Speaking to CNN after his testimony to the committee, Holder said the panel wanted to know more about the excerpts from the interview with Ivanka Trump, the daughter of former President Donald Trump and a former senior House adviser. Blanche, for her upcoming docuseries, which seems to contradict what she told the closed-door panel.

In a short December 2020 clip obtained by CNN, Ivanka Trump told the filmmaker, “As the President has said, every vote should be counted and should be heard. He campaigned for the voiceless.”

“I think a lot of Americans feel very disenfranchised right now and really question the sanctity of our elections,” she adds in the excerpts. “It’s not fair. It’s not acceptable. And he has to take on this fight. Look, you’re fighting for what you love the most. And he loves this country, and he loves the people of this country. And he wants to make sure their voice is heard and not drowned out and will continue to fight until all legal avenues are exhausted, and that’s what you should be doing.

CNN has reached out to Ivanka Trump for comment.

The 2020 interview came days after then-Attorney General William Barr publicly said there was no evidence of widespread voter fraud in the election. Under oath, Ivanka Trump later told the Jan. 6 committee that Barr’s assessment “affected my view” and that she “agreed with what he was saying.”

Holder told CNN on Thursday that the committee was particularly interested in footage of his interviews with Ivanka Trump that was not included in the documentary.

“The first part of Ivanka Trump’s reaction to her father’s position on the election is in the documentary, but there is another part of it that was not included in the documentary and they were interested in his whole…article on that particular topic is pointing,” he said.

The filmmaker told CNN that the panel “wanted to understand when this particular interview took place and how it happened. … A number of people seem to think there’s some sort of inconsistency between what she told the committee and what she said. tome.”

Holder’s “Unprecedented” three-part docuseries about the 2020 election will be released on Discovery Plus, which is owned by parent company CNN, later this summer. The documentary includes never-before-seen footage of the Trump family on the campaign trail and their reactions to the election results.

Trump and his allies have yet to react publicly to the news that Holder has been subpoenaed by the committee and to the revelation of what was said in the interviews currently in the possession of the panel.
