Cassidy Hutchinson, a special assistant and aide to Trump’s chief of staff, Mark Meadows, will testify, a person familiar with the matter told The Associated Press. She has already provided a trove of information to the committee and its investigators and sat for multiple interviews behind closed doors.
The committee on Monday called the unexpected hearing to present “recently obtained evidence and receive witness testimony,” according to the announcement. The committee had signaled last week that it wouldn’t hold another hearing until July.
