The Justice Department declined to comment. An attorney for Hutchinson did not respond to a request for comment.
The criminal investigation into the US Capitol attack on January 6, 2021, and attempts to disrupt the transfer of power between the Trump and Biden administrations is the most wide-ranging in the Justice Department’s history.
Hutchinson has cooperated extensively with the House select committee’s investigation into the attack on the US Capitol, having sat for four closed-door depositions. She revealed how Trump and his inner circle were warned about the potential for violence on January 6, and how Trump wanted to join the throngs of his supporters at the Capitol.
Farah Griffin, now a CNN political commentator, told CNN’s John Berman on Wednesday she had not been contacted by the Justice Department, but she was “aware of other White House officials who have been reached out to by DOJ and are planning to cooperate.”
“I don’t want to get ahead of their announcements, but I think you could piece it together based on who has testified before the January 6 committee. Again, these are not — these are related but separate-track investigations and I think DOJ is keeping an eye on who is coming before January 6 and who may have helpful information,” she said.
This story has been updated with additional information Wednesday.
CNN’s Chandelis Duster, Marshall Cohen, Zachary Cohen and Alex Rogers contributed to this report.
