Donald Trump Jr.'s fiancée, Kimberly Guilfoyle, spent 9 hours talking to the House January 6 committee
Kimberly Guilfoyle, the fiancée of Donald Trump Jr., has met with the January 6 committee.
Guilfoyle was seen arriving for a meeting with the panel on Monday and left after more than 9 hours.
The panel wanted to learn about her conversations with Trump on January 6, 2021.
Kimberly Guilfoyle, the fiancée of Donald Trump Jr., met with the January 6 panel investigating the Capitol riot for nine hours on Monday.
Guilfoyle arrived for a meeting with committee investigators at around 10 a.m. on Monday and left nine hours later, per CNN.
The January 6 panel subpoenaed the former Fox News personality and advisor to former President Donald Trump in March. This subpoena was issued after she backed out of a meeting with the panel in February, claiming that committee members "notorious for leaking information" were present at the meeting without her knowledge.
The committee already has Guilfoyle's phone records, obtained through subpoenas to communications companies.
In a March 3 letter to Guilfoyle, committee chairman Rep. Bennie Thompson said the panel wanted to speak to the former Fox News host about her conversations with the former president on the day of the riot and about her fundraising activities before the "Stop the Steal" Ellipse rally. Guilfoyle claimed to have raised $3 million for the former president's January 6 rally, an event that preceded the violent Capitol riot.
The letter also mentioned comments Guilfoyle made at the rally.
"You told the crowd, 'We will not allow the liberals and the Democrats to steal our dream or steal our elections,' and were filmed backstage prior to your speech telling people to 'Have the courage to do the right thing. Fight!'" it said.
"Ms. Guilfoyle met with Donald Trump inside the White House, spoke at the rally that took place before the riot on January 6th, and apparently played a key role organizing and raising funds for that event," said chairman Rep. Bennie Thompson in a statement at the time.
Thompson added that the subpoena would compel Guilfoyle to testify after she "backed out of her original commitment to provide a voluntary interview."
To date, more than 800 people have spoken with the House January 6 committee.
Guilfoyle is the third Trump family member to have spoken to the panel in the last weeks. Trump's daughter, Ivanka Trump, and her husband, Jared Kushner, both voluntarily appeared before the January 6 panel for a combined 14 hours of closed-door testimony.
