The left and the media attempted to pit Ivanka Trump against her father during the January 6 committee inquisition Thursday and former President Donald Trump responded by making it clear that their efforts had failed.
Former Attorney General Bill Barr allegedly described Trump’s claims of election fraud as “bullsh*t” during his video deposition.
During Barr’s testimony, he reportedly said he had three separate conversations with Trump about the 2020 election results.
“One was on November 23. One was on December 1, and one was on December 14, and I’ve been through sort of the give and take of those discussions. And in that context, I made it clear I did not agree with the idea of saying the election was stolen and putting out this stuff, which I told the President was bulls***,” he reportedly said.
“I respect Attorney General Barr. So I accepted what he said — was saying,” Ivanka Trump told the committee.
The Ivanka Trump clip has gotten a lot of attention, but its inclusion was entirely gratuitous and clearly meant simply to embarrass her—a committee purportedly devoted to saving our democracy shouldn’t be so petty and should do better

Trump commented on Friday, downplaying his daughter’s response.
“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),” Trump wrote on his social media platform Truth Social.
The former president is very close with his daughter and her statement has little to do with the protest that day one way or the other. Her testimony was reportedly approved of by her father who surely expected that her words would be seized upon by the left. His response would be seized upon as well in a further attempt to divide and disrupt:
They played five seconds of Ivanka and now this dude's like, "I've never met my daughter and I'm insulted by the implication" https://t.co/VEM6TpJmAv

NEW: Donald Trump just attacked Ivanka’s credibility in a new statement: “Ivanka Trump was not involved in looking at, or studying, Election results. She had long since checked out…”

BREAKING: Donald Trump hits back at daughter Ivanka, says she “was not involved in looking at, or studying, Election results” and had “checked out” after she told the Jan. 6th committee that she “accepted” that the election was NOT stolen. RT IF YOU DON’T BELIEVE THE BIG LIE!

“The Democrats hit pay dirt with Barr, he was stupid, ridiculously said there was no problem with the Election & they left him alone. It worked for him, but not for our country!” Trump said, slamming Barr on Truth Social.
Ivanka Trump was dragged in front of the House committee in April and was forced to testify for eight hours on events surrounding the protest on Jan. 6 against the certification of the election.
Rumors have circulated in the press that she was one of the White House staff who went to the Oval Office multiple times on January 6th, asking her father to tell his supporters to leave the Capitol. Proof of that allegation has not been produced so far.
The Democrats' 2022 slogan, "DONALD TRUMP IS BAD AND ORANGE" is not going to overcome 8.6% inflation, an inanimate president, and a stagnating economy.

The Daily Mail is reporting that a book that is set to come out, “details how Ivanka and her husband Jared Kushner, who served as a senior counselor to Trump, were preparing for their post-White House lives shortly after the election and Trump’s false claims he won the contest.”
The book purportedly contends that on Nov. 5, 2020, within 24 hours of “Trump first publicly proclaiming he was the true winner, Kushner turned to Ivanka and told her, ‘We’re moving to Miami.” The book is titled, “The Divider: Trump in the White House, 2017-2021,” and is written by New York Times reporter Peter Baker and New Yorker reporter Susan Glasser.
“No matter how vociferously Mr. Trump claimed otherwise, neither Mr. Kushner nor Ivanka Trump believed then or later that the election had been stolen,” the book claims, quoting people close to them but not naming names in true leftist media style.
A clip of Kushner’s testimony was also played during the hearing on Thursday. He was grilled by the panel for six hours in March.
Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) quizzed him over alleged threats from Trump’s White House counsel to resign concerning the former president’s conduct.
“Jared, are you aware of instances where Pat Cipollone threatened to resign?” she asked Kushner.
“Like I said, my interest at that time was on trying to get as many’ pardons done as possible,” Kushner replied.
“And I know him and the team were always saying, we are going to resign, we are not going to be there if this happened, if that happens. So I kind of took it up to be just whining, to be honest with you,” he remarked.
Does anybody really think that the January 6 primetime special tonight changed hearts and minds? It will fill precisely one news cycle — and it will shift zero votes come November, mainly because we all were alive for January 6 and remember it quite vividly.

This hearing may be fascinating for reporters, but I will be shocked if it changes minds.
After the first 35 minutes, just 1 of my 11 students is paying attention. #January6thCommitteeHearings

On Truth Social, Trump denied he said Mike Pence should be hanged for not supporting his claim he won the election. He still contends he was the actual winner of the election and millions of Americans agree with him. Trump also hammered lawmakers for not investigating voter fraud in the election.
“I NEVER said, or even thought of saying, ‘Hang Mike Pence,'” he wrote on Truth Social. “This is either a made up story by somebody looking to become a star, or FAKE NEWS!”
Cheney accused Trump of saying otherwise during the hearing, “Aware of the rioters’ chants to ‘hang Mike Pence,’ the president responded with this sentiment: ‘Maybe our supporters have the right idea.’ Mike Pence ‘deserves’ it.”

“Those who invaded our Capitol and battled law enforcement for hours were motivated by what President Trump had told them: that the election was stolen, and that he was the rightful president,” Cheney said, dripping vitriol during the hearing.
“President Trump summoned the mob, assembled the mob, and lit the flame of this attack,” she said venting her unbridled hatred for the former president.
“The so-called ‘Rush on the Capitol’ was not caused by me, it was caused by a Rigged and Stolen election,” Trump responded.
