Ivanka Trump said that Mike Pence is a great man after her father denied his request to refuse Electoral College votes which would confirm Joe Biden’s win in 2020. 

After a meeting with President Trump on January 6, 2017, when she was at the Oval Office along with Vice President Mike Pence’s national-security adviser, Lt. General Keith Kellogg. She also made these comments during a phone call with Pence.   

This is just 10 days following Pence’s admission that he hasn’t spoken to Trump in more than a year.

He said that January 6, 2021 had been a difficult day in their marriage. Trump stated that Pence didn’t have the courage to protest the results of the elections during Congress’ certification. 

Jesse Waters from Fox News asked Pence when Trump last spoke to him on Thursday evening. 

Ivanka made the comments after a meeting on January 6 last year when President Trump was in the Oval Office with her and Vice President Mike Pence's national security adviser

Ivanka spoke these words after meeting with President Trump on January 6, 2017, when he was at the Oval Office along with Vice President Mike Pence’s national-security adviser.

Pence replied, “We talked last summer.” It was, as I said, difficult. Jan 6 was difficult. It was a terrible day in the national’s life. 

Pence stated, “I believe I have fulfilled my constitutional duty,” In the days following that, Pence said that he and the president sat down together. It was a conversation that we had about the matter, and it was a discussion. They parted ways amicably.  

Trump said to Pence once again that he had a responsibility to reject Electoral College Votes that would officialize Democrat Joe Biden’s victory in the 2020 Presidential Election. The vice president was not authorized to make this decision in his ceremonial role that day in Congress.

According to testimony from Congress, Trump said to Pence that he didn’t possess the courage or strength to take a difficult decision. Pence, even though Trump had called him a “wimp”, refused to comply with the request and made a lengthy statement stating that he didn’t have any power over the outcome.

Ivanka Trump, the retired Lt. General Keith Kellogg said that Mike Pence was a “good man” after the call had ended.

Kellogg answered, “Yes, that he is.”

The revelation of her comment comes just 10 days after Pence revealed he hadn't spoken to Trump since last summer

Her comment was made just 10 days after Pence said he had not spoken with Trump since last summer.

And on January 31 Trump suggested for the first time that he wanted Mike Pence to overturn the 2020 election when the vice president chaired the joint session of Congress to certify the Electoral College vote count on January 6, 2021. 

Trump pointed to efforts on Capitol Hill to change the Electoral Count Act, including firming up the language to make clear that the vice president is only there to count votes and can’t override the will of the voters. 

Trump stated that Mike Pence had the power to alter the result. He could have won the election, but he chose not to exercise this power. 

As they attempt to put together the narrative about the riots as well as the role of former President Barack Obama in instigating them, the House committee is now looking into what Ivanka Trump witnessed that day. 

Trump supporters made a desperate effort to get him to stop. Many tried to influence his decision through their top supporters, while others sought to direct Trump to his daughter.

While Trump wanted Pence to object to the election certification for President Biden's win, the former vice president saw his role in the certification as largely ceremonial

Trump wanted Pence’s objection to President Biden’s victory, but former Vice President saw his participation in the certification as more ceremonial.

An aide to the committee said that they hope she will soon agree to set a date.

Ivanka Trump is a unique voice that could reach her dad and get him to reconsider his bad choices. Her success has been mixed. 

Her father was the first to have a daughter. She has been extremely quiet since then and she has distanced herself from politics ever since.

However, her close proximity to Trump on Jan. 6, could allow the committee direct access to Trump’s activities during those critical three hours of chaos at Capitol.

‘Ivanka Trump has details about what occurred in the lead-up to and on Jan. 6 and about the former president´s state of mind as events unfolded,’ Rep. Stephanie Murphy, D-Fla, a member of the panel, told The Associated Press.

Although it is unusual for congressional investigators not to target the family members of presidents, her father was a top adviser and she held a position close to the presidency.

'You know, we talked last summer,' Pence said of his relationship with Trump. 'And, you know, I've said many times, it was difficult. Jan. 6 was difficult. It was a tragic day in the life of the nation'

Pence stated that he had spoken to Trump last summer. It was, as I said, difficult. January 6th was hard. It was an awful day in the national life.

Kellogg shared the information with the committee. Ivanka Trump has so far not spoken to the panel, despite her famously high standards of privacy and protections for her image.

These answers may have important repercussions for Donald Trump (who is aiming for a political comeback by 2024), as well for members of the Republican Party that have minimized their role in the uprising.

