Former President Donald Trump doesn’t seem thrilled that the House Select Committee investigating the Capitol riot spoke with his daughter (and former White House adviser) Ivanka Trump this week.

In discussion with The Washington Post, Trump said the panel’s interview with Ivanka was “a disgrace and a harassment,” but insisted he was unaware of the specifics of what was discussed. He said he also didn’t know what his daughter’s husband (and fellow former White House adviser) Jared Kushner told the committee during his six-hour interview, according to the To post.

Trump said he offered both Ivanka and Jared a “privilege” but they declined.

The former president said he had not been contacted by the January 6 committee and “didn’t know what he would do if he was”, To post writing.

“It depends on demand,” Trump remarked.

Ivanka Trump’s Tuesday testimony, which she gave remotely, lasted approximately eight hours. She apparently did not invoke executive privilege or her right against self-incrimination. Committee chair Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.) said the former first daughter wasn’t too talkative, but “answered questions.”

Another committee member — Rep. Elaine Luria (D-Va.) — said last week that Kushner’s testimony was “really valuable” to the committee. Read more on The Washington Post.
