3 Things To Know Today

1 Ivanka Trump "Invited" To Testify Before Jan 6th Committee

Ivanka Trump is being invited to speak with the committee investigating last year's Capitol riot. Committee Chairman Bennie Thompson did not say whether they will issue a subpoena or ask for voluntary cooperation from the former President's daughter to get her testimony. The panel had previously revealed it was learning more about Ivanka's dealings with her father on the day of the attack at the U.S. Capitol. Last month, Wyoming Representative Liz Cheney told ABC News the panel had "firsthand testimony" Ivanka had twice asked her father to intervene during the Capitol attack. Will she do it? Trump's camp says the former First Daughter is not saying no, but she's not saying yes either. A statement notes she did not speak at the January 6th rally hosted by her father, ex-President Trump. The statement also notes that Ms. Trump tweeted during the attack that "any security breach or disrespect to our law enforcement is unacceptable – the violence must stop immediately – please be peaceful." She first referred to the Capitol rioters as "American patriots," but quickly deleted that reference.

2 High Stakes Biden Meeting With Russia Today

President Biden is again attempting to clean up a remark he made about the tense situation at the Ukrainian border. In advance of a high level meeting set to take place today, the President told reporters that he’s been very clear with the Kremlin about what the reaction will be should Russia step over the line. This, as Biden clarified again his stance after setting off a firestorm for suggesting that a ‘minor incursion’ by the Russians might be okay. Reading from a prepared statement yesterday, he insisted that Russian President Vladimir Putin “has no misunderstanding” about the “severe” economic sanctions that would follow a Russian invasion of Ukraine.” “I’ve discussed in detail with our allies as well as laid out very clearly for President Putin,” Biden offered. “But there is no doubt — let there be no doubt at all — that if Putin makes this choice, Russia will pay a heavy price.”
