Former US President Donald Trump's daughter Ivanka Trump's testimony to the Jan. 6 committee investigating the Capitol riot "incriminated" her father, believes an ex-federal prosecutor.

Former federal prosecutor Glenn Kirschner told Friday on "The Stephanie Miller Show" that her testimony likely included the revelation that she was present at the White House during the riot. At the time, she apparently tried to get her father to call off his supporters, reported Business Insider. But her father refused, as per Keith Kellogg, former Trump national security advisor, said Kirschner.

Several people, including former White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany, "tried and failed" to stop him, said Kirschner. Citing Kellogg, Kirschner said that Ivanka "tried and failed, so we sent her back into the Oval Office a second time because she can be pretty tenacious, and she couldn't get her father to stop the attack on the Capitol." Kirschner pointed out, "That is a President in a very real way, waging war" against America, and said that even his own daughter couldn't stop him. According to him, that is "deeply incriminating information."

He said that presumably, "it's been provided by Ivanka under oath to the Jan. 6 committee, and if I were prosecuting the case, she would be one of the very early witnesses I called."

It's not clear what Ivanka said during her eight-hour testimony last week, but committee chair Bennie Thompson said that she was "answering questions," reported Yahoo! He told reporters that not in broad, "chatty terms, but she's answering questions."

Representative Liz Cheney said on Sunday that Ivanka's "testimony was helpful," but did not provide further detail, according to CNN.

Cheney shared that the Jan. 6 committee has "not made a decision" on criminal referrals to the Department of Justice. She added that it was "absolutely clear" that Trump and a number of people around him knew their actions were "unlawful" but "did it anyway."

The riot that happened on Jan. 6 last year left five people, including one cop, dead. Rioters were emboldened by Trump's urges to protest the results of the 2020 Presidential election with him, despite Joe Biden's win. Congress members were meeting inside the Capitol building on Jan. 6 to certify the results. That's when Trump supporters stormed the Capitol building and organized an attempted coup.
