Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner, the daughter and son-in-law of and former aides to former President Donald Trump, have been subpoenaed as part of the investigation into the January 6th attack on the Capitol. According to reports from multiple sources, the subpoenas were issued by the special counsel, who is leading the criminal probe.
The subpoenas were issued after investigators reportedly uncovered new evidence that Kushner and Trump played a significant role in the events leading up to the insurrection. The couple is expected to provide testimony and documents related to their involvement in the Trump administration’s efforts to overturn the 2020 presidential election.
The investigation into the Capitol attack has been ongoing for over two years, and this latest development marks a significant escalation in the probe. It’s unclear what specific information investigators are seeking from Kushner and Trump, but the subpoenas suggest that they are now key targets in the investigation.
Kushner and Trump were both senior advisers to President Trump and were heavily involved in his administration’s policies and actions. In the aftermath of the Capitol attack, many have questioned their role in promoting Trump’s false claims of election fraud and whether they played a part in inciting the violence that unfolded on January 6.
The subpoenas come as the investigation into the Capitol attack has intensified in recent months. Dozens of individuals have been arrested and charged in connection with the violence, and investigators continue to pursue leads and gather evidence.
Kushner and Trump have yet to comment publicly on the subpoenas, and it’s unclear whether they will comply with the special counsel’s requests. However, the subpoenas suggest that investigators are taking a serious look at the couple’s actions in the lead-up to the Capitol attack and that they believe Kushner and Trump may have valuable information to contribute to the ongoing investigation.
The investigation into the Capitol attack is one of the most significant criminal probes in recent history, and it’s likely that more subpoenas and charges will be issued in the coming months as investigators continue to unravel the events of January 6.
