Cassidy Hutchinson, a former aide to Trump Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, told the House January 6 committee that a White House attorney warned the administration about possible criminal charges and that President Trump wanted to attend the demonstration on the capitol steps but was stopped.
Hutchinson also testified that Meadows had said Trump believed Vice President Pence deserved to be targeted by rioters, who had chanted "Hang Mike Pence."
Here are five key takeaways from Hutchinson's testimony:
George Washington University insisted Tuesday that they will continue to employ Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas as an adjunct professor.
