Donald Trump Jr’s fiancée Kimberly Guilfoyle, who worked on former President Donald Trump's 2020 campaign, met with the committee investigating the Jan. 6, 2021 US Capitol riot Monday.

According to Daily Mail, she had initially agreed to be interviewed in late February, but she abruptly ended a virtual interview with the committee members after realizing Democratic lawmakers were on the call.

A source told the Associated Press that the 53-year-old arrived Monday morning at the federal office building on Capitol Hill where the panel has been conducting its interviews to sit down with lawmakers. She met for more than nine hours with the panel that has interviewed more than 800 witnesses in its investigation, reported NBC News.

The riot investigators had requested testimony and records from Guilfoyle, who spoke at the rally that Trump held on the White House Ellipse on Jan. 6, 2021. The rally happened before the riot at the US Capitol that was aimed at overturning Trump’s Presidential election loss in 2020. Guilfoyle, who was a chair of the Trump Victory Committee, which was the fundraising arm of his campaign, also raised funds for the rally, lawmakers said. She was also in direct contact with its key participants and organizers of the rally.

Last month, members of the nine-member committee issued a subpoena to Guilfoyle after she cut the voluntary interview short. Lawyer Joe Tacopina, who is representing Guilfoyle, did not comment on the meeting Monday. He previously said that his client “has done nothing wrong,” and will testify truthfully to any question.

The panel said that it has got several documents it initially requested from Guilfoyle, but is now looking to learn more about her meetings with Trump and his family members in the Oval Office on the day of the attack. Bennie Thompson, the committee’s Democratic chairman, said in a March 3 statement that Guilfoyle met with Trump inside the White House, spoke at the rally that took place before the riot, and apparently "played a key role organizing and raising funds for that event."

Her appearance is the latest in a series of sit-down interviews the panel has conducted with those in the former President's inner circle. Stephen Miller, who served as a top aide to Trump, was recently questioned virtually for about eight hours.
