According to the official release, the Committee is seeking information about Trump’s efforts to pressure Mike Pence, the Vice President at the time, to abuse his role in certifying the electoral vote, and prevent Congress from completing the task as required.

Ms. Trump apparently has direct knowledge of the former President’s attempt to persuade Vice President Pence to take action to stop the counting of electoral votes…The Select Committee is also seeking information from Ms. Trump about concerns in the office of the White House Counsel, from Members of Congress, and among the Vice President’s staff about plans to pressure Vice President Pence to overturn the election.

The Committee also hopes to question Ivanka about her father’s actions as the riot was underway, including verification of testimony that she tried to persuade him to stop the attack, as well as other actions he took or neglected, including any orders or actions relating to the deployment of the National Guard, and about his continued efforts to push unsupported claims about the 2020 election after the attack.
