Former White House aide says Trump’s chief of staff burned documents during transition

Cassidy Hutchinson, a former White House aide during the Trump administration, has claimed she saw then-chief of staff Mark Meadows often burn documentation during the final weeks of his term, according to transcripts of his statements before the committee on January.

Hutchinson, one of the star witnesses of the public hearings of the commission that was in charge of investigating what happened around the assault on the Capitol, has recounted, according to the transcripts published this Tuesday, that he saw Meadows use the fireplace of his office several times in December 2020.

“Once or twice a week…Maybe a dozen times, maybe a little more…between December and mid-January,” said Hutchinson, who has not, however, been able to specify if whatever Meadows threw into the fire were either duplicates or original first copies, or even copyrighted material.

Hutchinson also revealed that on at least two occasions this burning of documents was carried out after meeting with Republican representative Scott Perry, one of Trump’s allies accused of trying to use the Department of Justice to annul those elections in which Joe Biden left. victor.

In these latest transcripts that have been made public, Hutchinson also refers to several conversations that took place between the walls of the White House about the conspiracy theory of groups such as QAnon.
