The House Republican Conference has publicly attacked Sarah Matthews, Trump’s former White House deputy press secretary, for testifying before the Jan. 6 Committee – despite the fact that she currently works as communications director for Republican staff of the House Select Committee on the Climate Crisis.
“Just another liar and pawn in Pelosi’s witch hunt”, House Republicans tweeted during the committee hearing on Thursday, January 6, quoting another tweet from Matthews on January 20, 2021, thanking former President Trump and former Vice President Mike Pence for their service and saying it was an honor to serve in their administration.
The tweet was quickly deleted after public backlash.
Alyssa Farah Griffin, former White House director of strategic communications, took aim at House GOP Chair Elise Stefanik (RN.Y.) on the tweet.
“.@RepStefanik, a woman I once admired, is allowing the official @HouseGOP account to be used to defame another Republican woman for bravely testifying before Congress under oath. Ashamed,” Farah Griffin tweeted. “Glad the tweet was taken down,” she later added.
Matthews offered testimony to the panel about what she saw on January 6. Matthews described a tweet sent by Trump as giving a “green light” to those attacking the Capitol.
