Former White House budget director and chief of staff Mick Mulvaney took a shot at his former boss Tuesday in the wake of gripping testimony about Donald Trump‘s behavior as rioters stormed the Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021.
Mr. Mulvaney, who held a variety of roles in the Trump White House including as his third chief of staff, said he believed former White House aide Cassidy Hutchinson‘s testimony Tuesday that the former president was in a confrontation with a Secret Service agent and that his top aides requested pardons related to the Capitol riot.
In a separate tweet, Mr. Mulvaney laid out several claims Ms. Hutchinson made in her testimony, including that Mr. Trump knew his supporters carried guns on Jan. 6 and that he had tried to grab the steering wheel of his security agent driving the presidential limousine and later lunged at him.
Mr. Mulvaney served as the director of the Office of Management and Budget from February 2017 to July 2020, and as acting chief of staff from January 2019 to March 2020.
He later served as the U.S. special envoy for Northern Ireland.
