Remark

A Trump administration official who met with the House Committee on Jan. 6 this week unleashed an incendiary 27-minute diatribe, calling lawmakers’ investigation into the Capitol riots racist against whites and sexist. used slogans to describe his former colleagues who also testified.

Garrett Ziegler, a former aide to President Donald Trump’s trade adviser Peter Navarro, revealed on his Telegram page that he appeared Tuesday before the House select committee investigating the January 6, 2021 attack on the United States Capitol.

Hours later, Ziegler insisted with no proof that he was targeted for his race and posted a lengthy audio file calling the probe “a Bolshevik anti-white campaign”.

“If you can’t see that, your eyes are damn closed,” Ziegler said. The CEO of the Anti-Defamation League also noticed that Ziegler’s words are also “often used as a code for Jews.”

“They see me as a young Christian that they can basically scare, right? And so, today was just saying a lot that I’m invoking my right to remain silent,” Ziegler said, insisting he’s “the least racist person many of you have ever met, by the way. I have no fanaticism.”

Ziegler also lashed out at former White House colleagues Cassidy Hutchinson, a former aide to Trump White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, and Alyssa Farah Griffin, a former White House communications director, who have both testified before the committee.

He used sexist and abusive slang words to describe them, saying they were “just awful.”

The audio circulated online late Wednesday after it was posted by the Republican Accountability Project, a group that had previously campaigned against Trump. The House of Representatives committee plans to hold its eighth public hearing on Thursday this summer.

Griffin didn’t comment publicly, but re-shared a after from ADL leader Jonathan Greenblatt on Twitter calling Ziegler’s language offensive.

In the clip, Ziegler said he spoke from Illinois and had received a subpoena on April 28, but did not express a “tantrum” about it. He said it was “painful” to fly to Washington for the hearing and that he found the whole experience “so one-sided” and lacking a Republican presence. Committee members “abhor my former boss and by extension me.”

He added that he has invoked his right to remain silent more than 100 times in response to questions from the commission.

Hutchinson appeared before the committee in late June on a lively day of testimony. She testified that Trump knew his supporters were carrying guns on the day of the riots, but urged them to go to the Capitol anyway.

Who is Cassidy Hutchinson?

She also said she cleared Trump-strewn ketchup from the walls of the White House and begged Meadows to get off his phone and quell the Capitol riots, among other claims. Trump has dismissed her testimony as “fake” and “fraudulent”. The former president has also referred to the commission as a “kangaroo court.”

CNN first reported news of the Ziegler audio clip, prompting him to reply online: “Total liars! I cherish women,” he said.

Ziegler then posted on Trump’s social media platform Truth Social that the media reports were “hit pieces” and “vicious” — repeating his misogynistic insults from Hutchinson.

Trump condemned the Jan. 6 attack in a three-minute speech on the evening of Jan. 7, after aides told him members of his cabinet were discussing appealing for the 25th Amendment to remove him from office.

However, according to those familiar with the work of the House committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack, he had difficulty doing so.

Even a day after January 6, Trump refused to condemn the violence
