    Default Trump reacted with approval to 'hang Mike Pence' chants from rioters on January 6

    (CNN) A former aide to Trump White House chief of staff Mark Meadows told the House January 6 committee that then-President Donald Trump had suggested to Meadows he approved of the "hang Mike Pence" chants from rioters who stormed the US Capitol, two sources familiar with the matter told CNN.

    Cassidy Hutchinson, the former aide, also testified that Trump complained about his then-vice president being hustled to safety while Trump supporters breached the Capitol, the sources said.

    Hutchinson has answered the panel's questions during three separate sessions, CNN previously reported. She went over "new ground" with the committee last week, though it was not immediately clear what was discussed during that deposition.

    Trump spokesman Taylor Budowich said that "vague leaks" from the "partisan" committee is "just an extension of the Democrat smear campaign that has been exposed time and time again for being fabricated and dishonest," adding that "Americans are tired of the Democrat lies and the charades, but, sadly, it's the only thing they have to offer."

    A spokesman for the House select committee investigating the January 6, 2021, insurrection declined to comment on both matters, which were first reported by The New York Times.

    An attorney for Meadows declined to comment to CNN. An attorney for Hutchinson did not respond to requests for comment.

    Default Trump Said to Have Reacted Approvingly to Jan. 6 Chants About Hanging Pence

    The account of Mr. Trump’s comment was initially provided to the House committee by at least one witness, according to two people briefed on their work, as the panel develops a timeline of what the president was doing during the riot.

    Another witness, Cassidy Hutchinson, a former aide to Mr. Meadows who was present in his office when he recounted Mr. Trump’s remarks, was asked by the committee about the account and confirmed it, according to the people familiar with the panel’s work. It was not immediately clear how much detailed information Ms. Hutchinson provided. She has cooperated with the committee in three separate interviews after receiving a subpoena.
