Lindsey Graham Implicates Ivanka Trump In Jan 6th Coup Attempt

Donald Trump’s inner circle seems to be turning on each other in the wake of the texts handed over to the House Select Committee investigating the Capitol riot by former Trump White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows before he ceased his cooperation with them.

The texts the Committee shared with the public revealed that Fox News hosts and Trump’s eldest son Donald Trump Jr were among those who frantically texted Meadows on January 6th and urged him to get Trump to call off his supporters and tell them to go home. Others implicated by the text also include Rep. Jim Jordan, who was in contact with both Trump and Meadows as the siege on the Capitol was raging.

Now Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) has implicated Ivanka Trump in the plot to prevent the 2020 Presidential election from being certified on January 6th in a new interview with CNN’s Manu Raju. “Sen. Lindsey Graham said he didn’t text with [Mark] Meadows on Jan. 6,” Raju tweeted, “but told me he spoke with Ivanka Trump to deliver a message to her dad. He said he wanted then-President Trump to ‘tell his people to leave.'”

Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) had read a text from Donald Trump Jr. to Meadows, then the White House chief of staff, begging him to ask his father to call off the mob, but it’s not clear what actions — if any — his sister took as Graham reportedly begged her to intercede.

“You need to get these people out of here,” Graham told her, according to the Washington Post. “This thing is going south. This is not good. You’re going to have to tell these people to stand down. Stand down.”

The Post had reported that Ivanka left her office in the West Wing, where she saw TV footage of the riot, and went to the president’s dining room, where her father was watching the news coverage and had sent a message of support for law enforcement: “Please support our Capitol Police and Law Enforcement,” Trump tweeted at 2:38 p.m. “They are truly on the side of our Country. Stay peaceful!” Ivanka retweeted another one of her father’s statements, which aides reportedly didn’t think was sufficient under the circumstances, although she quickly deleted that after she was criticized for referring to the rioters as patriots.

Ivanka reportedly tried to get him to use more forceful language to calm his supporters, and thought she had convinced him at one point, but Meadows later called to say that wasn’t the case. “I need you to come back down here,” Meadows told her. “We’ve got to get this under control.”
