(TheRedWire.com) – On Sunday, during a joint interview, Cassidy Hutchinson, previously an aide at the White House, Sarah Matthews, who formerly served as the White House’s deputy press secretary, and Alyssa Farah Griffin, once the White House Communications Director, all of whom had served during the Trump administration, warned that if former President Donald Trump was reelected, it could pose a big danger to democracy.
The three women who had often criticized Trump following the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol attack told ABC News’s Jonathan Karl about their experiences with the Jan. 6 select committee. It noted their concerns regarding the country’s democracy.
Hutchinson argued that this was a “fundamental election” in helping protect the republic; she added that if the United States crumbles, it would show “that democracy is an experiment.”
Similarly, Griffin warned that if Trump won a second term in office, it would mark “the end of American democracy as we know it.” As she pointed out, Americans had previously seen how Trump had attempted to “steal a democratic election” and that this was just evidence of the lengths he was willing to go to just to stay in power.
In her statement, Matthews noted that Trump’s attempt to win back the White House has led to his rhetoric becoming “increasingly erratic” and that his threats were undermining the U.S. Constitution. She also pointed out that Trump has previously stated that he would weaponize the Department of Justice to take revenge on his political opponents.
She further argued that Trump continues to maintain that the 2020 presidential election was stolen through widespread fraud.
