In a comment that conflicted with her father's attempts to overturn the 2020 election results, Ivanka Trump reportedly showed admiration for Mike Pence in a private conversation hours before the vice-president certified Joe Biden's victory on Jan. 6.

The Washington Post reported in July that Donald Trump had scorned Pence over the phone for his decision to follow through with the certification process. Overhearing the conversation, Ivanka Trump turned to Pence's national security adviser, retired Lt. Gen. Keith Kellogg, and quietly said, "Mike Pence is a good man."

Kellogg replied: “I know that. Let this ride. Take a deep breath. We’ll come back at it.”

Ivanka Trump then sought to convince her father to reconsider the situation.

The Post had also reported that on the morning of Jan. 6, Ivanka Trump said: “This is not right. It’s not right.”

What followed was a mob of Trump supporters descending on the Capitol. In the aftermath, over 700 people have been arrested for their roles in storming the building.

The Post report had shed light on the relationship between Ivanka Trump and Donald Trump in the waning days of the administration. Ivanka Trump has long been considered a top confidant for her father. She served as a White House advisor and Donald Trump has often spoked glowingly of her.

But Ivanka Trump has taken a low profile since her father's term ended and while Donald Trump has continued to peddle the false claim that voter fraud denied him a victory in 2020.

A House committee investigating the Jan. 6 riot has sought Ivanka Trump's account of what took place. Some lawmakers are convinced that she has special insight into the events of Jan. 6.

“Ivanka Trump has details about what occurred in the lead-up to and on Jan. 6 and about the former president’s state of mind as events unfolded,” Rep. Stephanie Murphy, D-Fla., a panel member, told the Associated Press this week.

It is still unclear if Ivanka Trump can provide the committee with important specifics. In January, the committee asked her to voluntarily cooperate with its investigation.

When the House committee first started to consider hearing from Ivanka Trump, her representative released a statement ensuring that she does not support any illegal behavior.

“Any security breach or disrespect to our law enforcement is unacceptable,” the statement read.

The Post reported that Ivanka Trump “decided to attend [the rally] only because she had hoped to calm the president and help keep the event on an even keel."

Once the riot began, multiple White House staff attempted to get in contact with Donald Trump. Some have said that Ivanka Trump was the only one who had direct contact with him. Her testimony does state that she made at least two “tenacious” attempts to tell her father to “please stop this violence.”
