(CNN)A former aide to Trump White House chief of staff Mark Meadows told the House January 6 committee that then-President Donald Trump had suggested to Meadows he approved of the “hang Mike Pence” chants from rioters who stormed the US Capitol, two sources familiar with the matter told CNN.
Cassidy Hutchinson, the former aide, also testified that Trump complained about his then-vice president being hustled to safety while Trump supporters breached the Capitol, the sources said.
Hutchinson has answered the panel’s questions during three separate sessions, CNN previously reported. She went over “new ground” with the committee last week, though it was not immediately clear what was discussed during that deposition.
