An aide to Mark Meadow when he was Trump White House chief of staff will testify Tuesday before the Democrat-led House Jan. 6 committee.

The aide, Meadows' "special assistant" Cassidy Hutchinson has previously told committee she saw her boss burn documents in his office after a meeting with Pennsylvania Rep. Scott Perry. 

Hutchinson has already met with committee investigators on three separate occasions. However, her scheduled testimony Tuesday will be her first time officially talking about such matters in public.

The committee had initially rescheduled all of this week’s hearings until after the House’s July 4th break, but suddenly changed course on Monday, announcing Hutchinson’s testimony. 

Hutchinson has also previously testified that several GOP lawmakers sought pardons from Trump, including Reps. Perry, Andy Biggs, Louie Gohmert, Marjorie Taylor Greene and Matt Gaetz. 

Alabama Rep. Mo Brooks had asked Trump for a pardon "for every congressman or senator who voted to reject the electoral college vote submissions of Arizona and Pennsylvania," according to email records obtained by the committee.
