Former assistant in the White House cooperates in Ga. election survey

By Sara Murray and Zachary Cohen | CNN

A prosecutor in the Atlanta area investigating Donald Trump and his allies’ efforts to overturn the 2020 election have secured the cooperation of former Trump White House aides Cassidy Hutchinsonsources familiar with the matter told CNN.

Hutchinson, whose collaboration has not previously been reported, became a prominent witness during a summer hearing before the House Select Committee investigating the Capitol Hill uprising on January 6, 2021.

The former top aide to then-White House chief of staff Mark Meadows could offer Georgia prosecutors insight into what she witnessed in the West Wing, as well as the steps her former boss took specifically when it came to Georgia.

Prosecutors have called for Meadows to testify before the special grand jury, but they are still working to secure his testimony. A hearing on the matter is scheduled for the end of October.

Meadows was among the participants in the January 2021 call between Trump and Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, and Meadows also made a surprise visit to a Cobb County location in December 2020 where officials conducted a signature audit for absentee ballots.

Hutchinson has also been cooperating with the Justice Department, which is also facing a pre-election quiet period, in its criminal investigation into efforts to undermine the 2020 election.

An attorney for Hutchinson did not respond to CNN’s requests for comment.