Multiple requests for comment were not answered by a spokeswoman from Ivanka Trump. In a statement released in January, however, her representative noted that Ivanka Trump was not present at the rally in front of the White House. There, the former president urged his supporters to fight like hell as Congress convened in order to certify the 2020 election results.

The members of the committee want to go beyond these vague statements.

Ivanka Trump joined Rudy Giuliani, Rudy Giuliani, and Kimberly Guilfoyle, hours after Trump had called Pence. They sat under the large tent in support of Trump’s speech.

Reports say she said to aides she was there to help the President calm down and maintain order at the event.

After Trump´s speech, as rioters began to smash through Capitol police barriers and break windows, the former president tweeted: ‘Mike Pence didn´t have the courage to do what should have been done to protect our Country and our Constitution …’

Court testimony says that the tweet only fueled the mob’s fury.

Staffers back at the White House watched with shock what was happening down Pennsylvania Avenue, on TV screens positioned throughout West Wing. Trump became so captivated by the scene that he hit rewind to watch certain moments over again according Stephanie Grisham (former White House press secretary).

According to Grisham (who also served as the chief of staff to Melania Trump), Trump replied, “Look at all of these people fighting for my,” Grisham said. The president wondered at one time why his staff wasn’t more excited than he was as they watched the chaos unfold.

Kellogg stated that the staff asked Trump to immediately address violence at the Capitol. But Trump refused.

Is it possible for someone to get too potus? He must tell the protestors that they should dissipate. Alyssa Faarrah Griffin, an ex-White House communications officer, wrote Ben Williamson to inform him that someone was going to die. Williamson is an aide of White House chiefs of staff Mark Meadows.

“I’ve been trying for thirty minutes. Literally stormed the outer oval in an effort to get Williamson to release his first copy. It´s completely insane,’ Williamson wrote back.

Sen. Lindsey Graham of R.S.C. was once called Ivanka Donald and asked that President Trump ‘ask people’ to leave.

‘We´re working on it,’ she replied.

Trump pointed to efforts on Capitol Hill to change the Electoral Count Act, including firming up the language to make clear that the vice president is only there to count votes and can't override the will of the voters

Trump praised efforts by Capitol Hill to modify the Electoral Count Act. He also highlighted the need to clarify the language in order to emphasize that Trump is there only to count votes.

Staffers then acknowledged that Meadows and Kayleigh McEnany, Kayleigh McEnany, and Kellogg had failed to get Meadows’ attention, that his only hope of getting through was his daughter.

Witnesses claim that Ivanka Trump continued to try to communicate with her father at least twice. Staffers were constantly bombarded daily with texts from Trump allies asking him to end the violence.

“Can he make any statement? I was able to see the tweet. Meadows asked people to please leave the “Capitol”. Fox News’ Sean Hannity sent Meadows a text.

Kellogg strongly advised that the West Wing not request the President to be present in the Press Room, which is where several reporters are waiting.

Former Vice President Mike Pence made clear that he didn't believe he had the power to pick from slates of electors when he chaired the joint session of Congress on January 6, 2021 to count the electoral votes for president of the United States

Mike Pence was the former vice president and stated that he doesn’t think he has the ability to select from electors. He chaired the joint session Congress in January 2021, to count the electoral votes to become the President of the United States. 

“Apparently certain White House staff thought that a live, unscripted media appearance by President in the middle of Capitol Hill violence could make the situation worse,” lawmakers wrote to Ivanka Trump.

The president finally agreed to give a video message. Multiple shots were made, but none of them were used. According to the committee, in each of his initial takes, he did not ask the rioters to vacate.

The final video was released on Twitter at 4:17 p.m. – nearly two hours after Trump´s initial tweet criticizing Pence.

‘This was a fraudulent election, but we can´t play into the hands of these people,’ Trump said in the video. “We must have peace. So go home. We love you; you´re very special.’

Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., the vice chair of the House committee investigating the Jan. 6 insurrection, has said it´s hard to ‘imagine a more significant and more serious dereliction of duty’ than Trump´s failure to quell the riots.

Trump´s last words that day came at 6:01 p.m. when he tweeted that the 2020 election was ‘unceremoniously and viciously stripped away from great patriots who have been badly and unfairly treated for so long.’

Then he said, “Go home with your love and in peace.” This day will be remembered forever.

It has interviewed nearly 500 witnesses and subpoenaed Meadows as well Trump’s private lawyer. They have asked Ivanka Trump for voluntary cooperation.
