Maryland holds its primary elections in July

Hello, OnPolitics readers.

News of the witnesses scheduled to testify at the next January 6 committee hearing kicks off a busy Tuesday in Washington. Matthew Pottinger and Sarah Matthews, aides to former President Donald Trump, are expected to field questions from the panel at its prime-time Jan. 21 session.

Both Pottinger and Matthews resigned from their positions because of the attack on the Capitol. Matthews, who served as deputy press secretary, issued a statement on the day of the insurrection that said she was “honored” to serve in the Trump administration but was “disturbed” by that day’s events.

Matthews also said in prerecorded testimony that Trump poured “gasoline on the fire” when he called former Vice President Mike Pence a coward in a Jan. 6, 2021 tweet.
