Mark Meadows Tied To January 6th Witness Intimidation Allegations

During the January 6th Committee’s surprise hearing on Tuesday, the panel brought forth a witness, Cassidy Hutchinson, to give live testimony, after she had already testified privately several times. The reported reason for this hearing being moved up was that there were concerns for the witness’ safety. Now, there’s new information available on exactly what gave them the impression that she was in danger.

Near the end of the hearing, the Committee shared some of the messages that had been sent to witnesses to shape what information they would share with the world. As seen below, these include a witness saying that they were told to “protect who I need to protect” in order to “stay in good graces in Trump World,” and a sent message that warned a witness that an unnamed individual was “thinking about” the witness, and was sure the witness would “do the right thing” in deposition.

According to new reporting from Politico, Hutchinson herself was the recipient of both of these messages — and the redacted name was Mark Meadows.

In other words, the message originally read,

“Mark Meadows let me know you have your deposition tomorrow. He wants me to let you know that he’s thinking about you. He knows you’re loyal, and you’re going to do the right thing when you go in for your deposition.”

Hutchinson indicated that she had been repeatedly contacted by various Trump allies with similar messages and warnings.

She also fired her Trump-connected attorney earlier this month, reportedly because she wanted to share more than she had already told the panel.

Donald Trump has followed up Hutchinson’s interview by trashing her character on conservative networks, claiming that he barely knew her and that nobody in the White House respected her.

Meadows’ office gave Politico a very vague statement, not actually denying the phone calls and messages but claiming that Hutchinson’s description thereof was “misleading.”

“No one from Meadows’ camp, himself or otherwise, has ever attempted to intimidate or shape Ms. Hutchinson’s testimony to the committee. Any phone call or message she is describing is at best deeply misleading.”
