A photo captures the moment that Chief of Staff Mark Meadows escorted Rudy Giuliani out of the White House after December 18 strategy meeting to keep Donald Trump in office.
The Oval Office meeting, which continued past midnight, was the subject of Tuesday’s January 6 Committee hearing – featuring testimony on angry clashes.
The meeting involved a ‘heated and profane clash,’ said Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-Md.), a former impeachment manager who discussed the meeting, which came weeks before Jan. 6.
‘The Select Committee has spoken with six of the participants as well as staffers who could hear the screaming from outside the Oval Office,’ Raskin said.
‘What ensued was a heated and profane clash between this group and President Trump’s White House advisors who traded personal insults, accusations of disloyalty to the President, and even challenges to physically fight,’ he added.
White House aide Cassidy Hutchinson, who delivered a testimony last month saying that Trump knew the crowd that gathered for his rally was armed, took the photo looking down the colonnade in the West Wing at the backs of two men in blue suits walking away.
‘I take one photo of Mark of each of his days,’ Hutchinson wrote in the photo caption. ‘Tonight, it was him escorting Rudy off-campus to make sure he didn’t wander back to the Mansion.’
Former Trump campaign adviser Stephen Miller testified earlier that the former New York City mayor was ‘inebriated’ on Election Night, a claim Giuliani denied.
Hutchinson seems to suggest that during this heating meeting, the alcohol was flowing.
‘That’s why the alcohol opened,’ she wrote in a text. ‘It’s not flowing around the oval – just the outer oval.’
Then she added, ‘The West Wing is UNHINGED.’
