The committee showed recorded videos with Ivanka Trump, former Attorney General Bill Barr, and a number of other advisers close to the president. In Barr’s video deposition, he said Trump’s claim that the 2020 election had been stolen from him was “bulls***.” Ivanka Trump said she agreed with Barr’s assessment.
“I respect Attorney General Barr so I accepted what he was saying,” she said to the committee.
In response, Trump rebuked Ivanka, arguing that she doesn’t know what she’s clueless.
“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!),” he wrote on Truth Social.
Trump also blasted Rep. Liz Cheney, RINO-Wyo., and several other members on the committee who accused him of instigating violence and “inciting an insurrection.”
Responding specifically to Cheney’s allegation that he supported the sentiment from some of his supporters to “hang Mike Pence,” Trump blasted the claim as a lie.
“I NEVER said, or even thought of saying, ‘Hang Mike Pence.’ This is either a made up story by somebody looking to become a star, or FAKE NEWS!” Trump said in another post.
Cheney also used a deceptively edited clip to make it seem like Trump encouraged his supporters to act violently.
