She described how Mr. Meadows seemed almost petrified by the violence unfolding inside the Capitol and how he told White House counsel Pat A. Cipollone that Mr. Trump was not interested in trying to calm his supporters. “He won’t do anything, Pat,” Mrs. Hutchinson told Mr. Meadows.

For decades, from Trump’s early days in business in New York to the final moments of his presidency, several aides have tried to minimize his behavior. But except for Michael D. Cohen, Mr. Trump’s former personal attorney, few have sworn under oath to describe his temper and erratic personality as Ms. Hutchinson did.

Mr. Trump was quick to denounce Ms. Hutchinson on Truth Social, his social media network, on Tuesday as “a total fake” and “a leaker,” claiming he barely knew her. But the committee, anticipating what has become Trump’s standard response of denying any familiarity with his critics, determined through photographs of Ms. Hutchinson with top White House officials shown during the hearing that, if Representative Liz Cheney, the commission’s vice chair, said it was “in a position to know a great deal about the events of the Trump White House.”

“She worked in the West Wing, a few steps down from the Oval Office,” Mrs. Cheney said. “Mrs. Hutchinson spoke daily with members of Congress, with senior officials in the administration, with senior White House staff, including Mr. Meadows, the White House attorneys, and with Mr. Tony Ornato, who served as White House deputy chief of staff.”

Ms. Hutchinson, who grew up in New Jersey and graduated in 2019 from Christopher Newport University in Newport News, Virginia, began her career in Washington as an intern on Capitol Hill for Texas Republican Senator Ted Cruz and Louisiana Representative Steve Scalise. the second Republican of the House.

Ms. Hutchinson was in the White House, in the office of legislative affairs, when Mr. Meadows became chief of staff in March 2020. Mr. Meadows already knew Ms. Hutchinson because she had often accompanied him on and off the White House grounds when he visited as a member of the House of Representatives and leader of the conservative Freedom Caucus.
