In video evidence shared during Rep. Liz Cheney’s opening statement Thursday at the House Select Committee hearing investigating the Jan. 6 Capitol attack, Ivanka Trump, the daughter of the ex-president and his former adviser to the White House, reacted to the lawyer at the time. General William Barr saying the 2020 election was not stolen.

Interviewers asked Ivanka Trump for her reaction to Barr’s statement.

“It affected my perspective. I respect Attorney General Barr, so I accepted what he said,” Ivanka Trump said.

The clip was the first time the committee has featured testimony from Ivanka Trump, although more are expected.

The committee will hold six hearings, where it intends to detail a plot by Donald Trump to void the election that ultimately led to a violent insurgency designed to prevent Congress from certifying the results of the 2020 election.
