The 814-page report published by the House Ways and Means Committee contained quite a few bombshells. Among them is a witness statement claiming that the former White House Chief of Staff was seen burning documents in the weeks leading up to the January 6th riot.
On page 42 of the report, the exchange between the Vice President of the committee and Cassidy Hutchinson, a White House staffer, revealed that Hutchinson witnessed Mark Meadows, the then Chief of Staff, burning documents in the fireplace of the presidential residence in December and early January. Hutchinson revealed that she felt pressured by Meadows and others not to testify before the committee. The exchange unfolded as follows:
Cheney: Did you ever see Mr. Meadows destroy documents in his fireplace?
Hutchinson: Yes, ma’am.
Cheney: And do you know what the documents were?
Hutchinson: I don’t know.
Cheney: How frequently did you see him do this?
Hutchinson: It’s hard, I want to say once a week or twice […] Maybe just over a dozen, but this is over a period of December through mid-January, which is when we started lighting the fireplace.

Hutchinson also admitted that the documents could have been duplicates and that original copies could still exist. Hutchinson also added that the burning of the documents frequently occurred after Meadows met with Congressman Scott Perry.
Perry is one of the GOP members who showed support for Trump’s theory that the election was fraudulent and needed to be overturned. He was also allegedly involved in the planning of the January 6th riot.
