Democrats put all of their hopes for maintaining power in Washington, D.C. on the January 6 Committee’s witch hunt.
The Committee’s hearings haven’t exactly gone to plan, though, and now the entire ordeal is threatening to blow up in the Left’s face.
But Democrats are so desperate to say they threw Trump in jail that they now want Ivanka Trump behind bars.
Over the final weeks of the 2020 Presidential Election, and through their exit from the White House, British filmmaker Alex Holder chronicled the Trump family’s experience for his documentary film, Unprecedented.
And now, footage he and his crew shot of former President Donald Trump’s daughter, Ivanka, has been subpoenaed by the January 6 Committee.
Apparently, the left-wing radicals and RINOs on the Committee believe that a few sentences uttered by Ivanka during an interview for the documentary proves that she committed perjury during her deposition for the investigation, and therefore, should be thrown in jail.
At one point in the documentary, Ivanka can be seen explaining to the filmmakers that her father was fighting to ensure every legal vote is counted, and exhausted all of his legal options because he campaigned for the voiceless, and many Americans had concerns about the sanctity of the election.
“I think that, as the President has said, every single vote needs to be counted and needs to be heard, and he campaigned for the voiceless, and I think a lot of Americans feel very disenfranchised right now, and really questioned the sanctity of our elections, and that is not right,” Ivanka told the filmmakers at the time.
“It’s not acceptable, and he has to take on this fight,” she continued. “Look, you fight for what you love the most, and he loves this country and this country’s people, and he wants to make sure that their voice is heard, and not muted, and will continue to fight, until every legal remedy is exhausted, and that’s what he should do.”
Of course, the average American reads that quote and realizes that she’s very simply explaining that her father wanted to ensure that all the reports of voter fraud and nefarious activity in key battleground states were addressed, as millions of Americans became skeptical because said reports were being buried by Democrats and the media.
But apparently, when Democrats read that quote they immediately believe it’s proof that Ivanka lied under oath during her deposition because she told the Committee that she had “accepted” then-Attorney General Bill Barr’s claim that no voter fraud existed whatsoever.
At the time, the January 6 Committee’s lawyers asked Ivanka Trump, “How did that affect your perspective about the election when Attorney General Barr made that statement?”
“It affected my perspective,” Ivanka admitted. “I respect Attorney General Barr. So, I accepted what he was saying.”
And for that simple sentence, Democrats now believe that Ivanka Trump should be thrown in jail.
They seem to be under the impression that her claiming to have “accepted” what Barr was saying had to be a lie because it’s somehow impossible for that to have been true if she also told a documentary that her father was fighting to ensure every legal vote was counted.
If you’re confused by their rationale, it’s because it makes absolutely no sense.
It is entirely possible, despite what the Left and their allies in the Fake News Media claim, for Ivanka Trump to have believed the Attorney General, while also still being a supportive daughter who wanted to be by her father’s side as he simply ensured the election was fair.
The two are not mutually exclusive.
But that won’t stop the radical Left from taking whichever Trump scalp they possibly can.
And if that means throwing Donald Trump’s children in jail simply because the radical Left despises their father, then so be it.
