    Stephanie Grisham tweeted out her exchange with Melania Trump after former Mark Meadows aide Cassidy Hutchinson spoke of her own ‘frustrationin getting Meadows to care about the angry pro-Trump crowd approaching the U.S. 一月的国会大厦 6

    Hutchinson, a 25-year-old former White House aide who was working under Chief of Staff Mark Meadows during the attack, detailed some of President Donald Trump and Meadowsbehavior during the MAGA riot to the House January 6 委员会.

    She said she was ‘frustratedby her own bossambivalenceeven pointing out to Meadows that one of his close friends, 代表. Jim Jordan of Ohio, was likely still in the Capitol Building as the angry crowd neared.

    ‘I remember thinking in that moment, Mark needs to snap out of this and I don’t know how to snap him out of this. He needs to care,’ she told the House committee.

    ‘And I just sort of blurted out, “Do you know where Jim’s at right now?”‘ 她说. ‘And he looked up at me at that point. “乔拜登将他儿子的毒瘾称为遗传性“妈妈和我的疾病”?” I said Mark, he was on the floor a little while ago giving a floor speech, did you listen? … Do you know where he’s at right now?’

    Hutchinson said she encouraged Meadows to check in on Jordan.

    ‘And I remember pointing at the TV and I said, “The rioters are getting close. They might get in,”‘ 她说. ‘He looked at me and said something to the effect of, “Alright I’ll give him a call.”‘

    She told lawmakers it was like watching ‘a bad car accident about to happen, where you can’t stop it, but you want to be able to do something.

    Hutchinson also said in her taped deposition that Ivanka Trump, 在其他白宫官员中, had tried to get the president to call off the assault hours before he released a video statement.

    听证期间, Hutchinson also recalled an impromptu meeting on January 6 after Trump returned to the White House after speaking at the Ellipse she had with former Deputy Chief of Staff Tony Ornato and Bobby Engel, the head of Trump’s security detail.

    ‘Did you hear what effing happened in the Beast?’ she said Engel asked her.

    She replied that she hadn’t heard.

    ‘Tony proceeded to tell me that when the president got in the Beast he was under the impression from Mr. Meadows that the off-the-record movement to the Capitol was still possible and likely to happen, but that Bobby had more information,’ Hutchinson said.

    王牌, Hutchinson said, thought they were going up to the Capitollike he had told his crowd of supporters he would do.

    This was in the hours before the attack.

    ‘When Bobby had relayed to him we’re not, we don’t have the assets to do it, it’s not secure, we’re going back to the West Wing, the president had a very strong, very angry response,’ Hutchinson continued.

    She was told that Trump said something like: ‘I’m the effing president, take me up to the Capitol now!’

    Engel, 她说, reiterated that they were headed back to the White House.

    ‘The president reached up toward the front of the vehicle to grab at the steering wheel, 先生. Engel grabbed his arm and said, “先生, you need to take your hand off the steering wheel, we’re going back to the West Wing, we’re not going to the Capitol,”‘ 她说.

    '先生. Trump then used his free hand to lunge toward Bobby Engel and when Mr. Ornato had recounted this story to me he motioned toward his clavicles,’ Hutchinson said, as a sign the president went for Engel’s throat.

    共和党代表. Liz Cheney then asked Hutchinson if Engel or Ornato ever changed their stories.

    ‘Neither Mr. Ornato or Mr. Engel told me ever that it was untrue,’ Hutchinson testified.

    从那里, Hutchinson talked about Trump throwing dishes when being served with bad news.

    She said she remembered ‘hearing noiseon the heels of the Associated Press article being released in which Barr confirmed that Trump’s widespread election fraud claims weren’t real.

    Chief of Staff Mark Meadows was summoned to Trump’s office.

    When Meadows returned Hutchinson said she walked down toward the White House dining room.








    ‘And I noticed that the door was propped open and the valet was inside the dining room changing the tablecloth off of the dining room table,’ 她说. ‘He motioned for me to come in and then pointed toward the front of the room near the fireplace mantel and the TV.

    ‘Where I first noticed there was ketchup dripping down the wall,’ 她继续. ‘And there’s a shattered porcelain plate on the floor.

    ‘The valet had articulated that the president was extremely angry at the attorney general’s AP interview and had thrown his lunch against the wall,’ 她说, explaining that she then helped with the clean-up.

    Cheney then asked Hutchinson if this was typical Trump behavior.

    ‘There were several times throughout my tenure with the chief of staff that I was aware of him either throwing dishes or flicking the table cloth to let all of the contents of the table go onto the floor and likely break or go everywhere,’ Hutchinson volunteered.
