The Facts Inside Our Reporter’s Notebook
The former Trump White House aide who on national TV gave critical first- and second-hand accounts of the former president's action related to the Jan. 6 Capitol riot reportedly continued working on Trump’s behalf for nine weeks after he left office.
The Democrat-led House’s Jan. 6 star witness Cassidy Hutchinson served as a "coordinator" for Trump's official, taxpayer-funded post-presidential office from roughly Jan. 20 to April 1 of 2021, according to government records obtained by the Insider news outlet.
Hutchinson earned an annualized salary of $90,000, the General Services Administration documents reportedly state. She worked for the "Presidential Transition Support Team, 2021 Outgoing Transition."
The documents show Hutchinson continued to earn a government paycheck for work in support of Trump for about nine weeks after she witnessed or was told about his actions on Jan. 6, 2021, even as co-workers promptly resigned, Insider also reports.
"As an American, I was disgusted. It was unpatriotic. It was un-American," Hutchinson said during her televised June 28 testimony about Trump's actions or alleged actions.
Among them was a second-hand account that Trump demanded his Secret Service security detail drive him to the Capitol to join marchers going there from a rally he had headlined outside of the White House about the disputed results of the 2020 presidential election.
Hutchinson's whereabouts after January 6 have been largely unclear. She and her lawyers did not respond to Insider's requests for comment.
Bloomberg reported that she considered joining Trump in Florida, but that Trump didn’t hire her. The Washington Post has reported Hutchinson did not have a full-time job after her White House post ended.
"Why did she want to go with us if she felt we were so terrible?" Trump posted on his Truth Social platform after Hutchinson's testimony. "I understand that she was very upset and angry that I didn't want her to go, or be a member of the team. She is bad news!"
