Donald Trump Jr. reportedly met with the House committee probing the Jan. 6 Capitol riot — a panel he has long disparaged.

Appearing remotely Tuesday, Trump fielded questions from committee members for almost three hours, refraining from asserting the Fifth Amendment and acting cordially, sources explained to CNN.

"The media literally thinks it's their job to protect the J6 Committee. How dare anyone talk about the gross abuses of the committee! Wonder what they’d do [if] it was a GOP committee investigating 1 year of BLM looting, murder, arson, and other 'peaceful' protesting???" Trump sneered on Twitter in January.

The Jan. 6 committee is investigating efforts from allies of Trump's father, former President Donald Trump, to topple the 2020 election and has voiced interest in what Trump Jr. knew regarding those endeavors. Prior to Jan. 6, Trump Jr. delivered an address at a rally near the White House Ellipse calling on Republicans in Congress to vote against certifying the election, a procedure that was taking place that same day.

When the riot unfolded, Trump Jr. privately implored then-White House chief of staff Mark Meadows to push his dad for a more aggressive reaction to the violence.

"He's got to condemn this s*** ASAP. The Capitol Police tweet is not enough," Trump Jr. texted Meadows, who shared a raft of communications with the Jan. 6 panel before he stopped cooperating.

Trump Jr. joins his fiancee, Kimberly Guilfoyle, as well as sister Ivanka, brother-in-law Jared Kushner, and an array of other Trump associates who have appeared before the Jan. 6 committee. He agreed to appear voluntarily and was not subpoenaed, according to ABC News.

Trump Jr. has been outspoken regarding his disdain for the Jan. 6 committee and has repeatedly chided it on Twitter.

The Washington Examiner reached out to a spokesperson for the Jan. 6 committee.

Trump Jr is one of nearly 1,000 witnesses the committee has interviewed as it works to assemble a record of the worst attack on the Capitol in over two centuries. He is the second of Trump’s children known to speak to the committee; Ivanka Trump sat down with lawmakers for eight hours in early April. Her husband, Jared Kushner, has further been interviewed by the committee.

Diffe allies of the former president have defied subpoenas from the committee and been referred to the justice department for potential prosecution on contempt of Congress charges. One of them, Stephen Bannon, was indicted last year after he declined to cooperate. That case is pending.

The committee of seven Democrats and two Republicans is looking to wrap up its almost 11-month investigation and shift into the public hearing phase. Hearings are supposed to start on 9 June and go on for four weeks. Lawmakers expect to bring out witnesses and present evidence in an effort to educate the public on the complete scope of the assault and Donald Trump’s part in it.
