If Ivanka Trump didn’t already regret her decision to pivot from designing discount handbags made in China to working in government, she certainly does now.
The House select committee investigating January 6 is considering issuing her a subpoena after she didn’t respond to its request for an interview last month, insiders say.

The subpoena would force the former first daughter to cooperate with the inquiry into her dad’s failed attempt at overthrowing the 2020 election results or be held in contempt and possibly go to jail.
The subpoena would also be the first time one of Trump’s children would be called to testify against their father, which would no doubt cause a major rift in the family. (BTW, this is precisely why Ann Coulter warned Trump not to hire his kids after he won the 2016 election. Even a broken clock is right twice a day!)

Insiders note that the panel doesn’t plan to subpoena Ivanka as of right now, only that conversations about doing so have begun and that the option is very much on the table should she continue to ignore their request for an interview.
The Guardian reports:
But the fact that members on the select committee have started to discuss a subpoena suggests they believe it may ultimately take such a measure – and the threat of prosecution should she defy it – to ensure her appearance at a deposition on Capitol Hill.
The select committee did not address a possible subpoena for Ivanka Trump at a closed-door meeting last Friday, and the panel wants to give her a reasonable window of opportunity to engage with the investigation before moving to force her cooperation, the source said.

Before the panel subpoenas Ivanka, it would likely inform House speaker Nancy Pelosi of the decision, who we’re pretty sure would be OK with it.
A spokesperson for the select committee declined to comment on the matter. The first daughter, as well, is not commenting.
Last month, Mary Trump predicted that her cousin would eventually flip on her father if she feels it’s in her best interest.
“She knows she has to come down on the right side of things,” she told MSNBC’s Alex Witt. “Or, she’ll continue to stay her father’s ally, and have to see how that plays out.”

Mary added that Ivanka is likely making a “calculation” as to what will “help her in the long run.”
“She’s in a very bad situation because she must understand that if Donald feels it’s necessary, he will stop protecting her.”

Ha ha ha! Istanka must be worried!
I don’t think she’s worried. Several people have ignored the January 6th Committee’s subpoenas and none have been arrested; Steven Bannon and Mark Meadows come to mind.
The January 6th Committee better act quickly as the Republicans will be retaking control of Congress in November and they’ll start their witch-hunting Committees to investigate the members of the January 6th Committee.
steve bannon has been indicted by the doj, has an upcoming trial date, and faces up to a year in prison if convicted.
Wow, the right wing troll is quickly exhausting this screename.
Unfortunately she’ll just do the same exact thing that the rest have done and ignore the subpoena.
I want to see people put in lockup until they agree to testify. You can’t just say no without consequences.
I,m still confused as to how they can say no, would we get away saying F U to a subpoena!! they are the definition of hypocrisy!!! scum
I,m hoping for a summer gift, that they all fall, such a shameless family if we can call them that, the Klan of grifters, I,m amazed the diaper load! of Mar-A-Lardo is still free
If she is forced to face the committee, all she’ll probably do is plead the 5th, but that, in itself, can be seen as a sign of admitting guilt. Maybe, these ones who plead the 5th when questioned need to be reminded what their “Glorious, Imperious Leader” himself once said about pleading the 5th. Maybe a large poster on the wall of the committee chamber?
BarryM youre a complete fool. why dont you try and find some ann coulter site where you can parrot all the bullshit you hear on fox. Just go away.
Only a fool – like you – supports high inflation, the messes in Afghanistan and Ukraine, the failure of Biden to tackle Covid, and the onslaught of illegal aliens over the southern border.
The Republicans will retake power in November; get used to it. lol
Don’t forget that the New York Attorney General is requiring Ivanka, Don the Con and Con Jr. to testify in person in her investigation over their allegedly fraudulent schemes involving their finances. The pot is boiling on the Con family!
Don’t forget the Republicans will be retaking power in November.
those who think the republicans should be back in power are very sad,, go live with Putin you fools
