Sources: Trump approved of Capitol rioters’ threats against Pence
(CNN) - Former President Donald Trump reacted with approval to the chants by Capitol rioters to “hang Mike Pence” during the Jan. 6 insurrection, according to sources.
That testimony is said to come from Cassidy Hutchinson, former aide to White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows.
In another statement to the Jan. 6 select committee, the aide said Trump also complained about Pence being taken to a safe area, the sources said.
A spokesperson for the House select committee declined to comment on the aide’s testimony.
A Trump spokesman said the leaks from the committee’s investigation were “fabricated and dishonest.”
