Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner were subpoenaed by the Special Counsel in an investigation on January 6th

WASHINGTON– Ivanka Trump, the daughter of former President Donald Trump, and her husband Jared Kushner have been subpoenaed by Special Counsel Jack Smith, ABC News has learned.

The subpoena for the couple specifically relates to the Jan. 6 investigation by the special counsel and the activities of the former president and his allies to this day in relation to efforts to overturn the 2020 election, sources told ABC News.

Ivanka Trump and Kushner served as senior White House advisers to President Trump during his four-year tenure.

A spokesman for Ivanka Trump and Kushner did not respond to a request for comment from ABC News.

The news was first reported by the New York Times.

Smith was appointed in November to oversee the investigation into Trump’s potential misuse of classified documents after he left the presidency and his alleged obstruction of the administration’s efforts to recover them and efforts by Trump and his allies to overturn the election results.

The special counsel’s appointment was prompted by Trump’s announcement in November that he was running for president for a third time, creating a conflict of interest under the Justice Department’s special counsel guidelines.

Former Vice President Mike Pence was subpoenaed by the Special Counsel earlier this month but is expected to resist the subpoena, sources familiar with the matter told ABC News last week.
