Not long after the rioters broke into the US Capitol, former White House Counsel Pat Cipollone rushed into Mark Meadows' office demanding a meeting with former President Donald Trump, the former White House chief of staff's aide Cassidy Hutchinson told the Jan. 6 committee.
"I remember Pat saying to him something to the effect of, 'the rioters have gotten to the Capitol. We need to go down and see the President now,'" Hutchinson said in a videotaped interview.
"And Mark looked up at him and said, 'he doesn't want to do anything, Pat,'" she said.
Cipollone emphasized the need for action to control the situation to Meadows, Hutchison added.
She said Cipollone "very clearly said this to Mark — something to the effect of, 'Mark, something needs to be done or people are going to die and the blood's going to be on your f-ing hands. This is getting out of control. I'm going down there."
Meadows then handed his phones to Hutchinson and walked out of his office with Cipollone, she told the committee.
