Donald Trump Shares Harsh Words For Daughter Ivanka Over House Committee Testimony

Former President Donald Trump has made his stance on the 2020 election clear. Since his exit from the White House, Trump has ascertained that the presidential election was rigged and the result of voter fraud. But according to a resurfaced memo released by Politico, these claims were investigated by former Vice President Pence's legal team — and the investigation came up inconclusive. The memo was distributed on January 1, 2021, five days before the attack on the United States Capitol

In the memo, Pence's legal team addressed the multiple allegations, including duplicate ballots. "In general, there is strong evidence that state and local election officials committed numerous procedural violations that reduced transparency and/or favored Democrat candidates," the memo read in part, via Politico. "However, most allegations of substantive voter fraud — defined to mean the casting of illegal ballots in violation of prevailing election laws — are either relatively small in number, or cannot be verified."

According to the Associated Press, Attorney General William Barr also confirmed that the election results were valid, citing the lack of concrete evidence. In a shocking turn of events, the former president's daughter Ivanka Trump shared Barr's doubts in the recently released testimony.

Donald Trump discounted Ivanka's testimony and claimed she was checked out after the election

Ivanka Trump conceited that her father's election fraud claims were unlikely during her April 2022 testimony to the January 6th committee, reports Business Insider. Her taped testimony, which was aired during the first January 6 public hearing, revealed that Barr's decision influenced her opinion on the election turnout. "It affected my perspective," she admitted. "I respect Attorney General Barr. So I accepted what he was saying."

Donald Trump was not pleased by his daughter's initial interview with the January 6 commission. Needless to say, now that her surprising comments have come to light, the businessman is fighting back. New York Post reports that Trump turned to Truth Social, his social media platform, to disregard her testimony entirely. 

In his post, he suggested that Ivanka wasn't as invested in the election, writing, "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!)." 

His insinuation that Ivanka wasn't as committed to the election turnout is significant as, up until this point, the Trumps have presented a united front on the voter fraud claims.
