Donald Trump Jr. is reportedly set to meet soon with the House Select Committee investigating last year’s Capitol riot.
The former president’s son’s voluntary appearance would come after his sister Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner, both White House advisers, spoke with the House selection committee.
Trump Jr., 44, was due to meet with the panel in the coming days, according to ABC News.
The committee is in possession of text messages sent by the Trump Organization executive branch to former chief of staff Mark Meadows during the riots, which appeared to show White House officials were concerned about the violence unfolding in the Capitol.
“He has to judge [the riot] ASAP,” Trump Jr. Meadows wrote in a text message, according to panelist Sen. Liz Cheney.
“I’m trying,” Meadows replied. “I agree.”
“We need an address in the Oval Office,” Trump Jr. wrote. “He needs to lead now. It has gone too far and gotten out of control.”
Trump Jr.’s fiancé, Kimberly Guilfoyle, complied with a subpoena and spoke to investigators for the second time earlier this week after breaking off an initial voluntary meeting.
Guilfoyle was grilled about her role in organizing and raising funds for the White House rally that preceded the violent revolt, an event at which she spoke alongside former President Donald Trump.
Hundreds of witnesses had already testified before the panel, including more than a dozen Trump associates, officials said.
The nine-member committee voted unanimously earlier this month to hold former aides Peter Navarro and Dan Scavino on contempt of Congress charges for refusing to obey a subpoena.
The panel, made up of seven Democrats and two Republicans, had claimed in a court filing before releasing its findings that Trump was conspiring to “defraud the United States.”
