Sarah Matthews appeared for an interview with the committee on Tuesday.

Sarah Matthews, a Trump White House press secretary who resigned over the Jan. 6 riots in the US Capitol, appeared Tuesday for an interview with the House Special Committee investigating the attack, sources familiar with her appearance said ABC News.

Matthews, who declined to comment, appeared before the committee voluntarily, a source told ABC News. She is one of several former Trump aides who were approached by the committee and are now working as a GOP congressional staffer.

“I am honored to serve in the Trump administration and proud of the policies that we have issued,” she said in a statement announcing her departure on Jan. 6, 2021. “As someone who worked in the halls of Congress, I was deeply disturbed by what I saw today. Our nation needs a peaceful transfer of power.”

According to a source, the committee questioned Matthews on Jan. 6 about White House activities while investigators work to reconstruct Trump’s Jan. 6 actions using official records and call logs from the National Archives.

Committee officials declined to comment.

The panel also successfully subpoenaed the phone records of Trump White House staffers, including former press secretary Kayleigh McEnany, ABC News previously reported.

Committee chair Bennie Thompson, D-Miss, told ABC News that the committee is scheduled to interview several former White House officials this week.

The committee has conducted nearly 500 interviews and obtained tens of thousands of pages of Trump White House records from the national archives.
