Former Trump WH Aide Cassidy Hutchinson Is Cooperating with DOJ Probe into Jan. 6

HeadlineJul 28, 2022

A former top adviser to President Trump’s chief of staff has recently cooperated with the Department of Justice investigation into the events of January 6. That’s according to ABC, which broke news of Cassidy Hutchinson’s cooperation Wednesday as the Justice Department signaled it’s investigating former President Trump as part of its criminal probe into efforts to overturn the 2020 election.

Also on Wednesday, the Justice Department said it has obtained warrants to search the phone of Trump lawyer John Eastman. Eastman was among speakers at the infamous rally near the White House on January 6 where Trump encouraged his supporters to march on the Capitol — even though he knew many were armed.
