Donald Trump Jr. on Tuesday met with the congressional committee investigating the Jan. 6, 2021 attack on the U.S. Capitol, according to a report.
Two people familiar with the matter who were not authorized to speak publicly confirmed the interview with The Associated Press.
The younger Trump is of likely interest to the bipartisan House committee because of his proximity to his father on the day of the riot. Donald Trump Jr. was seen backstage at the rally on the White House Ellipse that took place shortly before supporters of the then-president marched to the Capitol and breached the building.
In several social media videos posted at the time of the Jan. 6 attack, Trump Jr. was seen with his now-fiancee, Kimberly Guilfoyle, and other members of his family as his father prepared to make a speech.
