Ivanka Trump, the daughter of Donald Trump and a former White House adviser, said she accepted that there was no evidence of fraud and that her father had lost the 2020 election.

A clip of her testimony was played during the House hearing on the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol. She was asked in a deposition what impression she had when then-Attorney General William Barr told Trump and his advisers there was no such fraud.

“It affected my perspective,” she said. “I respect Attorney General Barr so I accepted what he was saying.”
