Washington — They were stripped of their White House background, their power and their masks.
In a short video clip, Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump appeared at the beginning of a half-dozen hearing held by the House of Representatives investigating an attack on the Capitol on January 6.
At first it was Mr. Trump. Former Attorney General William P. spoke in a gentle voice, apparently aware that the video could be released someday, and said there was no widespread scam affecting December 1, 2020. An election held three weeks ago that stated that he believed in Barr’s words.
“It influenced my point of view,” Trump quietly said, looking into the camera for a recorded interview that wasn’t done directly. “I respect Attorney General Barr, so I accepted what he said — I was saying.”
Despite what her father, President Donald J. Trump, claimed, and according to some White House aides working with her, she said he was in the 2020 elections. Despite the fact that he did not try to alleviate his false claim that he had won. She continued to travel with him when he publicly dissipated his claims.
Next is Mr. Kushner. In his video, Commission Vice-Chairman Liz Cheney and White House adviser Pat A. Chiporon are making increasingly eccentric efforts to maintain Trump’s power. I was pressured if I knew I was threatening to resign because of.
“As I said,” Kushner, who was rarely heard in public during his father-in-law’s presidency, said, “My interest at the time was to get as much presidential amnesty as possible.” rice field. Mr. Kushner repeatedly inserted himself into his process of amnesty, prompting complaints from legal experts and some of his colleagues. He added, “I knew the team was always saying,’Oh, I’m going to resign. If this happens, I’m not going to go there.'” So I thought to be honest with you, I was just whining. “
After the video was over, Wyoming Republican Chainy, who sounded moody, spoke to the hearing room. “Whispering,” she said. “There is a reason for those who serve in our government to swear to the Constitution. As our founding father recognized, democracy is vulnerable. People in public trust are in action. We have a duty to keep it in order to move forward when we need it. In our country, we do not swear to individuals or parties. “
Mr. Kushner’s words infuriated Mr. Siporon’s former colleague. Many of them complained to reporters and exchanged messages with each other as hearings were made that the former president’s son-in-law was “arrogant.”
No two in Mr. Trump’s White House have positioned themselves as prominently as his daughter and his son-in-law. For over four years, the two have been careful about their image.
The aides lived in Washington’s expensive Kalorama district and were afraid to stand on the other side of the couple who hosted the supper for the city’s political elite.
The video revealed that both knew things weren’t going well inside the White House. However, according to more than half a dozen former Trump advisers, both tried to stay away from that period, but neither tried to separate Mr. Trump from his obsession with maintaining power.
Instead, they left the job to paid staff and they continued to wait for the family to intervene more actively. Immediately after the election day, most aides tried to avoid the Oval Office and were afraid to listen to Mr. Trump’s vent. They also wanted to avoid the worst scenarios. It’s an instruction from Mr. Trump, who may have been illegal and may have been involved in the investigation.
