A White House aide in former President Donald Trump’s administration, Cassidy Hutchinson, slammed the Republican Party for continuing to support him, saying he “almost destroyed democracy in one day.”
Appearing on MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow Show, Hutchinson expressed frustration with the support Trump still enjoys from prominent Republicans.
“I think it’s extremely disappointing, and it’s not a hard issue to take,” she said. “We’re talking about a man who, at the very essence of his being, almost destroyed democracy in one day, and he wants to do it again. He wants to run for president to do it again.”
Hutchinson testified in front of the Jan. 6 committee last year, providing insight into Trump and his associates’ actions during the Capitol riot.
