LIVE: Follow along with the January 6 committee for its sixth public hearing

The January 6 committee will host its sixth public hearing Tuesday, a decision that appears to have arrived at the 11th hour and due in large part to reported concerns of security threats posed to the day’s chief witness: Cassidy Hutchinson.  Hutchinson once served as an aide to former President Donald Trump’s chief of staff, Mark Meadows. This position permitted a unique vantage point into the happenings inside the Trump White House and, the committee argues, it has been her cooperation that has better illuminated how the 45th president and his allies in Congress rallied behind a bid to usurp the will of millions of voters and overturn the results of the 2020 election.  The former White House aide has testified that at least six Republican lawmakers sought pardons from Trump before and after Jan. 6 in hopes of avoiding any possible criminal charges they might face later. And she has offered some, albeit scant, details on an advance warning of violence that Meadows received from the Secret Service a few days before the Capitol assault.  RELATED STORY: Aide with info on pardons, Trump overturn scheme set to testify before Jan. 6 committee Her testimony will unfold live Tuesday and a stream is available below.

In a huge moment, Hutchinson testifies that Trump was made aware the mob was heavily armed and when she told Meadows, he was basically non-responsive. As for Trump, Hutchinson said she heard him saying that he didn’t care the mob had weapons. He wanted it to be visually pleasing, he wanted his mob to be let in. 

Then, he said, they could march to the Capitol.

Trump was aare the mob had weapons, Hutchinson testifies. Trump said: "I don’t effing care if they have weapons. They are not here to hurt me....Let the people in… take the f-ing [magnometers] away and then they can march to the Capitol."https://twitter.com/dailykos?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">@dailykos

After Trump's speech, Ornato waved Hutchinson into his office with the head of Trump's sec. detail looking "a little lost." Did you effing hear what happened in the beast, Trump's limo When Trump got in, he was under impression from Meadows that they could still go to the Capitol
