Mark Meadows said if he kept Trump out of jail he'd have 'done a good job' as Chief of Staff: Cassidy Hutchinson book

  • Cassidy Hutchinson in her new book wrote that Meadows spoke of his desire to keep Trump out of jail.
  • Hutchinson served as an aide to Meadows in what were the last months of the Trump administration.

Former White House aide Cassidy Hutchinson in her new memoir said that onetime White House chief of staff Mark Meadows told her that if he kept then-President Donald Trump out of jail, he'd be doing a "good job."

Hutchinson, whose memoir, "Enough," was released on Tuesday, described a White House filled with paranoia that also seemingly lacked organization.

As Hutchinson quickly rose through the ranks in Republican politics, starting as an intern on Capitol Hill at the beginning of Trump's sole term in office and culminating with her time in the White House, she had a front-seat window to some of the biggest moments within the tumultuous administration.

And in June 2020, months before the November presidential election, Meadows — a former four-term North Carolina congressman who had taken on his White House in March 2020 — gave her a blunt assessment of how he would rate his own job performance.

"Cass, if I can get through this job and manage to keep [Trump] out of jail, I'll have done a good job," Meadows told Hutchinson, per her memoir.

Meadows' tenure in the White House ended in January 2021, after Trump departed the White House to make way for incoming President Joe Biden.

Nearly three years removed from the White House, Trump now faces four criminal indictments.

Meadows himself was charged in August with two felony counts in one of the most prominent cases connected to the 2020 election — both Trump and Meadows were indicted by a Fulton County grand jury alongside 17 others over their efforts to overturn the 2020 presidential results in Georgia.

Trump has continued full steam ahead with his 2024 presidential campaign, and he remains the favorite to win the Republican nomination, as high-profile candidates including Gov. Ron DeSantis of Florida and former Gov. Nikki Haley of South Carolina have so far been unable to make a dent in the former president's national lead.

Insider has reached out to Meadows for comment.
