Obama’s return to the White House after a 5-year absence

Last week, former Trump White House adviser Jared Kushner appeared before the House select committee investigating the Jan. 6, 2021, insurrection. On Tuesday, Ivanka Trump, Kushner’s wife and another former White House adviser, is the following suit, appearing remotely, according to a person familiar with the committee’s schedule.

The Post’s Jacqueline Alemany reports that Committee Chairman Bennie G. Thompson (D-Miss.) issued a letter in January seeking Ivanka Trump’s voluntary cooperation, citing her presence in the Oval Office on the morning of Jan. 6, 2021, during her father’s phone conversation with Vice President Mike Pence in which President Donald Trump attempted to persuade Pence to disrupt the congressional confirmation of Joe Biden’s victory.

“The Select Committee wishes to discuss the part of the conversation you observed between President Trump and Vice President Mike Pence on the morning of January 6th,” Thompson wrote. “Similarly, the Select Committee would like to discuss other conversations you may have any witness or participated in regarding the President’s plan to obstruct or impede the counting of electoral votes.”

Thompson told reporters on Monday night that the committee has conducted over 800 interviews so far and that more depositions and interviews are to come before public hearings commence in May.
