House GOP investigators are requesting all communications between former White House aide Cassidy Hutchinson and individuals associated with the now-disbanded House select committee investigating the events of January 6, including the panel’s former vice chair, ex-Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo.

On Wednesday, Rep. Barry Loudermilk, R-Ga., chair of the Committee on House Administration’s oversight subcommittee, penned a letter to Hutchinson, requesting her communications with several individuals, including Cheney, former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows, former White House communications director Alyssa Farah Griffin, former White House deputy chief Anthony Ornato, and Secret Service agent Robert Engel, among others, Fox News reported.

Hutchinson, who published a memoir last year, was also asked for “all communications referencing or referring to potential publishing or book deals or related compensation.” established by then-Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif. During her testimony, she alleged that former President Donald Trump physically lunged at Engel, who served as his driver, after the agent declined to drive him to the U.S. Capitol. Trump and other individuals connected to the incident have refuted her allegations.

Hutchinson and Cheney appear to have grown close following her testimony. In a September 2023 MSNBC interview, Hutchinson lauded Cheney: “Liz Cheney is the leader that we all need to aspire to be, and she is the leader that we need as a country to come together and find people to elect people like Liz Cheney.”

Loudermilk’s subcommittee, which has been looking into the House Jan. 6 probe, accused the Democrat-led panel of having “failed to properly archive their records, including as many as 900 interview summaries or transcripts, over one terabyte of digital data, and over 100 deleted or encrypted documents.”

“Therefore, the Subcommittee must now determine what documents were not properly archived and assess what documents are necessary to accomplish a productive investigation. The Subcommittee has no choice but to repeat much of the work of the Select Committee to understand their investigative findings,” he wrote.

The Georgia Republican acknowledged that Hutchinson had submitted documentation to his committee that she had also provided to the Jan. 6 panel. However, he noted that she had not handed over “all records, notes, or documents prepared by you for interviews with the Select Committee or the Department of Justice,” as requested by Loudermilk earlier this year. He also highlighted that some of the information she provided, such as messages between herself and former Trump officials John Ratcliffe and Kash Patel, was not archived by the Jan. 6 committee.

“As such, the Subcommittee is working to determine why the Select Committee did not archive these documents produced by or related to you. Given the extensive interviews, lengthy errata sheet, and ex parte conversations with Select Committee Vice Chair Liz Cheney, the failure to archive certain parts of your production is concerning,” Loudermilk wrote.
