Cassidy Hutchinson: What the Jan. 6 committee's key witness knows, according to POLITICO Playbook.

Jun 28, 2022By chetan

The main witness for the January 6 committee's most recent hearing on Tuesday is reportedly Cassidy Hutchinson, a former senior adviser to former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows.

After initially believing the next hearing would not occur until July, the panel revealed on Monday that there will be a surprise presentation on June 28 to present "recently obtained evidence" and hear witness testimony.

On Monday, the committee quickly announced that it would hold a hearing on Tuesday in the afternoon to present what it called "recently received material." However, it made no mention of the type of evidence or the witnesses, which sparked a storm of conjecture.

Hutchinson, a former special assistant to Meadows, will speak live at the unexpected hearing, according to press sources. Hutchinson would be the first member of staff from the White House to publicly testify before the committee.

According to a press statement from the committee, the hearing will start at 1 p.m. on Capitol Hill. Punchbowl News previously reported on Ms. Hutchinson's anticipated testimony.

Those who have been following the inquiry into the circumstances leading up to the attack on January 6 are already familiar with Hutchinson.

Her recorded testimony, which listed six Republican politicians who appeared to have asked Donald Trump for a presidential pardon before he left office, was played during the hearing on June 23.

Anthony M. Ornato, the former White House head of operations, reportedly warned Mr. Meadows that "we had intel reports stating that there may potentially be violence on the 6th," but the White House did nothing to stop the violence, according to Ms. Hutchinson's testimony to the committee.

Ms. Hutchinson's testimony behind closed doors also revealed that at least a few Republican lawmakers were worried about facing criminal charges for their involvement in the campaign to void the election results. Ms. Hutchinson stated that following the assault on January 6, several lawmakers—including Mo Brooks of Alabama, Matt Gaetz of Florida, Louie Gohmert of Texas, Scott Perry of Pennsylvania, Andy Biggs of Arizona, and Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia—asked for pardons

Four of those individuals—some of whom specifically questioned Ms. Hutchinson—have denied doing so. On Twitter, Ms. Greene shared a video of Ms. Hutchinson and wrote, "Saying 'I heard' means you don't know. The purpose of the January 6 Witch Hunt Committee is to spread rumors and misinformation. Ms. Hutchinson was "mistaken," according to Mr. Biggs, and her evidence was "deceptively" modified.

But Mr. Brooks acknowledged that he was looking to pardon a large number of Republicans.

Hutchinson is also credited with telling the panel that Trump applauded the protesters who shouted "hang Mike Pence" in the Capitol on January 6, claiming that they "have the correct concept" and that his former vice president "deserves it."

The claim that the former president demanded that Pence be hanged is untrue.

Hutchinson was said to be expected to play a significant role in the proceedings after spending more than 20 hours in a deposition with investigators over Meadows' alleged scheme to rig the 2016 election in favor of Trump.

Additionally, Ms. Hutchinson testified that no one on the call objected to the suggestion that Mr. Perry, who currently serves as the leader of the right-wing House Freedom Caucus, encourage supporters to march to the Capitol. She made it apparent that when it came to leading a mob to the Capitol, members of Congress were "likely to go with White House instructions."

According to two persons informed on the panel's inquiries, the committee has also obtained testimony that Mr. Meadows used the fireplace in his office to burn records. When it comes to Mr. Meadows' handling of paperwork and records following the election, the committee has questioned witnesses.

Though lawmakers have left the option of calling either Mr. Trump or Mr. Pence, the panel has yet to hear directly from either of them. Virginia Thomas, the wife of Justice Clarence Thomas, has also been called to speak in private before the committee next month regarding her participation in working to have the 2020 election annulled.

Pat A. Cipollone, the former White House attorney who fought back against some of the more radical efforts to reverse the election, has been publicly requested to testify by Ms. Cheney.

Hutchinson spoke about her job in the White House during her college senior year in an interview with her student newspaper in 2018.

I frequently observed Marine One leaving the South Lawn from my office window and attended many of the president's events, including signing ceremonies, celebrations, and presidential announcements, she added. "My modest contribution to the effort to uphold the prosperity and excellence of the United States is a memory I will keep as one of the honors of my life," the speaker said.
