump blocked or ignored requests to quell an attack.
“The Committee has identified no evidence that President Trump issued any order, or took any other action, to deploy the guard that day,” Thompson stated this in his letter to Ivanka Donald. “Nor does it appear that President Trump made any calls at all to the Department of Justice or any other law enforcement agency to request deployment of their personnel to the Capitol.”
The committee also wants to speak with Ivanka about her father’s “state of mind” during the attack, Thompson added.
