Former Trump White House Employee Resigned After the January 6 riot at the US Capitol, he is scheduled to testify publicly before the select committee investigating the incident.
Sarah Matthews, who served as deputy press secretary in the last phase of the administration, will reportedly appear in agreement at a future hearing after receiving a subpoena, according to CNN.
Ms Matthews has already testified before the committee in a videotaped testimony, part of which appeared at a hearing last month. In the clip examined by the committee, she described how she and other staff members were appalled by the scene that began in the Capitol and asked their top aides to get the president to tweet something to curb the escalation of violence.
She has also been an outspoken critic of the Trump team’s behavior that led to the January 6 events, and has spoken out to defend former teammate Cassidy Hutchinson after the latter’s devastating testimony in a recent televised hearing.
“Anyone who underestimates Cassidy Hutchinson’s role or her arrival in the West Wing either does not understand how WH Trump WH worked or is trying to discredit her because they are afraid of the condemnation of this testimony.” chirp last week.
“For those who complain about ‘rumours’, I imagine the January 6 commission would welcome any of those involved to deny these allegations under oath.”
At the time of her resignation, which she announced shortly after the uprising, she made clear her horror at the violation of the peaceful transfer of power.
“As a woman who has served in the halls of Congress, I was deeply disturbed by what I saw today,” she said in a statement issued at the time. “I will resign my position, effective immediately. Our nation needs a peaceful transition of power.”
The commission’s next public hearing is scheduled for July 12, when the commission will produce evidence and testimony on how the mob that stormed the Capitol was assembled, covering the role of extremist groups including the proud boys and oath guards.
