Trump news today: Ex-president, Don Jr and Ivanka set to testify in New York fraud probe

Jamie Raskin doesn’t say whether the Jan 6 Committee will get Mike Pence to testify

Former president Donald Trump, his son Donald Trump Jr and daughter, Ivanka Trump are scheduled to testify in New York’s civil probe into alleged fraud at their family business from 15 July.

Court documents revealed on Wednesday that New York state attorney general Letitia James and her team of investigators will have to conclude their questioning “by the following week.”

Meanwhile, a former GOP insider tells The Independent that former president Donald Trump will “lose his mind” when he watches the January 6 committee hearings on the Capitol riot on Thursday evening and realizes no one is there to interject on his behalf.

Kurt Bardella also called House GOP leader Kevin McCarthy’s decision to withdraw Republican committee picks a “massive strategic error”.

Trump allies meanwhile are have called the prime time special “disgustingly out of touch”, saying that Americans care more about inflation and gas prices, and no one will watch.

Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton has laid into Fox News for its decision not to broadcast the hearings live on its main channel when every other network will. She tweeted that “Fox News won’t air the January 6 hearings because they prefer their sedition made fresh on-site”.

Senior White House adviser and son-in-law of Donald Trump reportedly began etching his plans to flee the coop before the former president had officially even lost his bid for re-election in 2020, according to The New York Times.

“We’re moving to Miami,” Mr Kushner reportedly told his wife Ivanka Trump, also a senior adviser in her father’s administration, just a little more than 24 hours after the last polls had closed in Alaska at midnight on 4 November.

Trump’s inner circle goes on offense over Jan 6 public hearings

A number of Republicans from Donald Trump’s inner circle have begun what many have called a mass counterprogramming effort ahead of the first public hearings from the January 6 committee, scheduled to begin this week.

The House Select Committee investigating the violent insurrection at the Capitol, which resulted in about 140 officers getting injured and one police officer dying, has conducted its work largely behind closed doors for the better part of a year. On Thursday, however, the bipartisan panel is set to open its first of six hearings during a primetime televised event.

Jan 6 committee members on diverging political paths

The nine members of the House committee investigating the Jan. 6 US Capitol insurrection are on diverging political paths as they prepare for public hearings that could become a defining moment in their careers.

Working in private rooms in a Capitol office building, the seven Democrats and two Republicans have participated in hours of interviews, hearing testimony from members of former President Donald Trump’s family, former Justice Department officials and Trump White House aides. They’ve issued dozens of subpoenas, interviewed more than 1,000 witnesses and gathered tens of thousands of pages of documents in an effort to piece together the worst attack on the Capitol in two centuries.

But as the lawmakers wrap up their investigation, many are at a personal crossroads.
