Special counsel Jack Smith has subpoenaed Ivanka Trump and her husband, Jared Kushner. Smith is going after the big fish now. The subpoena for the couple relates explicitly to the special counsel’s probe of any efforts by former President Donald Trump to overturn the election leading up to Jan. 6 when a mob of his supporters attacked the U.S. Capitol.

The New York Times reports:

Former President Donald J. Trump’s daughter Ivanka and his son-in-law Jared Kushner have been subpoenaed by the special counsel to testify before a federal grand jury about Mr. Trump’s efforts to stay in power after he lost the 2020 election and his role in a pro-Trump mob’s attack on the Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, according to two people briefed on the matter.

The decision by the special counsel, Jack Smith, to subpoena Ms. Trump and Mr. Kushner underscores how deeply into Mr. Trump’s inner circle Mr. Smith is reaching and is the latest sign that no potential high-level witness is off limits.

The disclosure about the subpoena comes two weeks after it was revealed that Mr. Smith had subpoenaed former Vice President Mike Pence to testify before the grand jury. Mr. Pence plans to fight the subpoena, invoking his role as the president of the Senate to argue that it violates the “speech or debate” clause of the Constitution.

Ivanka and Kushner testified to the select House committee investigating the Jan. 6 insurrection. She told them she “accepted” what former Attorney General Bill Barr said about the election not being stolen.

“It affected my perspective. I respect Attorney General Barr, so I accepted what he said,” Ivanka Trump testified.

She knew the election wasn’t stolen. They all knew, and for sure, Donald knows, too.
