Former White House aide Madeleine Westerhout to resume testimony

Madeleine Westerhout, who previously served as former President Donald Trump's personal secretary and later as the director of Oval Office Operations from February to August 2019, will return to the stand Friday for cross examination.

On Thursday, Westerhout said she has never been inside a courtroom before and admitted she was nervous.

Prosecutors asked questions about the infamous "Access Hollywood" tape featuring Trump in a crude conversation with former NBC News host Billy Bush.

She said it “rattled RNC leadership” and recalled conversations on how it would be possible to replace Trump as a candidate if it came to that.

Once Trump was elected, Westerhout said she worked from Trump Tower and assisted in scheduling interviews for cabinet positions and senior staff roles for the new administration.

Westerhout was nicknamed by members of the media as "The Greeter Girl."

Westerhout noted that she worked "seamlessly" with Rhona Graff, Trump's longtime assistant, and insisted she was "integral” with scheduling interviews.
