Every Trump Family Member Who's Testified to Jan. 6 Committee

Several Trump family members have joined the growing list of former Trump administration officials who have testified before the U.S. House committee investigating the January 6, 2021, Capitol riot.

At least three of the former president's relatives have appeared in front of investigators to provide their accounts of the day's events as the panel continues its probe into Donald Trump's possible role in the attack on the Capitol last year.

Ivanka Trump, her husband Jared Kushner and Kimberly Guilfoyle, the fiancée of Donald Trump Jr., have all interviewed with the committee—a departure from the approach of non-familial Trump advisers, who have refused to comply with the investigation, citing instructions from the former president himself that those conversations are protected by "executive privilege."

On Wednesday, it was reported by Politico that Donald Trump Jr. met with the committee a day earlier. Newsweek has not been able to independently verify the meeting.

Investigators were expected to question the former president's eldest son about text messages he sent to former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows during the Capitol riot, in which he reportedly urged his father to make a statement condemning the violence.

Lawmakers on the committee have revealed that the accounts from Ivanka Trump and Kushner have corroborated other testimony saying the then-president had been advised to call off the mob at the Capitol before the building was breached.

"They kinda supported the fact that the President was told he had to do something to stop the January 6 insurrection. That he had to be public with it; he had to be direct," committee Chairman Bennie Thompson told CNN earlier this week, adding that the combined depositions helped investigators "fill in a lot of the gaps."

Last month, Ivanka sat through an eight-hour interview just days after Kushner appeared before the committee with "really valuable" testimony.

Investigators were hoping Ivanka would be able to provide insight into "what occurred in the lead-up to and on January 6 and about the former president's state of mind as events unfolded."

Guilfoyle, who advised the former president's 2020 reelection campaign, also met with the House committee in April, two months after she and her lawyers abruptly ended a voluntary virtual meeting over frustration with the committee's interview format.

According to a letter announcing the committee's subpoena to Guilfoyle, she allegedly met with the then-president on January 6 before speaking at the "Save America" rally, where she repeated his claims of election fraud in the 2020 election.

This week, Thompson expressed skepticism over the willingness of Trump family members to testify, given that other former officials have gone to great lengths to defy the committee's subpoenas.

Meadows, former advisers Steve Bannon and Peter Navarro, and former deputy chief of staff for communications Dan Scavino have been held in contempt of Congress for their refusal to comply.

"I think it's ironic that [Trump] would tell some people not to come and they follow his direction and get held in contempt of Congress," Thompson was quoted by CNN about the Trump children's compliance with the committee.

The House committee has interviewed more than 800 witnesses in its investigation and is expected to hold public hearings next month.
