The British filmmaker spoke with Thursday, where he talked about testifying before the January 6 select committee earlier in the day. For apparently quite a few White House staffers, Holder and his team spent months with the Trump family, including interviews, from before the 2020 election until the uprising on Capitol Hill on January 6. .

This contradicts his sworn testimony before the committee that his former attorney general Bill Barr said there was voter fraud. Holder said this discrepancy was the main focus of the committee.
When asked if there was anything the committee was interested in that didn’t appear in the documentary, Holder replied that there was. Pressed to explain, Holder said: “The main thing being, there’s kind of – the first part of Ivanka Trump’s reaction to her dad’s stance on the election is in the documentary, but there’s another part that was not integrated into the documentary.

Ivanka appeared before the committee for eight hours in April, and it is not yet clear whether or not they will want to speak to her again given these new revelations about her testimony. But it was clear to Holder that the committee wanted to understand the inconsistency.
“They wanted to understand exactly when that particular interview took place and how it went,” Holder said, “and I think they – well, I think a lot of people think there’s a kind of inconsistency between what she told the committee and what she told me.
Holder later added, “I don’t know what she told her father, all I know is what she told me. And there is clearly a difference between the position she told me and the position she gave to the committee.
