Sarah Matthews

Former Trump administration deputy press secretary Sarah Matthews has as agreed to publicly testify before the House Select Committee Investigating the January 6, 2021, attack on the U.S. Capitol, according to CNN.

Citing two sources with knowledge of the investigation, the news network reported that Matthews has been subpoenaed by the House select committee investigating the insurrection and “has agreed to testify at a public hearing as early as next week.”

As noted by CNN, Matthews, resigned from the Trump White House shortly after the January 6 insurrection, saying she “was deeply disturbed by what I saw” and that “our nation needs a peaceful transfer of power.”

She had previously served as a spokesperson for Trump’s unsuccessful 2020 presidential campaign.

Matthews defended Cassidy Hutchinson after her damning testimony before the select committee, saying: “Anyone downplaying Cassidy Hutchinson’s role or her access in the West Wing either doesn’t understand how the Trump WH worked or is attempting to discredit her because they’re scared of how damning this testimony is.”

Matthews added: “For those complaining of ‘hearsay,’ I imagine the Jan. 6 committee would welcome any of those involved to deny these allegations under oath.”

The next public hearing is next Tuesday, July 12, the committee announced on Twitter.
