Ivanka Trump Said Dad Must ‘Keep Fighting’ For Election Despite Testifying Accepting 2020 Results: Movie Claims

Ivanka Trump wanted her father to continue battling the 2020 election results well into December, new documentary footage has revealed, contradicting her testimony at the recent January 6 hearings that she readily accepted Donald Trump’s election loss.

The former president’s daughter wanted Trump “to continue fighting until all legal remedies are exhausted,” she told a film crew in mid-December, as part of a yet-to-be-released documentary. The New York Times reports.

“I think, as the president has said, every vote should be counted and heard, and he campaigned for the voiceless,” Ms Trump said of her “handling” her father’s election conspiracies, according to the report. Time† “And I think a lot of Americans right now feel very, very powerless, and really question the sanctity of our elections, and that’s not right, it’s not acceptable.”

This runs counter to Ms. Trump’s testimony earlier this month that she endorsed the finding of the Trump administration’s Attorney General Bill Barr shortly after the election that there had been no meaningful electoral fraud and that Joe Biden’s victory was legit.

“It affected my perspective,” Ms. Trump told the Jan. 6 special committee in her recorded testimony. “I respected AG Barr and accepted what he said.”

the independent has reached out to Ms. Trump for comment.

The interview is part of a series of footage by filmmaker Alex Holder that has been turned over to the Congressional Committee investigating the events of January 6.

Mr. Holder interviewed Donald, Ivanka, and Eric Trump, as well as Jared Kusher and Vice President Mike Pence in the days around the end of the 2020 election, conversations that will be released in an upcoming series called Unparalleled this summer.

The British filmmaker is expected to be interviewed by Congress on Thursday.

During the January 6 hearings of this month, Ivanka Trump distanced himself from Donald Trump’s efforts to undo the 2020 election.

She told the committee about how her father beat up Mike Pence in a “heated” phone call on January 6.

Julie Radford, a former Mrs. Trump chief of staff, said she told her that “her father had just had a disturbing conversation with the vice president.”

Ms. Radford said Ms. Trump said her father called Mr. Pence “the P word.”

Mr Trump, for his part, has rejected his daughter’s testimony about the feverish post-election season.

“Ivanka Trump was not involved in viewing or studying election results. She had long since checked out and was, in my opinion, just trying to be respectful of Bill Barr and his position as Attorney General (he was worthless!),” the former president wrote Friday on his social network Truth Social.

Earlier this year, an eyewitness before the Jan. 6 commission testified that on Jan. 6, Ms. Trump herself had twice urged her father to “stop the violence.”
