Hutchinson’s involvement in the Georgia investigation was not previously known.

The Fulton County investigation centers on a call Trump made to Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger after the election, asking him to “find” the 11,780 votes needed to flip the state in his favor. Trump maintained that it was a “perfect call” and that he had done nothing wrong.

A documentary filmmaker who gained access to Trump in the days following the 2020 election is also expected to cooperate with Fulton County prosecutors, CNN reported in June. Fulton County officials are looking for footage filmmaker Alex Holder has of Trump, specifically any comments he made about Gov. Brian Kemp and Raffensperger, who both denied the former president’s efforts to annul the results of the elections in the state.

While in the White House, Hutchinson served as a top aide to White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, who Georgia prosecutors have also asked to testify, according to CNN. Investigators have yet to obtain cooperation from Meadows on the matter.

Willis reportedly aims to wrap up the investigation and begin issuing indictments before the end of the year.
