She is one of the people who knew what Donald Trump was scheming for January 6, 2021. Sarah Matthews served as the assistant press secretary in and out of the West Wing. When the slaughter began on that terrible day, she quit. Her loyalty was to America’s democracy not Trump’s ascendence to the nation’s first dictatorship. She will testify before the House on January 6 Select Committee at the June 12 televised hearing, The Daily Beast reported.
The younger people in the West Wing appear to be far more courageous than their absent older male counterparts. This is true, especially when it comes to the tragic January 6 failed coup by Donald Trump. Former Chief of Staff Mark Meadows will not testify, but his right-hand woman, Cassidy Hutchinson did.
Matthews said that she was “deeply disturbed” by the desecration of the Capitol Building, the symbol of our democracy. And she was one of the people casting about for a “peaceful transfer of power.” Hutchinson was always in the White House and Matthews was often there.
Matthews tweeted to defend former Chief of Staff Mark Meadows’ right-hand woman. She called out the cowards:
‘Anyone downplaying Cassidy Hutchinson’s role or her access in the West Wing either doesn’t understand how the Trump WH [White House] worked or is attempting to discredit her because they’re scared of how damning this testimony is.’
Given the death threats that Representative Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) received against him, his wife, and even their baby, Matthews’ threats came as no surprise. He sits on the House Select Committee investigating the January 6 insurrection.
Two of Trump’s administration officials, Alyssa Farah Griffin and Olivia Troye, watched Hutchinson’s testimony. Then, they reacted to it and defended her to CNN.
