Matthews served as Deputy Press Secretary in the Trump White House until resigning shortly after the day of the insurrection. According to a person close to Pottinger, he stepped down in response to Trump’s reaction to his supporters breaching the capitol. The hearing on Thursday will mark the committee’s second prime-time session and committee members will examine Trump’s inaction for 187 minutes while the riots were unfolding.
