U.S. Rep. Ruben Gallego, D-Arizona.

Cassidy Hutchinson, an aide to former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows, delivered a bombshell testimony on President Trump’s reaction to the Jan. 6 siege at the U.S. Capitol. Arizona Congressman Ruben Gallego said the testimony should disturb every American.

“President Trump needs to be indicted, as well as, Mark Meadows needs to be indicted." Gallego said. "There’s a clear violation — there’s a clear intent to stop us from certifying the Electoral College, which is a felony and they should be treated that way.” 

Gallego encouraged immediate action from Attorney General Merrick Garland and the Department of Justice to show that they hold people accountable for attacks on democracy.
