Jared Kushner, Trump’s son-in-law, has testified on the 2021 Capitol attack in a session lasting more than six hours.

The son-in-law of former US President Donald Trump, Jared Kushner, testified for more than six hours behind closed doors on Thursday, March 31, before the US congressional committee investigating the attack on the United States Capitol that took place on January 6, 2021.

NBC television, citing an anonymous source in the room, said Kushner appeared virtually and was “cooperative and friendly”.

Kushner, who is married to Trump’s daughter Ivanka, served as a senior adviser to his father-in-law during his time at the White House and is the first member of the Trump family and the highest-ranking official to testify before the committee.

It has not yet been revealed what questions he was asked and what his answers were.

The committee investigating the attack on the Capitol was created by the speaker of the House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi, a Democrat, and is made up of mostly Democratic members of Congress. There are, however, two Republican members, Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger, who are at odds with Trump.

Its committee’s mission is to investigate why the attack occurred, who was responsible and what can be done to prevent another similar event from taking place in the future.

On January 6, 2021, about 10,000 people – mostly Trump supporters – marched to the United States Capitol in Washington and about 800 people stormed inside the building to prevent the ratification of Joe Biden’s victory over the Republican candidate in the November 2020 election. Five people were killed and about 140 officers were assaulted.

      The person who should be investigated is heading the investigation. Nutty Pelosi and Kamala was the person who stood the most to gain by those supposed ‘attacks’ at the Capital. Someone needs to check her financial records and investigate Kamala too since she is the one who funded the release of ANTIFA members from jail after the destruction from their riots in places like Portland and Seattle. Don’t suppose ANTIFA owed her a favor and she called on that favor??? Isn’t it funny that the supposed ‘attacks’ gave Nutty the ammo she needed to go after Trump for another impeachment trial? Funny too that the people who supposedly put the pipe bombs around the building were never caught despite cameras, police, and FBI on the premises. Trump asked Pelosi to provide thousands of National Guardsmen to be present when he heard ANTIFA was going to show up. That was weeks before his rally. She refused. No one wants to talk about the fact that FBI agents were there pretending to be Trump supporters and telling people to go into the Capital building. Capital police actually removed the barriers and welcomed the fake supporters in! No one wants to talk about the FACT that ANTIFA was there dressed as Trump supporters and were the ones smashing windows etc. This was an orchestrated b.s. ‘attack’ and the REAL supporters were being peaceful or peacefully protesting, and in fact were trying to stop ANTIFA members from damaging the building when they realized who they were. This is a case of the fox investigating who broke into the hen house! LAUGHABLE
