Cassidy Hutchinson, a former top adviser to Donald Trump’s former Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, has recently met with the Department of Justice to cooperate with their investigation into the events of January 6th, according to a new report from ABC News.
The Justice Department reached out to her following her testimony a month ago before the House committee investigating the Jan. 6 Capitol attack, sources told ABC.
Hutchinson publicly testified before the January 6th House Select Committee earlier this month, speaking for nearly two hours as she recounted the details about what she said went on behind the scenes at the White House leading up to, during, and after the January 6th attack. Her account included descriptions of events she both witnessed directly and other events she said were described to her.
Cassidy Hutchinson is cooperating with the DOJ’s criminal probe of Jan 6. It’s now undeniable: Trump is the target.

The DOJ has already brought two top aides to former Vice President Mike Pence in front of a federal grand jury, a move that signals its probe has reached inside Donald Trump’s White House and that investigators are looking at conduct directly related to Trump and his closest allies’ efforts to overturn the 2020 election.
